Had an exhaust made by my local Powerflow people (Lincoln)
Took around five hours in all
Old silencer box
Probably just past it`s best!
Left Y pipe in place for now
Video (if it works!) at idle (750 ish rpm)
I have just spent 30 mins using the search facility but could not find the problem I have (if, indeed, it is a problem)
I have reset tickover down to around 800 rpm (from 1300!) - gearbox is much happier
Oil pressure when hot does not show on gauge but oil light does not come on
I have done...
Took her out for a 30 mile play in the sun
Fitted new steering wheel and tacho and clock are now working perfectly
Tickover needs work!
Fuel gauge reads the same no matter how much fuel is in the tank but drops to zero when ignition is switched off. Does this suggest a sender fault?
New tacho turned up to replace my non functioning unit:)
Its is an RVC, only fly in the ointment is that the one I am replacing is an RVI :(
Can it be fitted in place or is the signal different?
Do I just bite the bullet and fit electronic ignition and the RVC?
All assistance greatly...
Good evening all
The clock in my car does nothing
I have obtained a replacement clock for my S2 3500 dash
Can I test it with my trickle charger as a power source or does it run from the 10v voltage regulator?
I would like to test it if I can prior to fitting to eliminate the clock as a...
Looks like a condenser?
Car starts and runs OK but tacho does nothing at all
Wondered if this might be why?
If I remove the dash is there a test I can do to identify why the tacho doesn`t work
Duff unit versus not receiving a signal?
Pressure gauge, ammeter, temp etc. all work
Fitted a good used tunnel cover this morning to replace a broken one that came with the car
Couple of questions for the guru`s
How is the selector panel secured to the tunnel cover?
I think mine may have lugs broken off the back by the looks of it?
Second question, do both of the...
My 1972 P6B has an SD1 engine fitted I believe
The dipstick for the gearbox is on the right hand side of the engine looking from the drivers seat (offside, opposite to engine dipstick
Does this mean it is a BW65 gearbox?
Now that I have acquired a V8 P6 which is the best workshop manual to buy?
Haynes has always been first choice for a lot of my cars but there seems to be quite a few genuine Rover manuals available
If OEM is the way to go, which version given that my car is early `72
Any advice gratefully...
Currently looking for a decent V8 that needs some cosmetic work
I have contacted a guy in Troon who has a 3500 for sale, does anybody know anything of the car?
Price is reasonable if it has been described honestly
Any information gratefully received
Many thanks in anticipation
Good morning all
I purchased a fan belt and air filter for my P6 from an ebay seller
The air filter shown was shiny and new sitting on top of it`s box
The filter I received was a different make, grubby and wrapped inside a plastic bag which smelt of petrol when it was opened, the filter also...
My clock is running very slow
I took it out today to have a look and there does not appear to be an adjusting screw on the back of it
Is this correct or is there a plug on the back that has to be removed?

Question is V8 or Four pot?
I have located a solid 2200SC with a genuine owner but would I be happy with it knowing that there are V8`s out there?
If any 2200SC owners would like to share their thoughts on how they...
