Re: Dailying an R8 or 45

My 1.4 K Series goes like a rocket, in fact to much power compared to the mediocre brakes :sad I think that all the 2/416's came with a bonnet acoustic blanket whereas the lower spec 1.4's didn't, that seems to make a lot of difference to cabin noise levels. Still possible to mix and match before al...

Re: Clutch Slipping

This isn't a five minute job! Take the battery and the tray out also remove the induction trunking first. This is an opportune moment to change the antifreeze and thermostat at the same time. There is a locking feature on the adjuster so suss it out before turning the adjuster nut; you want more of ...

Re: Dailying an R8 or 45

There can be issues letting a garage service these cars, especially regarding spares parts & oil. Don't use modern thin engine oils for example as oil leaks are identified in the MOT. Stick with a good quality 10-40. Honda dealer serviced my D16 auto before I bought it with a 5 or 10-30 engine oil a...

Re: Automatic Oil Pipe connection to radiator

I have a SOHC Auto, I will nip out and look while it's not raining. Edit: As you look at the engine and both oil feed banjo unions on top of the box, underneath the distributor. The l/h/pipe nearest to the drivers side & closer to the slam panel; as you know they turn into hose that are strapped tog...

Re: Rover 416-Auto with honda singlecam engine/Power steering

My 400 has heavy steering compared to a 216. I've put that down to 15 inch wheels/tyres though! Certainly not unpleasantly heavy imo. If the power steering isn't working properly it will be really noticeable when parking, especially if you don't have the car moving going from lock to lock! :D A manu...
