    Cylinder head removal

    So, here is the result and why the car hasn't been driven for six years. A dropped valve seat of the 2nd cylinder exhaust valve. There is a small impact mark on the piston; does it matter? Can I leave it as it is? There are clear impact marks from the shim on the valve spring "washer". I...

    Cylinder head removal

    Sorry, one more question. The manual says ’Remove cover plate from rear of camshaft bearing block.’ I can’t see any other cover plate than this one. Is it really necessary to remove it? I can’t see why!?

    Okay, then I’m definately 180 degrees wrong.

    Cylinder head removal

    One last question. I just noticed that it not the EP mark I aligned, but FP (?). I thought it was EP, but the manual says no 2 valve from front shall be fully open, but mine is fully closed. So I suppose I have to turn the engine. I have removed the tensioner. Can I turn the flywheel without...

    Cylinder head removal

    Shall I remove the two bolts and take out the complete tensioner, or shall I leave it where it is? With the word "pegged", I suppose you mean aligning the L-shaped locking key to the camshaft hub? So glad i have a Rover P6 and found this forum, there is always helpful experts when needed =)

    Cylinder head removal

    Thanks for your info. My Renold tensioner does not seem having the allen key insert. So I assume the circlip will be the only security. Do I have to loosen the two bolts and take the tensioner out? The repair manual says ’Remove the plug and copper washer from the chain tensioner’. The text...

    Cylinder head removal

    In 2015 my 2200 TC most probably dropped a valve seat (see thread Possible valve spring failure? | Classic Rover Forum). Since then the car has been sitting in my garage. I really miss the car and has now scheduled two days to remove the cylinder head, then sending it for repair. First time for...

    Manifold for 2200 TC

    Anyone know where I can find a manifold (1st exhaust pipe, from engine) to a 2200 TC? A new one at a reasonable price, or a used one in good condition? Mine have cracks; have tried to weld them but they come back again.

    Which car for this British Jaeger oil pressure gauge?

    Does anyone know what car brand and model for this old British Jaeger oil pressure gauge? It's small, only 2 inch wide.

    Possible valve spring failure?

    Colin, yes that's what it looks to me as well. Harvey, I understand it's difficult to see in such poor quality pictures. The pictures are upside down. In the upper left picture you can see one third of the open valve in the upper left corner, and a bit of the closed valve in the bottom right...

    Possible valve spring failure?

    With a cheap borescope I've seen the inside of the combustion chamber and the valves. What can you say from the pictures below, despite the poor image quality? I don't really know how much the valves are supposed to open, but doesn't it look like it has opened a little too much?

    Possible valve spring failure?

    Okay. Thanks for your replies. It will be a job for the coming winter time.

    Possible valve spring failure?

    My 2200 TC suddenly made a loud ticking noise from the upper parts of the engine, but otherwise seemed to be running okay. After lifting the valve cover I think the inner (or outer) spring for one of the valves is broken. It's difficult to see if any are broken, but it is my assumption since the...

    Need of brake servo overhaul?

    Aha, so they were left unpainted. Mine were mostly unpainted but I thought it was due to that the color had loosened over the years. Ideally, I want the original appearance as much as possible, but a few deviations have been made already. I painted them black before your answers came, so now...
