Here is a list of all standard models
'46 - '60 and the Lucas distributor service numbers which are stamped on
the outside of the body. There are at least three outer bodies that I am
aware of, and three Bakelite caps, leaving out the 4 cylinder. In many
cases the differences are internal, such as different weights and springs.
I believe nearly all distributor assemblies are interchangeable in all
engines, except of course the 4-cyl., but would not necessarily give the
optimal performance; and naturally one would not put a DXA6A with manual
advance from a Mark IV into a later car. The source is "Jaguar Cars"
by C.L. VanDiest c.1962, a general repair manual covering the cars listed
below. For some reason the distributors for pushrod cars are only given
as D*** numbers and the DOHC are only given as 40*** numbers, though I
happen to know the MkV and early XK120 distributors are virtually identical
except for the springs.
