My E-type has about 70k miles on it. I need to do water pump
(growling) and clutch (worn out) and decided if I’m going to
pull the engine to do the clutch, might as well refresh it a
Are there any updated parts to use from perhaps later V12
engines? For example the front seal from the 6.0L is often
an upgrade to use when building a 5.3L. Any others like
this? Or even aftermarket alternatives that have
updated/more robust designs?
Regarding water pumps, why are new XJ12 water pumps $150 and
E-Type pumps up to $400? Are there genuine differences or
are they just trying to rob E-type owners? Obviously the
pulleys could just be pressed off and onto the new pump?
Any must do/don’t when rebuilding one of these engines other
than just general engine building process?
