Nope, just easier to fit a new one or have one in the boot.
The Andy bracket is basically a replacement for the standard bracket that the CPS sits on, it alters the timing and apparently makes for a faster and more efficient car :D

Genuine ones are expensive, pattern ones less so, better a working pattern one than a non working genuine one though. :lol:
£190 for a genuine one at British Parts or £20 on ebay, big difference. There are a few types depending on model year and engine, although I think the main difference is the shape of the connector plug so they could be cut and swopped over.

No worries - I was confused for a moment - I thought I could still get a new ABS pump motor!!

I'm sure it can be fixed but since yours an early car I'd ditch the hydraulic stuffs since its now failing and replace it with a bit more modern system from here:

1996, 3.2 SWB X300 - Finally a rust free daily driver :)
1997, 4.0 LWB X300 - Unlucky car.
1988, 3.6S XJS - Never ending restoration project.
1994, 3.2S X300 - Accident damaged, October 2015. Gone!
1994, 3.2S XJ40 - Long gone.

After having the new reservoir sorted there was a huge improvement but, initially when starting the car, I had to wait for a minute for the ABS and brake light to go out and then she was fine.
However, when driving around town and continuously braking, the warning light comes back on and the brakes loose efficiency.
In light of this, I’m going to get the pump changed as I’m guessing it’s leaking?
I’ve had a look on the Jaguar classic parts and it appears that the ABS pump under the reservoir is NLA but, it seems that there is a kit of washers and seals - will this resolve the problem?
If not, where can I get a new pump from?


Even if the ABS pump was available new, I dint think you would want to pay the price. Typically parts like this a £1000+ new, when available.

It’s only the 3.6/ 2.9 that has hydraulic boat Girling brakes.
Mikes is an early 4.0.
