Back Axle Refurb

It’s all go in the workshop this week as the pressure is on for Asa and John to finish the 1966 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 restoration, ready for the auction the week after next.

And quite often the case with restoration projects, just as you think things are on track you meet an unwelcomed problem.

Today, we discovered that the back axle was not in full working order and that can only mean one thing, remove the entire back section, diagnose the cause of the problem and find a solution.

Whilst the back axle was off the vehicle we felt it was only right to dismantle the individual components and give it a full refurb, including new springs, shocks as well as freshly painting the casing and exposed areas.
