Bksabath..... Nice ride! Here's my last completed project--a 1964 Jaguar Fixed-Head Coupe...... I just finished full restoration. For a 6-cylinder, it runs really well....

The instrumentation and "electrics" are Lucas. The saying among Jaguar owners.....: "Why do the British drink warm beer?"......

The response: "Because they have Lucas refrigerators....!"

Wiring an F5X ought to be easy, after rennovating an XK-E dashboard....!

Now, back to other "off topic" topics....!

Ta for the warning. Having been in the Navy for a bit I have seen my share of both good and bad docks - and sometimes the neighborhood they are in.

Visited Venice a couple of times and tied up right downtown. Wonderful place to visit. I think I had the worlds best calamari at one of the restaurants there.

Remembering the Irish part of my bloodline I decided to listen to one of my favorite Irish singers today. Van Morrison - Candy Dulfer Live Rockpalast - YouTube

Not the best audio quality (fair) - but a good show and some great music.

Cheers!!!

WoW!!!!! Really GREAT job CanAm Man!!!! I was lead to believe that getting the carb's synced was a *itch and of course the electrical system in the Jag's and MG's are famous for driving their owners and garage mechanics NUTS!!!!!!

That baby looks to be in concourse condition - are you gonna show her?

Congratulations!!!!!

Oops, 70, have to start censoring my foul language habits around here.

Last year, at the ETF, Martina Schoener's Garrard 401 sounded wonderfull, spent quite a few hours listening to the TT and Mr Gerhard's works.
Problem with building/rebuilding worthwhile turntables is the arm/cartridge upgrade (e.g. in the Loricraft 401, the Naim Aro arm and Lyra Skala cartridge add +$6K easily to the final outcome)

That $6K is not a problem for me in the least Jacco. It is sooooooo far out of the equation that I don't even have to spend anytime whatsoever considering it. Just grab a good needle out of mum's sewing kit and toss it in there - good to go!!! (Is that screaming I hear going on? Crying?)

As to the Dike Alert - well Rotterdam has some very nice ones there - as I'm sure you are well aware of. I got to see those on a couple of visits there as well.

When at sea everyone has to take their turn I,m told. some I gather like the roll play and stick with it.

I would like to hear that set-up. I have a pair of Joachim Gerhard's Sonics speakers and they are wonderful, uncoloured and no exaggerations. You need to add a few more bucks for his head amp/eq in Martina's setup.

Thanks for the kind words..... seems as though I'm bouncing from one project to another....and I though retirement was going to be RELAXING....!

As for sync'ing the carbs..... I cheat..... a great little tool for doing the hard work.....

As for showing the XK-E..... Probably so--there are some tractor pulls later this summer, and I plan on entering the Jag in the "British Car That Runs Most of the Time" category....(!).....

VERY very sweet! If you think Lucas is bad try a Maserati! Mixed Lucas Bosch Marelli electrics joined up by a knitter who had dropped the wool and a twin plug head and distributor with double rotors! But what a sweet engine. The V12 Jags were a pain as the studs which held the heads down used to corrode badly making any top end work an absolute nightmare. IF you could get them out without damage to heads or block you needed to get high quality SS copies made.

Well - if the electrical and carbs are sorted out you at least have a chance!!!

Hell - the electric wuz f'ed up on my English 10 speed and all it had was a headlight and tail light run off of one of those little generator thingy's that rubbed against the front wheel. Want to have more light to see where you are going???? Peddle faster mate!!!!
