Oh hello! Look who's running again!

Found the fuel pump relay blown, probably because it also covers the lambda, and I was buggering about with the wires the other day. I also disconnected the battery to reset the ECU and voila! Functionality restored.

 

So, now £300 drive it away!

Will you please stop teasing me with this thing?
The only reason I didn't buy it before was that it was in Scotland.
You brought it much closer but still far away.

How far away from an MOT is it realistically? As in just scrape through, smoke it about until it grenades and throw it away sort of style?

The big worry is the ABS, but the exhaust is leaking, the washers don't work, the fog lights don't work and I reckon another section of fuel line has started to seep. Oh, and it still needs a lambda sensor. In other words, it isn't going to breeze it. It is firmly a project. Or a breaker. Probably a grand in it in bits.

 

Also, picnic tables.

I should add that those in the south of England may be able to benefit from free travel. In an XK150. Offer stands Sunday/Monday (I'm probably going to break up the trip home, Monday will see me return the XK150 to Bridgnorth, from whence the service will become a Tin Snail special).

I would love to give it a home but I am still welding up my Transit on the road outside my house.
My neighbours may just flip if I bring another tinworm infected relic of the days of yore back.

Best bet is send me beer if you really struggle with it, I buy anything when I'm drunk.

I may well be open to cheeky offers on this, as it needs to go before the MOT expires on 7th June.

New owner does live in Glasgow, but Chester is when the fuel pump relay will blow again.

I bought it, I drove it home, I got angry with it, it got taken away. Sold for £300, so could be worse.

An enjoyable collection caper, but not a good car. In fact, about what you'd expect for a £350 XJ40 these days...

Indeed! A major selling point I reckon. It'll be getting broken for spares and I'm forced to concede, that's probably wise. I'm saddened that it didn't work out, but it certainly has me interested in XJ40s as a whole. So interested I bought a Bluebird...

Not inconsiderable numbers of E38 punters, not happy at having to pay £500 upwards for proper E38 picnic tables, are buying XJ40 ones and "No More Nails".
