Hi there,

I am new to the forum, my name is Peter Henauw, live in Belgium, Laarne.
I allready have an xj40 witch I love.
But i've always liked the XJ6 series 1 & 2.
So I am in contact with a person who wants to sell his
1978 series II XJ6. Original it had the 3.4 liter engine but he's not sure it still has
the engine in it. He thinks it has a 2.8 XK engine at the moment...
(I will add attachement/pictures so you guys can see the engine and car)
I really would like to find out how i can determine what the engine is.
Is there a number somewhere on the engine? what should the number be...
I have been searching the internet but can not seem to find a lot...
Also if the engine is an XK2.8 liter engine i read somewhere the valve covers should not be painted...

Can you guys help me?
I'm meeting the owner tonight to see the car and maybe buying it.

Greetings Peter Henauw
