SNG Barratt have their own stocks of a lot of parts - they are always worth checking if Jaguar Classic parts don't have what you want anymore.

I have frequently found SNG have stocks of parts no longer available at JCP, or have sourced something similar. If SNG Barratt source the part directly from JCP, they will mark the part with a blue 'Special order' sign; if the part is in stock, they will mark it with a green 'In stock' sign. When they mark something as 'In stock', it means they have the item in stock, they won't be dependent on JCP to supply it.

Likewise, David manners hold stocks of items no longer available from JCP - though I have found them less frequently able to supply parts no longer available from JCP than SNG Barratt. If David Manners are sourcing the part from JCP and don't hold any themselves, they mark its availability as '2 days'. If they hold a stock, they mark the part as 'in stock'.

For David Manners, most of the in stock parts seem to be aftermarket ones. SNG Barratt however seem to hold quite a lot of genuine parts in stock.

Interesting update here.
JEC top bods have been in meetings with JCP to try and put forward the case to get more new part made up for the most in demand parts.
I would not expect anything in the immediate future, but its small steps. Hopefully something will come from it in the long run.

I put forward a long list of what i consider to be the most asked for/ in demand 40 and 300 parts. Most of those seem to have been discussed in the meeting.

Another question i put forward was whether they can even be remanufactured/ retailed at a price that owners are currently willing to pay? As its one thing making them, but if the cost is too high, i think the vast majority of owners simply won't buy. Or am i wrong?

Hi Naki

That's very encouraging news.

As to price that's a real balancing act. I would rather pay a bit more and get a quality part that will last, than something cheap which dies in a couple of years.

We're seeing some real inconsistent quality in new production batches and repro parts these days for older cars. For example Simons and vendor of Lady Ps problems with radiator header tanks and more recently I've had a bad experience with new GTV6 rear brake calipers binding, due to poor machining.

Cheers

It's the accumulator brake sphere that will eventually take most of the later 40's off the road :cry:

Hey good link, thanks for that but this one won't fit the later 4-litre cars. :cry:

Mine still holds pressure, plus I have a spare but that's only because I took a fairly low mileage car apart last summer ;)

I'm sure a lot of folks don't have spares though.

Even new old stock can be faulty as the nitrogen can leach out slowly over the 20 plus years they sit on a shelf.

It would be good if they could be re-pressurized if we sent back the cores.

They were also used on several GM cars, including Saab 9-3 or 9-5 iirc.

A local Citroën expert might be able to refurbish them, but can imagine there won't be many of those in your neck of the woods, Larry?

Yes Pim, Saabs and other GM cars - Part numbers: AC Delco 25528382; Saab 4002267; Jaguar JLM1907.

Citroens? Not many old classics survive around town, my pal had a DS and I believe there was a mechanic out in the boonies that looked after it, but all this was some time ago and he no longer has the DS ..The 2CV is quite popular though, quite a few old ladies running around town - but you bring up an interesting point ..despite Canada being bi-lingual, I haven't seen a French car dealership around here since the days when Renault LeCars were spotted here and there ..we have just about every other manufacturing country represented (well we don't have any Donkervoort's or Great Wall's yet, more's the pity :) ) but zero French cars.

cheers

I recon that owners of the XJ40 would be willing to pay the price for essential spare parts rather than putting there car into long term storage & waiting to see if someone remanufactures the part or parts , or even breaking it for spares , look at me with my brake master cylinder last month , perished rubber seals , but you try getting them , without brakes the car is scrap , so rather than scrapping the car I would be prepared to pay the price myself . I will have an update on the brake master cylinder soon , all the best to you all .
