Chapter 14: Sale

Well, the post from "Roy" above is a somewhat prescient, as Jamie and I have decided to put the XJ up for sale. You'll see it listed on Bring a Trailer sometime soon.

Thank you to the forum group...

Chapter 13: Odds and ends

This has been a fun little project, and while there is no such thing as "done" we have just about completed what we set out to do.

It's nice to be up and running again after our brake master cylinder and water pump rebuilds. Such a delightful car to drive, these XJs!

Well, it's nearly time to wind down this thread. We'll do...

Oh, that's a shame. All that lipstick and glitter, starved for attention. On behalf of my Canadian breathen, I'm sorry.

Chapter 11: Water pump continued

Last post we indicated that there was a discrepancy between the size of the bypass hose adapter on our new water pump vs. our old water pump. A cursory investigation led us to believe that the...

It's more of a hassle to pull the water pump than we wish it were. But then, it's not a Lotus Elan at least. And yes, it would all have been easier had we pulled the bonnet again, but we didn't.

We sent it off to the good people at Apple Hydraulics in New York. Super easy to deal with, no issue with the "stepped" cylinder type, and sleeving in brass which we prefer for this situation. And a...

We've got a few hundred very enjoyable miles on our XJ6 now and, no surprise, some leaks are surfacing. First, while it really doesn't leak much oil ('zero' is not a realistic goal...), it has...

Chapter 9 continued: the headrests

Such a simple little thing, headrests, yet bad ones really bring down an interior. So many Jags (and MGs and Triumphs, etc.) running around with deflated headrests! Admittedly, I'm guilty too, the...

Chapter 9: Continuing the interior cleanup

While deciding what to do with the sun visors, we started in on the rest of the interior. It doesn't really need much, just general cleanup and then fixing the headrests, front seat backs, dash trays...

Happy 2018, Everyone!

While we waited for the headliner, we cleaned up the rear window opening. In doing so, we again broke our rule about not painting anything! After removing all of the old sealant and cleaning the...
