I have the following

MarkVII to 420G by Thorley..excellent, mandatory, if you can obtain a copy, rare, hard back, many color pics..rating 9

MKVII-VIII-IX-X-420G Gold Portfolio..(recently obtained from ebay for <$30)Very Happy
Much period pic, text, reviews from motor mags, not many color pics, softcover...a must have if you are serious..rating 8

Jaguar Saloon Cars, Paul Skilleter..large hardback, not as specific as the other 2, not many color pics, good info. rating 7

Would also strongly recomend the following 2 titles

Power tune xk engines
Power tune SU carbs

both by Des Hammill

We have...

S Type
420
Owners Workshop Manual "Autobook 703"
(for 3.4S, 3.8S & 420 for 1963-1968)

By Kenneth Ball



We got it at the local library. It's very detailed and has been very helpful. I was the first one to borrow it from our library since 1984!!! I hope they will sell it to me!

As a note, i have the CD that covers Parts and Service manuals for MKX, 420, S-Type, 420G

HOWEVER, I only just noticed the 420G section is seriously deficient, in that the Parts manual is just a Part Number update, with no pics.

The service manual is the Mark X 4.2, which is fair enough as they are almost the same.

The way i found out, is that the bypass housing that bolts to the thermostat housing on the inlet manifold on my 420G has badly corroded stub pipes.

I went to check on 2 free engines I recently accquired both from S1 xj6

A 4.2 and a 2.8...lucky..the 2.8 bit is the same Very Happy

Different to the 4.2 xj part.

I think the water pump on the 2.8 is the same as the 420G as well, will update when confirmed

TC,
It would be an XJ6 series 1, AWG may be able to confirm this, but from memory it was a base option at the time.
