To gain access to the leaking rocker cover gaskets, classic car technician Scott had to remove various parts of our 1988 Jaguar XJS Convertible.
Once he had access to them, he was able to remove the old gaskets and replace them with new ones.
After fitting new rocker cover gaskets, Scott began work on putting everything back together again. As he had removed the inlet manifolds, injectors, pipework, wires, and more, he had to reassemble everything before he could double-check his work.
Once Scott started the engine of our classic Jaguar, he looked for any leaks or other issues and was satisfied that the initial leaks had been resolved.
Our 1988 Jaguar XJS Convertible hasn’t been with us for very long but it has already been the focus of our classic car technicians. We are looking forward to seeing it back with its owner and out on the road very soon.
It may have only been in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop for a short while but classic car technician Scott has already been busy getting his assessment and inspection of our 1988 Jaguar XJS Convertible underway.
Scott noticed an oil leak during his checks so he spent some time looking for the source of the leak. He also gave the car a thorough looking at to look for any areas of corrosion. Any areas found have been reported and will be resolved while the XJS Convertible is in the workshop.
The diff and gearbox oil were also checked. Scott replaced the diff oil before replacing the broken grease nipple on the drive shaft.
Scott then went on to remove and clean the coolant level sensor before continuing his checks on the rest of the car.
Our 1988 Jaguar XJS Convertible will continue undergoing its checks and assessment as well as having any issues found resolved by our team of classic car technicians. Classic Jaguars like this are always enjoyable to have in the workshop so we will certainly make the most of having this one with us.
Arriving earlier this week, our beautiful 1988 Jaguar XJS Convertible is in with us for a general check over underneath but more importantly it’s service is due.
The car has been undersealed so the owner is interested to see the integrity of the sealant and whether any additional work is required.
The car will also undergo a full service with an overhaul of the brake fluid too.
