    Service Schedule?

    Hi folks, to save me some time and research does anyone have a Service Schedule/Checklist I can take as a draft? I've got an AK Gen 2 with Jag Xj40 donor parts and a RV8/LT77. Many thanks Mike

    This RV8 service checklist may be a reasonable start point...

    That's a fairly good service schedule for my SR with Rv8 engine
    and early xj running gear .
    I'm sure that will cover many other makes .

    They state mileage but no time duration. I follow Haynes No478 manual service internals for Jaguar for early XJ6/12 XJS.

    My service internals are all on duration.

    Engine oil and filter - 12 months regardless mileage
    Brake Fluid- 2 years
    Antifreeze - 2 years
    Gear box B&W T5 - 4 years
    Diff for XJ - As Jag 3 Years
    Clutch fluid - 2 years

    Hi ,

    Our recommended service intervals for the RV8 engine :-

    Engine oil ....................................change every 3000 miles
    Engine oil filter ..............................replace every 3,000 miles
    LT77 gearbox oil ............................check level every 3000 miles , change oil 24,000 miles
    Edelbrock air filter element..............change every 12,000 miles or sooner if in dusty conditions
    sparkplugs ....................................clean every 6,000 miles replace every 12,000 miles
    Points (if fitted) .............................clean & adjust every 3,000 miles , replace every 12,000
    Antifreeze .....................................replace every 3 years (ethylene glycol type IAT , do not use OAT antifreeze)

    For front suspension and rear axle service intervals , check with relevant manufacturers manual . (Ford or Jaguar)

    Regards
    Jim

    I should get on and change the oil in my old xj6 open diff.
    No horrible noises at present, these things sometimes get
    overlooked although only 10k miles on oil .
    It's a bit different for L S D type I know.

    Not a nice job changing the diff oil and the smell of it never seems to leave you once you even with gloves on!
    I use an extended pip and feed it in.
    I have done it from the inspection hatch behind the seats which is handy for inboard early XJ brakes as well.

    I once had a slight accident with a puddle of gearbox oil (driveshaft fell out of my old Renault 5 ) - the jumper I was wearing never did recover! I mean, I kept wearing it in the garage, but it smelt something akin to cat vom.

    Come to think of it, there was also the time I ended up sat under a fountain of gearbox oil when I erroneously opened the fill plug to make the gearbox drain faster .. drain faster it did! Sadly it then missed the bucket completely, hit the side of the inspection pit and went all over me
