Get to find out what the "F" is wrong with the jag engine tonight.


Got electrical BS figured out then tried to crank newly rebuilt engine, tried hard to crank first time, second time almost turned over but heard a "clunk", third crank nada.

Hand turning C/wrench results in turning both ways, to a point, so covers gotta come off to see WTF kind of bullshit we have to deal with now.


I'm about to the point of saying fuQ it to these classic cars. Give me a new car


Good news, 68' HOPEFULLY ready to get picked up September!

Don't overlook a clutch/trans problem especially if a stick shift. No lie knew someone used wrong bolts and engine wouldn't crank(bolt may be too long and hitting). Just a thought if nothing obvious with valves, i would uncouple trans before diggin into engine. Seen a couple times trans issues were the culprit. Once the flexplate was binding, can't remember if it was wrong replacement/installed wrong or a convertor issue though. Memory not serving me well sorry.
Anyway best of luck, not easy to jump into a project someone else did 90% of the work.

My dad scored a 65 GTO because of this. Very good condition, rebuilt 400, no rips in the interior. $800.00 in 1986
