Having a spares car is ideal!

Good suggestion from Pim.
After that it should be more clear.

Hi Naki,

yes I am glad we kept this old car as spare, although the body is shot it will still provide useful parts... in theory :mrgreen:

Looking at how rare these cars have become these days I realised I should have kept my old cars instead of trading them off, it sounded like a good idea at the time. The one that I am regretting the most is my 3.6 XJS... will post a photo later

got to get another one before soon they become too pricey !

You can’t win either way. If you keep everything and never get rid of cars, you will drown under a sea of cars!

You can easily apply 12v directly to the starter motor solenoid trigger wire. The plug is located at the end of the fuel rail/ near the bulkhead.
Make sure the gear shifter is in Park.
