    Collection of Rovers spotted

    Hi All, Saw this interesting collection of Rovers while driving past a farm in South Gippsland, Victoria. The P6 is a series 1. Unfortunately, the road I was taking the photographs from is notoriously dangerous, so I was somewhat reluctant to try and get photos of the front of the vehicles.

    logging in

    Hi Butterfingers. I’m in country Victoria and never have an issue. I’m with Telstra. (For the non Aussies out there, Telstra make BT look very efficient!). I’m assuming that you log in using a standard PC. Have you tried logging in on a mobile device to compare? Regards, Paul.

    Compression test. Spark plugs in or out?

    Hi All, When doing compression tests in the past I have always removed all the spark plugs at the start and then tested each cylinder in turn. I mentioned this to a mate recently and he told me that you should only remove the spark plug from the cylinder that is being tested and leave the rest...

    Plug lead question

    Thanks Mike. They’re not too far from me. Out of curiosity, what diameter did you go for? Paul.

    Plug lead question

    Thanks Penguin. My retaining clips are long gone. That won’t be an issue for me. Will be on the shopping list with the new leads.

    Plug lead question

    Hi guys, Have a 1975 3500s. I’m looking at replacing the HT leads and am wondering if there is a noticeable difference between the 7mm and 8mm leads when fitted. Any pros/cons, limitations, personal experience gratefully received. Cheers, Paul.

    Oil pressure gauge question

    Thanks guys. The point of the post was to see if the gagues were identical with regards to measuring and displaying the oil pressure. If they were different I was going to install the one which showed the higher reading! :rolleyes:

    Oil pressure gauge question

    Hi all, I have a question about oil pressure gauges. I suspect that the dash in my 1975 3500s is not the original. (The clue is the hand writing on the back which reads “rover V8 - RHD Km/h” This is the oil pressure gauge I currently have. I have a spare dash courtesy of eBay which has this...

    Hi Derek, Thanks for the info. Hopefully it will remain in the memory bank! Paul.

    Faulty fuel gauge fixed!

    Thanks roverp480. That might explain why the boot light doesn’t work! Severed cable has been isolated with insulation tape until another day. Paul.

    Faulty fuel gauge fixed!

    Hi all, This weekend I decided to fix my faulty fuel gauge. Running out of petrol with 3 kids in the car was the painful incentive I needed. After checking the advice in previous posts I need to thank Vaultsman for his labelled PCB photos in this post: Fuel & Temperature Gauges - Series 2...

    P6 V8 coolant expansion bottle

    Hi Mike, I have the same conundrum on my 3500s. See my previous thread. Position of coolant expansion tank I haven’t managed to fit mine yet (too many other jobs keep popping up). I will probably go for the long bolt method described by Quattro. Regards, Paul.

    Unable to select gears

    Success!!! The acorn bush was the culprit. Although it looks ok I had nothing to compare it to. I bought a new one and then realised how poor the original one actually was when they were side by side. I still need to adjust the clutch pedal but I can now drive the car once more. Thanks once...

    3500s for sale in Victoria

    Peter, Unfortunately I have no shed:( I like to think that working on the car on the drive in the cold wet Victorian winter is character building, but I suspect not, especially when the rain is coming in sideways!

    3500s for sale in Victoria

    Hi Peter, Not sure if it actually sold as there is no bidding history with the item. I was ever so slightly tempted to go and have a look as it was only 45 mins from me but I already have enough to keep me busy with my current one. Paul.

    Hi harveyp6, Not sure what your last post means. Should I be worried? Paul.

    Unable to select gears

    Thanks for the info. I have read it previously and is very thorough. Thank you. It sounds more appealing than dropping the gearbox. Is it as tricky as it reads? Also, am I correct in assuming that the clutch lever should pivot further towards the back of the car with the clutch pedal fully...

    Unable to select gears

    Hi Harveyp6, Thanks for the reply. I’m not sure if my car was definitely fitted with part 90622363. I didn’t notice if the end of the gear lever was metal or plastic as it was covered in grease. I will remove it again and double check. The spherical seat on the gear lever appears ok but I will...

    Unable to select gears

    Aaarrrgghhhh! At some point over the weekend someone has replaced my gearstick with a broom handle and a bucket of marbles! The gear selection was never that great but now it’s almost impossible. Now very difficult to select any gear including reverse. Gear selection seems ok with the engine...
