    Future of the forum

    Hi all, As some of you know I've had health issues for the past year which mean I couldnt drive or maintain the rover anymore, and the car has now been bought and will be going this week. I had Cauda equina syndrome, which meant I had to have a disectomy and decompression surgery to alleviate...

    Sleipnir/PAE (OR Rovey to Phoebe!) - SOLD

    I’m putting up for sale my much-loved Rover P6 3500. I’ve had several issues with my back and an operation and I think it’s come to the time when I know I can’t maintain or look after it anymore. I’ve loved owning and driving one of the oldest production V8 cars. I’ve learned to weld to keep it...

    Engine time :)

    Finally making a start on building a less noisy/tappy/clattery engine for Sleipnir. The engine came from Stan - a kind donation :) I've just been cleaning off all the muck. The next stage will be to remove the cam and crank/pistons. Is there any sort of retention for take the cam out...

    Doing silly things for money...

    Hi Everyone, It's been a couple of years since I did anything silly to raise money for a good cause. I'm two years older, and not as fit as I was back then, but on october 14th I'm running The Royal Parks Half Marathon in london to raise money for 'Ambitious about Autism'. Those of you that...

    Rover p4 and p5 sections

    Hi all, I've noticed we have a few rover p4 owners joining recently and i'm wondering whether we should create p4/5/3/SD1 sections? I know there are other forums for most of these cars, but if the people are here should we cater? All opinions welcome :) Thanks, Rich

    Anybody interested in any of this lot?

    There are a couple of starters - maybe good for exchange, the relay for the charging circuit, 1 exhaust manifold, an inlet manifold, bonnet insulation holders....

    LT77, pedals and a bellhousing

    I'm not sure if the bellhousing is the correct one (it was sold as being so but looks big to me!) - tell me how to tell the difference and i'll let you know. Box was sold to me as good, but i cant tell you 100% as i obviously have never run it. I'm going to stick with the BW 35... £150...

    3.9

    Hi all. I've been offered a decent 3.9 at a good price. Just wondering if besides swapping all the ancillaries sump timing cover and swapping the needles there is any other engineering required to fit it? If not I'm very tempted to pay the money.... Thanks Rich

    snatching in and out of gear

    A couple of weeks ago i was forced by a flat battery on the saab to take sleipnir on a 200 mile jaunt at very short notice - so where normally before a long journey i'd have checked levels etc, i didnt have chance. On the journey there it seemed to have issues when going over 70 - i though...

    Sleipnir's very early original engine

    Hi guys, I've finally started dismantling the original engine from the car from the point of view of getting it in tip top condition before the 50th anniversary celebration of the v8 in August. I'm concerned that there seems to be some rust in the bores. Obviously I need to remove the...

    Engine Stand

    Hi All, I've recently procured an engine stand to begin stripping down Sleipnir's original engine. I'm guessing it's usual to attach it to the bolts where the bell housing would go. Does anybody know what sort of studding/bolts i need to procure in order to hold it in the air securely? THanks...

    squealing under electrical load

    Hi everyone. Sleipnir has taken to squealing at low revs with the lights/heaters on. Two places i can think that would cause that are alternator or water pump bearings. Any clue as to how to check which it is besides listening carefully as it's pretty difficult to discern? Have i missed any...
