Re: Selling my XJR 4.0A if anyone is interested?

“Andy bracket” timing bracket fitted. Did the Andy bracket make much difference ? Have thought about it for my XJR but a bit nervous about something that advances the ignition that much, especially on a car that gets a lot of use. Its perfectly fine, I've been daily driving with Andy bracket for ye...

Re: Dead in Battle

CPS is tiny, you can keep it even in the door pocket and it can be replaced using 10mm spanner from the 40 toolkit. I always thought that's easier than waiting for hours to be recovered :roll: Its similar scenario to a flat car tyre. Would you change it on the side of the road or call recovery? I su...

Re: Dead in Battle

So you're saying you still drive a 40 without a spare CPS in the boot at all times? :o :shock:
Sounds like an 8 hours winter wait for a rescue in the middle of nowhere with no mobile reception might cure this behaviour :lol:

Re: Selling my XJR 4.0A if anyone is interested?

See what the red one currently on eBay goes for, it looks mint too so you'll get an idea what yours might be worth there too.

Re: James, 94 Sovereign Auto

Should have said, lower wishbone bushes as they are much harder to replace with the car complete, with the rack and on the ground than the upper ones which can be done later with the springs and shocks and whatnot :) Drive train bits obviously depending on any knocks and thuds when changing gears or...

Re: James, 94 Sovereign Auto

I'd go with subframe rear big bushes, vee mounts, engine mounts, rack spacers, wishbone bushes and while there probably prop shaft u joints, centre bearing and possibly jurid coupling. These are all the things which are much easier to do while the car is on a ramp and with frame/engine out and once ...

Re: 1996 Daimler Six X300, need some help

Coolant temp sensor COULD cause rough running/stalling. With the car's history of multi-year hibernation, do you know whether it got a new fuel filter when it was put back on the road? If not: change the filter, it's a cheap part and a fairly easy job... That's not an XJS Pim! :lol: Fuel filter on ...

Re: 1996 Daimler Six X300, need some help

Sounds like a bad fuel pressure. When you try to restart it next time, try to turn key into position 2, then wait few seconds, then back off and repeat and only then start. That should build up fuel pressure and hopefully it starts straight away. Other reasons - air leak somewhere, bad MAF, dodgy in...
