[xk] 1959 XK 150 OTS Parts Needed

Kevin I looked right thru the lucas listing on E bay cant see any 150 horns
Model is 1748 and according to the cattledog they were used on Aston
Martin - austin cambridge and jag they are a flat horn with a dome nut in
the centre they mount vertically on the bumper iron and are HI / LO
frequency Hard to find mainly because they were mounted on a laminated
spring steel bracket which broke easily .

Kevin there are a pair of horns on E-bay right now. Go to “LUCAS JAGUAR”
I purchased the bent shift lever from Bill Tracy in FLA @
bill_tracy@webtv.net
It was good quality (don’t forget to order the two rubber gizmos that
hold it in place).

non original units make sure they are two wire hook up otherwise you will
have to run a relay

Jerry,
When you say “flat 150 horns” are you referring to the shape of the top of
the horn? There is a set on ebay right now that Mad Ludwig pointed out the
have a “domed” top. Are these correct for the 150? If so I will probably
bid on them, if not I will wait. Let me know what you think. The link
is… http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2404270067 Thanks.
Sincerely,
Kevin Cryan

Kevin,
The flat 150 horns are hard to find. I have one set between three cars.
Both
are inoperable, and the rebuild list at SNG is over $300.00 each. Plus,
like
Terry H. mentions, one has broken bracket, which I’ll have to find or
make.
So…for the OTS, I bought a set of Hella horns from Girots garage for
$69.00. The shape is very similar, and they have an upright bracket that
will bolt right to the bumper bracket. They even have two connections on
each horn for the factory wiring, no relay required. They’re red, but
painted black, maybe you could get by with them while you look around.
BTW,
they’re really LOUD! The repo shift levers are practically
indistguishable

from the original. Comparision shop prices. Trans. dip stick; gee, with
all
the boxes out there, someone has to have an extra.

Hello all,
I am looking for a few parts for my 1959 XK 150 OTS and was hoping that some
of you may have some of them or be able to point me in the right direction
as to where I may find them. The parts are as follows…

  1. Pair of Lucas Horns (High and Low)
  2. Transmission Dip Stick (Chrome does not have to be great as I plan to
    have it redone)
  3. “Bent” Gear Shift Lever (Again, Chrome does not have to be great as I
    plan to have it redone)
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
    Sincerely,
    Kevin Cryan

Dear Mad Ludwig,
Thanks for the heads up on ebay. Are they correct for the 150? Also thanks
for letting me know about Bill Tracy. Was the gear shift you got from him
original or reproduction? Thanks.

Thanks for the help. I assume someone does have an old dip stick laying
around somewhere… but where?

Hi everybody,
The three types of XK horns are shown on page 84 of Porters book. The ones
in question on Ebay are not the flat 150 type.

Kevin:
Not sure about whether the horns, item 2404270067, are for a 150
The Bill Tracy’s bent shift lever is a reproduction if I am not mistaken.
You might want to sent him a note and ask.
Ernie Wagner

Phil Porter’s “Original Jaguar XK” book says 150’s had flat-style horns.

Kevin,
The items on e-bay are not 150 horns. The pair are possibly MG, the single unit may be E-type. I’ll be sending you pictures this afternoon, front & rear, of genuine 150 horns. If you want, they’re yours but I haven’t tested them. I got them off e-bay & just packed them away. They look just like my originals & I don’t even know if they work.
I’ll also post them to the library if anyone else wants to see what they look like.
They are Lucas & the numbers are: L-12V 70063F, H-1748, with a date of 10/58.
The other one is: L-12V 70063E, H1748, with a date of 4/57.

                           Regards,  Otto M. 

(not to be confused with the EVIL Otto, out there somewhere)

Otto,
That would be great! I would definately be interested in taking them off of
your hands. If you would like to contact me off list I can be reached at
@Kevin_Cryan . Thanks.

tone like the original,plus they blast at 125 db.
The size is he same as the originals 4-7/8"inch dia.x2/12"deep overall.the
outer rims are chrome & can be painted .Cost was $88.88 plus S/H
Part#o1js3195U list$100.00
