A long overdue update for sure!
Ditto on the crank sensor. Enter crank sensor into the search box on here, and there’s loads of posts on it. Nearly one every week. It’s that much of a common fail.

I have a spare here if you want one. PM me for details. Or I think you have my number too?

Well, the clock has run down. I'm moving house within the next couple of months so this has to go sadly. I'll upload some fresh pictures and details this evening when I get back from work. Will be advertised on this forum only for the time being.

That’s the sensible thing to do, in your circumstance.
I suspect having a 750bhp RS6, will make any XJ40 feel rather sluggish, let alone a none runner?

1989 XJR 3.6 with manual gearbox. Car is complete
The car was still running when I took it off the road in 2016, after 2 years as my secondary daily.

Image Image Image Image

Mechanically
I know rear pads need changing, this was why I initially took it off the road to do some other work before re MOting
Changed the hydraulic pump to fix low brake pressure.
Replaced water pump, after which car would not start (end of 2016)
There is no spark. Fuel is okay (I had a wideband O2 sensor fitted previously). Compression is also good on all cylinders.
Turbo's are good
Last I jumped into the car, the clutch pedal dropped to the floor, so the clutch hydraulics likely need attention

Bodywork
Rear boot lid rusty (replacement included)
Rear panel rusty (replacement section included)
Minor rust spots around the vehicle
Interior carpets and headlining rubbish

Extras
All the spares I have to go with the car:
Car is on BMW rims but Jag set will also be included (not jaguarsport)
New clutch cover (you will need to source a clutch plate)
Bootlid
Boot Carpet Set
Rear panel
Freshly powdercoated intake pipe and valve cover
Jaguarsport leather steering wheel
Random assortment of small bits

Just stumbled on the previous owners ad here: https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C469354

Obviously car will need trailering away. Ideally, I'd like to see someone put this car back on the road but really just need it gone over the coming months before I move house.

Seeing as I've not seen one of these, or the engine parts come up for sale in recent years, it's difficult for me to value it. Considering the powerplant is mechanically sound, the manual gearbox and spares - let's say closest offer to £1500. But please, would really recommend viewing to make your own conclusion.

Well, it's gone. Fortunately to someone who already has a XJR-4.0. I'm so happy that it's going to go back on the road rather than parted out. Hopefully the gent will post up some updates over the next year.

Good result i reckon.
They all need an enthusiast to take up the challenge.

Not sure if Ashley is on here, but his intentions are to get her running and MOT'd with as little effort as possible, then start looking at the many other jobs. As mentioned, he's already got a lovely XJR which he's put considerable time and effort into, so I'm sure this one will follow the same path ;-)
