  1. He's a bit off with the calculations. It's a 2.228 😂😂😂 0.7854×93×93×82×4 = 2,228,079.2688 Only joking, the Ikengineering kits look to be a good bit of kit and his work looks top notch.
  2. Mine just says Quartz on the dial. I can pop it out and confirm the size later this week. However, I think from memory of measuring it in the past, it's the same size as a Smiths clock. I'll have a look tomorrow or Wednesday, work travel depending. https://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/p/smiths-classic-clock-gauge-52mm-diameter-cb-c?utm_source=Google&utm_medium=ShoppingUK&utm_campaign=ShoppingUK&vat=on&currency=GBP&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIooPZ9JCT5wIVmK3tCh1zIAasEAQYBiABEgKTl_D_BwE
  3. Go for it, as this is a good solid block as a base unit and has no issues going out to 93mm if needed. However, if you can get away with a hone or smaller rebore, then you always have the option of further life in the engine. I read that the crankshaft webs are also thicker on the 202, but can't confirm this. This block is as good as a 205. Take a look at the link below for a 202 rebuild:

    Just plain wrong!

    Would you buy it? 😁

    Why? 😭 https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Koenig-Special-Jaguar-XJS-Convertible-5-3-V12-1-of-14-Made-by-Koenig-Specials/143503366349?ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F710-53481-19255-0%2F1%3Fff3%3D4%26toolid%3D11800%26pub%3D5574873318%26campid%3D5337428289%26mpre%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fitm%2FKoenig-Special-Jaguar-XJS-Convertible-5-3-V12-1-of-14-Made-by-Koenig-Specials%2F143503366349%26srcrot%3D710-53481-19255-0%26rvr_id%3D2265953954022%26rvr_ts%3Dbfed1e1216f0a4e8c882528affe48c31&_mwBanner=1&_rdt=1&ul_noapp=true
  6. Collected the steering yesterday from Power Steering Solutions and had a bit of a general chat about old cars. Good customer service and some quality work going on in the small unit. Waiting on delivery of a new brake cylinder before I fit steering back on. There are 2 types of build I was shown, Rally car or direct replacement. I opted for direct replacement which keeps all the origanal steering lock and indicator cut outs, with original brackets for mounting. Will jump back on this thread when fitting.
  7. Actually, doing the maths it would have been much more economical to fit a 2.9 rack. 😏
  8. Fair play, that has tickled me. 😂😂😂. However, have you tried eating your crisps while driving through a roundabout with a quick rack?
  9. I'm not overly familiar with them, but I'd hazard a guess and say about 300cc. 😁
  10. Haha, a guy on our street used to have one of those spacca chariots in the late 70s. I remember me and my mate used to try racing him up the street on our pushbikes 😂😂😂
  11. Haha, I think every paragraph begins with that caution... 😁 Steering is actually quite heavy on slow manoeuvring and parking. It has a 2.4 quick rack fitted, so that might be adding a bit more effort to the steering. Oh, and I'm getting older 😂
  12. Removed my steering column today in preparation for going down the EPAS route. Job was fairly easy and can be done in under an hour. The only difficult part, but I'm not sure if it actually needs removing was the flexi coupling/knuckle joint. I'm taking this off as well to renew this as its accessible at this time. Had to unbolt the engine mount to remove it due to having a WCCM fitted. After removing the bolt from the knuckle joint and with the column now disconnected inside the car, it was just a light pull on the steering column to pull it though. Column is now on my bench, ready for me to take it to Roger Hicks (Power Steering Solutions) next Friday. Chatted with him on the phone last week and he was very helpful. I understand that you can fab these kits up at home from Corsa bits, but the quality of Rogers kits and finish is about the best on the market having spoke with people who know him. Few pics below showing how the steering comes off. Hopefully they're in order. I will follow up on this when I get the new kit and fit it. 👍
  13. I put black heatshrink over one of my blue hoses. 😁
  14. Some decent camp sites in Stratford Upon Avon and town has some nice pubs etc. Only short hop to Gaydon and the back B Road is a nice drive.
  15. Fair point and is makes the Girling sound the wise choice.
