    Hi and thanks,
    I have looked on another Daimler vin plate I have,
    and they have put the engine number down the same as the body number,
    I ask as I have a Daimler body shell,and have found the body number,i did not get the shell with an ID,
    but I do have a Daimler logbook,and as you may know,logbooks don't show body numbers,
    I have got a new ID plate and want to stamp the numbers in,just want to tie it all together,
    v8 engine number zf gearbox number body number and vin number,

    DONE - Coventy Foundation and Homersimpson's reply moved from your thread to Homersimpson's new thread.

    Please check you thread - I'm in a hotel in Poitiers, France with an internet connection speed of about one byte per week so post moving is quite a challenge!

    It is a pain to have to do that and still not as flexible as the original insert method.

    Posting a complaint/suggestion in Jaguar Forums Feedback & Suggestion Centre forum is the way to bring it to the attention of forum owner, Internet Brands techies.

    I'm presently in southern Spain and will be driving back to the UK over the next two days so won't have much time, if any, on the forum.

    I agree - the "update" where images now auto-size to the available screen is a backwards step.

    I also liked to post pictures of my chosen size throughout posts but this is no longer possible. Apparently that update and the latest "infinite scroll" provides a better experience for the increasing numbers accessing the forum though smartphones and tablets.

    Hello Jon,
    Where would you recommend I start the new thread on converting our Jag XK140? In the Classic XK section? Or is there another section that might get broader visibility?

    I've done some research on Tri Y but it seems that this would be a plumbing nightmare for the straight six as I would have to connect cylinders 1 and 6 together !!! 2 & 5 and 3 & 4, I have plotted the straight 6 re H pipe, with some interesting thoughts, I will ping it to you over the weekend, it looks like the best plan is an H but offset slightly so one end is further downstream than the other because of the offset on the exhaust pulses. I don't think this occurs on the V8, but I will plot it out too and see what happens.
