Re: Compression horespower and engine numbers

Maybe it´s not the ...

Re: Ignition mark on Crankshaft Pulley and some more ?!

Hallo Sebastian , if You are looking from the right side of the car beneath the wheel, what is disturbing the view to the timing marker ,is not the alternator, but the airpump of the air-injectionsystem. The Butec-alternator is mounted between engine and radiator under the aircon compresor. It is a ...

Re: Is this Jag the real deal?

The engine looks clean and o.k. But as David told You, read first the book of Peter Crespin,...
