    Tab washer.

    Rover part number 2819 is missing from my car along with one of the 3/8 in bolts fixing the front mounting bracket to the base unit. The bracket holds the extension housing of the differential. This looks to be a rectangular washer that spreads the load over the bracket a bit. However it shows...

    Oil Filter Dissection.

    A suggestion came up in my youtube feed a month or so ago to view oil filters that have been cut open to inspect for quality. So I decided to purchase an oil filter cutter, since there are no videos on youtube covering filters that fit the Rover 2000 motor. The most commonly available filter...

    Improving Cooling 4 cylinder motor.

    I was inspired by Demetris to go a different route to improve the cooling on my Rover 2000 automatic. I was going to fit an electric fan, however I decided to install an 11 blade fan and a fan clutch instead. Then fan clutch I installed was for a Jaguar XJ-6, Hayden 2765. This has a flange with...

    Exhaust valves.

    Looking at my 1966 parts catalogue (2000 SC) it shows 2 part numbers for exhaust valves, one for 4 speed models and the other for automatics. Does anyone know what the difference is? I suspect that they started running the stellite valves first in the automatics, as they tend to run warmer, and...

    The last time I had my BW35 gearbox serviced I was told that I need to replace the gearbox mount, as the old one has broken down somewhat.

    Rover 2000 hoses.

    I was doing some filing today, and found some NAPA receipts for a complete set of coolant hoses for my Rover. Some of the hoses that they sold me did need cutting, and took them about 3 days to get. I decided to record the part numbers on my Rover spreadsheet. I have also visited the Gates...

So I need a fan which fits behind the radiator. I could with the extra hp not having that mechanical...
