Re: Hi, just got a 420 GSI 2.0 Tourer

:welcome I had a 420 GSi Tourer a few years ago: great car, but I changed to a 25 diesel because of the mileage I was doing and the need to keep fuel costs down at the time. :) As Paul says, get the 1995 onwards manual, which will cover you for the engine and gearbox etc, then get the Haynes manual ...

Re: Plans or projects, Car or othersiwe for 2018 ??

Any photos of the 100 Cabby ? Haven't got an online photo a/c myself, but did a quick Google and found a pic taken at Peterborough this year: https://www.flickr.com/photos/128691640@N04/46115757422/ Mrs. 220 had considered selling it this year and getting an MGF instead, but after putting almost 10...

Re: 414

Lockwood used to make dial faces for several Rover models, so that may be worth searching for if you don't want to use a whole instrument pack from a late Rover 45 or MG ZS.

Re: Intro, but not a newbie.

It would be great so see some pics of your GTi Turbo if you would like to post some on here.

Regarding parts, post a list in the 'Wanted' section and keep it updated as you find stuff........we will all be glad to help if we can.

Re: Standing water

Nigel: as T.B. says, you should find the coil in the nearside inner wing, near the battery (follow the HT lead across from the distributor cap)

Make sure the top of the coil is as clean as possible; any dirt here will absorb stray water and short out the HT to earth until it has dried out.

Re: 25 GTi tyres

FWIW, we have two 25 GTis in the family. First one was bought at 4 years old/37000 miles on the clock and had Michelins all round. (No guarantees of course that any of them were the originals, but we put new ones on all round at about 40,000 miles because the old ones were getting low on tread). Sec...

Re: Rover 214 SEI 16V Guide price up and running?

Might be worth getting a second opinion before you commit to new injectors or give up on the car! A couple of friends of mine in the W.Yorks area recommend this company: http://www.mglifestyleuk.co.uk/ I am not trying to 'dis' your local garage, but our cars have reached the kind of age now where it...

Re: Back again SD3 Vitesse now

Just to give you a little peace of mind if you decide to have a go at starting it: the 'S' series engine is safe as far as the cambelt is concerned, so if it is past its 'best before' date and decides to break on you, it won't do any internal damage :) Oily engine bay.........the 'S' series is one o...

Re: Back again SD3 Vitesse now

For anything related to the drivetrain, anybody who knows Maestros/Montegos inside out would be your best bet (probably worth registering on the Maestro/Montego forum as well as ours :wink3 ) We have a growing SD3 community here, with one of our members believed to own 5 of them at the last count!
