    Help please rear valance screws

    I replaced the original spire nuts with new, stainless steel ones. It meant using an Allen key to do them up but they looks very tidy. These look the same: 10 BIKE FAIRING PANELS STAINLESS BOLTS + M6 6MM ZINC SPRING SPIRE C CLIPS U NUTS | eBay (I don't like using metric fixings on the P6 but a...

    Flying the Flag

    Not really the sort of thing to wave here in Wales either. But each to his own.

    Fuel sender unit

    If testing it out of the tank shows the needle going through the complete sweep, the wire to the float might have bent so that it's not displaying correctly when in the tank. As I suggested above, they can be adjusted by bending the wire.

    Aren't they adjusted by bending the wire to the float?

    A few Rovers at this huge auction

    It's the Peugeot 203 pickup that caught my eye but it needs a lot of hard work.

    Rover P6 2200 SC exhaust Manifold

    I've just started a "conversation" with you. Presumably this is the new way of sending private messages.

    Rover P6 2200 SC exhaust Manifold

    If that works for you John, then it would make me very happy (meal out for my lady and I). I'll get it wrapped and investigate couriers.

    Rover P6 2200 SC exhaust Manifold

    Found it! Initially I thought it looked exceptionally good but then spotted that one of the three tapped lugs where the downpipe goes has been welded. So not 100% but still pretty good. I'll post some photos tomorrow if you like. No idea what to ask for it. I like to be generous and I don't need...

    Rover P6 2200 SC exhaust Manifold

    Are they the same for 2000SC and 2200SC? I think I have one knocking around in the garage. Perhaps a photo would help me find it, if you have one?

    Excellent result. And thanks to Falkor for showing so willing. Quattro, you say you're willing to fund it which is very generous. If you'd like to retain a "donate" link somewhere, I'd like to chip in now and again. I've done this in the past by giving away the occasional part and asking the...

    Future of the forum

    Sorry to hear of your troubles Rich. You've been a real hero keeping the forum going and I'm sure we're all extremely grateful. I said in the past that I'd be help a little and am still willing but a few changes in my life mean I'm rather more pushed for time now. So I'm able and willing to join...

    Change of Tyre size ?

    I run Michelin Energy Save + 185 70 R14 tyres and haven't noticed any downsides at all. If they're heavy at low speeds it certainly isn't obvious. And they allow me to take corners at speeds that most modern car drivers don't dare.

    Change of Tyre size ?

    They'll be fine, a lot of us are running that size on 4cyl wheel rims.

    I've swapped entire units over, and probably have some spare. Not sure what you mean by the nylon guides?

    engine oils

    1300ppm for Classic-oils 20W50. Classic Oils Heritage 20W50 I really don't know why anyone from the UK would want to look anywhere else. In 25 litre containers, it works out at £16 per 5 litres, delivered, and arrives the next day.

    engine oils

    I use Fuzz Townsend's Classic Oils 20W-50. Ordered 25l yesterday and it arrived today, better quality and cheaper than anything else I could get locally.

    Cars you didn’t expect to like.

    Fiat 128. Aerodynamics of a house brick. Looked like a shrunken Lada. Transverse leaf spring at the back. Yet it was a small Fiat so was ridiculous fun to drive, handling as if it was on rails.

    Front shock absorbers

    Are they ones off ebay that have the incorrect parallel walls to the holes for the bushes? If so, they're rubbish and I'd ask for your money back if I was you.

    How Far Have You Driven Your P6

    About 430 miles in a day: Anglesey to Bath and back. Didn't miss a beat. Been clocking up rather too many miles lately so engine rebuild on the cards. Time to rebore the 2.0 to 2.2 and fit the set of pistons I bought from Iran (!) via ebay.

    Hope it goes well. I'd pop over but am heading down the Lleyn instead.
