This series assumes you took the carbs apart, and are trying to figure out how to put them back together again. If you haven’t taken them apart yet, it’s a good idea to skim through this first anyway. Address any questions to: xj-owners@micapeak.com, and we’ll try to talk you through it.

Maximized X

The Maxim X tank is a little on the small side. So when I had to repair a big dent as part of a restoration project anyway, I thought I'd address the size too.

I didn't want to ruin the classic lines of the X tank, so after much debate, I decided to widen it a few inches, leaving the profile intact. The first step was to layout the planned cut with narrow masking tape. Normally used for things like pinstriping, it follows curves quite nicely.
