    Romantic Road

    Looking forward to: Julia Ducournau, “Titanium” which won the Palme D’Or at Cannes, only the second time a female director has ever won; the 1st being fellow New Zealander Jane Campion for The Piano ( tho’ Jane has won this twice, once previously for a short film she directed… ) Warning: Not...

    Gearbox options

    The advantage of the W57 and W58 Toyota 5-speed gearboxes are that these have been used in any number of applications and Dellow can supply the correct gearbox top; which simply bolts on and interchanges with whatever “top” the gearbox you’ve purchased comes with… the correct measurement is 58cm...

    records that never made it to CD

    I’ve been spinning vinyl for over 40 years; records are a fashion item and CDs on the decline as a format; in the car business and it’s not been possible to buy a new car with a CD player, even as a dealer install option, for several years; I am interested in “CDs that never made it to Record” (...

    Rovers and Life on Mars plus a Ford DCI Hunt style!

    Yep, Jason Statham is pretty wooden ( as usual ) but it was Saffron Burrows who was the draw for me with this, as well as the film being a rattling good yarn and ( allegedly ) based on a true story; certainly the homicidal slum landlord in the movie was a real person who was known to party with...

    Head studs

    The ARP head studs themselves are inserted with an Allen key and then only hand-tight; once the heads/gaskets are on torque the nuts up to Std. Rover spec. When I had my Rover V8 replaced it was with a cross bolted 3.9 Discovery engine, studs for the mains but retained bolts for the side...

    Head studs

    Nowt wrong with ARP studs; and re-usable multiple times unlike the stock bolts which stretch, I don’t see why there’d be an issue with removing the heads, lifting these off over the studs, in a P6B. Doubt you’d experience corrosion issues either if that’s your worry. I’ve used ARP...

    Replacing the dash pad, tips and tricks?

    Indeed, a Series 2 with a very sorry looking cracked dash cover… thanks for your advice and to others who chimed in, that’ll make things easier… Now I just need the time to get this done; currently on a driving contract for the Olympics in Tokyo ( Toyota Alphard; not a P6! ) Graham

    Replacing the dash pad, tips and tricks?

    Would appreciate feedback from anyone that’s done this, is it necessary to remove the front screen? thanks! Graham

    Not a P6, but British, and I believe it has a V8 for propulsion.

    Those Cadillacs are a 90 degree V8 with flat tappets and hydraulic lifters just like another GM divisions Buick motor we’re all familiar with; except cast iron…

    Very hot ignition coil

    Recommissioning a 50 year old car is like painting a steel bridge: you start at one end and paint to the other end, by which time you have to go back and start all over again… Graham

    Very hot ignition coil

    Possibly: a Ballast resistor needed to reduce voltage to the coil?

    Aftermarket front guard indicator

    JP, good advice, thanks! Looks like Jag XJS and Mini MK2 have similar indicator assemblies; agree that “above the badge” looks way better but forward of that is where the inspection authority want the lenses placed; this, and fitting mirrors to the front guards, also well forward, is going to...

    Aftermarket front guard indicator

    Someone’s added an indicator lens assembly to the front guard; any suggestions of what car this might be off? I can’t afford NOS NADA lens sets… I don’t really want to fit these but a legal requirement here it seems Graham
