    Bonnet compatibility

    Thanks Harvey, My car is a series 2 ( 1972 ) . It is in the Paint shop at the moment and we have found filler in the front of Bonnet. There is a series one bonnet on EBay at the moment if it was better than mine it might have been an option,but if they are not interchangeable the idea stopped...

    Change of Tyre size ?

    What an interesting discussion . Taking all the comments into consideration I have made my mind up and I am going to go for the Pirelli Cinturato standard size 165/80/14 . Why is it the 185 is so much cheaper ? Supply and demand I suppose. Thank you for all your inputs.

    P6 2000tc bolts for carb adaptor plate to inlet manifoldD

    I believe they are only standard bolts so can be sourced from numerous outlets. Take one of the others out as a sample. Maybe best to replace with stainless .

    Change of Tyre size ?

    Hi , I have been offered a set of Pirelli Cinturatos 185 / 70 / 14 for a good price. My question is as my car is a 72 2000 TC with standard wheels and is now shod with 175 / 80 / 14 would these be suitable or would I need to source a set of V8 wheels. Thank you in advance .

    Will6440 . Glad you had a good result . I have had 4 cars done at Novatech and have had a good result every time. I would recommend to all members . There are a lot of rolling roads but very few understand Carburettors .

    Gaz shocks fitting problem.

    Richard , The ones I took off were 10 inches centre to centre.The reason for that was they were the wrong shocks and the suspension was not working correctly .Because the valving was wrong it caused the suspension to seize . This initially led me to think I had the wrong new shocks .

    Gaz shocks fitting problem.

    I have just fitted a pair of front GAZ adjustables and they fitted like a glove . Gaz are aware of the unique valving , they have sold 50 pairs this year with not one problem. Maybe that is why the majority of P6 specialists only sell GAZ. ? A previous owner had fitted non Rover standard shocks...

    The measurement between the hole centres when they are fully closed is 12 inches. I wonder if anybody has a set on the shelf they could check for me ?

    Gaz shocks fitting problem.

    Help . I have just purchased a set of Gaz adjustable shockers for my P6 2000 1972 . I have checked I have the correct part number but they appear to be 2 inches too long. I have tried jacking up the suspension by placing a wooden block under the disc but all that does is raise the whole car ...

    Rolling road and carb setup

    Rest assured, timing is an essential part of an engine set up and of course will be checked. Are your tappets all correct because if the valves are not opening and closing properly engine can’t be fine tuned. Some cars are more critical than others.

    Rolling road and carb setup

    Will6440 I know Novatech in Slough and can vouch for them . They do a brilliant job but don’t tie them too much on time . If everything goes well two hours will be fine but if an unforeseen problem happens it can take a little longer

    windscreen seals

    Vern , I take your point and fully agree there are many variants , but when you are asked what vehicle it is for and where is the coil lead is , by a Rover P6 Specialist and it is still wrong what hope is there .

    windscreen seals

    Hi Dennis , I am also a new member with my first P6 . In the short time I have been buying spares I have been appalled at the quality of replacement parts . My last purchase was for a simple set of ignition leads from a P6 specialist. They did not fit !!. The cap end terminals were straight...
