Pistons

The future3D CAD-designed crown std and long-rod versions availableNew vs Old

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).

    Heavy Duty Rod Bolts

    Often overlooked in the preparation or overhaul of race engines, rod bolts have a hard time - enduring the shock loads of every power cycle in your engine. Should you really leave such responsibility to a standard item (let alone a 30-year old standard item!)? For about £30.00 more than a set of standard bolts and nuts, we offer our uprated bolt and nut set, manufactured by ARP,one of the world's premier specialist fastener manufacturers.
    For 6 cylinder engines, includes bolt, washer and nut.

    Lipseal Crank Conversion

    When 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!
    This conversion is available for all 6 cylinder XK engines.
    Kit includes: modified, ground (as ness) and balanced crankshaft (exchange), new flywheel, modified rear seal housing (exchange).
    Price: £765.00 inc balanced not ground (customer's rope seal housing required)
    Price: £1050.00 inc ground & balanced (customer's rope seal housing required)

    Crankshaft Scraper Plates

    crankshaft scraper plate

    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!

    Price: £48.50

     

    Fluid Crankshaft Harmonic Damper

    Fluid Harmonic Damper

    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.

    Price: £495.00
