Re: NEC 2018 (Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery)

I had a quick chat with the owner of the race car when he picked it up after the show. He plans to get it out and about to a few track days next year and a warm welcome will be extended to any club members who show an interest in it. He plans to use the car to encourage the next generation of grassr...

Re: '97 416 SLi ignition cut-out from puddle splash

:welcome Right, I am assuming that your 416 has the Rover K-series engine (not the Honda engine, which would only be fitted if you have an automatic gearbox) and the engine has a conventional distributor cap and plug leads. If that is the case, the ignition coil would be mounted in the space between...

Re: SPARES & PARTS AVAILABLE!!!

I also checked the 'mgroverpartfinder' website and there is no stock listed there, either.... Bit of a long shot for you, but according to the dreaded Wikipedia, the transmission was made by ZF and an 'identical' one was fitted to automatic versions of the (BMW) Mini. It might be possible to get som...

Re: The Hunt For Driveability in a 416

I was reading a post that I saved from Rovertech that mentioned 2.25 was the optimum width for the exhaust pipe. Apparently this will mate up with a Rover Diesel mid section and rear box. I don't know which Diesel though ? I would suggest that if the original Rovertech post was discussing an R8-bas...

Re: Diagnostic correct: NEED steering pump

The mechanic has got it up on an elevator and found that I've got a couple of sweating tubes, need a new palier cover and new brake discs! And what's a "palier cover"? :S Working on the basis of the mechanic's main language not being English, I threw 'palier' at a couple of online translation tools...

Re: Diagnostic correct: NEED steering pump

From Rimmer Bros website, this appears to be the correct part (although they have no stock): From Year-2000, From SN-471064, CP Type-VIN, Qty Req-1, Application-Automatic - KV6 Engine QVB101490 At least that gives you a part number to work with, and here are some possible sources: https://www.mgrove...

Re: New Distributor

I am no expert on the Honda engines, but I do know they have a lot of vacuum pipes for various fuel and ignition functions.

Check all of them carefully for perishing, security and leaks.

Re: New rover 420i owner

I was one of the club members displaying at Preston Park last year, so probably had a look at your Maestro as I was walking around :cool I have changed a starter motor on an L-series diesel from above, and the layout is basically similar to a T-series petrol. On the diesel (25), I had to remove the ...

Re: Fog Lamp Switch on Rover 216 Cabriolet

Help has been given :)

I have experienced failures of the dash switches on R3s before (Nik's Cabriolet is a late model with the R3 dash) and have harvested a few spares just in case :wink3

Re: Replica Main dealer number plates

Thanks, that will be appreciated :) I had put together a shopping list of stuff I wanted from DMB, and as with most things that don't actually keep the cars running, I hadn't got around to doing anything about it! So if an alternative supplier of 'proper' number plates can be found, happy days!! :cl...

Re: Footman James (indoor) show, Event City, Manchester. September 15-16th.

Well, we haven't had 'the call', but I hear that our Matt has managed to get his 416 on to one of the independent club stands, which also includes a Cabby. :D :clapping
