    The Misunderstood 'K'

    Hi agreed a most informative read, enjoyed it as I have a 45 year 2000, bought with 80.000 ks on the clock to be my every day car, it had a noisy trans bearing which has been replaced with a second hand unit (bit of a story there). Also I have done a head job on it very carefully along with a...

    Broken Pinion Shaft (Not my Rover)

    Hi. Grey Rover was facing uphill at the traffic lights in the city, when the clutch was let out instead of moving forward we rolled backwards and there was a rattling sound, luckily no one behind, so Rover went home on the back of a truck. On examination the shaft appeared to have a...

    Cooler engine bay.....?

    Hi. I fitted a electric fan with the idea that Rover would be a little quieter and more economical but found that the temp was either hot or cool and used eight amps when on, so occasional flat battery, so back on went the mechanical fan and I raised the cut in temp of the electric fan so that...

    Hi and thanks. Attached is a pic of Grey Rover . The generator is a C42 and was run up (momentarly) to 40 amps and the regulator is a RB340 which is what i suspect is wrong. so I will take it to my favourite auto sparky as soon as he is back I can use it during the day ok. Cheers.

    Would you believe it? Christmas and Rovers dynamo (what I call a generator) stops working indicated by a brightly glowing ignition light, well I fitted a supposedly rebuilt genny which failed to produce enough volts 11v at idle 13v on the motorway 11v at night. I am assuming the regulator needs...

    Modern vs Classic Tyres

    I had a set of Toyo tyres on Rover and they were nice initially but two de laminated, then I couldn't find any 14 165 80 so fitted two 165 70 wondered if I was doing the right thing, anyway he drives O K although the motor will be reving a little more as I figure that the circumference is about...

    Rover wonders

    Hi. Wondering is my Rover normal (if there is such a Rover). At cruising speeds (60 mph) he wonders slightly I am correcting a little to the left then a little to the right, at it the time. There is about half an inch play on the steering wheel, I adjust it out but it comes back. Also I have had...

    carburetor settings.

    Hi everyone. Yesterday I reset the mixture on my 2200 using colortune, where the instructions say that the flame should be bunsen blue, having achieved that and with both carbs sucking evenly, idleing between 800 & 900 nicely, I took the car for a drive and the mixture seemed lean (coughing...

    sudden bang

    Hi. Thanks for replies. Well the replacement casing and shaft bolted straight on and we are mobile again. It was a nice clean break. I wonder why they break on both the 4 cyl and the 8cyl when the engine output is so different, perhaps a bearing on each end of the shaft would have prevented this...

    sudden bang

    Hi Everyone. The other day whilst pulling away from uphill traffic lights there was a bang and a rattling noise we didn't go anywhere. So after a ride home with the A A, I went underneath and found that I could turn the driveshaft without the wheels turning, clanking noise coming from inside the...

    Irrational speedometer

    Hi. I had a similar experience some time ago on Rover, and it turned out to be the nut on the end of the gearbox main shaft not being tight, allowing the scroll which drives the speedo cable to slip thereby giving a faulty reading. tightening the nut solved the problem. John.

    Daily Driver

    Hi Luke. Grey Rover is my daily enjoyable drive and he copes well with Auckland traffic. Grey Rover was a 1969 2000sc, but now has a 1974 2200tc engine with electronic ignition and an electric fan. He keeps up with the modern traffic well but, in stop/start traffic I worry about the constant use...
