Question about 1998 Jaguar XJ8L
Can someone provide me with details on how to replace the timing chain,guides and tensioners for a 2001 jaguar xj8.I can't locate the timing marks and the camshaft sprockets don't have keyways to hold them in one place.
I think Jaguar World Monthly magazine did an XJ8 maintainence book which covered this, it should be available direct or off that well known auction site.

Hello Steven...this is not really a home job,you need special tools for locking the engine and camshafts,also re-timing the chains isnt the easiest of jobs with out the correct equipment
