If it is the R380 anyone who works on classic Jaguar transmissions should be able to help as that is why they were originally designed.

New Ashcroft transmission is tight to go in to reverse. Clutch and its components all new and were adjusted.
Do not know what to do.

On the back of the shift housing is the reverse lamp switch; unscrew it a couple turns and see if it shifts into reverse correctly. If it does, add a washer and re-fit and it should be fine.

after all it seems like it is clutch issue. It goes in reverse no problem, when the engine is off, and tight when it is on.
Next question: good LR mechanic in MD/VA area?
Open to suggestions.
Help.

Give Pierre a call at 4x4 Land in Chantilly http://www.4x4-land.com/main.asp

I bought my 90 in the area and had him look it over before sealing the deal. Then, had him address any issues he thought necessary and change fluids, etc., before driving her home to NY. Very happy with his assessment of the truck and the attention/honesty he gave to a customer he knew he wouldn't see again.

It likely just needs bleeding or adjusting the free play at the master. There must be someone closer to his neck of the woods - Gustavo uses a guy named Andrew (but don't recall any details) and Trevor is still closer than Paul.

Car is finally fixed.
4x4 Land in Chantilly did the magic!
Third mechanic, so far, trying to fix transmission, and successfully completing it. Last one told me that a new transmission from Ashcroft was defective and that I need to exchange it. And it actually a clutch and a fly wheel.
Works like a clock now.
First time that I enjoy driving it on a way home.

I used that shop once and they are pretty good. When I went there the son did all the talking and the father did all the work. If they weren't in West Bumfuk I would use them more often. As it is I go to Dewey Cheatham Motors on Spruell Drive in Kensington.

West Bumfuk is far nicer than East Bumfuk though! And clearly we have better mechanics too

I think this is the place a friend of mine uses. If it is, he described them as doing good work at a very reasonable price, and id not seem to want to over sell him on things. He said there were two guys who spent have their year here, and the other half overseas, then switched? Something like that.

Nice to hear your problem got fixed Dmitry. If you can come this far for a mechanic you can make it to HH one month!
