    Dear Richard,

    I love watching your jaguar stories and restauration on You tube.
    Last night i was watching the barnfind episodes with the three XK120’s
    Loved the aloy! Later i found this restauration blog, i thought you might like also.
    (This example did’nt have a hole in the radiator, did they make a mistake?)
    The work is stunning!!!

    Just watched Part 5.
    You cannot fit triple carbs on a B cyl Head. Manifold Inlets do not match up with head.
    Rear of Tremec is too far to the left ??
    You do not need to remove the front damper to remove engine, just remove the two bolts on the Right side of the steering rack and move rack forward so pulley can clear crossmember.

    You need a Straight Port head.

    Watching your current white Jag 150 restoration, pretty sure that the white gutter trim around the top of the doors should be chrome, had the use of a 150 in 1959, prettiest car ever made by Jaguar. Don’t need a reply, hope this helps.

    Richard,
    I have been in the process of restoring an early (SN0084) 1958 XK150 Roadster for the past four years. I recently ran across your videos EP1-EP6 on YouTube. They are terrific! I wish I had them to view four years ago! At least I can refer to them now as I assemble the car. The car was painted last Thursday (Cotswold Blue) and after cut and buff in the next two weeks, I hope to have it home again for final assembly.
    Keep those videos coming. They are terrific!
