    @Vern Klukas Do the TC and SC share the same camshaft?

    Thanks for the help!

    Modern vs Classic Tyres

    OK, supposedly 185 width tyres fit 5in rims. BUT, do they clear the rear upper links? Anyone know? In any case I'd probably go for 165s anyway.

    Modern vs Classic Tyres

    My 1966 P6 has some pretty old and cracked tyres on it and I'd like to get some new rubber on there ASAP. I really like how the steering handles with the classic Dunlop radials (165SR14) that are on there, despite the condition of the rubber. Replacements of similar design and tread are pretty...

    Is my fuel pump bad?

    Verdict is in! It was the fuel pump. Having rebuilt it and re-installed it, the car is transformed. I wanted to take the pump apart to try to verify if that was the problem anyway, so I ordered the top-side rebuild kit from Agri-Parts for £12.95 on eBay for the David Brown 990 on Monday and it...

    No worries! Just making sure I understood

    Is my fuel pump bad?

    Thank you! I had found the other thread about that as well. There is company in Ireland stocking them as well. Super good info.

    Is my fuel pump bad?

    I'm missing something. Is that a Fawlty Towers joke? Anyway, my profile says where I live, so that's how @Chalky knew. I live in Dublin but I'm American.

    Is my fuel pump bad?

    Thanks everyone, I'll do some further investigation. It's definitely a fuel issue, not spark, as I can see the air in the pump and the clear filter sometimes is almost empty. Now that I understand things a little better I'll switch to the reserve intake as @j_radcliffe suggested and see if that...

    Is my fuel pump bad?

    Thanks for the response! By other fuel line, do you mean switching the reserve valve? I haven't tried that, I will give it a shot. It takes some driving for this condition to happen because the car needs to get pretty warm. I didn't realize it would leak fuel into the oil system if the...

    Is my fuel pump bad?

    Hi all, I've just gotten my car last week ('66 SC with a 2200 motor) and have driven it a few times. It runs absolutely fine when cold, but after the car has heated up for awhile it will start cutting out, especially under load. I have now established that when this happens, I can see lots of...

    Which headrests are these?

    Thanks, Chris! I didn't know it was that rare, but good to know. I like this color quite a bit even though it wouldn't probably have been the color I would have sought out on my own. Interesting about the sunroof. I think only Webasto still makes this kind of roof and I'm fairly certain this is...

    Which headrests are these?

    @badrover I found receipts! They are Mercedes W108 mirrors from a 280SE. They don't have Mercedes logos on them so I am assuming they are reproductions. They fit the car well, though. They are not the same brand, but these mirrors: side mirror W108/109/111 RH repro, 79,73 €

    Tachometer showing double

    I just found this guide and will go through that: http://www.triumphclub.co.nz/wp-content/gallery/pdfs/Smiths.pdf

    Tachometer showing double

    Yes, the red line is at 6000 and the end of the red block is at 7000 RPM. It's from a TC. It appears to be 2x at idle, but I can't actually say for sure at high revs because, working solo, I can't tell what it says on the gauge in the car while under the hood/boonet with the multimeter. I will...

    Front Seat Belts

    Thank you, that would be great! Thanks, this helps! I definitely need to get the workshop manual. I'm going to order it from the Rover P6 club on CD. Thanks! I'll see if I can feel around and find the mount point by feel. I did find the mounts behind the rear parcel shelf for the back seats...

    Which headrests are these?

    Interesting! They are quite similar to images I just found by searching for Paddy Hopkirk mirrors, but mine are only stamped on the bottom with a small symbol. Looking at them I am pretty certain that they were put on some time in the last 20 years. The chrome work is too good and the glass is...

    Front Seat Belts

    I am pretty sure that not all UK cars shipped with seat belts at all. Googling around I found Britain required the fitting of seatbelt anchorage points in the front of new cars in 1967 (post-1965 cars had to be fitted with belts retrospectively) From: Test your knowledge: When was wearing a...

    Tachometer showing double

    Thanks @sdibbers. Yeah, that's what I thought. It's the 4 cylinder one, so it must be a different problem. I am not sure if it's an RVI or RVC tachometer (I just learned about this) and will try to figure out which one it is if that helps.

    Tachometer showing double

    Hey everyone. My 1966 Series 1 P6 SC has had a tachometer and clock from a TC fitted at some time in the past. This is a plus for me. It has the 7000 RPM red line, so I am pretty sure it's from a TC not a V8. But, it's showing double the actual RPM. It seemed wrong and so I verified this with an...

    Front Seat Belts

    Hi everyone! My new 1966 Series 1 P6 has a set of Britax diagonal-only front belts fitted. I am not in love with driving it much like that for obvious reasons and want to fit 3 point belts. The issue is that I am pretty sure the Britax belts are not mounted in the normal location: they are...

    Which headrests are these?

    Thank you! They must indeed be after market. Well they do fit the car. The car is now mine! Here are a couple of photos like @mrtask asked for. I'm told the color is willow green and was reasonably rare. I believe the sunroof is a Weatherall item. Not sure if the factory shipped those or if...

    Which headrests are these?

    Rover definitely made the seats for the earlier cars without headrests. I saw some on other cars that were for sale, like this one: 1967 Rover 2000 TC - 3 owners For Sale | Car And Classic Haha, well I am guessing they are either 1966-specific or after market in the period, added to seats that...
