Standard transmission with a four-speed manual system: with overdrive.
Internally. an enlarged-bore 3. 8 L (231 inÂ³). 220 bhp (164. 1 kW) DOHC straight-6 replaced the previous 3. 4 L (210 inÂ³) 190 bhp (141. 7 kW) unit. The B-type head of the Mark VIII was retained. but with a chamfer at the bottom of the combustion chamber to accommodate the enlarged bore. Twin HD6 1. 75" SU carburettors were fitted. A smaller electromagnetically controlled auxiliary carburettor was placed between the main pair of carburettors to act as a choke. It often proved troublesome in operation and many were converted to manual switching . Standard compression ratio was 8:1. but a higher performance 9:1 compression ratio was also available. as was a 7:1 compression ratio for export markets. such as Africa. where quality of petrol was sometimes a problem.
The Mark IX was the first production Jaguar to offer four-wheel servo-assisted Dunlop disc brakes and recirculating ball power steering. which were now standard equipment. The brake system included a vacuum reserve tank to preserve braking in the event that the engine stalled. On models with automatic transmission. the brakes were equipped with an electromagnetic valve that maintained brake pressure at rest when the brake pedal was released to prevent the car from rolling back on an incline. hence its name "Hill Holder". The Hill Holder was often troublesome (failing to release the brakes when the accelerator was depressed) and was disconnected on most cars without ill effect.
The power steering was driven by a Hobourn-Eaton pump. operating at 600-650 psi. It was attached to the back of the generator and allowed the steering to be geared up to 3. 5 turns lock-to-lock as against the 4. 5 turns for the Mark VII and VIII models.
The sunshine roof became a standard fitting for the UK market. The interior was in the same luxurious mode with extensive use of leather. walnut wood trim and deep pile carpet. A range of single and duo-tone paint schemes was offered.
