That is more than you can say about most 80s American cars. I hardly ever see any G-Bodies or anything from the 80s except for the occasional k-car :lol:There's one I see in the vicinity of Texas Stadium all the time. It's gold and has the Erebuni kit (or pieces of it) installed. It's also got dinner-platter-like drugdealer wheels on it... overall, quite hideous. On the other hand, it *is* still running.
Really? I never thought they'd be able to handle that sort of force without any damage... I guess Jaguars known to be like tanks for a reason.Heh. The advantage of the US bumpers is that you can ram smaller cars with impunity, as well as getting rear ended by them. I got rear ended by a Camry a year or so back, and the Jag was totally undamaged. Dead Camry, though.
The US bumpers are giant 3/8" wall box-section aluminum beams suspended on ~2" hydraulic cylinders.
I'm fairly certain that to change a pinion seal, you have to take the pinion out, which would entail disassembling the diff.I've also considered converting my X300 to a manual. However, I've heard that the dual-mass flywheels are hard to come by. Don't know why, suppose I'd have to write one of the blokes at Jaguar World about that.
Changed the oil on my car today, and found the front pinion seal on the differential leaking. I topped up the diff while under there. Any idea how hard it is to drop the driveshaft and change that?
