Re: Coronavirus

The vehicle still needs to be roadworthy though. Considering most people who drive cars in this country don’t check their own oil level or tyre pressures, it will be interesting to se how those people can asses the roadworthyness of their vehicles? If there’s no warning lights, it’s all ok, right? :...

Re: 93-94MY Sunroof motor

There’s what looks like an adjustment screw on top. But I tried turning it. It won’t shift, and the metal starts deforming. Despite being corrosion free.

93-94MY Sunroof motor

I noticed a while ago the sunroof motors on the 93-94MY have have any issue. They are as usual, different to the earlier versions, which incidentally never seem to fail? Another case of not all the parts changes for late models are an improvement. More likely a cost cutting exercise. I tested 4 of t...

Re: V12 RPM

I have a problem (at least I think so) when firing at cold speed it is 1500-1600 rpm. After warming up, the turnover drops to 750-800. In addition, everything is going very well, maybe sometimes the spin indicator gently moves. Any ideas what I could check? All wires seem tight. I checked them out....

Re: XJ40 2.88 diff wanted

Hi there, I'm looking for a 2.88 diff in the later XJ40 style. I've scoured the net and they were available in early '88 3.6 cars, and on US models with the non-jurid flanges. Not exactly common though! David Manners lists some that have sold, and there are parts numbers about: JLM1775/28E, JLM1775...

Re: XJ40 2.88 diff wanted

Hmm. I have never seen a 2.88 on any XJ40.
3.54, 3.58, 3.77, 4.09.

I will have a look at those part numbers....

Re: V12 RPM

Spin indicator? What’s that then? Perhaps lost in translation?

Re: V12 RPM

That’s a feature, not a fault!
Be happy your Extra Air Valve is actually working.
They can fail meaning your idle gets stuck high
