Re: Me XJ40.com and the future

just click on the below and you can add pics Two reasons why I prefer embedding over uploading: - easy to post the same pic to the various forums I use (and - contrary to i.e. Facebook: full control over my pictures) - minimal impact on forum hosting capacity Embedding even a miniscule picture host...

Re: Me XJ40.com and the future

What Leo just said... ;)

Thanks too all involved for bringing picture functionality back to life, an essential element of this forum!

Good one, Larry!

Re: 92 Sov 3.2 - Starter Motor Replaced!

With the ignition set to ‘II’, ie last position before actually starting the engine, the fuel pump gets activated to pressurise the engine’s fuel supply pre-start. Ideally, ask an assistant to listen for the fuel pump whirr in the boot area. No whirr means either the pump itself has died, or its sup...

Re: Offside rear brake light and indicator bulb do not work.

No bulb failure warning light on the dash?
And have you tested the individual wires/connectors with a multimeter?

With symptoms isolated to a single light cluster I would suspect either damaged wires or a wonky bulb failure module.

Re: Me XJ40.com and the future

I have one, John. I know it sounds simple and is easy to write down from the safety of my keyboard, I also know it would be a serious endeavour: upgrading or migrating the forum platform software. The current platform seems to require tons of behind-the-scenes work to keep it going, and essential fe...
