regarding overhaul of HS8, fitted to certain late S1, and early S2 XJ6
to remove the jet, I unscrewed the brass nut that connects the nylon fuel tube to the fuel bowl.
despite wrenching on it with pliers, the hose would not come out of the fuel bowl
does it need heat to soften it ?..is the new jet hose pushed over a nipple in the fuel bowl, or just jam in there with the brass nut?
any further force was going to result in the hose tearing
- When overhauling the HS8, is it standard to replace the Jet Bearing ?
I do not see it is readily available
I will be ordering some parts from SU Burlen
- I dont know what years HS8 were fitted to XJ, and whether they were on USA cars
In Australia, the transition from HD8 to HS8 seems to have taken place in '71
