2.1 - MKVII-MKIX Manuals and Book Info ( Greg Bernier,  March 14, 2005 )

The "Xk120/Mark VII"service manual (with supplemental pages for later
models), and the Mark VIII parts manual are musts. There are several good
illustrated books out there, among the best being Nigel Thorley's "Jaguar
Mark VII to 420G...The Complete Companion" and Brooklands Books "Jaguar Mk
VII, VIII, IX, X, 420G Gold Portfolio". If you can get your hands on an
original Autobooks "XK120, 140, 150, Mk 7,8,9 Owner's Workshop Manual", it
is also a very good supplement to the official Service Manual, with lots of
how-to illustrations.

2.1.1 - Must-have MkII references ( Tom Carson,  November 20, 2003 )

Tom Carson wrote on November 20, 2003:

If you plan to renovate your Mark 2, I found three other books, besides
the factory shop manual and a good supply of catalogs from suppliers
around the globe, to be very useful:

1) Practical Classics& Car Restoration's: "MK 2 Jaguar Restoration",
by Kelsey Publishing Limited
2) Practical Classics& Car Restoration's: "On Classic Trim", by Kelsey
3) Jaguar World's: "Jaguar 6 Cylinder Engine Overhaul (1948-1986), by
Kelsey Publishing Limited

Jaguar MKI and MKII: The Complete Companion
by Nigel Thorley - I note on Amazon they have 1 new and three used
copies..may want to check eBay for a cheaper copy.

You may want to try and track down a copy of the Jaguar Spares book for the
MK2 as it has pretty good diagrams which will help.

2.1.2 - S-type Books ( Adrian Boulding,  March 12, 2003 )

Adrian Boulding offers this advice on March 12,2003

The book you will want for the restoration is by
James Taylor ''Jaguar S Type and 420, the Complete Story'', published
by Crowood. Contains all the details of specs and how they changed
over time during the production run.
