    Sticky clutch pedal

    If it isn’t one thing, it’s another...having sorted the brakes, the clutch is now sulking. I can press it down well enough, and change gear, but the pedal is reluctant to return and generally stops halfway up, requiring me to stick my foot under it to lift it up to stop the clutch plate just...

    thank you...

    Just a quick note to thank the members of this forum who have generously given of their time and advice to help me get my car back on the road. Yesterday, with trepidation, I reversed my old car off the drive and on to the actual public highway, and took it for a spin. It worked! I even got...

    Removing the wipers’ park function

    Does anyone know how to switch off the P4’s ‘park’ function on its wipers? I want them to just rest at the bottom of the screen, so that I can fit a variable speed delay function, in preparation for a long continental trip. (And if anyone has any good ideas about variable delay function I’d be...

    Locked on brakes

    I've read all of the excellent advice on this forum, on this subject! - and I really would be grateful for any hint as to what I'm doing wrong. My project car; not been driven for years. It had locked on brakes and having read the advice here I tried releasing the air pressure to the servo -...

    P6 estate tailgate

    Collection only. No glass but sound in all other respects. Has been a garage wall ornament for two decades. Somebody (Ian Wilson maybe?) once shared a rumour that the tailgate for the P6 estate came off a Ford Cortini mark 3 estate. Can’t be many of those left, either, mind you.

    PAS hose routing - how and why?

    Hopefully a quick and easy one: Can anyone describe the route the two PAS hoses should take from the steering box to the pump? (P6b, RHD). Am I right that the low pressure hose should go in front of the radiator in some way, for cooling purposes? - and if so, should there be some means of...

    Crankshaft pulley arrangements

    The box of bits that came with my new P6b project included a crankshaft harmonic balancer but no V pulleys (just a SERP pulley, which I am removing). The balancer has timing marks that seem to line up with the pointer on a serp front cover, but not the p6 cover I want to use. So I don’t know...

    P6 heater wiring

    The p6 project continues, when I can stand the cold. I’m trying to sort out the heater wiring, having removed the aircon and fitted a heater box. These seem to be the control wires under the dash. A double earth, and small brown with black stripe and a larger brown with yellow stripe. By...

    Removing door glass

    Hi folks. Another plea for advice in my recommissioning project. For various reasons I’m removing the electric windows but I want to keep the sundym glass. But so far I’ve failed utterly to extract the glass from its very shonky old runner. Not even budged it. Any idea what kind of glue it...

    Help! Rear brakes

    Hello fellow Roverers. My first post on here but any advice would be much, much appreciated. I’m a total novice but willing to learn from my mistakes. I’m recommissioning a P6b that’s been laid up for yonks. And unsurprising the rear brakes are locked absolutely solid (even though the handbrake...
