So to check, with the engine just idling, I lift the bonnet and remove the oil filler cap. If the exhaust cam is awash with running oil (which it always is) there is nothing wrong with the lubrications system. I agree that if the engine is not making untoward noises the likelihood is that there is ...
The gauges themselves are not all that unreliable, but as already stated the senders are notorious for inaccuracy, and replacements tend to be even worse than the originals. SNGB do a kit which seems very popular for converting to a "wet" gauge and IIRC this looks just as an original would

Jeremy : I don't think they are more prone to damage although the alloy tubes are very thin. The problem, according to the radiator repairers that I have used ( and one of them had a scrap pile of alloy rads that would have done credit to a scrapyard ) is that there is no practical way of repairing ...

The xkebools very definitely mentions both the Interim Lists and the J37 and 38 which are specifically described as illustrated J.37 - SPARE PARTS CATALOGU...
I'm very interested , David, that you say the factory manual is not illustrated. I cannot speak for the S2, but my 4.2 S1 parts manual has illustrations covering every area of the car, as does my Mark 2 manual . Did they abandon this for 1969 ? And, curiously, the references in the xkebooks catalogu...
The appropriate Jaguar parts catalogue has all fastenings detailed in a code which seems a bit abstruse at first but which you soon get the hang of. The individual fasteners have numbers which contain a code to denote their type, thread and length. Thus purely by way of example the setscrews which h...
The first thing to check is the relevant fuses . Not all cars are wired exactly the same, so you will have to look in your drop down dash panel to see which fuses may have been affected, but usually the headlamp flasher unit is fuse 1 and the indicator switch is fed by a purple wire from fuse 8 . It...

Am I far out of date, or is there a slightly alarming case of being taken for a ride in the bill shown on Andrew's link : $280 US in total for labor ( sic) for diagnosing and replacing and bleeding a clutch slave cylinder ??? The cynic in me starts to work overtime when I see that the 3 elements of ...
The symptoms may be associated with the prop shaft and the rebalancing is certainly worthwhile. However, any imbalance in the rear wheels could also produce this sort of vibration . The two sources can sometimes be distinguished by the fact that wheel imbalance is usually purely speed sensitive, whe...
