    Just bought rover tc 2000 car did not start for 30 years what cane i do ? To get it started full original

    Welcome, looks great. To cobraboy's advice I would add the suggestion that you inject a light penetrating oil (in the old days RedeX, but it seems unobtainable) into the spark plug holes and let it sit for 24 hours before trying to turn the engine over. New points and cleaning the contacts...

    3500S on Bring a trailer

    Love the letter " It all began in 1970 when we purchased........Since then the car has been a source of irritation to us.....................etc plus list of faults. I can readily relate to that and wrote something similar to the Rover CEO in 1970.

    3500 wing badge paint finish

    Don't believe it was painted, just anodised aluminium. If it is shiny assume some-one has sanded it?

    On Ebay...

    Seems an honest description. Am gob smacked by the bid price, a car like that would struggle to make A$3000 here.

    Here's one for the experts.....inconsistent oil readings?

    Don't think this is as unusual as others have indicated. At times one face of the dipstick can indicate a different level than is found on the other face. Suspect it may be a function of how straight the dipstick is, or whether there is a kink in the tube, and how freely it runs when inserted...

    BW35 Rear mounting Metalastik Bush

    There is an Australian Ford Falcon mount which works with minimal modification. We used it about 5 years ago and whilst I don't remember the part number, at the time I did give details to David W the RCCA parts guru so could possibly get the info if all else fails.

    Door to door seals

    I got seals from Scott (leading edge of rear doors only) 5 years ago and ended up trimming a bit off, so suspect there is not much, if any, difference between his and what you have. But it may be worth asking him for the dimensions. Mind you I also had a bit worn through on the original at the...

    Electronic Distributor which is the best for reliability?

    Mine was mounted in a similar position to Thijs by the Melbourne agent in 1978. His comment at the time (and we started with one on a Datsun 240K) was that if the system was going to fail it would do so in the first 3 months. Hope I haven't put a moz on it! Certainly improved start-up and idle...

    This reverses the "Picture is worth a thousand words" adage. No picture could do justice to that sound!

    Thanks Rich, that is reassuring . Had assumed it was from here because of the unique password I have for this site.

    The purpose of posting was to alert others. I had no intention of doing anything other than deleting the email and alerting authorities, done before posting here. Ban's password recommendations are valid and I imagine followed by almost everyone. Take care

    SCAM Warning

    Hi Ban, reason I think it is from this site is that the password quoted was unique to this site. Clearly the site has my email address but I use a different password for my email.

    SCAM Warning

    I received a threatening e-mail referencing the password which I had used on this site, now changed. It suggested that my lurid online sexual activity of the past 154 days would be exposed if I did not deposit $2000 in bit coin to 15E1TKsav65ej*tyxFcGj5tVTFuCGYQ13JZ At my age it is probably...
