[E-Type] Illustrated Parts Manual

Does anyone know it an illustrated parts manual exist for
the Series 1 & 2 as it does for the Series 3?

I use my Series 3 IPM as sort’a “E-Type for Idiots” and
it is a great help both for taking things apart as well as
putting them back together again.

The J37 manual for the S1 is comparable to the manual for the S3 and is
illustrated with many plates showing various assemblies.

But no such thing exists exclusively for the S2. The IPL 5/2 manual
from Jaguar might make you think that it stands for “Ilustrated Parts
List” but it really means “Interim Parts List”.

Basically a typewritten collection of the changes from the S1 cars to
the S2 cars with a few illustrations from the S1’s thrown in just to
confuse you. Also many sections just say, “For further information
consult the J37 manual”.

Restoring an S2 car without having an unmolested one sitting next to it
for comparison is something of a challenge. Think of how bad it must be
to deal with a S 1.5 with all of it’s changes back and forth between the
S1 and S2.

Yes, it is put out by jaguar cars division and is called ‘spare parts
catalogue; jaguar 4.2 E-Type’
If I remember correctly, I bought mine some years ago from Barrett’s in
the UK.

Truer words were never spoken. And having an “unmolested” sitting next to
yours is not necessarily a guarantee that “yours” should be exactly the same.
At yesterday’s concours in Boca Raton, FL several of we “Series II” types
chatted for hours on the subject, comparing cars, notes, and getting certain
interested parties to pose for pics with our cars!

Formal judging being what it may, that informal sharing of information is
invaluable. Along those lines, I have a car that is a full restoration but
which I have a lot of confidence in as to authenticity. I’ll be happy to
provide specific information or digital pictures of specific areas/parts/fits
to anyone who asks for them. I’ll also include comments on varying opinions
if I have any for that particular issue. I should hastily include, John
Walker is tired of hearing from me I’m sure, but he’s been a fantastic asset
to bounce questions off.

I can vouch for Bob’s SII. Having seen it several months ago, his SII is as
stunning as they get. Though my SII is almost completely original from new,
it can’t compare to the efforts, hard work, and love Bob put into his car.
Nice work Bob (again).
I’m now very sorry I missed the show considering I live a few miles from it,
but it was totally necessary for me to be elsewhere during the show. :frowning: Hope
to see you in Orlando Bob! Since your SII makes mine look second rate, I
think I’ll drive the Triumph up this time! :slight_smile:

You can get a non Jaguar parts catalogue from SC parts on
www.scparts.co.uk

This shows S1 in the main and S2 drawings where differences exist.

J37 is the “Official” designation for the Series 1 parts manual. It was
originally a 4 ring loose leaf notebook format. Most of the
reproductions seem to copy that format.

Almost all of the major suppliers carry them. I think I may have gotten
mine several years ago from British Auto. I know I got the IPL 5/2
supplement for the Series 2 from XK’s Unlimited. The original Series 3
parts manual was given to me by a friend who found it at a yard sale for
$5 and remembered my interest in e-types!

I also have Chiltons, Glenn and other aftermarket service manuals that I
have found in used bookstores.

Just call any of the major vendors an tell them that you are looking for
copies of the original Jaguar parts manuals for whatever series.
They’ll know what you are looking for and if they carry it. Most of the
manuals are in the $50 and up range!
