    I found J&J through youtube sponsored videos. They have been awesome. I am doing a difficult restore/build with a Volvo 2006 XC90 and they have been invaluable in getting good quality parts that match up with what I need, including knowing what parts cross over from other vehicles. And the staff was patient with me. They have been a lifesaver.

      Mr. Wizard i bought a 56k mile Lexus SC400 engine from LKQ on ebay once, and of coarse I let it set for over a year before I did anything with it because it was a year before finding the car in my plan. The engine had last been registered 12 years prior. This is what happens when you pull an engine and don't drain the antifreeze. Every water port in the entire engine was plugged solid and it had eat up the head gaskets and started eating the aluminum heads. I had to dig it all out with a screw driver and get the heads cut down .012 to try and clean them up. other than that the engine was perfect and it lasted me 8 years until I sold the car and I still see it around so I think it's still going 14 years later. The moral of the story drain the antifreeze when you pull and engine for long term. It really wasn't in an ocean.

    Why would you replace a fuel injection system with a carburetor. Admittedly the Lucas system is unreliable, but surely there is a modern injection system you could fit to this engine? On DD Speed Shop he had a modern fuel injection system that went onto a 57 Chevy engine. Surely there must be something for the Jag V12?

If eBay doesn't find in your favour then go to the bank or paypal or whatever system you used to buy the engine. As this is sale is clearly fraud, they have to reverse the charge back to your account.

    Just file an Ebay dispute, if the seller doesn't come up with solution in 3 business days ask Ebay to step in and help. They will force seller to provide means of return and a refund. If Ebay is retarded for any reason or it's been more than 30 days since delivery you can also file a Paypal dispute.

    The 6-litre Jaguar V12 (1993-97) runs on Nippon-Denso disttibutor-less fuel injection with coil packs, akin to Ford EDIS-6 system. If you hadn't already had the intakes for a carburetted set-up, I'd have suggested you keep the stock ignition system and swap the transmission with a Getrag-290 manual.

    I'd suggest a power steering rack (hydraulic rack preferably). Saves the arm workout in slow moving traffic, weighs up nicely with increase in speed and gives you very nice steering feedback. Win win win. I don't know if it'll fit in your budget, but of it can then go for it.

    Dropped spindles won't let you move the steering linkage. Dropped spindles just move the spindle. The a-arms mounting points will stay the same. If you move the steering linkage with all that staying the same, you will get excessive bumpsteer. I think I would go with a different motor mount design if possible.

    Weezaard (in my worst Hovie impression ๐Ÿคฃ )- I used to do custom fab at a speed shop and have done a few custom swaps like this, including a 500cid caddie in a '66 Le Mans (essentially the same chassis and the caddie mounts are almost in exactly the same spot as the jag mounts) where the owner wanted EVERYTHING I made to be bolt-in, including the motor mount adapter plates. Yes, there are companies that claim to sell kits to do this swap, we found that NOTHING that they sold fit right. I have not had a set of drop spindles for an A body in my hands for probably 14years, BUT, the point of drop spindles is to drop the axle shaft UP on the spindle body moving the whole car down relative to the wheel, without changing the steering geometry. If designed _correctly_ they should not change the location of your steering linkage. You often see people running bump steer kits with them not because the tie rod mounts/steering linkage has been moved, but because they are trying to fix some other problem. On the swap I mentioned, on one side I used a Mopar slant 6 motor mount (the same idea as the mount you showed but the body is smaller and rectangular) and a 70's El Dorado mount on the other side to clear the exhaust (on the body side it mounts with a stud like the mount that you're using). I ended up making the adapter plates out of 1/2" which raised everything up just a hair allowing me to cut a notch in the bottom edge of the plates to clear the linkage. I'm betting just that would fix your problem. If not, or if you don't want the engine up a hair, then typically the idler and steering box mount have some adjustment to them to level out the centerlink, adjust them all the way down (maybe even extend the slots and or there are ways to safely bend the idler and pitman arm also), and if you need it use a bump steer kit (on most setups that spaces the linkage down on the spindle side)- who cares if you even induce some bump steer, almost everything has it from the factory and you're not building road race monster, you'll never notice. Finally, I'd suggest staying away from R&P conversions. Customers love those things because they want a "modern suspension," and bragging rights. The fact is that they did not gain popularity in the 80's because they worked better, but because they're smaller, lighter and easier to package (kind of like MacPherson struts). Notice that in more critical applications, like trucks, they still haven't been completely replaced by a R&P. Besides the fact that the old school steering box is more durable, gives better road feedback, is adjustable... most R&P setups are designed for spindles with shorter steering arms, different control arm geometry and a very different K-member assembly in the car. It seems like people rarely talk about this when they brag about their modern R&P steering, but you end up with an odd steering ratio/boost, loss of turning radius, even more induced bump steer, and a steering shaft connection that is often under the front corner of the engine so you end up having to add joints and other monkey business to the steering shaft. You end up with something that never feels like any sane factory would do to a car, it's just weird/not right, turns 3 point turns into 9point, and you end up hearing the power steering pump inside the car (the multiple u-joints are solid, rather than the flexible factory "rag joint.")

    Awesome what a brilliant idea, I am fully in support. You are breaking new ground in US automotive engineering. For the first time in American history, someone has taken a V8 out of a car and fitted a V12, I am only half American. Do you know how to tell when a down home, all Mercan as Apfel Strudel go to Church Sunday's God fearing pilgrim mechanic is totally incompetent?. its very simple. One asks how many V12 engines he has exchanged for V8's. If the answer is zero and he is over 25 employ him. Other wise laugh him off. And enquire. was it perchance the Lucas opus/bosh Jetronic injection or the Magnetto Marelli system that defeated his, silky diagnostic skills?. I am a former Team Toleman/Carlsberg Class One offshore powerboat, Chief race engineer. Running Broadspeed Jaguar V12's and subsequently the Bonner Engines Jag V12's, These where stroked 8ltr twin turbo engines we ran at circa 800 Bhp and we had great success with them in comparison with the 482 Cu In blown Chevy with TRS drive Mercruiser's we used to run, but they ended up costing Ted Toleman the world championship due to regularly exploding one year and Mercruiser didn't let us play with them ourselves, they had "no tamper" seals all over and acted like they knew everything, so we built our own instead out of Jag V12's, when I say 800 Bhp, that was a continuous rating in flat calm water. with courses often 90 miles in a single leg. Trouble was, then we broke everything else but the engines.:-( But our team won the world F1 inshore championship in 1986 with our driver Bob Spalding, with Evinrude outboard power, so Mr Carlsberg kept paying the bills for a bit.:-) facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10156891415130960&set=pb.608810959.-2207520000..&type=3

    I would definitely go with the rack and pinion steering. It will definitely give you more clearance and improved handling. There should be all kinds of Mustang II custom steering parts available to make it work on your project. That's been the standard rack and pinion system for custom work for a long long time.
