    Piston Ring query

    Replacing the rings on my 2000. The top pic shows the originals which butted together (I think) and were held in place by the convuluted ring in the groove. The second pic shows the AE NOS replacements. No convuluted ring and I'm assuming they somehow are supposed to interlock together but I've...

    2000 Conrod STD bearings required.

    Anyone got a set of std conrod (big end) bearings for a 2000 they want to sell. My local engineer has refused to regrind my crank to match the +010 set I had on the shelf cos is so close to original tolerances it would be criminal to regrind it! :):) I think the original part number is RTC1715S...

    Seeking any information on Almond 3500S LGU 482P

    A very long shot but...... My brothers old car an Almond 3500S. Sold in 1981 to (I think) someone living in East Anglia. The last DVLA entry shows the tax expiring in 1982. So the new owner, it seems, stopped using what was then only a 7 year old car when the tax (which my brother probably sold...

    Flywheel, Shyster & Flywheel

    Parts Catalogue lists pre and post 1970-ish flywheel/ring-gear listings. I assume this reflects inertia and pre engaged starter motor fitting. Geoff @Winns lists a ring gear but I'm guessing it's a later pre engaged type (as it says it fits 2200 as well as 2000) when I need it on an inertia...

    Factory Rebuilt Engine

    Came across this whilst sorting out the shed today. Guess that's why the block has no engine number. Anyone know the significance of the numbers? Does it relate to a build year ?

    P6 National 10th August - Potential Travel problems

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-26660470 Looks like South London/Surrey will be closed on 10th August. When they had this for the Olympics it caused chaos, A25 closes so everything uses M25 and unless you leave very, very early you'll probably hit it. Be warned! Nick, Godalming will...

    Rare Rover Blueprint

    I picked this up at Coughton Court on Sunday. I didn't realise just how important it was as I was initially taken with his pristine red cover SC parts catalogue and almost viewed this as a freebie of no significance. However when I looked more closely I realised it was a genuine factory...

    Continental 175/80R14 Tyres

    I’m struggling to find a decent 165/80R14 tyre at a reasonable price (I need to buy 5no) but Kwik Fit are doing a Continental Eco 3 (rated a ‘best-buy’ by Which Magazine) in a 175/80R14 for £60.60 fully fitted each.

    Look at the tow bar!

    Never seen a tow bar like this before, looks as if it sticks out a mile....or is it my aging eyesight. Also looks like it might have been bolted through the floor.......all that V8 power being taken by the floor don't look good. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VERY-NICE-197 ... 1c25bab377
