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.
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.
If you haven’t visited MyClassics.co.uk recently, now would be a good time to pay the site a visit.
For those who haven’t heard of MyClassics yet, it is a brand-new platform for buying and selling classic vehicles. With no fees at any stage of the buying or selling process, it’s a very budget-friendly online vehicle marketplace.
One of the cars currently being sold on the platform is a 1995 Jaguar XJS. This convertible classic car has a 4-litre petrol engine, a little over 40,000 miles on the clock and a leather interior that looks to be in fantastic condition.
For the last 24 years, the car has sat in a garage patiently waiting for a new owner, and now the time has come for that new owner to be found.
A very detailed description of the car including a comprehensive history can be read on the listing so, if you’re interested, don’t wait too long as it’s unlikely this classic car will be available for more than a few days.
Nick accepted delivery of his new classic this morning which was perfect timing as we hear his daily has broken down! Don’t worry Nick, your new XJS works as the perfect daily classic.
We wish you many happy miles and have fun!
Our Jaguar XJS has had its radiator bored out again to make it run more smoothly.
As part of its pre-delivery inspection, we’ve carried out a thorough service and our technician Paul is currently addressing the issues that have arisen from the service. There was a noise at the rear end caused by worn brake pads which were rubbing metal to metal on the brake disk. One brake was cracked as well. The steering rod arm was also showing signs of wear and the steering rack gage has been replaced. Paul has also replaced the front pads, rear disks and nearside front wheel bearing along with the other normal checks such as changing the oil and oil filter, repairing the switch for the roof and charging the battery.
Our 1989 Jaguar XJS that has recently been finished is currently undergoing a pre-delivery inspection during which we’ve discovered it needs new brakes.
We set out a week or so ago to shoot with Charlotte and our 1989 Jaguar XJS at Bentwaters. We were lucky that the rain stayed away and the sun came out to help brighten up our visuals.
This stunning classic is up for grabs over on our competition website.
Currently residing in Romford, this classic 1989 Jaguar XJS is soon to arrive at our workshop HQ. Keep your eyes peeled for updates surrounding this stunning Jag.
