Our 1968 Jaguar 240 has returned for the annual check over with some remedial work to be carried out. A full service and MOT will
As part of the re-commissioning of our 1968 Jaguar 240 the customer has decided to fit the vehicle with a set of multi-spoke Jaguar wheels. In order to carry out this task firstly we need to replace the existing hubs with new ones, supplied to us from the guys MWS.
Easier said than done, the hubs were seized sold and a lot of time and force needed to be taken to released the old ready for the new.
Our work is almost complete on our Jaguar 240. On our first test run we found that the brakes were binding ever so slight. Enough for it to be frustrating and not a very pleasurable drive.
Back on the ramp we go as we now strip the brakes to investigate the issue.
The brakes are heavily corroded so we have stripped them back to clean up. Once this is completed we’ll get her back on the road to carry out test drive number 2.
Whilst in our workshops we are also in the process of re-fitting a steering column bush to prevent the movement in the steering column.
A couple of areas on the underside needed addressing whilst the car was in with us so we carried out the necessary repairs. We also stripped back the remaining areas, cleaned and removed all service rust and debris.
Once we had completed this task we under sealed the entire car to prolong the life of the exposed areas.
Our 1968 Jaguar 240 has returned for the annual check over with some remedial work to be carried out.
A full service and MOT will also be completed whilst in our workshops. We have a couple of electrical issues to resolve with the low ignition light repeatedly flashing.
A brand new Quadoptic Halogen headlight conversion has also be fitted. Fitting modern halogen headlamps is one of the most worthwhile safety improvements you can make to your classic car.

Having been stored locally in a garage in Ipswich for many years our latest addition is our 1968 Jaguar 240.
At present she’s a non runner with the brakes completely seized but after a little TLC we’ll have her back up and running in no time.
Due to our current workload we are considering selling her on as a restoration project but we’ll see.
Our 1967 Jaguar 240 is in with us this week to investigate an issue with the clutch leaking.
Upon further inspection the slave cylinder looks to be almost new, however, the master cylinder is in need of replacing.
Thanks to SNG Barratt as always for supplying us with a brand new master cylinder and now that it’s fitted up its time for a few test runs.
