Re: Daimler XJ40 4.0

[url][/url] Can they be reconditioned? Nope, just easier to fit a new one or have one in the boot. The Andy bracket is basically a replacement for the standard bracket that the CPS sits on, it alters the timing and apparently makes for a faster and more efficient car :D oops, crossover from another ...

Re: Daimler XJ40 4.0

Any thoughts? I could do with ordering it tomorrow if I can find a supplier. Genuine ones are expensive, pattern ones less so, better a working pattern one than a non working genuine one though. :lol: £190 for a genuine one at British Parts or £20 on ebay, big difference. There are a few types depe...

Indeed, whoever removed the frames just cut through the wires and left the bfm’s in place. Thankfully I managed to rescue them and reunite them with the cut off plugs :roll:

Re: Bulb failure modules cut and shut ??

Thanks for the offer Naki but the late bfm’s have had their bulb wires cut off and need to be reconnected so it would be an unfair swop. Fortunately I have now been offered a set of 5244 bfm’s which will do nicely 8-)

Bulb failure modules cut and shut ??

So, I have a set of late bfm’s to fit quads and an early set for fish tanks. I want to fit quads to the early car. Can I get the late ones to work on an early car by swopping the harness plugs ??

Re: XJ40 Matchbox Model Police Conversion

Been looking for another car to break for spares to finish this job off and managed to find this last week. Need the rear lights off it ( I ruined a set with paint stripper :roll: ) and will be cutting the tyres down to give a more realistic look. Looks like the sill ends have gone as well :lol: 70F...
