Case Study :: XJ6 runs rough

New Page to commence soon for Case Studies

Case Study 1:  Customers XJ6-4.2 EFI runs rough, almost like it had a burnt valve or failed injector,... the other suspect item is a failed thermostat letting the engine run too cold and resulting in an over fueled mis-fire.

Jagmania repaired the thermostat by milling all surfaces and fitting new parts.

Workmanship is to the highest standard an life warranty. 


Case of the Broken Tappet

Case Study No 2, XJ Soverign 4.2 engine cannot be tuned to even idle, also misses up and down the rev range, regardless of leaning or enricment of the EFI system, the engine has um,,pa,,pa um,, instead of a purr. The customer initially could not tell, except a trained ear brought it to his attention.

The cause (see pic opposite) broken tappet guide and no clearance on front cylinder exhaust tappet. A new tappet/guided milled & installed & clearance reset.

What an impressive company and knowledgeable and talented owner. The lack of support for performance improvements is the only drawback on owning a Jaguar.

Admin 09.03.2015 17.42

Hi John, sure, many MK11 Owners fit 4.2 engines, do want carbs or EFI, I will email you.

John Noonan 08.03.2015 21.06

I have a 1974 XJ6 Series2 and want to put in a Series 3 engine can you do this for me?

Steve 04.01.2015 08.30

Thanks, yes,.. its not like Chev bolt-on parts etc, but there is a pro bespoke parts industry for performance, problem is most mechanics are not engineers.

Radical man, unbelievable what you are building. More people should build private race cars and get more new blood into the sport. Keep up the good work.

Jaguar XKR & XJR V8 engine timing chain tensioers are dangerous, Can you give me an idea of cost please? Like to do it all,water pump etc. X308 3.2L 1998

Admin 28.10.2013 11.52

Answer: Top tensioners are main problem, rates run $1000-$1500. Depending on complications I have heard figures of $2.5K to $4K, send email for detail response.

Hi, I've been following your Club Race cars project, mainly how you rebuild a Jag V12 into a 3.5 litre race engine and what transaxle you use behind the V12 :-
