    Not sure that will allow differential switching of the fans through the thermo switches as there is a live connection between both fans.

    Think you need a douple pole, normally open, relay to the...

    What a sad story and from the stories I hear they've not improved much since.

    Nice job. Good to have a dedicated body lift!

    I don’t think I’ll ever get the hang of this site and photos but that second image you’ve copied over is what I’m looking at for the larger, later stub axles.

    the 24mm dimension is where...

    Yeah, it will be interesting to know what sort of tolerance Jaguar had on their hubs. I’m assuming that the inner bearing location must be quite tightly controlled to the disc mount face as this...

    Absolutely, it's not going to be a make and fit type of job. I will have to make the spacer length oversize to enable measuring of end float, once I know what that end float is I can reduce the...

    That more or less works out the same as I have although I think your bearing bores are a little undersize, I think they should be 35 & 22mm for innner and outer respectively.
    How did you measure the...

    I feel exactly the same. How can you feel good about a "victory" when you've been behind all race and even on brand new tyres you can't make much of a dent in the gap to the leader? I also don't...

    Not sure if there is some confusion here, apologies if I caused it. This is all related to the front (stub) axle.
    Having the inner bearing an interference fit or Loctited on to the stub axle won't...

    I'd appreciate that measurement. It is the diameter behind the stub axle I'm interested in, on my XJS items it is 49.3Ø

    On the item I've been working with (XJS) the inner bearing is a tranision ...

    Sounds like your mate had a similar education to me regarding taper roller bearings, I think I'll set mine up to minimal but will keep some clearance for now at least. Unless someone who knows ...

    I have a set set of these boots but they are lace so a bit slow to change, this is why I’m m looking for a pair with Velcro fasteners, this didn’t see some a while back but never got around to...

    Hi John
    Yes, I remember that post well, this is what got me thinking of these spacers. Didn't like the idea at first but the more I thought about it the more it grew on me. Not sure I'd be paying...

    I've modified the drawing above to try an suit the larger stub axle and also to make into 2 parts to allow easier adjustment. Hope the picture comes out!

    Thanks for the reply.
    I wouldn't say that Myles, it seems the later XJ6 and all the XJS's apart from the first year had the same/simlar size bearings, early XJ6's (looks like pre 1977) had different...

    You really do a fantastic job, is that the only garage you have? If so it's incredible how you do what you do with limited space resource.
