Re: Coronavirus

Sure, same here, just disadvantageous in current situation however you look at it ;)

Asians also already went through few epidemics like this so yeah, that's another reason it will take us way more time to deal with this.

Re: Coronavirus

I agree there should be MOT’s. There’s lots of people on the road that will not spend a single penny on their cars unless they have to. Tyres I think are the big one. the relatively high costs of new rubber at all four corners means that even they didn’t have to, some would drive until they were on...

Re: Blown head gasket on my XJ81

Just replace the head gasket, 40 is a very simple car, head gasket is relatively easy job on it, its just a lot of spannering. If the car was running fine before HG failure, then it will run fine again after you replace it. I've successfully replaced a blown HG on a 3.2l with an absolutely zero car ...

Re: Coronavirus

I don't agree here, I think people should still get their MOT done yearly, because I know too many people here who would be driving with bold tyres, no lights or shot brakes or windscreen wipers if there wasn't any MOT. I do think though that MOT should much simpler and quicker. Just the basic thing...

Re: Late-style XJ40/X300 suspension on early XJ40

Problem with early wishbones is, they don't have an eye for ARB in the wishbones so not sure how would you attach it. They are cast too, so I cant think of a way to safely and securely attach ARB to them.

Re: Late-style XJ40/X300 suspension on early XJ40

Was wondering this recently too and my thinking is that it will fit fine. You'll need a different wishbone tie too but they normally come with the wishbones as a pair, I think there is one on eBay right now for £100. Anti roll bar plus xj8 monostrut instead of individual diff struts is a huuuuge upg...

Re: Coronavirus

It's not great, I'm working from home from now, but plenty people loosing their jobs here, I'm not worried about the virus but if this drags until Autumn there will be carnage. Also, people don't seem to treat this seriously here, so many elderly around, shopping and out like absolutely nothing happ...
