Job # 2077 (BP) - Jaguar 4.2
Engine, triple SU carb rebuild, 5 speed conversion..

Update report - July 31, 2014

We have now installed the rebuilt engine and carbs into your Mk VII engine bay. We had to cut some relief into the right hand inner wing in order to provide clearance for the triple carbs and K&N filters. Matt in the Coachworks fabricated a box to protect the carbs from road grime thrown up by the right front wheel. We have also built and installed the new five speed transmission and we expect to be test running everything early next week.
