Default 83' XJ6 cold start valve

Hi,

I've recently acquired a 1983 XJ6 in very very good condition with only 38k miles on it. I've replaced the fuel pump and filters and cleaned the tanks and fuel lines. I have good fuel flow to the injectors and the electrical system has been checked out. I've found that my cold start valve is hopelessly clogged.

Does anyone have a source for these that #1 has the part in stock and #2 doesn't cost over $300?

Any help and guidance would be appreciated.

Regards,

Perry

Did you consider using a non-Jaguar version?
