Just an update... I replaced the rubber mount. The old one was rather worn and mushy. However this wasn't the source of the noise. I later discovered a worn halfshaft UJ. One of the prongs on the spider had lost all it's needle bearings! Got a new UJ from Wins and all good now.
My 73 2000 has developed some nasty noises which I beleive are coming from somewhere along the drivetrain. It's fine when idling and at speed but seems to occur when taking up drive. I was thinking it could be propshaft or UJs, but first thought I'd get some opinions here on the flexible rubber...
I've noticed a slight bit of hesitation on my 2000sc engine the last couple of days, so I thought I would check the carb dashpot to see if it needs topping up.
I unscrewed the cap to find it empty! I use the car daily and had only topped it up about 3 weeks ago.
I know these do need to be...
I like your 90's photo, it was about that time that I bought my first P6. Interesting to see that your old car was in 'Anna Lee'. Will have to look out for it if it gets repeated again. I love watching old tv shows and looking at the cars. I wonder if anyone here has a P6 that was in 'The Sweeney'.
Yes I think your wise to fit a new one. My old ones looked sound enough but I didn't want to have to do the job again in the near future. It's a right pain removing and refitting some of those small bolts!
I wouldn't bother repairing that side plate. You can still buy new ones. I bought an off side one from Geoff at Wins a couple of years ago and it fits fine with no problems. Recently bought and fitted a near side one from him and again all looks good.
It's been a while since I posted anything here so here's the latest...
About 2 months ago the Rover's Head Gasket blew and just prior to that wasn't running all that well. So I ordered a new Head Gasket set and set about removing the head. On removal I noticed that the waterways of the head had...
Yes the doors were standard length and it had different front seats.
I believe the prototype made in the 60's had the B pillars positioned further back to accommodate longer doors. I should imagine a lot of work would be involved to recreate that.
I went to a Classic Car Show at The Raystede Animal Centre, East Sussex today. Although the weather wasn't great there were some interesting cars that turned up, including a Convertible P6!
This nice 3500 was also there.
