Re: Rover 416-Auto with honda singlecam engine/Power steering

My 400 has heavy steering compared to a 216. I've put that down to 15 inch wheels/tyres though! Certainly not unpleasantly heavy imo. If the power steering isn't working properly it will be really noticeable when parking, especially if you don't have the car moving going from lock to lock! :D A manu...

Re: What you guys thinks it's worth

Better the devil you know!

I see that it's been relisted because the bidding didn't reach the reserve.

It's a private auction this time & reached £1k already!

Re: What you guys thinks it's worth

Yes why is he allowed to relist it and not offer it to the next bidder with feedback?

It may well be worth more than it reached as it's a new shell, where did he get a new shell from? :S

Removing the windscreen washer reservoir

I've just re-acquainted myself with the pleasures of a D16 oil change, done on ones back. :sad

Reference removing the oil filter:
I did toy with the idea of removing the windscreen washer reservoir, and then reaching down from over the passenger wing; has anybody else tried this?

Re: Clutch Slipping

The Honda clutch needs to be manually adjusted; do you have 1/2 inch of free play at the top of the pedal's travel?

Re: Vinny's Rover 220 GSi Turbo Diary of sorts 2010 - Today

Nice thread, keep the pictures and commentary going Vinny! :clapping

Some more back ground on those front brakes would be interesting? I'm always aware that the standard brakes are a liability especially on the Mway.

Re: Play in new wheel bearing

A good machine shop will be able to measure up both the outside dia of the bearing assembly and also the internal dia of the bore in the knuckle. If a previous bearing outer race has seized to the rollers and then spun in the knuckle for example, there should be visual evidence of whats happened onc...

Re: Drivers seat belt

I believe that there are two different patterns of the latter pretensioner stalk. In my experience the clip is pretty rubbish anyway, they don't locate the tang with the same positive click even when they're working. I have two 95 built cars, one where the buckle fell to bits and one set that still ...

It's been squirrelled away some where as it never seems to appear on the club scene. I wish that I'd u...
