Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

I brought a Jag back to life that had been sitting in a barn for 15 years. Aside from the things you mentioned I did run into a few other things:

a. the fuel injectors were sticking badly and the engine would not run. Tapping them lightly with small hammer got them going again. Some fuel injector cleaner in the first tank of gas is a good idea.

b. I had issues with stuck calipers as well. This is fairly easy to notice as the rotors should have a nice coat of rust on them by now. After driving it for a bit (and giving the brakes a good workout...try a panic stop or two) inspect the front and back of each rotor to see if it's all shiny.

c. wasp nests in strange places

Good luck! It's always a good feeling to get one back on the road from a long sleep.
