    But for some the apparent complexity makes it a very scary option. So there you have it, a glorious engine hidden under a complicated dressing. Although there are many neglected examples around, with some careful attention going through each system a stage at a time will ensure many happy years of sheer motoring joy.

    I have an XJS, and this really helped me understand things better. Is there a good resource for diagrams? There is lots of info on line, I found the AJ6 Engineering web site very informative, and the forums on the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club are great.

    Also look at the JagLovers web site which has downloadable books for free. Curious if anyone has adapted later fuel injection and coil on plug ignition on one of these beasts. Love the idea of a v12 project car but it seems like with todays tech there should be a better way. There are also bolt on conversions, often using two ECUs with each one doing one bank of six cylinders. This works very well and is great for getting every last drop of performance out of that magnificent engine.

    Ralph thanks so much! The exhaust valve is the deeply recessed one in the H. I was just testing to see if anyone was paying attention. Ralph, I reckon this is the best written article on the V12 I have read, and I think I have read them all. I am building a replica Ferrari Daytona and putting a Jag Engine in it. I currently have an early Etype V12 but intend to put a 6. I intend to make it the best it can be I am also looking for a good manual box to go on it thought of using a Tremec any thoughts…..

    Again great write up……… Regards Keith Groves. Most bolt on ecu systems only cater for us to 8 cylinders, so you may have to double up and run it as two straight sixes, which has been done many times in the past. The stock engine is good for over rpm, race engines can go to !

    Times that by twelve cylinders and you need a fairly meaty ecu to do it justice. Have a word with the guys at AJ6 Engineering first, but what ever system you use make sure there is local support.

    Sounds like a great project, all the very best of luck to you. When I finished Uni I was by pure accident offered a job at Mclaren by Ron Dennis but did not know who he was, nor that I was in the Mclaren Workshops because I was in the back of the workshop and there were no cars nor indication thereof.. Keith, Very interested to hear you are building a Ferrari Daytona replica.

    Have you contacted the Daytona Replica Club? We all have these cars and the guys who built their own have a wealth of experience they would be very willing to share with you.

    Well, could be a number of things really! First do the usual of checking for spark and fuel. Usually wiring connections suffer when a car is laid up so check the ignition system is getting power, ground and a good trigger signal. Check the ECU connections and check that the injectors are firing. Check for fuel pressure, pumps can stick due to old fuel and can sometimes be jolted back to life with a gentle tap or briefly running them with the power reversed. Also check the distributor cap, sometimes moisture condenses in there causing problems.
