Default 1998 Jaguar XK8 help

Hello all! Iím new to owning a jaguar and I am currently restoring a 1998 Jaguar xk8 convertible and need some help. Does anyone know where to download diagrams and schematics such as belt orientation and firing order? I have found the 123 page wiring diagram but I am struggling finding other items. Thanks so much in advance!

the very top of the XK8/XKR section are some useful Stickies - the DIY will be most helpful and I have provided the direct link below. If you scroll down the page - look for Workshop manual and download the 1st Edition PDF. It has everything you need

The Vehicle Specifications Booklet has info for you. I uploaded it years ago. Gus will have it on his site also.

Default Information Source

On eBay you can get a CD of the workshop manual. It will have all the information you need. I am not sure if the engine in 98 was the AJ26 or the AJ27. If your engine is the AJ27 you will want the manual that is dated 1999.

You can download the factory Workshop Manual (JTIS - Jaguar Technical Information System) from the links in this thread:

Either the full install for all models 1995-2004 or only the XK8/XKR section.

Also the Workshop Manual in PDF format from this thread:

Scroll down towards the end of the the thread for the links.
