    1963. I actually held up on the engine rebuild to complete the Spartan Laser. Priorities out of whack maybe?

Seems the new oil banjos bottomed out in the head and severely restricted oil flow. At least the top end no longer rattles. Trivia time: Can you ID my metal mistress?

    Ah, that does sound like quite the mechanical adventure!

    Alas, I am not very familiar with older jaguars, but after seeing reiseman's post and doing some quick google-fu, I'd have to agree with him!
