Re: Asymmetric steering/suspension

Very interesting, never heard of camber adjustment on a 40. Normally if its out of spec it means something is bent somewhere but I suppose shims can help sometimes.

Re: Fuel Pump removal XJ81 or late models 93/94

Are 40 fuel lines flexy or solid? X300 came with a mixure, some x300 come with solid lines(pain to remove), some are flexi(much easier to deal with).

Re: XJ40 Turbodiesel

There is a guy on tinternets(possibly from one of the baltic states) that shaved off something like 300kg+ of his 40 with heavy mods plus replaced things like water pump with electric, etc. Sadly that was few good years ago and I cant find the links at the moment but there is definitely a lot of roo...

Re: XJ40 Turbodiesel

I would only consider welding it up if the mechanism itself was broken into pieces, as they sometimes do. If all plastic bits are ok, I'd rather fix it, there is nothing complicated about it, other than the mechanism, just a few gear rods(that get fluffed up from headlining leftovers and stuck event...

Re: XJ40 Turbodiesel

Hah, that's even slightly worse then I expected :lol: Great work and re cavity wax, don't bother just yet as too many welding areas and you don't want to set car on fire again :lol: Weld it all up then drill small holes into sections you want to spray wax into and then either weld up holes or plug i...

Re: Negative rear camber

Put car on axle stands, remove wheel, mark position of the head bolt so you dont mess up toe, then remove bolt and lift the hub up and you'll see the bearings, they are cheap enough to just swap them out as a maintenance item by now, all mine were shot or seized solid with rust :) Sometimes hub can ...

Re: Elsa_My first Jag_1994 3.2s

Have you ever had the wings off on this car? If you didn't and inside is dry I'd take them off and proper seal with more paint and whatnot, if its a keeper you ought to do it, otherwise it will rust eventually.

Monsoon conditions here too.

Re: Negative rear camber

Fulcrum bearings can be done in situ, if you have a welder it makes the whole job much easier. If the bearings are shot, it will be pretty obvious when you undo the wheel/hub nut. If all components are ok at the rear end then camber is set with spacers between driveshaft and diff, toe can be adjuste...

Re: XJ40 Turbodiesel

I had my old x300 baking in the sun for 2 months without rain, last year, and when opened up that corner section it was packed with water and that damn foamy crap that Jaguar packed in there. Whoever thought it was a good idea to do it should be rounded up against a wall... :evil: Its an old design ...
