Re: 216 cabby pg1 swap help!

I would tend to agree with you.

That mount could be from a 400/45/ZR. Or even anything else that uses a PG1 gearbox!

Re: Jump Starting

If you invest in a jump starter, remember to recharge it after each use, otherwise the internal battery will deteriorate prematurely.

Re: Gearbox Rover 214 & 216 compatibility?

The 216 has a higher final drive (differential) ratio, which will allow more relaxed cruising but may reduce your acceleration. '35' in the serial number represents a 3.5:1 final drive ratio, '39' represents 3.9:1. It would probably drop the engine revs at 100kph by approx. 400 rpm. The only other d...

So the 1995 was optional optional equipment, does that mean can put the old style steerwheel in my 1994 cabby ?
Yes, you would probably need to fit the matching cowl and stalks from a non-airbag car.

Re: 214SEI driver's airbag fitting

Re: HELP: Rover 200 cab actuator central door locking!

Yes, definitely take the complete door latch, lock, actuator and motor with wiring from each door on the 418: you should have enough parts to work with then!

I think the main difference between the 4-door and 2-door version is the length of the wiring.
