It’s nice to get back to work. If I ate and drank any more, I’d explode.
This XJ12; I put in a new rubber, and spring rubber isolators, and I think I assembled it right, but now the rad fan touches at the bottom of the shroud, suggesting the trans mount is too high.
Or, maybe the engine mounts are sagging?
Then I wondered if I have the correct spring in the mount. I have a few shown, with paint marks in blue, white and purple. I’ve never seen a reference to these colours.
Does anyone know what the colours mean, or which the car should have?
Or does anyone have an idea to tilt the motor back a bit? Shim the motor mounts?
I was going to swap to the black fan while doing the belts, but don’t want to have it hit and be ruined.
