    Exhaust emissions

    I found the "unofficial" checker after the TFL site kept bringing up one of mine as having to pay. That particular vehicle is manufactured 1972, but registered in 1982, and is tax exempt, so I thought maybe that was the reason. This thread made me check again, and now it comes up ULEZ exempt on...

    Exhaust emissions

    Oil pressure switch thread?

    IIRC it's on the RH side of the block, in the lower rear corner, somewhere between the bottom corner of the side plate and the sump line.

    Just make sure that the gasket mating face on the sump is perfectly flat and don't overtighten the bolts.

    Bw35 sump gasket

    I've always used cork, but that was from years back to more recently, when new offerings have come on the scene, which I've not had experience of, and have heard some reports that they're not all they are cracked up to be.

    Bw35 sump gasket

    Don't use sealant. You can use a little Vaseline to hold the gasket in place while you fit it if you need to.

    Selector rod bushes

    All or any of the following: Selector striker lever, selector rod bushes, gearlever spherical seat, and gearlever, that's about it for parts, but the gearlever retainers incorrectly assembled can also cause the same problem, so far better to look at the car before ordering parts.

    Tetraboost on Lower Compression V8 - Worth It?

    It won't do any harm, the higher cr engines were designed for 5 star, and will notice the benefit, the lower cr engines less so.

    Front clutch on bw 35 P6 3500

    The rear band strut may have not been located correctly and broken the band, but the rear band will only give you a loss of REVERSE and engine braking in "1", it won't affect forward drive in any other way.

    Assistance required with Rover 2000tc.

    It's always difficult diagnosing a problem that happens to a car when it's driving at 50mph, and a couple of hundred miles away, but, if you wanted a stab in the dark, I'd say check the coill.

    What can you tell me from this engine number....?

    ^^^ You could well be right. That part has changed since I looked into it a good while back. Same as the other changes you can now make for "safety and economy" that don't affect things in the same way they used to.

    What can you tell me from this engine number....?

    AFAIK you shouldn't have had to, the engine is of the same type as the original, so no proof needed, the extra capacity just means you lose the MOT exempt status. But, most of the monkeys at DVLA haven't got a clue about the rules anyway.

    a minor thing, but wondered if its just me!

    You don't have to wait until the fuel starts flowing, just insert the nozzle from over the boot (not over the wing) and it should be fine.

    What can you tell me from this engine number....?

    Not if it's taxed in the Historic class.
