    Gearbox Noise

    Recently changing gear on my 2200SC became increasingly difficult when hot, particularly the 3-2 downchange, requiring a lot of force to go in. Out of the blue the problem went away and the gearchange now is better than it's ever been. The problem is that it has developed a rattling or...

    Seam Sealer for Sills?

    I've just removed one of the sills and found that the bottom edge has been sealed with seam sealer. Is this correct? I thought there was meant to be a gap to allow water to drain.

    MoT Passed

    No advisories and the tester (a veteran of 40 years in the trade) said they were the best back brakes he'd ever tested. Thanks to this forum, and particularly Quattro's photos for that. And free road tax as well! P6 motoring is looking good.

    Main Bearings

    Is it possible to replace the main bearing shells with the engine in situ and if so, how? HBoL says only the big ends can.

    Floppy Gear Lever

    I was out this afternoon and all of a sudden, just as I was changing from first to second the gearlever went all loose and I found I could wave it about without it doing anything useful. After a bit of experimentation, I found that by pulling up on the gearlever, I could change gear, albeit in...

    Are the headlamps meant to go out when you select "Fog" on the dashboard switch?

    I'm new to this Rover business, having just acquired a 1974 2200SC. Needs a bit of work, the timing chains are noisy, the driver's seat is full of holes and the brakes keep locking on. I've checked the pedal height, think I'll rebuild the master cylinder next. I'm sure there's a lot of advice...
