Tested relays, they seem ok, swapped relays with known working one & still no joy. Wondering if itís possible to test pump direct from battery & if anyone has done it?
Yes, and yes...

Just need two 5m lengths of wire :y

Easier to just bridge to two contacts in the relay socket up front (the two wider pins on the relay are the contacts).

If fuel pump then runs, happy days. If it doesn't, check for 12V at the connector on top of the tank using a multimeter. If it's not there, it's the fuse or a wiring problem back to the tank. If it is, pump is FUBAR. :y

True, but assumes that the wiring is sound...

Cheers for all the help chaps, pump connection has power but no life in the pump, sitting down with a large drink before I ring the dealer. If anyone has delved into this area any tips would be much appreciated & book of lies only gives it 3 spannerís so canít be that hard can it?

New in-tank fuel pumps are readily available from about £30 upwards. You do have to fit it to the swirlpot, but that's not the difficult part - undoing the plastic nut that holds it to the tank without breaking anything can be tricky.

My 6cyl X300 would flood if shut down shortly after a cold start,but could be re-started by using the "decking" the accelerator pedal and turning it over on the starter,I believe all the XJ6s were the same.

I overcame this by fitting an isolation switch in the fuel line on my 4.2. :y
