    The level of detail (in the write ups as well as the engineering) is fascinating.

    Seeing the end result of all this work will be tremendous, but I'm really enjoying the story too.

    Thanks!

    WOW to building a second engine to use in an actual LeMans D-type so the first would be preserved. That means the owner is actively using the car. That is so great.
    The whole set-up is wonderful. A converted warehouse with two floors for living and the shop just downstairs.
    Thanks for the excellent pictures and detailed descriptions. Learning tons. Keep them coming.

    Engine Details


    The Jag six cylinder was in production for some sixty years and came in three primary displacements: 3.4, 3.8 and 4.2. They look about the same but there are differences. The D Type originally had a 3.4 and later a 3.8 liter engine (with a wide angle head and dry sump) but we opted to go with a 4.2 block. It is the most recent version, is readily available, and obviously has a larger displacement. Here are a couple construction progress photos.

    Well, it looks like we have a problem.

    I cannot upload pictures because I have reached my 3.8 meg limit.

    Sort of puts an end to my build blog on this forum.

    I am running a parallel blog over at GT40s.com, which does not have such restrictions. Here is the link to the most recent posts.

    If someone can tell me how to get around the space limit on photos let me know and I will keep posting.
