Well, she finally arrived yesterday evening. And out I went this morning to go see her for the first time in proper light. There is certainly a nice sized list of things to sort out but it is manageable. With the MOT and insurance sorted, I just need to get some road tax on Monday and I should be hunky dorry.
Engine wise, I have a miss under 2000rpm. I've managed to track it down to cylinder 2 but I suspect it is the Bosch fuel injector as disconnecting it does not cause it to worsen much more. I am trying to source some replacements as they are not standard Jag types. After some research, it seems they were originally fitted to the E30 M3 Evos and 1982-1984 Volvo 760 Turbos. The part number I'm looking for 0280150355 but 0280150357 should be okay. The same flowrate and resistance but a slightly different spray pattern. I can find a new one in the UK but they are £125 a pop. Recon ones are available for $25 each I've only found the 357s. Just awaiting a reply from the suppliers on the 355s.
My airfilter is also dirty but there is a bit of confusion. It is a canister type filter but JDHT shows a panel filter. I thought maybe the one from my XJS would fit but it is too long. Then again, that is a 4.0 and the 3.6 filter may be different. If I cannot find a suitable one, I will just put a cone filter on for the time being and fit a catch tank to the breather.
The bonnet has come off today to receive some paint and will be back on tomorrow. Just black until the time comes to send the car to the bodyshop.
