Default XJ6 Series 2 Brakes

Hi Everyone

Sorry to be a gatecrasher Iím not really a Jag
guy but need some help and thought you guys might be able to help.

Ive purchased an XJ6 front clip with a plan to adapt it to fit my 40ís truck.

The guy I bought the clip from said it came from a series 2 but knows nothing more about it. The clip has brake discs/rotors but no callipers. My query is if buy some series 2 4 pots will they fit? Or is there a risk if itís an earlier series 2 that they wonít?

Thanks for your help.

I think there's a risk, yes.

I think the 'uprights'....the part that the calipers bolt to....are different and must match the caliper design.

There are probably some identifiers to help you determine if you have an 'early' or 'late' set-up. Hopefully someone with better info will chime in.

Cheers

All series 2 / 3 XJ and XJS front caliper were the same. Just go to RockAuto.com and pickup some calipers for a 1986 XJ6. You're gonna get hurt on the shipping and core charges though.

was about to say Iím in the UK so would Ng Iíd some here but bizarrely they are cheaper to get shipped from the US.

So looking at Rock Auto there are 4 or 1 piston options. From previous replies both will fit with same rotor/disc size and thickness?

Thanks

You should be looking at the 4-piston calipers. The single piston front calipers are for the later series of Jag sedans. I doubt that they'd fit at all. But, obviously, I've been wrong before

In 1986-1987 Jaguar was building two very different cars but both carrying "XJ6" badges...so parts cataloging gets confused. If you search for parts using 1985-earlier you won't run into this conflict.

Cheers
