Re: Jump Starting

The clock display problem is almost definitely a coincidence. The clocks fitted to the 25 and 45 do misbehave as they get older: generally segments will come and go at random! (Mine is stuck permanently at 5:52, so is only accurate twice a day, but that's another fault!) There is a guy on eBay who ...

Re: warning light.

Is it a red light marked 'Check Engine'? That was fitted on cars with the Honda 1.6 engine and if you have a quick search around this forum you should be able to find some information on how to read codes from a flashing LED on the ECU :)

Re: 1994 Rover 220 GSi - Project (of sorts)

The temperature gauge issue is likely to be a f...

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.
