Re: My K6 just dies on me while driving

I had a similar thing happen on my 75 KV6 some time ago and that was a crankshaft sensor. It would certainly be worth trying.

Re: Replica Main dealer number plates

DMB graphics. They advertise Ford dealer plates but they will do others. You will need to send them a photo of the graphics that you want copying. We have a discount arrangement with them for club members. Contact John B for details.

And now "showing" in the current CCW. There is another excellent plug for the club in the Tomcat running report in this edition as well.

Re: 1990 416GSi

Prism velour was a NCO. If the interior is Prussian Blue then the exterior must be either Azure Blue or Atlantic Blue, both of which are nice colours. Prepace, the Lightning and half leather in a 416GTi is unusual. I wasn't aware it was available on the 416GTi. I know it was used on the 420GSi Sport...

If it's a 416GTi it should have full leather interior.

Re: Cool Heater Always a Bad Sign?

Both of my 214 s are SPi but I will check at the weekend to see how the heat transfers through the radiator. They should warm up very quickly. The whole idea of all alloy and low capacity coolant is that warm up is quick which makes the engine more efficient on short journeys unlike my wife's 25 die...

Re: doorCDL operates when driving away

Summit Garage in Dudley would be able to do it but there must be other ex Rover dealers or Rover specialists in Birmingham that would have the T4 testbook.

Re: doorCDL operates when driving away

We had this on my wife's facelift 25. My local ex Rover dealer disabled it. Any garage with the T4 diagnostics can do this. If you can tell me where in the country you are, we may be able to direct you to a garage with T4.

Yes, Duncan is correct. The article is about the main relay for the Honda engine.

Re: BMC/BL Rally & Spares Day, Peterborough 5th August 2018

On the entry form it states that postal applications need to be in by 1st July. The number of applications by the 1st July determines the size of the area each club is given. Anyone paying on the day will not be parked with the club. They will be directed to a separate area by the organisers. This i...
