    FUEL PUMP

    I use 95 octan fuel. Don't know if it would make a difference with 99....I will try. Why some cars work ok and why in same configuration don't.....

    FUEL PUMP

    Despite the fact I have totally rebuilt my fuel pump, the problem I had before still persists. The car runs perfectly until I stop it for about 10 to 15 minutes. When I want to restart the engine (still hot) it does not run correctly for 5 to 10 minutes (see my post 21 August).... I have to...

    FUEL PUMP

    I have received and fitted my fuel pressure regulator in line, just after the fuel pump and before the filter and have tried the car about 10 kms. The carbs don't overflow now. I will try again for a longer distance, but it seems to be ok. By the way, does anybody know if it makes a big...

    FUEL PUMP

    I previously had a lot of trouble with my fuel tank that was full of "muck". The fuel was so bad that the valves stiked into their guides. I could not clean the tank correctly so I gave it to some people for repair and they cut it in 2, sandblasted it and rewelded. So now, the fuel tank is...

    FUEL PUMP

    Yes the needles and seats are new (vitton WZX1101A) and the floats are perfectly adjusted (about 1mm below the level of carb). I have dismantled the carbs again and rechecked both carbs. I am now waiting for a fuel pressure regulator. I also don't understand what happens. I have another Rover...

    FUEL PUMP

    I don't think that there is a problem with floats, they are both new, but it may be a problem with the return pipe. I have tried to push compressed air (nothing happened when I blew in the pipe) and with only little fuel in the tank I could hardly hear some air bubbles in the tank. When I...

    FUEL PUMP

    First of all, thanks to everybody for your helpful comments. Last week, it was very hot in Switzerland and my P6 stopped before arriving to the top of a mountain. The fuel couldn't arrive to the carburettors. Many times before that day , when I stopped the car for about 15 minutes, it was...

    FUEL PUMP

    I have just rebuilt the fuel pump on my 3500 P6 Automatic, and it works well but the pressure is very high (new valves as well) and the carbs overflow quickly. The return pipe is not blocked and join the reserve fuel pipe in the gauge. The pressure in the return pipe is higher than the...

    Gearbox BW65/BW35

    Thank you everybody. I know what I have to do now.. I also added about 1 litre of same oil in my second Rover P6 that has been stored for 30 years. The gearbox works very well now (I only made 30 kilometers...) but I know what I have to do now. I will drain the box and put some ATF...

    Gearbox BW65/BW35

    Would it be possible that the cause of the problem comes from a wrong type of oil ? I used ATF Universal, Dexron III, Ford MERCON oil....

    I have to buy some repair kits first. I don't know if it is easy or not.

    Gearbox BW65/BW35

    Thank you Harvey for your quick reply. I know it is a retrograde step and maybe not a very good idea to do this. What do you mean by "Servo problem" ? Can I see something or check sth if I remove the sump ? Many thanks again for your help ! jb
