    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.

    https://www.gt40s.com/threads/chucks...d.52688/page-2

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

    Hi Chuck, looking good on the engine build, thanks for the update

    No need to stop here, yes the limits are low but there are easy ways around it. As most of us do on the many forums we use, check out a pic hosting site such as Postimage.org or similar, we used to use Photobucket but they seemed to go a little haywire.

    They're free and you can add thousands of pictures there, all stored for free. Then it's a case of simply inserting the link to the picture here, all very simple

    Cheers Chuck

    Thanks Jim.

    I prefer not to set up yet another location for posting pictures and then adding links. Getting too complicated.

    I will continue to post over at GT40s.com where there is no limit on picture posts. From time to time I will stop by and post a link to the most recent posts at that location for those that want to follow from this thread.

    Hey Chuck, no problem, whatever floats your boat as they say

    Possibly like you, I and quite a few others are members of perhaps several forums if not more, each forum obviously has different rules, posting limits, image limits etc etc etc

    I think that most of us feel having the original on your pc etc is fine, but having them stored in a central location where they can easily be found and or distributed / located etc, generally makes for an easier life all round

    I'm sure anyone that's interested in this thread will just as easily follow the link to your GT40's forum to see if you want to go down that route too.

    All my best

    A lot has happened since I last posted on this forum. As previously noted, I no longer am posting here due to the limitations on pictures. If interested, the saga continues over at www.GT40s.com.

    Here is a link that will pick about around where the last post left off: https://www.gt40s.com/threads/chucks...d.52688/page-3

    I would welcome anyone that is interested joining they folks over at GT40s.com and chiming in. I need all the feedback I can get venturing into these uncharted waters

    Chuck
