    Where's Dave Herns?

    Alive and well but decided to give this forum a break. I seemed to have annoyed enough people on various topics such as smoking , parking and my dog pooing on the pavement that I felt this was no longer a friendly place to be. May well be my own fault so those that want to criticize me need not...

    Thinking of getting a Rover 75......

    The Rover 600 range seems to be both forgotten and under-rated . The one my friend had was mid-range but a really nice car .Probably not many left now

    My 3500s project - future daily drive

    Exactly the same reason I gave for upgrading from an 18ACR elsewehere on this site Any reason for using a 4cyl Land Rover alternator ? I wonder if the engine runs better because the voltage is higher at tickover?

    Project ARJ...Part 2

    It's best to have relays on the headlamps anyhow as the fuse box seems to be a weak link and can melt/burn whatever headlamps you use Halogens are a massive improvement over sealed beams

    Glowing Ignition Light

    Is it silly comment season ? If your alternator doesn't charge at tickover , it means that when you stop at junctions ,traffic lights etc, the battery is discharging . Not good if you've got your lights , HRW etc in use. If I was using mine daily I'd upgrade to a modern high output alternator

    Obstructing dropped kerbs

    Thanks chaps I suspect some people don't know what parking in London areas is like . When I was working I was covering areas near Heathrow where you'd be lucky to find a space to park . I never deliberately blocked anyone's drive . I always made sure they have room to get in / out as was the...

    Dutch Rover V8 "4600" - (former 2200TC topic)

    Did you have brakes before you decided to bleed them ? Have you loosened off a nipple ? It does sound like a seal in the master cylinder has gone

Seems he went indoors and phoned the...

    Oil Pump Removal and Upgrade Kit

    What timing chain you fit depends on the depth of your pockets amongst other things ! I'm tight and when I did mine I used the basic stuff I think that oil seal has been fitted back to front - the "open" side with spring visible should be facing into the engine

    Ignition timing and distributor position

    The timing could be correct at tickover but not at higher revs if the advance weights etc were siezed or broken
