Just treated myself to a 1975 XJ6-C. After buying a XKR (2000) convertible last year i stumbled across this car.

It came about with the V12's. They found the heat soak from that engine was literally cooking the batteries so they fitted a fan to the battery box. It is simply controlled by a thermal switch within the box itself.

Found a battery box. Only, the thermal switch is broken. It cannot be repaired. Is there an alternative for that switch or a part number zo i can find one. Better, does anyone have a spare avaiable?

Brilliant site. Thanks. This one i can modify to fit the battery box. Far from original but who cares. Only have to find out the cut in temperature.

Lovely car Ron. I had one in the late 80's and I am pining for another these days. Mine was a 78 in squadron blue with the rare power sunroof option.
Love my 2012 XKR rag top, so not enough room for another car.

I found an original thermal switch at an autojumble from a fellow enthusiat who was parting out his parts. Modern batteries don't fit the box but i found a supplier with the right battery to fit the box and has the Amp i need (70Amp). The battery is 260 x 173 x 220mm. So slightly higher. I have to insulate the terminals to prevent them to touch the bonnet. Getting there. Slowly but certain.
