On Friday April 11 Bob Hiland and Mike O’Brien worked on brakes and an overall check. They removed athe XJ6 steering rack after it was determined that it needed to have the tie rods shortened by 1.5 inches each. Bob then checked and tightened all the front and rear nuts and inserted split pins. Mike repaired a rear axle retaining nut and installed several rotors and calipers with Bob’s help.
