    Plug colour.

    Head version - casting no (under rocker cover) is best way. Here is a piece about heads from SD1 onwards. Rover V8 Cylinder Head Numbers - The V8 Owners Forum - If your head casting is NOT in this list, OR it has dual springs on the valves, it should be an original P6B head - cant find a casting...

    Plug colour.

    I would read the white as showing a lean mixture. How many miles on these plugs - doesnt look like much. The black part looks a bit like shadow of the electrode - not so? Have you done the SU piston lift test - lift a piston ~ 1/16" at idle, fully hot - revs rise and stay up, rich; revs drop...

    Fuel pump feed.

    No, will do. But if the coil measures 3 Ohm, and the specs for its part no say 3 Ohm, it has to be 12V doesnt it? Lucas DLB101. Starts easily hot or cold weather. Lucas 12 volt ignition coil DLB101

    Fuel pump feed.

    I am seeing 12v at the coil (3 ohm type), so I dont think I have a ballast in line.

    Fuel pump feed.

    I hear what Colin is saying.... As I read the diagram, the coil is fed off the input side of F19-20, while the washer pump is fed off the output side, as are the warning lights, tacho. FWIW I have my inertia switch mounted below and a bit rearward of the coil, so I think its OK. Is there an...

    Fuel pump feed.

    My pump doesnt run on accessory- my reading of circuit is that washer pump and coil are both powered from same point, so either on accessory sounds wrong.

    P6B S Project Car

    Shutting the drivers shin bin is difficult - not obvious whats causing it. Anybody have a pic of what the bulkhead should look like there please? Fixed - a little relocation of the speedo cable required.

    1968 2000 TC Restoration Project

    Are all the rings complete, no bits of a land missing? I have seen pistons very badly eroded on the crown due to pre-ignition caused by using low octane fuel. This damage looks like some foriegn matter got into that cylinder, to me. Bits of spark plug - electrode, or insulator?

    I tapped off the windscreen washer pump, works fine.

    P6B S Project Car

    While I was cleaning the prop shaft I noticed a part no on one end - 533535. Not in the 3500 parts book, but it is listed as the shaft for a 2000 sc/tc. It fits fine, so...should I worry ? It seems to be same dia as the 3500 auto shaft I have for the LT77 transplant, just longer. Probably should...

    P6B S Project Car

    The rear UJ bolts must be the tightest such bolts I have ever struck! Really had to swing hard on them. Shaft was badly surface rusted, some signs of scratching at the line of the hand brake cable boot - dont how that would have come into contact. Shaft all cleaned up, nice coat of black on it...

    P6B S Project Car

    looking around underneath....lets check the prop shaft UJ alignment. One arrow a little hard to find, but in the end...close to 180d out of alignment. Havent noticed any vibration, but so far have only done a few 100 kms. The gearbox has been out and opened by barbarians ( had some sort of EP in...

    P6 3500S- manual gearbox trouble

    Considering how shot peening of a gear shaft would be carried out, I find it hard to see how the shot might get into the box. Surely the gear shaft would be mounted inside a cabinet (like a sand blasting unit), shot peening done, shaft removed, cleaned, oiled and stored until it was assembled...

    Ouch! Did you find the base cause of the burnout?
