New to group, emailing from the States, Newcastle, WA to be exact. Brit been in US for about 25 years. Had many Jags over the years, many XJ-S's, XJ-SC, XJR, XK8 and now finally a 2010 XKR.

Car is in near perfect cosmetic condition, about 45,000 on her, only hitch is she is a none runner. Previous owner was driving her, went to get an oil change, was told oil was very low, drove the car away after getting fresh oil and filter to get new tires and wouldn't start again when they went to pick it up.

They tried numerous shops to try and figure out what is wrong, one shop said engine won't turn over even with a breaker bar on the crank. Consensus was needed new engine $$$$.

So they decided to sell her because they had no idea what it might cost to repair. So now I have a non running XKR that I'm waiting to be delivered.

I've been trying to find out where I might be able to get an engine rebuild kit, forged pistons etc, so I can start researching prices, the US isn't proving to be flush with Jaguar engine parts.

Can anybody recommend some places in the UK that might have these parts, and if anybody has done an XKR engine rebuild themselves?

Thanking you in advance.

Hi Steve, and welcome to the club.

Finding a parts supplier in the UK must be easier than in the USA, and finding one that would ship out parts could prove difficult.

There is one company that is worth looking at and one I have used before for small parts.

Have a look at the David Manners Group who have a very good supply of new genuine Jaguar parts and who do ship abroad.

Let us know how you get on.
