    Rover 3500S Center Crossmember

    I have a center cross member, the one that supports the diff extension tube, available for free. You pay shipping, I'll gladly package it and search Parcel Monkey for the cheapest shipping cost. The cross member is from a 3500S, a car that spent its life in Southern California, so it is rust...

    Fuel tank sender unit

    Hello all, I'm not sure where I should post this question since there doesn't seem to be a section for fuel systems so I will try here. Can anyone give me a length measurement for the fuel sender float arm? The best measurement would be from the center of the mounting plate to the end of the...

    Steering Wheel Cover

    Hi Ron, thanks for the information and for taking the time to post the photos. I noticed the size on the box says 15 3/4 inch. Is that the diameter of your steering wheel? I'm beginning to see that Rover supplied various styles and diameters of wheels. Mine, for example, is from a NADA 200TC...

    Steering Wheel Cover

    Hi Gerald, thanks for the hints, especially about wrapping the rim before fitting the outer cover. My wheel is the large 17 inch diameter one. I currently do have power steering that I salvaged from a 3500S and coupled that with a Moto Lita 'knock off' 15 inch wheel from Germany. But I don't...

    Steering Wheel Cover

    Hello Fellow Roverites, I'm not sure if this question is appropriate for this section or perhaps under Steering/Suspension but has anyone found a good source for leather steering wheel covers? I'd like to increase the size of the wheel rim to get a 'fatter' feel as opposed to the original...

    Synthetic Oil in Steering Box?

    Thanks guys, for the input. Since my original post, I discovered what may be a downside to using Redline gear oil. I tried it in the Tremec 5 speed gear box that I am using in my Rover and while the smoothness of shifting improved, a leak developed past the rear seal. So I drained the...

    Synthetic Oil in Steering Box?

    Does anyone have an opinion about using synthetic oil in the manual P6 steering box? The service manual calls for EP90 but I have some Redline gear oil that is claimed to be the equivalent of EP90 and am wondering how wise (or stupid) it would be to use it? Cheers, Tom

    Differences in HD8 carbs?

    Hi Christopher, thank you for the photo and information. What I"m trying to do is decidedly non-Rover and perhaps a bit off topic for this Forum. I am converting my E-Type to triple SUs from the dual Stromberg setup but trying to do it as cheaply as possible. To that end I am using a stock...

    Differences in HD8 carbs?

    Hello all, can anyone tell me what the differences are between the HD8 carbs used on the 2000TC vs those used on the E-Type Jags? In particular I am wondering about differences in the choke mechanism including the jet housing? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Tom

    Front Spring Bump Stop Clearance?

    Thanks, Ron, for taking the time to measure. I did fit new springs from a 3500 V8 model because I wanted to increase stiffness. I also fitted a Ford 5 litre V8, along with a number of other mods. That has increased the weight at the front thus compressing the springs more than stock. I'm...

    Front Spring Bump Stop Clearance?

    Hello All, could someone tell me what the clearance between the bump stops in the front springs should be? I measured the clearance on mine (new springs fitted) and it is about 1 inch. This strikes me as too close but I'm just guessing. Any help appreciated. Cheers, Tom

    Front Suspension Top Link Question

    Re: Front Suspension Top Link Question - Follow-up Please excuse my previous post. I must be losing it;-) I just noticed the stiffener shown on the diagram in the service manual so now, at least, know what it looks like. I guess the question now is, what is the stiffener for and would its...

    Front Suspension Top Link Question

    Looking at the illustration of the front suspension in the service manual I see reference to a mysterious 'set bolt'. The outer top link mounting bracket (pivot block) has a 3/8 threaded hole and the illustration shows the following for that hole: "Set bolt (3.8 in. UNF x 1 3/8 in. long) fixing...

    Front spring clearance with sheet metal

    Ron, thanks for posting the pics. Your springs are what I was hoping to achieve with mine, nice and straight (minus, of course, the debris from the herd of cattle;-) On the other hand we don't get too many herds of cattle wandering the streets of Los Angeles so that is one worry I don't have...
