    I have been working on this for a while trying to overcome a hot stall issue and have eaten up the valve guides while doing such. He emailed earlier this week to see if I would still want to sell it, and I said no. But after thinking things over that night, I wrote back the next morning and said OK.

    He has Jaguar expertise and garage space, neither of which I possess. So now the Studebaker is free to roam and I have two empty spaces in the driveway again.

    Yeah, I took a financial beating on the Jaguar, but truth be told I usually at least break even. I am not in this as a business, so I figure I am miles ahead even with the occasional hiccup - or in this case, a Jaguar-sized hairball. It was a lovely car to drive, and I enjoyed having it.

    December 26, - Winterized and running briefly - The convertible top is not sealing well around the forward edge, so I finally got the hardtop back on. It is a very nice-looking setup, and even has upholstered covers for the securing clamps inset image. I also cranked her up - the car fired immediately even though I have not started it in almost a week and ran smoothly for a couple of minutes before it died.

    This time I caught it on video, which is posted on You-Tube at: Possible ignition or emission system issues. I'll keep researching and seeing what I can find as potential issues. If you have an idea or suggestion on how to fix it, please email me! Frustration is a stupid reason to dump the car for so much less than what I have in it - besides, only a couple of folks have been interested even at a giveaway price. I plan to get back into diagnostic mode and keep at it.

    If troubleshooting takes months longer to sort the car out, so be it. And if I don't succeed, well, Spring is a better time to sell a convertible anyway! The car started right up and ran well today, but as it warmed up it stumbled and died. I suspect it is running on the cold start circuit and the main circuit is not working. I pulled and swapped a lot of relays when i was trying to diagnose the problem, and probably put a bad one in it.

    I'll get in there next weekend and see about swapping things out again. I have a bunch of relays. If I fix it, I'll raise the price. The oil is right up to the level and clean as new, coolant is fine, no smoke, no leaks. The weather finally cooperated, and I was able to get the Jaguar in the air and get the modulator valve replaced.

    On the plus side, the job took less than an hour, and the new part was a perfect replacement. The car started right up and idled fine, and the smoke cleared up quickly. I let it idle again and it stalled. Now it does not want to start. I'll play with it a bit more - I am pretty sure that the modulator valve was a problem, but something else is not right. I suspect the Jag will be posted on Craig's List soon. September 17, - Engineer de Sade?

    What the manual did NOT show was the resonator which blocks removal of the valve. Jaguar makes lovely cars that are fun to drive, but their engineers either got degrees from the British equivalent of , or the Marguis de Sade. I'm leaning towards the Marque de Sade. The Jag will have to sit a while longer until I can get her up in the air enough to remove the exhaust. I'll check it out later this week. Keep your fingers crossed! However, the coil makes no difference. She will start up and run badly, putting out oil smoke, then stall out.
