If anyone knows a way to get information thru my vin number I would love it if someone could point me in the right direction?

  4. Funny you say that, because I rarely see any Jaguars on the road unless they are wayyyyy outta town cruising I dont see many. However ur right Jaguars have become a big hit again. Definitely good to see. As long as they stay away from the parts I need! Just being silly.☕ Karl S.
  5. I did find something today under the hood on the drivers fender it was under I think it's the pump for the wiper fluid but didnt follow the wires to far was looking for the vin number. However I found a plate under the pump and it read on to "Ue2T53166BW and 8L10497-L", and then on the bottom it read "5T10910 and 015/26078". Not sure if it's a parts number or what the deal is here. I'm awfully confused. Been looking for 2 days now and tomorrow is the good ole fashion third time is a charm. Thank you again for your assistance hope to hear from ya again soon. Kar

  10. Hello everyone: Im pretty new to mechanics especially to the sweet jaguar. I got myself my dream car. Shes a beauty, got really lucky with her, however she sat for 27 years. Does anyone have any idea where i need to start to gaurentee she is rode worthy? I am thinking about starting with the fuel tanks and make sure they are free of rust and maybe put in some sorta coating inside the tank to help with future risting. Does that sound like a good start? Please any advise would be helpful. Thank you so much in advance. From what the fellas that dropped her off says, she starts and runs.

  12. And where and how do i acquire a logbook or owner and repair manuals and original welcome to jaguar booklets they handed out when purchased of the show room floor
  13. Man im having the same problem. Im a proud owner of a 74 xj6L series 2 4.2L shes cherry too, but i know nithing about cars let alone a jaguar. However to kinda answer your question the vin number should b in the window/dashboard on the drivers side. And then i discovered a plate inside the drivers door, but unfortunately i cant read it is worn down and has over spray from a paint job i imagine it had at one point. I would liaf pictures but its not letting me. However so i kept looking thought maybe on the fire wall there should b aomething or on the engine. Nothing on the fire wall, but found
