African classic car rally preparation

 We have been asked to rally prepare a 1966 Jaguar 3.8ltr S type to do a 26 day tour around Southern Africa.

We started with the engine rebuild.


New pistons and 0.030" over size with new 0.020"crank bearings were installed.

This was a quality rebore and rebuild
The 3.8 liter Jaguar engine.
The suspensions were rebuilt in 2005, this included all brakes, servo and hoses, note the new stainless exhaust system.
The splines are as new.
We have a long list of tasks to complete before the car is ready, this includes mounting the two new wire wheels inside the back of the car once we remove the all leather seats and trims.
There will be a Terratrip Meter, which may also have a GPS function, plus an EPIRB and Satellite Phone.
Busy days ahead?
