I agree with Colin. I have had a short in the wires to the reverse light switch recently and it blew the fuse which left me with no gauges, brake lights, reverse lights or indicators. It would have left you with no fuel pump either.
When I bought mine I was told the LT77 had been rebuilt by a specialist but it was full of something EP thick n gooey. I had to drain it, wash it out with a mixture of Redline MTL and white spirit, then drain again and leave it overnight, then refill with Redline MTL. Smooth as silk now but...
With your 8.31 (or 9.75) engine which may or may not had its heads skimmed, and may or may not have its block skimmed, there really isn't a way of telling until you delve into a bit more. Does it have rocker shims now, or more importantly does it need them?
I have used adjustable pushrods on...
There are many different cams available for the Rover V8 and they are designed to suit the many different specs of the engine. If you're rebuilding your two tonne Rangey which you use to pull redwood stumps out with, you don't want to fit a cam suited to a TVR.
I believe the ETC6850 was...
Fosseway four pots, 5 speed box, jag diff with LSD, uprated suspension, all considered non substantial.
Sparky did have the correct engine number on the V5C when I bought it, and the correct engine capacity, so I haven't had to deal with the DVLA as yet, except to change him to historic class.
I don't think so, as long as the engine is of the same type, capacity isn't an issue (I hope :) )
Alternative cubic capacities of the same basic engine and alternative original equipment engines are not considered to be a substantial change.
If the number of cylinders in an engine is...
They all do that :)
You can lift the nozzle up slightly so it's not as far in the filler, but only an inch or so, that will speed it up, but don't overdo it, you don't want petrol everywhere. Or you can pull the trigger a little less, so the flow is less - slower is often quicker.
Back in the...
I bought one of these DAB radio adapters the other day and have also installed a dash cam. Both of these and the sat nav have plugs which go into the cigar lighter (it's a Rover, they're called cigar lighters :) ) I also got a three way 12v adapter which didn't work.
So to make life easier I...
Not sure, he was a bit hesitant with the throttle on the power run, so it could be that?
He was always quick, but I did feel there was a little something missing. Now I know what it was :cool:
I must admit I didn't expect quite that much, very pleased.
I really must proof read :)
D'oh! well spotted
I'll change that to 284 as it should be. My laptop battery was dead from the mapping so I had to post that on my phone :)
His printer had burned out so I had to take a pic of the screen with my phone.
They're Warrior heads and a Stealth cam
I’ve covered 750 miles now, oil changed from the thin watery running in stuff to some 20 50 valvoline at 600.
The engine is loosening up nicely and I’m slowly increasing the revs up to 5,000.
It’s not easy getting the auto tune working at higher revs though as you are moving rather quickly...
