    Oops I did it again. I've entered the Rover in an Autotest.

    I looked up V8 Tune and bumped into this - https://www.lloydspecialistdevelopments.co.uk/products-upgrades/rover-v8-engine-tuning/ Haven't seen them mentioned before. Yeah good luck, hope the weather holds out for you, -5 here and snow on the way!

    How do I get to the clutch master cylinder lower fixing nut ?

    I found that a Bahco mini-socket set does the trick. Bit fiddly but it works. Insert from the right, and lean in from the front of the car. Take your dipstick out.

    Hence my confusion... "There were a variety of different gear levers available during the production life of the car - short, medium and long gear levers for Series 1, Series 2 and post-1973 cars respectively (give or take). All are interchangeable, although the material of the ‘acorn’ at the...

    2200TC Project

    Been a while, finally managed to get the shaft eye bush and spherical seat bush done. I haven't taken it out, but gear selection feels better, but it's still a bit rattly. According to the p6 Club article, I have an early gear-stick with the metal acorn, "Early cars had a metal acorn that...

    New camshaft/lifters going in.
