Bought this XJ6 several years ago and put it under a cover waiting for time, money and enthusiasm for restoring it. Was a member here for my other XJ, a lump, and found the resources to be very valuable. I’ve met a fellow here in Tucson, AZ, USA that is in the final stages of cleaning his Series 1 up and thought I should give mine a try.
Has not been started since 1984 as far as I can tell, when I bought it I spit some Marvel oil in each cylinder through the spark plug hole and manually turned the engine over. Part of what has held me back on starting the project is the dread of dealing with the wing tanks. I am posting today looking for some advice to start with on how to best deal with the fuel tanks. It looks very difficult to remove, and a nightmare to re-install. Thankfully the entire car is completely rust free, unfortunately every rubber piece is rotten or missing from pack rats.
Thanks for any encouragement, it is a beautiful car.
