    4 Cylinder Fuel Tap Fix

    Easy enough to take off and it's solid brass, the little grub screw holds the sleeve in place with the o ring on, boil in the pan or penetrating oil usually gets it moving

    How did you get on with the updated gasket from class parts, I'm in the same boat, which one did you buy and has it leaked since, and finally what torque did you do the sump nuts and did you use any sealant, that's my next job thanks

    Sticky annoying servo

    That was my next question, the boost ratio, I've found ang do a full rebuild kit, plus the air valve, no change out of £100 tho, might start with a new air valve first and see how I go on, don't know how you split it to get to the big diaphragm there's no circular clip on this

    What could be done for the sound

    When I bought my 68 v8 it had a 2 inch straight pipe from the bend over the rear driveshafts, what a deep hollow sound running just the centre box, sounds like an American flathead, I can recommend the burble, I did post a video on the Facebook rover p6 club site, give it a try

    Newtronic systems electric ignition

    Hi rover Alex, it was hard to get on the shaft, after many scrapings of plastic it went on, tried tapping with a socket but couldn't get it to sit level to the sensor, started up better but the annoying misfire is still there so cap and leads and rotor to change next, the crack in the disc...
