    Nice trip in autumn sun before the salters are out.

    Hi Mike, this is in the northwest part of the country, Møre og Romsdal. Between the towns Molde and Kristiansund. I drove to Nordkapp 3 years ago. Fascinating landscape up there.

    Nice trip in autumn sun before the salters are out.

    No worries since I run Evans fluid in the system. Anyway we have had just one night with frost so far this autumn. But thats a signal for the god damn salttrucks to start pouring out their corrosive stuff!

    Not cheap at half the price!

    That was a bit more reasonable!

    My '72 P6 V8 is back in use on UK roads and once again wearing its silver on black 'K' plates!

    Here is a picture of my routing. I have the electric pump underneath the tank and a copper pipe going forward and turn over to a rubber hose and have a filter just beside the LH carb.

    Lockdown Jobs

    Hi Sdibbers, On Booth my S2 P6’es there are two tubes in the front of the bonnet. That is one 3500 and one 3500s. On my 1965 2000 however, there are nothing at the front. So probably an addition that came with the S2 in 1971. regards, Barten

    Hot starting problems 3500

    Hi Colin, The pump is sitting in front of the engine about where the mech pumps have sat. IT has been there since 2002 and have not given me problems earlier. And when testing it provided a good flow of petrol to the carb inlet.

    Hot starting problems 3500

    Hi guys, I have an electric fuel pump in it. I also tested the fuel supply to the carbs, and it was a steady stream. So I am thinking it can be vapor lock within the carburetors ? She has got hs6 carbs, are they more prone to vapor lock than the never hif6 carbs? I shall start by checking the...

    Hot starting problems 3500

    My thrusty Rover 3500 1971 has developed a problem when hot. It can take more than 1/2 hour for her to ignite again after a stop. Very inconvenient at petrolstations and other places I choose to stop. I have checked she has spark and also petrol to the carbs. When she is cold she starts and run...

    I badly need bushes for the front suspension upper links, or a pair of good links with reusable bushes

    Hi mrtask, I have bought new bushes from Wadhams and they seem to be just like the originals. I have the m installed in my 3500s and they do not squeek so far at least. regards, Barten

    Bit more bumpy than I’d like.

    Maybe your bottom ball joints are shot? Or the top link bushings? You should be able to see if it is ok if you jack it up and use a big prybar. Regards, Barten

    Bit more bumpy than I’d like.

    Have you checked all the bushings and balljoints ? If all is ok the ride should be smooth is my experience. Regards, Barten

    Revealing my 27 year project : 72 3500 s

    My monza Rover has had its plates more than a year now. It is good to drive, but I am not happy with the engine. Its got a ticking sound probably coming from the hydraulic lifter or the adjustable rod. I drove 180 km yesterday on the national day, but the ticking is getting very annoying...

    What’s the biggest engine

    I had a Tesla Model S for 1 1/2 months back in 2013, Very quickly found out it was totally wrong for me. Did not like how it drove, did not like to sit inside a big computer, did not like the lack of V8 growl, sold it with 1300 km on the clock and got more for it than I paid.

    Power loss when idling.

    Hi Terry, I saw your question about the clock. If you take it out you will find an adjustment screw behind it. You can adjust it and then run it for a day to see how it worked, then adjust again etc. I did that to mine, and now it works quite accurate. regards, Barten

    Chin spoiler / front valance

    It looks like the Rover is skidding a lot more than its competitors. Stiff rubber?

    I have had my speedometer overhauled and calibrated for a 5 speed gearbox by Speedy Cables. It now read spot on and is very smooth. So I am happy even though they took their time to do it. About two months if I remember correctly.

    I am trying to rebuild the master brake cylinder on my 1968 Saab 96 V4. It is more tricky to do than the dual circuit master cylinder on the Rover 3500s.
