    Craigslist, Oregon, one-owner 3500 NADA US 2000

    Nice. Probably the car Wheeler Dealers SHOULD have bought in the US.

    Lower link arm (left hand side) for V8

    Hi Mike. This fella (in red). LH side or both.

    Fuel pump feed.

    That's one thing electric will always give you - primed float chambers.

    Oh look at that.

    Can he fix it? Yes he can!

    Sounds familiar. People still think you can run these cars on banger money. That's not the case for a 50 year old car. If it hasn't been replaced by now, likely it'll be knackered. And if you can't DIY it costs big buck. By the time mine's finished, it'll have cost £20k over a decade...

    V8 PARTS, GET 'EM WHILE THEY'RE HOT ! Page 2

    Well, that's £2.28 on items up to £1000 so I had assumed that would be the case. But it isn't actually the value that's important, the item would be lost.

    Lower link arm (left hand side) for V8

    Must be genuine NOS, not remanufactured and not the 4 pot straight type. Part number 595740.

    I'll take the side-rod if you can do that posted to a UK address at that price.

    Disconnect the Clock

    Certainly not a P6 with the wind noise from the screen.

    Disconnect the Clock

    Because no one mentions disconnecting the battery in any context and then plans to go for a drive. Just a very strangely phrased question. As I said, pull the purple wire off the back and tape any exposed part of the connector because this circuit is always live.

    Disconnect the Clock

    Why would you not want to disconnect the battery? It's a basic safety precaution for any car that is stored. The battery should be stored charged and that'll prevent any possibility of it being discharged. But sure, you can pull and isolate the (I think purple) cable any time. It's a simple...

    After 20 years a P6 again finally a V8 automatic. With work that is.....

    The 35 D8 is a points distributor and can use this internal module. The 35 DE8 is already an electronic distributor with a far magnetic superior trigger wheel. This is designed to use the Lucas db118 module on the side. It still however needs either a higher resistance coil or a ballasted...

    Australian Camshaft questions.

    I's say you need to find a taller axle and fit larger tyres if this is going to work! I don't know if the RS2000 fits but that's 3.54:1 which is the same as the P6 2000 4-pot but likely smaller tyres. Oh, and I'm guessing an LSD might be helpful.

    Australian Camshaft questions.

    A P6 is a full tonne lighter than a Land Rover Discovery and quite low geared so even with an auto worrying about torque isn't really going to be an issue unless you specify something for a TVR or the track. It'll take something quite radical to fundamentally alter the characteristics of this...

    Will 4.0/4.6 heads fit on a 3.5?

    Can't you rebuild the better engine with HC pistons? 9.75:1 and rings are less than £250 new.

    Will 4.0/4.6 heads fit on a 3.5?

    All heads fit any engine (you can leave the extra bolts out if you were mad enough to fit an early head to a late engine) 10 bolt heads must use the composite gasket otherwise you increase the CR by 0.6. Which is doable but not necessarily desirable for your engine but not really for people at...

    Power steering on a 4cyl car

    I'd massage a small, neat depression into the side of the reservoir for clearance and leave the rest be. You'd really need a 75A alternator upgrade to run the electric pump. This would be much more efficient than the mechanical set-up of course as it wouldn't have the weight and constant...

    Driving with an automatic

    People say they are unobtainium. These guys always seem to have LT77s and R380s in stock. Ashcroft Transmissions. Can't vouch for them.

    Driving with an automatic

    The electronically controlled box would effectively lock in every gear too as it controls the torque converter clutch. Remember also a P6 is a good tonne lighter so it isn't so bad from that behaviour point of view. Mine I think doesn't drop easily enough. But that's adjustable with a control...

    Driving with an automatic

    Yes. I have the 4HP and I use 3 and 2. I use 3 until the engine is warm and also as a "sports" mode on fast A/B roads. As you know it's 1:1 and therefore equivalent of "top" in the standard car manual or auto. Remember with the 3.08:1 axle and 0.73:1 gearing, 4th is HUGE. I use 2 uphill or...

    XYU 201N - 1974 3500 Auto

    People moan about prices sometimes but it only takes one or two issues you need to pay to sort out and you may as well have bought a better car. Plus in your case that originality can't be faked.

    Hi there everyone!

    Good luck. Everything is fixable with time, patience, skill and money.... As I found out. It's a real challenge. I recommissioned a car which hadn't been used for 11 years. It's still not 100% 8 years later.
