Good morning all,
I’ve removed the drivetrain from my 1984 XJ6 in preparation for an engine swap. Although these components are no longer of any use to me, I would love to see them used in keeping other Jags on the road.
The backstory is that the previous owner of the car drove the car for a decade in the nice months before parking it a year or two ago due to presumed fuel or spark issues as the engine would crank but not fire. I did hear it crank and it spins over nicely.
What is the going rate for the engine, transmission, and various accessories (PS pump, alternator, starter, etc)?
Whatever a willing buyer is willing to give you is about as close as anybody is going to advise without knowing where you are. I’m in New Zealand so the price I would pay without hearing the engine run would probably be scrap value.
I figured as much for the engine, knowing that any buyer that’s serious about using it as a potential replacement would be skeptical (as would I). Obviously the engine and trans are uneconomical to ship - perhaps the smaller components would be of use to someone.
I am located in Western NY in the USA if that helps anyone.
Sorry Norbert, I have no use for any of the parts as I sold my S11 about a year ago, the post was more to prompt you to advise where in the world you are.
If you were closer, I!d offer you the $100 I paid for the same setup, that I used in my hot rod…
