    Prop Shaft Orientation.

    If the two connecting end flanges are not parallel the yokes have to be offset to keep the two running at more or less a constant velocity . When the 90/110 land Rovers were introduced the front prop has the yokes out of phase because the front diff is angled upwards. Mechanics used to working...

    P6 Sales aid propelling pencil (SOLD)

    For Sale. may be of interest to a collector of P6 Memorabilia Old Propelling pencil that I understand was available as a Sales Aid to Rover dealer during the Launch of the P6 Rover 2000. It has a window that slides open when the pencil is tipped up revealing a message on a square , stating in...

    Rover P4 front wing splash panel

    I believe not, its a real rust trap with a turned flange and a stud plate . Mine had been plastered with Underseal from new but was still corroded although repairable

    Electric fan: any recommendations?

    Having being bought up on stick and oxyacetylene welding I couldn't for the life of me get on with MIG, until I went on an evening Welding course at the local agricultural college. I cannot say I am brilliant as I don't get enough practise for one thing, but it all fell into place with proper...

    Front Shock Absorbers Lower Mount

    If you drill a small hole right through the centre of the split pin , 3 mm, it will most likely relieve the tension allowing the rest to then driven out with a punch. Given the part number of the Pin, its most likely an imperial size , not metric.

    Well put, it explains the ported system , that I didn't understand.

    charging and mixture/choke warning lights.

    As the wires are faded , the one way to determine which is which will be to refer to the wiring diagram and see where each wire originates and with a meter set to resistance check which gives a continuity reading. The following is taken from the P3 wiring diagram and you need to check that...

    Ex Land Rover 2200TC engine

    Agree with the above . Production wise the 4 cyl LR engine was not fitted in a P6. Experimental was a different matter I am sure all sorts of combinations were tried.

    Here's one for the experts.....inconsistent oil readings?

    As already stated there is one way to be sure, drain all the oil and refill with the correct amount and see where it sits on the dipstick

    Distributor Vacuum Signal

    As far as I recollect the original UK spec SU set up with a Lucas distributer has vacuum created in the manifold but the take off is near the butterfly so is also influenced by the butterfly position relative to the vacuum take off port., At idle there is little or no advance and at full...

    charging and mixture/choke warning lights.

    You could do away with the resistor and fit a 12 v LED bulb, MES E10, assuming it fits http://www.norbsa02.freeuk.com/goffyleds.htm

    charging and mixture/choke warning lights.

    The original bulbs are 2.5 volt MES , like an old torch bulb. The resistance is to lower the voltage . You need to drop about 10 volts carrying about 0.8 amps so circa 12.5 ohm resistance (If my calculation is correct!)
