I wanted to give you an update on my Mk2 project, which has finally taken up some speed now. I am in the process of I building what could have been. In my case, it’s a Mk2 with an IRS from an S-type. I am also putting in an 4.0L AJ6 engine in together with the ZF 4HP24 gearbox.
I hesitate to call it a lump in this particular case, that’s why I am posting it in the saloons section.
I have to give credit to the late Jyri Järvenkylä; my Mk2 project has been heavily inspired by his Mk1 AJ6-project. And a big thank you to Andrew Waugh who has been helping out with measures and documentation on the S-type which has been the donor of the IRS.
But I did not like the modifications to the Mk2 body required to fit the XJ40 (modified) IRS subframe. While the mods necessary for the S-type-IRS are still quite extensive, they rather result in replacement of existing body structures with stronger parts.
Trial fit of S-type IRS
I will keep you posted
