Forum conversation reference
This page has been put together to host pictures to illustrate issues and provide visual clues to Jensen C-V8 issues. As a member of the Jensen Owners Club (you should join if you are not a member) you get access to the C-V8 Tech forum. It is made up of owners, experts, JOC staff and others that all contribute expertise and advice. During the conversations that take place pictures are often required. I host mine here on this page so I can keep track of it all. If you are a member of the JOC you can contact me via the personal message facility on the forum. I can also be contacted via the contact page on the is site.

Jensen C-V8 104/2140 had been brought to Mk3 specification by Jensen Motors prior to being sent to Africa for the use of the British Ambassador. This "update" included dual circuit brakes and an electrically heated rear screen. The toggle switch (labelled "REAR DEMIST") is on the left of the cigarette lighter and the slider on the transmission has been left untouched (not blanked).
