    2000/2200 Clutch Adjustment

    Could someone scan the relevant page of the 2000/2200 manual that deals with clutch adjustment and send it to me, please? I've got a V8 that's been converted to a 5 speed manual using 4 cylinder parts and am having a bit of trouble getting the adjustment right. The pushrod is screwed into the...

    Sweeney Tribute Video

    I must have been watching a bit too much of The Sweeney on You Tube as the following was recommended to me: It's a tribute video made by a group of fans, on a very limited budget. I think they've done a great job - it was certainly good enough to keep me watching until the end. There is a...

    Does Anyone Know What This Is?

    Sorry, not Rover related, and a bit of a long shot, but does anyone know what this is please? I was watching an episode of the Sweeney earlier, spotted it, but am stumped as to what it is. I thought someone here would probably know - I tried Googling the reg number (MMP 18L), figuring it was...

    28 MPG on a run - possible?

    Out of curiosity, I wanted to work out what MPG I got from my V8 at the weekend, seeing as I'd filled it before we left, and then filled it again before we came back. Travelling down to deepest darkest Cornwall, we didn't really hit any traffic all the way down, so it was cruising, mostly...

    LT77 Help Please!

    I was really pleased with myself - I've rebuilt the main part of the LT77 box with no problems, right up to now, where I try to fit the 5th gear and selector mechanism to the rear of the mainshaft. When I put all of the components together and fit them, there is insufficient room for the...

    Dakota Digital

    I'm thinking of taking the plunge and buying the Dakota Digital electronic to manual speedo box - does anyone have any experience of these that they can share, please, good or bad? I'd be interested to know which variant I need to buy and what's required in terms of modified cables, etc. I'm...

    1972 P6 V8 - The Lush

    I'm not normally one for naming cars, cars are usually things that get me from A to B and I don't have much in the way of sentimental attachment to them. Of all the cars I've had over the years only one had a name, a Ford Escort 1.8TD, which gained the name Poo. If you've ever owned one of...

    2.88:1 Diff

    I've found a Jag 2.88:1 LS Diff for reasonable money - does anyone have any practical experience of what impact this will have on the performance of a V8 P6 fitted with an LT77, please? Plugging the numbers into the following link: http://johnmaherracing.com/calculators/ ... alculator/ It...

    Familiar car, unfamiliar owner...

    Hi, my name is Martin and I live in sunny Somerset. I recently became the proud owner of a P6 that will be familiar to forum members - I discovered the build thread on here by accident after buying the car. I had some V8 cravings that needed satisfying and this fitted the bill perfectly! I...
