At last the Federal XJ6C engine bay is done! We decided to keep the original look and feel of the engine bay instead of opting for earlier polished cam covers that wouldn’t have matched the rest of the bay.
Much clutter was removed by deleting both the EGR and air pump and their supporting brackets. The air conditioning was also re-routed straight to the firewall instead of around the entire bay to cool the fuel rail.
Long gone are the Strombergs in favor of twin SUs with a manual choke cable. The European version of these cars came with twin SUs and a starting carburetor that nested in between.
