Can anyone in the UK recommend a good engineering workshop to carry out a complete head rebuild , new tappets , guides , valves etc , etc , and put it all back together , ready to pop back on .
Perhaps Ken Jenkins might be able to help you.
He supplied the stuff and advice I needed when I did mine 2 years ago. Although I did it myself.
It’s important to use a jaguar specialist, as opposed to a general chancer. Plenty of those out there. ! But I guess you know that already.
Is it for the Mk7 or the MK2?
It’s for the mk 10 , compressions are low , tappets are noisy and the oil was as black as tar , so I think it’s time !
Hmm from your description it’s hard to understand why you think it’s just the head that needs a rebuild
Just hoping Phil , 20 char .
Did you do a wet compression test ?
Is your engine a 4.2 or 3.8?
The spoonful of oil test ? , Yes , increased the compressions a bit . It’s a 4.2 .
send me a private message I might be able to help.
