Hi from Oxford V12 Jag nut
« on: November 17, 2015, 06:42:28 PM »
Hello all,

Got here looking at that crazy XJS repair/ restoration. Done one or 2 like that in the past myself, well maybe not quite soooo rotten.
My current project is remaking all the unobtainable parts from the V12 TWR race engines, So far so good just had my 1st pair of big cam carriers made and the Big inlets manifolds everyone denies exist. Hunted theses down in the USA and brought them over. Got some f the stuff up on facebook here

So looking for a good machine shop that could do work at a reasonable price I guess

Hello there!  :wave:

Guess who's doing the crazy XJS restoration  :loco:  :palm:  :lol: Yep... me  :wave:

If you find any TWR pistons, please let me know.... I'm desperate for a set. Even if you know the part number for them, that would help, I can try to get Cosworth to make me a new lot with the part number....

Can't see your Facebook page, I'm afraid, I don't have an account - so any pics you can link would be most interesting!

Cheers!
Ade.

Hi there, XJR5006,

Welcome to Mad Modders.   :wave:   :wave:   :wave: 

Go into the 'Gallery' department on the Index page - you'll find all the instructions/explanation you need to get pictures to illustrate your posts.

Please, please, get FastStone Resizer and resize your pics to the recommended size - scrolling back and forth
across and up & down big photos is the Forum equivalent of 'toothache in the gearbox'!!   :lol:   :lol:   :lol: 
Best regards,

Pete W.

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, you haven't seen the latest design change-note!

Er....... Yes double valve cut outs + bowl in the middle & handed , PA part number maybe PA1534 or something like that.
Forget getting Cosworth to get anything for you, If you even get anyone interested and they miraculously come up with one of the destroyed diagrams of the piston they will get it remade in China for maybe 3k for a set and have you waiting for what they say is 16 weeks but will run to 6 months, but maybe you know this already.

Also haev the tooling for the fabled Group A inlets, the big cam carriers etc etc but sold the last set of Group A headers a while ago, sorry.
