xj12 will not start

Recommended Posts

Afternoon everyone,

New to the forum after buying my xj12. 

I picked her up as a non runner and a barn find. She's in fabulous condition and the engine turns over freeley but wont fire.
I guess after 7 years the fuel is stale. What is the easiest way to drain the tanks on the XJ12's and also how do i clear out whats in the injectors?

Any helps is much appreciated. Just hope that the fuel is the only issue

Welcome to the Club, James.

 

I am thinking like you about the fuel but also a possibility that there is a clog up along the fuel lines.

 

I don't get my hands oily any more but there are some XJ owners who know about these things.

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.
