Re: 6.0 extra air valve EBC1198

It appears that you'll need one of these: https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/F026T03038-Bosch-Thermostat-Classic-Parts-Genuine-Part/1009378133 Considering the full price of full valve I'd give it a shot(after watching pics from that thread that Pim mentioned). Seems should be fairly easy job, just need to mak...

Re: Asymmetric steering/suspension

That's a lot, I got mine for £29 recently and bushes are perfect. I'm not a fan of lower springs on a 40, these cars sits low enough anyway :)

£3000 :O

Any 'itemisation' on that? I assume they dropped the rear end and redo parking brake and replaced front too? I suppose that could explain the price :roll:

Re: Asymmetric steering/suspension

You can also fit the triangular MNC3713AA XJ8 strut instead of individual dog-bone struts/bushes. Improved handling and bolt on to XJ6 with no problem. I have one on my car. Pick up a low mileage one on ebay from a dismantled XJ8, they show up from time to time for about $40 - $50 or so. Larry I wa...

Re: Rust is our enemy and we shall defeat it

Original wiring is two coloured, so if you replaced them with a single colour wires that would mean either impossible diagnostic later or some translation table to keep :roll: Is there any rust anywhere? Seems a lot of am...
