[xk] 1954 XK120SE chassis

Listers,

I have been looking at my chassis which I brought to my house from storage
today. I will be starting on building a rolling chassis soon. My Mark V body
is at the shop having new wood made, so I am at a standstill on that project.

The middle cross-section has a hole about 4" in diameter to the left of
center. I’m thinking it is for the exhaust pipe. Does the 120 have single
exhaust? I think I have heard that the “SE” models had dual exhausts to help
give them the extra horsepower.

I guess I need to hear from any listers, if any, that have have a dual
exhaust system on their car.

The “standard” XK 120 had a single exhaust pipe that went thru the
“hole” in the left-center of the chassis…
It is my understanding that the “SE” 120’s, with the dual pipe
set-up hung below that chassis cross member… a real speed-bump banger…
Send pics of your chassis reassembly to Ted U. so he can post them
to the J-L site… I’m sure I’m not the only one would like to see something
like that…

Charles,

How do find Ted U. to send pictures to? I will be happy to send pictures of
the work in progress (if that is what you meant) as soon as I find my digital
camera. I haven’t found which box I packed it in when we moved!
