Good morning. By chance is there anyone on this forum within a reasonable distance of Cincinnati, Ohio? I’ve got my deceased father’s E-type and want to get it running again. He had completely rebuilt it, but then never drove it so it now doesn’t start. With the help of someone late last year, I was able to get it to make a spark again (points were corroded), but it still can’t start (presumably the carbs need to be loved on), and I’m by no means a car guy. And sure, I could have it taken somewhere, but I’d prefer to work with someone who loves these cars as much as my father did, rather than some faceless company.
Anyone interested in helping to get this kitten to purr?
If no one on Jag-Lovers steps forward you might contact the folks in the Cincinnati Jaguar Club.

I went to Kilgour School in 1977.
Does that help?

It’s been 20 years since Rod installed new floor boards/sills in my E, but his work was great.
Please let me know if you have success, as I will be looking to get my 66 FHC running soon and will need a contact.
Good afternoon John, just wondering if you had any success on locating some expertise…
