Our piston range has now moved into a new dimension - In addition to our well-established custom forged piston service, for those at the top level of racing, we can reveal our latest weapon. Designed using state-of-the-art 3D CAD equipment and manufactured by the undisputed piston gurus at JE, these new pistons are like nothing previously seen on a Jaguar. Whilst up until now, the forged pistons available for the XK piston have been based on the original 50's design, our crown design has been developed to ensure that the air/fuel mixture is forced into an optimal space around the spark plug, allowing higher compression ratios than were previously conceivable without the usual danger of detonation on the shrouded face. Lighter than any other assembly we know (JE promised there was not another gramme could be squeezed from our design!), they are available either for conventional length con-rods, or in a long-rod format (seriously light!). Make no mistake, these are the best forged pistons available for the XK engine, and are exclusive to us! We can also offer a range of pistons for XK 6-cyl and V12 engines from standard cast pistons to big-bore forged piston conversion kits- up to 4.5 litresfrom the 6-cylinder on a standard crank (Growing to 4.7 litres with our long stroke crank kit!), and 6.1 litres from the V12 (V12 long strokes are available to order- contact us for details).

For racing applications, we recommend the use of these heavy-duty wide-blade rods.
They are reconditioned, shot-peened and supplied ready to fit with new heavy-duty bolts and nuts.
These rods have been safely used in engines developing over 330BHP.
Alternatively, we can supply Carrillo rods for the ultimate race specification.
Price from £1700.00
Price: £115.00 per set of 12 assemblies
Very easy to use & more importantly very accurate & lets you know if your rod bolts are perfect or substandard quality
Price: £225.00 per set
Full race engines sometimes suffer from the main bearing caps "fretting" against the cylinder block,
due to insufficient clamping force from ancient design bolts.
Our solution? Fit this stud kit and clamp your caps down to 130lbft!
Price: £175.00 per kit
Long-stroke cranks are available for those engaged in the never-ending search for more CC's!
New, forged V12 crank - to 84mm+ stroke Price:£4950.00
New, billet 6 cylinder crank fully counterweight version - to 125mm stroke Price:£7550.00Lipseal Crank ConversionWhen rebuilding your engine give some thought to this conversion. How many people do you know who've had trouble with the rear crankshaft "rope seal" leaking? Rectifying a leaking rope involves removing the crank, which in turn involves removing the engine! Just consider how the labour bill for this would have paid for our conversion which replaces the seal with a modern one-piece item, as found on any modern car. Other cheaper designs have tried to use a two piece seal, as found on nothing this century!
Price: £32.95 per set
These plates bolt between the sump and block and "wipe" the oil mist from the crank to minimise windage losses.Note:Due to the individuality of engines, these plates are not supplied ready-to-fit and will require matching to your own unit. They are still however a far quicker and easier option than making your own from scratch!
Traditional rubber bonded dampers can suffer from the rubber perishing or becoming contaminated. At best this will result in the outer ring moving slightly and so giving incorrect ignition timing readings, at worst the ring could come separated at high revs....
These dampers use a fully enclosed silicone fluid as the damping medium which can absorb torsional vibrations at all engine speeds. The timing marks are also solidly linked to the centre, ensuring reliable timing every time. Kit comes with all necessary brackets and fasteners and a new anodised aluminium pulley.
These 'beautifully made' anodised aluminium plugs 'set off' an engine rebuild along with being a modern, lightweight material.
Price: £52.50 per set
Aluminium, magnetic gearbox drain plug Price: £6.60
Superceding our high-capacity pump, this modified pump has been developed in conjunction with the original manufacturer and offers 30% increased flow over the standard setup.
Price: £560.00 - To suit early spec engines
Price: £595.00 - To suit later spec engines - (includes early spec drive gear)
We can now offer our redesigned relief valve for increased maximum oil pressure for high power engines. By virtue of a higher capacity body and an uprated internal spring, peak oil pressure is raised 25%
Big-bore oil pickup pipes available for E-type and XK150
New - early two bolt oil pressure pipe
For E-types only. Kit comes with pickup pipe as above and uprated sump baffle to help prevent oil surge under heavy cornering.
Our new specification braided cam feed pipe features stainless steel construction throughout and is backed by a lifetime guarrantee. These camfeed pipes will not crack under vibration and also make an attractive alternative to the factory item.As a further bonus, we supply them with a vastly improved sealing washer, eliminating the ever-present leak found to the rear of so many XK engines.
This pipe provides a return for those using a side-exit oil filter housing in conjunction with an E-type or MOD sump.
This kit allows you to convert from the old canister type oil filter to the modern (and more effective!) scew-on type. Please contact us for applications. Kit includes: adaptor, all fixings and seals, new filter.
We have now had our own starters produced. No more adapter plates, these have a bespoke mounting flange to ensure exact location. The starter itself is of the gear reduction type, bringing twice the cranking torque whilst drawing only half the current of the original item. And they only weigh half as much! drawing half the current! Fitment:
We can also supply a starter for V12's for £295 and an offset item for special applications for £330.
For the dedicated racer we have these excellent flywheels which use a smaller diameter ring gear and an offset, high-torque, geared starter motor for reduced inertia. Machined to take 7.25" clutch. Kit includes: flywheel, starter motor, new, uprated flywheel bolts.
