    Re-con V8, Edelbrock carb and manifold, LT77 Gearbox FOR SALE

    Hi everybody. Yesterday disaster struck - one stray spark from a welder and the interior of my car was ruined, totally gutted, as indeed am I. There is indeed no fool like an old fool. The car is now scrap, but there are still some good parts left - engine, Edelbrock carb and LT77 gearbox (SD1...

    What's the best way to power an electric fuel pump?

    I need to connect an underbonnet Facel electric fuel pump (see pic). It's already connected to earth, so I need to find a handy positive connection somewhere under the bonnet if possible. I'd kind of like the pump to have its own dedicated switch inside the car, rather than it coming on with the...

    Finally got a V8 - at last!

    Well, I've owned a few P6s over the years - a '69 2000tc, a '77 2200tc and most recently a '73 2000sc, I've finally got the one I always wanted - the defining car of the P6 range, a 3.5 V8. If ever a car had my name on it, this one did. I first saw it for sale about 15 years ago and bid on it -...

    Help needed with rear brakes on new project car

    Hello all. I haven't posted on here for quite a while, I sold my previous p6 (a 2000 sc) as it had rather more rust than I thought and the engine, once I got it running, proved to be at the end of it's life. Apart from that it was fine though! However, just last week I bought a 1972 V8 in...

After some prodding with a screwdriver to test for strength, while most of the well is intact I found a small hole in the wall of the well, towards the rear of the car, such that I can...

    All four plugs oil saturated - suggestions?

    I wonder if anyone could help with diagnosing an engine problem on my 2000 sc. The car was laid up for 22 years and engine was pretty sludgy inside. It's cleaned up now and has fresh oil and petrol. It was very reluctant to start but I eventually got it going and it ran reasonably well, sounded...

    Draining the fuel tank - p6 2000sc

    Just a quick question before I dive in and get my hands dirty, as it were. I need to completely drain the 22 year old fuel from Ulrich the P6's tank and lines - had a look in the factory manual but it's a little short on detail - are the connections to the tank accessible from under the car, or...

    Presenting - Ulrich the P6 (2000 SC)

    Hallo! New member here, just thought I'd share my latest automotive acquisition - it's a 1973 Rover 2000 SC manual. It's my second P6, the first was a 1976 2200 TC that I ran in the noughties, and have always regretted selling. Anyway, I happened to glance at Gumtree a few weeks ago, where I...
