    If one looks under the title of "Sale of P6B in Members Projects - page 2.

    I have placed the sale of my car in the above section, wrongly. If anyone can tell me how to transfer into the Selling section, I would be most obliged.

    Sale of P6B

    Rover P6B 3500 v8 auto 1974 All who know me or of me will know that I have spent the last 10 years restoring and bringing my P6 back into a roadworthy condition. This I have now done. Now is maybe the time to part with it. I believe it is now in A1 condition with a full service history since...

    BW 35 or 65??

    Well, drove the car to the venue at Tangmere Military Aerodrome for SERR ( South East Rover Rally) Yesterday all 16 miles (each way)! She started no trouble & no "bang". Ran sweetly both ways. A fellow P6 owner suggested the bang might have been caused by low oil in the carburettor "pot"!! When...

    BW 35 or 65??

    Started the car today and as I did so there was a loud bang!! Frightened the life out of me, but after that it ran sweetly and continued up to temp. I wonder if the bang was anything to do with the breather system? Also, after I had driven the car into my garage, I noticed 2 small drops of oil...

    Thank you for your kind words Harveyp6, and your so correct " I would love to be able to work on my car, instead, I have to pass it over to my classic car mechanic to do the work"! With all the costs etc that go with it.....

    Harveyp6, I'm sorry, I didn't say all that I said just to play on your emotions. I thought I would mention it just in case you thought I was just saying that. Unfortunately, it's all true. I have debilitating pain in my back & knee that has been with me for some time. I walk with a stick. Paul

    BW 35 or 65??

    Many thanks for all the information. Unfortunately, I am partly disabled with a spinal operation that wasn't a great success and a right knee replacement that also was not a success. All this coupled with my age ( I'm 73) makes getting under or bending over a bit of a problem! So thank you...

    BW 35 or 65??

    Hi, my car has PAS. I would have thought that the sump ( engine) bolts may already be too tight, and may have squeezed the cork gasket up?

    BW 35 or 65??

    Just to let you know, took my car for it's annual MOT last Tuesday 5/6/18. Result: Passed! As usual. And no mention of reversing lights! So all's well! However, upon looking at the underside of the car (Tester allowed me to do that), I noticed a lot of oil on & around the sump as well as off...

    BW 35 or 65??

    Hi, just to let you know what the problem was with my car. The culprit was a seized front off-side calliper and the Brake master cylinder was at fault! Have now a new master cylinder and new front brake callipers, f/ o/& n/side plus new S/Steel brake lines/hoses. Now at least I can stop! As...

    BW 35 or 65??

    Thank you HarveyP6 for your prompt reply. The dipstick is on the passenger side, so is a BW65. I had a feeling it was, but nice to have it confirmed. Re reversing lights, you state AFAIK for cars from 2010 onwards. How certain are you HarveyP6? As I were told by a friend that it applied to all...

    BW 35 or 65??

    If my memory serves me well then this message is more up HarveysP6's avenue. My car is a 1974 P6B 3500 v8 auto, and I can't remember whether the gearbox is a BW 35 or the later type 65? The reason i'm asking is twofold. 1) I require a "Reversing Light Switch" as mine is duff. and 2) I need to...
