    P6b stored for 21 years

    Well, last message from me on this forum I suppose. Yesterday an old friend visited me and he said he had always wanted a V8 P6. Sooooooo we made a deal. He is going to pick up the car in the next week or so. He is not new to classics, having owned his Willys Jeep for decades, has a Landcrab...

    Dutch Rover V8 "4600" - (former 2200TC topic)

    It is a very satisfying thing to do. You actually repair something - from a rust hole to new shiny metal. Do not buy the cheapest machine. I bought my 160A welder almost 30 years ago for around 700€ (secondhand) and still use it often. Never regretted the buy. My brother is using it now for...

    Brakes interchangeability

    My 1976 Rover 3500 will need all new brakes as it has been standing for 21 years. So, I am curious to learn/know about the interchangeability of parts. Front calipers - Girling type 16PB? Same as the 2000/2200? Same as Triumph TR6? Rear calipers - type? Master brake cylinder Servo - what are...

    A p6 again after 20 years.......

    Peize! Coincidence, my little brother lives there as well. Keep the Flapper injection. I have it on my Range Rover 3d and it has been very reliable in the three years I used the RR as an everyday car.

    P6b stored for 21 years

    Got a surprise delivered today. OK - the seller described the book as very good condition but I did not think the Workshop Manual was brand new. Packed in its original carton box (!) together with the chapter on the BW35 and the one on air conditioning (jay!). In the box he also inserted a...

    P6b stored for 21 years

    I never understood why the British were so fond of their folding Webasto or Britax sunroofs. You know the vinyl will need replacement after a number of years. Plus the fact it will make more noise than a proper steel sliding sunroof. In the Netherlands having a steel sunroof was very common in...

    Do not give up on the car. We need more road-going P6s in the Netherlands!

    P6b stored for 21 years

    Hoi Thijs. Ben woonachtig in centrum Tilburg (oud gemeentelijk badhuis)! Wees van harte welkom als je een keer in de buurt bent - ik werk grotendeels vanuit huis (ITer) dus ben meestal bereikbaar. Heb gisteravond jouw verhaal gelezen maar kon nog niet reageren - de forumadmin moest me eerst nog...

    P6b stored for 21 years

    Thank you Unstable Load and Willy. Yes, I reckon everything regarding the brakes will need to be reconditioned. The car has been resprayed after the fitment of new wings and doors, about 25 years ago. But the big question for me is the engine. If it is stuck then I am stuck, it possibly is a...

    Brake Bleeders

    +1 for the Speed Bleeders. Available from Demon (I think I got them there), about 12 pounds each I think. Gunsons is fine but I have often had a leak at the cap at the master cylinder. Or the cap on the Gunsons reservoir. Whatever which always creates a big mess. Use a tyre with low pressure...

    P6b stored for 21 years

    Three years ago a very good friend of my sister called me to ask if I would know someone to take over the P6b of his father, which had died. We made an appointment to check on the car which was in a huge storage barn. It has been there since 1997. Barn find? History. The car was owned...

    P6b stored for 21 years

    Hello all, new to this forum. From the Netherlands, 55 years old and into British classics since my 15th when I started to buy the monthly Thoroughbred And Classic Cars magazine. With the help of my older brother, at the age of 16 I talked my father into buying a Triumph 2500TC as a replacement...
