Re: Rover 200 with T Series engine

Will it physically fit and does your car use the sensor in the current radiator (Some cars had blanks fitted with the sensors were - or even sensors with no wires attached!). I'd be tempted to take your rad to a local place and see if they'll re-core it as that is usually (but not always!) cheaper t...

Re: The 'K series' engine says it all about Rover

Also worth pointing out that the main reason the head gasket fails is that the coolant is run low allowing it to overheat badly. The small coolant capacity of the K series engine (one of its good and bad points), means that any coolant loss can be serious. If you keep on top of the coolant system th...

Re: 'Ultimate' gasket and bolts

The gasket should sit on top of the liners as that is how it seals. https://c1.staticflickr.com/8/7479/26918381470_a34dab2c13_o.jpg 20160521_121652 by E_T_V , on Flickr https://c1.staticflickr.com/8/7719/26918383060_572ffa0f81_o.jpg 20160521_121624 by E_T_V , on Flickr The photos are of a 1.8 so you...

Re: Sagging Headlining

You need the high temperature stuff (otherwise it'll droop in hot weather). Otherwise yes it is contact adhesive.

I'd HIGHLY recommend doing it outside of the car as any glue overspray or drips will ruin the car interior.

Re: Fuel consumption. Thirsty?

That is under 30mpg so on the low side. I've had much better from my 2.0 turbo.

The coolant temperature sensor is a common fault so worth checking.

Not a rover 200 but a very similar process and a good write up from Jeff.

Re: 'Ultimate' gasket and bolts

Matt is helpful and I've used stuff from him before including some stuff on my last K series rebuild. But beware the new SAIC gasket is still a MLS one and if liners are low or uneven then it'll leak. If liners are even and proud by 4 thou then MLS is the one to use (either a branded one or the one ...

Re: New battery

Have a look here: https://www.tayna.co.uk/ Ignore their best buy recommendations - well make you own mind up anyhow. Can't remember the size of the 214 battery. Could be an 063 but check your existing one to find out. If it is left parked up for long periods consider a trickle charger or a solar pan...

Re: Locking flywheel

timing pin hole - every day is a school day. I assume you use this if you take the flywheel off and need to realign it properly. . You use it for setting the timing when doing things like the cambelt. It locks the pistons halfway up the bores (I think), and then there are marks to align the cams on...

Re: Locking flywheel

6.5mm drill bit through the gearbox adapter plate into the timing pin hole works fine.

You rarely need to lock it though when removing the clutch I never need to as the external 10mm bolts aren't that tight.

Re: new other Rover - 600

The clutches on the ZT/75 usually top themselves because of the mental hydraulics on them. I had to do mine at about 110k. Clutch was fine but master leaked. Replaced master and slave packed up. Gearbox off job to change the slave so may as well change the clutch at the same time too. Horrid horrid...
