120 Touring Kit

120 Touring Kit

Service Bulletin 122A, Apr 53: Continental Touring Kit: This SB was for
Home Trade Circulation only, so presumably the kits were only available in
GB. ... Such kits were available for Mk IV, V VII and XK120 models...

Jaguar Minor Replacement Outfit
 In view of long journeys which may be undertaken in districts remote from
immediate servicing facilities, all Jaguar cars exported from England are
supplied with minor replacement outfit detailed below. Items such as lamp
bulbs and sparking plugs are included since they can be replaced with no
more than a few moments delay on a journey. Hoses, flexible feed pipes and
gaskets are included in case of damage which may be caused to the original
parts after decarbonising or top overhauling. Other items are aupplied for
convience of owners, who need not anticipate the need for their use for

Just to extend the range, I have a local friend who still has the 1956
XK140 OTS he bought in 1957 in Rochester, Minnesota.  When he bought the
car, he found a Continental Touring Kit (including head gasket, full set of
light bulbs, spark plugs, and assorted other items described earlier in
this thread) that the previous owner had gotten new with the vehicle.  The
last time I checked, he was still carrying it around in his boot.  It may
take awhile, but I'll try to get a list of what the kit includes for you.
