My MK2 started life as a 240 Auto , far as I know the axle is 4.27 .
Going by the satnav , at 60mph revs are 2.500 , at 70mph 2.700 .
Going by the manual a 3.77 Axle Ratio as fitted to 3.4/3.8 cars
60mph would be 2.300 and 70mph 2.670 revs
I was going to refurbish a 3.77 Axle and fit that , thinking the revs would come down more .
Gearbox is a all synchromesh , tyres are 215/70-15
I take it the rev counter is about right , it ticks over at around 700 smooth , it is a XJ6 3.4 engine with a generator bolted on the back of the cam , like the MK2
What are your thoughts ?
Would be nice to know other MK2’s , rev’s to mph , at 60 and 70 mph , going by a satnav not the speedo !
