Well Sir, Replaced the fuel pump. Found wire inside tank burned pump seemed ok. Replaced pump with new one ( AirTex brand) and now getting above 60psi before it was 35-40 with old pump, and now a leak at the tank fitting going in. Should I put old pump back in when I try and repair leak? Pulled tank with lines attached and not sure if these fitting have a "o ring" or what and if just maybe this high pressure is part to blame for this leak ? .

Too much pressure, yes. Should be 42 psi. I don't know this car at all, so I'm in the dark here. There IS a sealing ring for the evaporative loss flange at the tank.
#44 of 47 Need a XJ40 repair service manual download free

I need a free download manual, for a 1990 Sovereign. Scope of service work requires exact info and pics, tired of slow dancing. I know there's a Haynes or Chilton out there, I got it and deleted it cause it was a lot on my computer.

There is no question but that the early 90's Jags had lots of fuel supply, and consequent starting problems. I have been there (with a 92, XJ6). But, there is one possible fix that has worked for me a couple of times, when I thought I had a fuel starvation problem, and the engine would not hit a lick. Try re-setting the Computer. Disconnect the + battery side for 10 min. or so. Turn on the switch, then reconnect. Leave the switch on and disconnect the battery again. Turn off the switch. Re-connect and see it she won't crank up.
You may be getting fuel to the fuel manifold, but not past the injectors, if the computer is off-base (or shot).
#47 of 47 Fuel Leak
Feb 26, 2013 (10:49 am)
I have an 84 XJS HE that has a fuel leak on the pressure side just after coming out of the pump on the wheel well side. A rubber hose is situated between the differential saddle and the frame. Does any one know how to replace this hose without having to remove the saddle?
