    Mystery part - where does it go ?

    My RHD 1973 2200sc auto has it fitted. My bet would be that most get launched when the bell housing gets removed. Nick

    Sump off 2000SC

    As for the oil leak, my money is on the cylinder head `O` ring at the back. Well worth a good look as they have a habit of leaking when the rubber goes hard and leaks down the back of the engine. Nick

    No oil pressure after winter layup

    Why not remove the oil pressure switch and give the hole a good squirt with an oil can, refit the switch and leave it a couple of hours to drain back through the oil gallery. Nick

    Orange P6 2200

    I did see the car in the flesh last year and it is a cracking car. Personally I would source a 2200 tc engine and return it to `as was` speck. Rover P6 2.2 2200 TC complete engine | eBay Sure it wants striping and a few bits sorting out but in my view worth the money and effort.

    Hallo From Maidstone, Kent.

    Crickey mate tell me that`s not the proper mileage. Two and a half thousand miles since 2006. I have to say I do like the strip speedo and round clock/rev counter. Have you run it through the old police computer yet? Nick

    Very Worn Ignition Switch

    Yeah it sounds like the lock needs replacing.You should not be able to remove the key with the engine still running. Have a look to see if the shear bolts have been snapped off. If they have been sheared off, it is a bit of a pain getting to it with a centre punch if they have been left whole I...

    de dion tube removal

    In the past I have followed the WM and removed one rear elbow to remove the dion tube, but it crossed my mind that you may be able to remove it if you can compress it enough to get it past the the fixed studs in the elbow. Has anyone tried it this way? If so did you need to leave the weight on...
