In 1989 Jaguar may have been using same bolt pattern as Chevrolet and some other GM types. Check bolt pattern 1st, then chech offset. Jags tend to be high positive offset. I have a 2004 XJ8 VDP and the wheel bolt pattern is that of a Ford Taurus. Guess what kind of wheels I'm shopping for.

How to find diffrent unit standerds relating to boilermaking

The basic principle is that it would use the customary or legal standard units for the particular country.

For instance in the US, although the metric system is legal, the American imperial (modified British) system is still used. Hence boilermaking specs and drawings would usually be in inches, feet, US ounces and pounds etc.

In Australia it has all gone metric long since, and units are in metres, mm, grams and kilograms etc. Boilermaking as a trade is nearly dead, but would be metric.

In the UK all packaging and food sales must be in metric units, but otherwise metrication is self-regulating and more or less voluntary. Because of the vast amount of equipment and tooling which has still imperial units inherent in it, much manufacturing there still uses imperial units. Boilermakers could see either system.

My Buick has a button on the dash that says ENG / MET This changes everything from Imperial to Metric. Even the speedometer so you have to be careful In Ontario our speed is metric 100 is actually 60 miles per hour but if you push this button to imperial you have to adjust your speed to 60 Our signs are all metric.

How do I change from Km to Miles on the odometer for a Rav 4 (2006)?

Disconnect the battery for 90 seconds, then unplugged the cluster.. Then connect the battery with no cluster.. HVAC display changed to metric...

Re-connected the cluster again, display changes to imperial...

The cluster is what dictates what is displayed. It is metric by-default but a US imperial instrument cluster overrides that.

What is the refrigerant use in xj6 jaguar 1995

If it has screw on fittings then r12. If the fittings are quick disconnect type then it takes r134a. I would do a r134a system conversion if needed because of the availability and price of the r134a refrigerant.
