 Although we work on most British classic motors, we specialise in the Jaguar six cylinder engine, (click here for Youtube clip) and have recently expanded and upgraded our workshops so are able to accommodate the Jaguar V12 as well. We also rebuild classic race engines including American pushrod and OHC engines and the Cosworth DFV.

Graham Williams, an engine builder with over 50 years in racing and motor engineering assembles each engine personally, and through our MASTERCLASSES offers a unique opportunity to those who wish to have a 'hands on' experience of their engine rebuild.

It is with regret that we can no longer offer the industry standard guarantee of 12 months or 12,000 miles on original castings and parts as they are now 40-60 years old. Threads which appear servicable one day can fail the next, The porosity of blocks and heads can only be guaranteed on the day of testing.

Please call to discuss!

Getting your engine to us is not a problem as we have a truck with an integral crane capable of lifting a ton at a time, and carrying a 2 ton load.


See below or on our contact page for details. 

We also make DVDs that show you how to rebuild and maintain engines.

Masterclasses  are for those who wish to rebuild their own engine using our facilities with as much or little assistance/tuition as they wish.

Editor of Classic Car Mart - Keith Moody documented his experience with us in his serialised article 'Saves The Amazon'. The 1st instalment of this was in the October 2010 issue and continued until December 2010.

We are accredited preparers for The Masters Racing Series so we can supply and maintain any race engines they use.
