    Battery Drain

    Having been away for a couple of weeks, I came home and went to start Occie, my Series 2 3500S, only to find the battery was completely dead. No voltage reading at all on the multimeter. Managed, to my surprise, to get it back to seemingly fully charged using the CTEK charger in Recondition...

    Wiring Electric Fuel Pump

    After one or two issues with the mechanical pump, I'm thinking of installing a Huco sucker pump in the engine bay. I've seen different opinions from people who've gone down this road about the need for a relay, or just a new 12V ignition-controlled feed to the pump via a fused inertia switch...

    Engine Removal - 3500S

    I've never had cause before to pull a P6B's engine, but the time has come. The WM, and the usual method no doubt, is to remove the engine and box together and split them on the floor. Is this the best way to go, or is it possible/advisable to leave the (LT77) box in situ? Any other tips...

    Which way to go.....

    Forumites may have seen in this section that Occie, my 3500S, is pretty poorly at the moment and won't be coming out to play for a while. Long story short, the main and big end shells are badly scored and she can't get oil pressure above 20psi. But worse is the fact that the two main crank...

    Oil Pump Woes

    Tooling along in the outside lane at 70....suddenly sounds like a bag of spanners rattling under the bonnet. Checked the oil pressure. Managed to get over to the hard shoulder without incident....recovery truck home. Took the distributor out to find the pump drive shaft seized...

    Dunlop Brake Cylinders & Pads

    Any Dunlop-braked P6's needing work on their front calipers? Those with longer memories on here may remember I was part-way into restoring an early 2000 before circumstances prevented its completion. As part of that I'd bought a pair of professionally-rebuilt calipers that were listed for the...

    V8 Mechanical Fuel Pump

    Hi all, Occie, my V8, has developed the habit of taking ages to start on the key when the car's been standing for a day or more. Once started, restarts are fine. I'm thinking it's likely to be a problem with the non-return valves in the mechanical fuel pump leaking down, but I can't just buy a...

    Speedo Flexible Drive Cable

    Hi all, Would anyone have an old inner flexible cable knocking about they don't need? The gearbox-end angle drive has failed on the Jag due to a stuck input shaft on the speedo head. The angle drive has a flexible cable stub that locates in the gearbox and this is now chewed up. I've got it...

    Another tick on the Bucket List!

    As a young chap in the mid-70s with ideas well above his station ( :) ), apart from the 3500S, I always fancied myself in a Mark II Jag. The Sweeney only served to reinforce this but, alas, marriage, offspring and the resulting parlous bank balance combined to ensure this remained just a...
