So after looking over her and failing to fix the lights issue, and some long in-depth calls with Naki trying to get a list together of all parts, clips, and any other missing or malfunctioning bits I realised my best and most economical move was a spares car.
By some coincidence a car of the right year appeared on eBay for the second or third time and again some idiots just bid and then refused to pay, consequently it is now sitting outside my house not knowing the fate that has befallen it.
It is a Moroccan red with doeskin 4.0S.
Mot failure with structural rust issues but I don't care about that, it is internally complete and starts and stops. That's all I needed.
Now I'm not sure where these missing parts and broken clips etc are from, whether the car was already like that, if I took them off or if they have disappeared in the many years it has been away and in pieces but that's not the problem now, it's replacing it all to an original 40 spec that needs to be done.
So now it can be.
I have a blueprint for what it should look like and all the parts needed to correct it.
Which is a good thing because the next big issue is a leaking pressure delay valve CBC4233 on the brake system. Obviously NLA from Jag. Leaky brake systems scare me.
So my intention is to swap the master cylinder et al over from the S to the XJR.
Has anyone done a master cylinder swap or replace? Is there anything I should be worried about?
Because in my ignorance I will just unbolt it all from the parts car, clean it all up so it's nice and shiny and then replace it on the XJR, bleed the system and hopefully have a fully functioning brake system with no leaks. Sounds like a plan to me.
As an aside, I don't need any of the interior of this car so if anyone is interested in any bits, give me a shout.
There will probably be a lot more from it I don't need but will put the bits up here first before heading to the bay of E.
And just a quick spot, bizarrely all 4 wheels are immaculate so if anyone wants perfect shiny 4.0S wheels I will have a set for sale at some point
