Its surprising how it puts people off to look at one. But when you think that most of the pipes and wires are feeding 12 injectors, and 1/3 of the available room is taken up by the air conditioning compressor, its a bit easier to get your head around. Sadly, garages often used to take the mickey and only change the plugs they could get to. I've had a couple of V-12's where the front plugs were Jaguar originals and seized in.
This thread is bad for me. I'm getting the itch again.
