Re: Knock from left side front suspension... Polybush!

Cant blame the poly, its similar hardness to OEM but should hopefully last a few good years,at half the price, much easier to fit it to, I've snapped an M10 rod trying to press out the old metalastik bush, got it out eventually on 2nd try, was proper knackered, the metal sleeve separated completely ...

Re: Lower Radiator Support Interchangeability?

I can confirm, same part for X300 and late XJ40 as far as I'm aware. Yours might be super crusty but they can be saved generally. Flat piece of metal welded to side brackets will work just fine, you'd have to just cut some holes

Re: XJ40 Turbodiesel

There aren't many sharp edges on a Jag, I've worked on a few, only once almost lost a finger while undoing exhaust studs...... Anyhow, I do use gloves all the time now, if its heavy stuffs then mechanix wear are best, if just normal spannering etc then I use single use vinyl/latex gloves, and just c...

Re: Me XJ40.com and the future

Right then, its been a nice summery month now and would be nice to hear what the solutions to forum problems are going to be(or at least what the issues are), pics of course still don't work... :roll: Do you guys need help with them?

Re: Long weekend

Well, during that weekend I've managed to partially break right side middle exhaust box and it broke off completely yesterday so today had to take it all out... https://photos.app.goo.gl/qiWGKG2pPGtXBfZj9 Few things to mention here. The original boxes are amazing quality, past some surface rust they...

Re: Also bitten by the XJ-S bug...

Leave them as they are Pim, the Eventer has a different colour scheme and black/silver combo works ok with it, yours will look better as they are now, me thinks ;)

Knock from left side front suspension... Polybush!

I know everyone will instantly say top shocker bush... :lol: In this case though, its lower shocker bush. Mine is now knackered and needs replacing. Problem is, this tiny little bush is £30 from Jaguar! Mind you the aftermarket URO part that is very popular and cost £3 or so is absolute rubbish and ...

Re: XJ40 Turbodiesel

Its amazing how your inner arches look like, they are normally heavily rusted where the arch liner is secured to it, cant see any holes in there in your pics :)

Re: Long weekend

I just wear an old tshirt and shorts usually. Have to say Larry, if I worked like this for a month I'd loose a few stones for sure... :lol: Speaking about oil change, finally found an oil leak here too, it was leaking from the oil pressure sensor, the entire underneath of the car is proper oiled, it...
