[collectibles] Help!

Hello! I am new to the Forum and the (at the moment) not-so-proud
owner of a 1969 Jaguar XKE 4.2 2+2. The body is beautiful but the
engine came in a box.
I am having great difficulty finding parts. I’ve ordered the shop
manual, but am finding as I piece my motor together that I am
missing many parts, for ex, motor mounts, trans plate, valve cover,
etc. The pictures that I need to try and view what’s missing are
not in my shop manual. I’ve searched high and low for someone who
will work with me in finding a good source for the parts. So far,
no luck. I’ve tried various places on the Web, i.e. jaguarsouth.com
and others. Nothing. Does anyone out there have a reliable source
for some of these hard-to-find parts?? (I have no part numbers…I
am a shade tree mechanic trying to rebuild this motor in my
garage!!) Thanks to any who can help me!!_________________

Hi Vince,

Firstly, welcome to Jag-Lovers, you will be able to find the
help/infromation you need to get your XKE back on the road
BUT you will need to re-post your question on the E-Type
list. :slight_smile:

Kind regards,

Vince,

In addition to joining the E-Type list, if you have questions

specific to the XK engine, join the “XK engine” list as there is a lot
of expertise there specific to the engines.
