Re: Interesting Daimlers

At only 950 original Km on the clock, it has to be somewhat special even if it is a PIA 12 banger :lol:

Re: Rear shock replacement

You bought the wrong shocks, these fit the very late cars and the X300, not your car. Bilstein 24-018586 is not a ccc6923 equivalent, despite what some parts suppliers say. You need some Boge or Sachs equivalents like these with the retaining ring. https://www.berkshirejagcomponents.com/xj40-early-r...

Re: engine misfiring especially when cold

Check the big flexible intake hose from the elbow to the throttle body - it's really easy to get a kink in it when fitting the large hose clamps - and if that kink is underneath you'll miss it and have yourself a vacuum leak. Sounds possible that you do have (another) vacuum leak in the intake somew...

Re: engine misfiring especially when cold

You probably got the code when you disconnected the AFM and ran the engine or something like that.

Clear the code and see if it sets it again, just disconnect the neg terminal count to 20 and put it back on.

Re: Me XJ40.com and the future

Surely this forum is a better encyclopedia of XJ40 woes and solutions than social media could be? Absolutely. The archives of a forum outweigh social media by an enormous amount.
