Take a good look at the steering column. There should be a large ring around it that your turn clockwise to tighten to lock the wheel to whatever length you want it at. Unscrew it to adjust it in or out

Yes it is normal on Jags. The steering column is adjustable on them from the factory. This was the system for the 80's
