I am fit­ting a 3.4 litre en­gine and 5 speed box from a rusty but 50,000 mile 1984 XJ6 into a 1957 Jaguar Mk1 2.4. How­ever, the sump is foul­ing the anti roll bar. Do I swap the sump or the ARB?


It’s up to you re­ally. The 2.4 sump will fit, but the XJ sump will clear the cross­mem­ber. The best all round so­lu­tion is to fit the front anti roll bar from a 3.8 litre S Type as this solves the prob­lem and is use­ful is a series of han­dling up­grades. A Mark 2 rear axle and front discs are es­sen­tial re­ally.
