Long time reader first time poster. I’ve been a jaguar enthusiast for a long time, I’m also a racing enthusiast and always have a couple of track cars but now I am starting to build a Jaguar race car.
To start, recently I went to an old school jaguar car shop that had sold the building and ended up getting rid of everything they had and I ended up getting some amazing stuff really so I thought I would share what I found incase anyone would find it interesting.
To start I found a full set of authentic Cosworth V12 high compression big bore Pre He pistons. I also found a pre he block that has an aluminum dry sump oil pan for a dry sump oil system. I found a pair of high lift high duration v12 camshafts! As well as a set of original uncut v12 camshafts so I can put whatever cam profile on them I want. I also have a full set of cast aluminum long runner downdraft intake manifolds for 6 downdraft webers that are stamped Group 44!
And that’s just some of the stuff I found for the v12s, I found plenty of other stuff for the XK6 engine.
I wanted to make a race engine out of what I found. If anyone wants pictures of some of the stuff I found then just let me know
