    Hello from Newcastle NSW Australia

    Hi Tom, Great to hear of another 4 Cylinder P6 here in Newy. I'm local. Have rebuilt my car mechanically and am currently doing the body. Happy to help.

    Road noise at front

    Just wondering if we had a winner between the Perelli and the Vredesteins 165R14 for the four cyl cars. I'm currently running a bigger set of 14" tyres (185s I think) but am planning on going back to standard after painting the car. Both brands are very expensive down here in Aust. so price...

    Wheel alignment shim thickness

    Your calcs are a fairly good starting point. I've added 4mm of shim to the inboard top mount and my camber has gone from -1.4 to -0.45. Caster is - 0.35 and -0.45 degrees so I think I'll stop chasing perfection for now

    Engine mounts (4-cyl)

    Thanks Vern. So I assume I'l need to take the RH mount bolt holes out to 1/2" ?

    Wheel alignment shim thickness

    Mine was scrubbing in the same manner on thr LHS only. By putting 1/8" shim behind the inboard top mount it looks like I've moved the pilar outboard approximately 5 mm. I did start with -1.4 degrees camber so (as per above) I can afford to make an outwards ajustment. Going back for an...

    Engine mounts (4-cyl)

    Looking at doing this Mod on my SC in the future. Do the VW mounts have an M10 female thread in them. If I recall the original Rover ones use a 3/8 dia bolt with a nut done up from underneath.

    Wheel alignment shim thickness

    DId not check the caster value this time around as it was within spec the first time I had the check done. Probably is sometihng I should check now I've started playing around

    Wheel alignment shim thickness

    Recently had the wheel alignment checked on my 68 SC after noticing the drivers side steering arm boot rubbing on the inner guard. Could potentially also see the negative camber when sitting on flat ground. Check confirmed 1.4 degrees of negative camber ve 0.2 on the passenger's side. I...

    Series 1 Bonnet V8 vs 4 Cylinder

    Thanks all. For context, I;m cuurently stripping a 4 cyl S1 bonnet to paint and use on my SC Auto. Have no plans to do so but I was wondering if I ever wanted to use it on a V8 project in the future. Good ones are getting hard to find here in Aust

    Series 1 Bonnet V8 vs 4 Cylinder

    Just wondering if the only difference between the Series 1 bonnets (V8 and 4 Cylinder) are the cross bracing stiffeners (4 Cylinder) and the strip across the front. Can one off a 4 cylinder be modified to fit a V8?

    Advice on rust P6 3500

    The base unit on my 68 Series 1 is very clean. There are a few sections of the rubber retaining track where dirt has gotten down and caused a bit of a problem but nothing to serious. I'd say from the photos that car might have the same. I'm in the process of fixing mine but you could probably...

    really early rear quarter

    yep, look to be exactly the same square flat steel plate as the door hinge mounts. Bolts would have to mount from inside the boot and under the car near the rear bumper.

    really early rear quarter

    Got a bit of a surprise today when I went to trial fit the rear light assembly. I know the quarter was from a very early car because of the loverly wedgewood blue paint and the threaded blocks (like the door hinge mounts) on the rear instead of the stud with bent over tabs but I did not...

    P6 Rear Quarter sound deadening material replacement

    That's the stuff. I was concerned we could only get the modern hi tech silver stuff. Happy to use that inside the car but was worried about its durability inside the quarter panel.
