Jagcad,
I think you're right about sack of tomatoes(Sacramento, sorry) probably being where the yard is. The dismantlers up there have listing on Craigslist from time to time. I use Row52 for searching local pick n pull yards. It's not bad. It gives current stock w/ row number. Helps narrow it down. Sorry if this thread jacking.

Also helps if I read every post. My bad. Sorry for wasting space.

there is a spark when it doesn't start up on a hot one, the candles are always dry. It looks like the nozzles are turning off.

Your finger is pointing to the coolant temperature transmitter for the EFI module, and just to the right of it is another, smaller one that provides the signal for the engine temperature gauge.

PS : I still can't believe somebody took this car to a scrap yard !!

I can believe that someone got fed up with it not running, running up repair bills trying to get it fixed. Then saying the hell with it and the junkyard will give me $XX for it. Take it away, please.

I'm with you !!!! Wow, what a great example of the specie.

1. Emotions. Done by the PO or a significant other !!!

I will admit to something similar. Decades ago, I acquired a 58 Pontiac Star Chief tudor hard top.
Very clean example of Detroit's art deco chrome craze. Lots of power from it's big V8/.
I fixed a few ills. Suspension, brakes and a bust "freeze plug" in the left head. At the rear. that ook a "bodge" for access. but, a new plug seated. . ;

Then, alas, No start issue. I did all kids of things. None worked. Emotion set in. I sent it to the "junk yard" !!!! Wowee, a month or so later, I saw it on the streets @@@@..

Much later and bereft of emption, I figured it out. Timing chain jumped!!!!

1) I found bolt on adapters for SWAP. what advise?
2) What are the options to legally register a jaguar after Swap?
I want to swap ls3 and manual transmission+ air suspension

I have a swap experience, I made my Toyota Supra swap in my garage, but everything was pretty simple there.

Hi, beautiful car you rescued from the junkyard, it looks better than most "good" condition ones for sale on the east coast. It truly is the mythic unicorn "barn find" still all original survivor car. It's yours to do with as you please but if the engine etc is working well now, I'd leave it as is until something major goes poof. If you really want to make a high performance heavily customized ( engine swap, suspension mods, strip interior to drift racing style etc ) I would sell it to a collector and use the proceeds to buy one already "lumped" or one with a solid body / blown engine and go from there. Just my option, but I think the cars with the original engines will start climbing in value in the near future simply because of the rate at which the rough examples are being scrapped. I know of four crushed at various U-pull type yards near me just recently ( not counting the field find, parts only car I just saved from the crusher ).

If I wasn't already out of Jag funding ( and on the opposite coast too ! ) I'd make you an offer myself.
Whatever you decide, you have a very nice Jag, enjoy it !

Cheers,
Brian

Yesterday was at the Golden Week Kyusha Festival, afraid that the jaguar would not make it, it was the first trip 30 miles one way) everything went fine. Upon return, I bought the ignition wires, replaced, nothing has changed, the engine is still not working stably.

18-20 yeas ago I ran my Series III with 235/60x15 tires on 15x7 wheels. The wheels were positive offset but I can't remember the specs. No problems with fit, nor any room to spare. But the car didn't like the particular tires I selected. It tramlined badly.

Cheers
