Chris says: ‘Ex­pe­ri­ence with an E-type Series 1 showed that re­plac­ing the orig­i­nal Stromberg car­bu­ret­tors with SUs im­proved run­ning. When the ig­ni­tion started play­ing up I fit­ted SNG Bar­ratt’s ig­ni­tion con­ver­sion kit – it’s more ef­fi­cient but still looks orig­i­nal. The en­gine is pretty bombproof – hav­ing been de­vel­oped by Jaguar for use in its cars at Le Mans – so I was ad­vised by other own­ers to leave it alone. The other es­sen­tial ad­di­tions re­late to se­cu­rity – you have to do what you can to keep your car safe.
