Testing the Jaguar E-Type Engine Temperature

Our 1968 Jaguar E-Type has developed some issues with paintwork under the bonnet. Around the top of the engine the paintwork seems to be bubbling which suggests a reaction occurring between the paint and the engine.

Our first thoughts steer us towards a possible engine temperature issue.

Upon closer inspection there are no visible temperature issues. We have adjusted the carburettors and tightened up a couple of the exhaust nuts but the temperature is reading perfectly.

It could be an issue with the original paintwork but we will continue to investigate all possible outcomes.
