Woolworths Racing Jaguar 3.4 Saloon

Chris Wigdor brought his very interesting Mk1 in for a rolling road tune. The car has a very interesting past. The car is a Special Equipment example first registered on the 22nd October 1958 having been ordered directly from Jaguar by FW Woolworth & Co. to competition specification including close ratio gearbox and high ratio steering box.  The engine modifications were carried out initially at Jaguar by its celebrated tuner and development engineer Ron Beatty. The current owner uses it for sprints and hill climbs, its most recent success being an outright win in the Bugatti Owners’ Club pre-1972 Handicap at Prescott in October 2012.

Arden Engineering’s Jaguar MkX

Reg Hester brought this huge Jaguar MkX down today. This car was once owned by Jim Whitehouse of Arden Engineering. After some recent engine trouble and a rebuild we thought it best to make sure everything was running just as it should.

SU carburettor rebuild, Jaguar engine tune

A set of 3 HD8 carburetors on a Jaguar E-type 4.2 fully rebuilt. We’ve fitted new bushes and reamed them to size and replaced the spindles. The carbs were reassembled with all new components and gaskets, refitted to the car before it gets rolling road tuned. We can rebuild Webers too.
