Brand new to the forum and brand new to the classic Jag world in general.
I purchased a rust bucket of a 1955 Mark VII M last year and have been slowly working on it. But I need some help.
The latest section was the rear end and getting that checked out since its probably been sitting in the same spot for the last 30 years. However, when I was disassembling everything, I came across something rather unsettling. When I was taking the rear shocks off of the leaf spring U-bolt plate, I noticed that the shock is only being secured by a cotter pin… Is that normal? There was no bolt, there wasnt even any threads suggesting that there was supposed to be a bolt.
So I just wondering if that was normal or if was some sort of weird hack job.
I appreciate any help.
