[xj] parts

Dear List-

Looks like this is a successful replacement piece on the series III 6
cyl. EFI cars - The vaccuum regulator that lives under the intake
manifold marked carb, dist, delay, was used on '79-'80 6-cyl Cheys. I
always wondered as the Jag part says made in USA. The NAPA part # CRB
2990 is an exact replacement except for having the Jag # on it. The cost
is $ 35.17 US. This is appx. half what I’ve seen for the Jag piece. The
time the NAPA guy took to go through his catalogues to match this up was
appreciated as the Jag # meant nothing to his computer. FWIW a past
discovery owing to this hose not even being shown in many of the Jag
suppliers catalogues is Gates # 18814 which is the hose from the back of
the auxiliary air valve to the underside of the intake manifold. The
hose has to be cut a bit but the molded bends come very close to the
pattern of the original. Hope this helps.

Happy Trails,

Paul Spitzer, AZ

Paul,
I have an '82 and an '83 (US) and this doesn’t sound familiar. What year
do you have? JW

Hi James-

An '83. This part is stamped with EAC-4399, Jaguar Parts Catalogue
identifies by same # as does Welsh on page 22 of their catalogue.
There have been posts on the list over time that some simply replace the
item with a “T” with apparently no ill effect. I believe the part’s
purpose is to more accurately control vaccuum advance as the two vaccuum
sources for this regulator are one before the throttle and one after. A
short hose and “T” off the underside of the manifold splits vaccuum
between the port marked “delay” on this regulator and the vac source for
the climate control. The other regulator port is marked carb and goes to
the port pointing backwards immediately before the throttle plate. The
regulator’s remaining port then in turn is the source for distributor
vaccuum advance.

– Hi listers, I am going to look at an 82/83 XJ-6 parts car. I have an
85 XJ-6. I am interested in the complete engine and the complete
rear,wheel to wheel. The parts car does not have the computor in the
dash. Does this mean that it does not have an electric speedo and that
the trans is not the same. Do the older cars use B&W 65 rather than B&W
66?
Thanks in advance
Best
John
Shoul the other main items fit?

Hello listers,
I am interested in purchasing the following parts. A early XK type cam cover
from the left side, oil fill side, of the motor and eather a XK crankshaft
or a V-12 crankshaft. These items are to be used for an artistic display so
they need to look good but do not need to be perfect. For instance the crank
could be bentand the cover can need a lot of polishing!! I am sure that you
will understand!
Thanks in advance! Please reply of list at JAT1127@ hotmail.com

I have recently learned that I need a need voltmeter gauge
and have been looking on-line for one but all I have found
is racing or digital gauges. I have not found an original
or original looking one. My question is, have I missed some
fantastic website. or should I start looking for a junk yard–
