Re: Oil sump

This is the most relevant content I have for the K series sump - from the manual for the coupe, tourer and cabriolet from 1996 to 1999 - so 1.6 K16. I *assume* the instructions will be the same for the HHR 1.6 K16 engine: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50047235831_5e7c643dc1_o.jpg The Wynns RTV...

Re: The Wife Will Go Mad

We should collectively be looking for a run-down stately home that the national trust haven't bought up. Buy it, restore it, and open say the east wing to the general public (on the understanding "the family" lives in the rest of the building) and add a tea room, then park all the cars we want but c...

Re: The Wife Will Go Mad

Is there a simultaneous purchase that could be made, like a Spa day, or... well, something she's always wanted?

Anyway your garden is long enough, so I can't see the problem... although I also have an issue with any car count, but my limit is 1 :slapme

Re: 216 Cabriolet, Honda DOHC engine, oil leak

If it’s gearbox side it’s most likely to be crank seal that has failed. Might just be as simple as a none torqued sump gasket. Gearbox on the other side on a Honda, Dist...! Taking that into account, I agree. The D16 series is known for crank or cam seal leaks at high mileage. If you read the Honda...

Re: Power steering pump - belt type and size

My PAS pump has a single V pulley whilst the pulley on the crankshaft is a multi V type. Unless I have completely misunderstood something here, I don't think you will find a belt that will match both pulleys. Are you expecting the PAS to run off the same belt as all of the other ancillaries? (alter...

Fit the best... fit a Gates belt (I'm not on commission).

Yep. As would this (although if you find a box of these, they're most likely stale by now as they're not actually made anymore:

Great pics.

That green looking 220GTi in picture 5 of the R8's, was that a real colour?

Or some generous photo shopping :laughing2
As per Jeremy's post... And the body coloured wheels were an option by the way. Ever seen any though?

New magazine adverts launched

The Rover 200 & 400 Owners Club wizards have been working hard (again) to bring you more Rover content relevant to the cars the club supports. Specifically, Steve Huckle (our current Web Master and former Treasurer) has updated all the magazine adverts that you can get to via the "Cars" menu on the ...

Re: Slow indicator

I have spare relays. If we can identify which one it is I’ll send you a replacement. I *think* the colour means they're of the same type regardless of where they're fitted... but don't quote me. I.e. if you have a "yellow one" as Dist said, then you have a replacement. Best to check the markings on...

Re: Manual or auto? 91 216GSI Fair price?

Thank you very much for your input, especially about the oil changes. I'll make a note of it for future reference. What I found strange about the auto was that when it changed gears I felt a sudden and a very faint jolt. Also, it felt that it changed from 1st to 2nd extremely quickly. On one occasi...

Re: Manual or auto? 91 216GSI Fair price?

I personally like the auto boxes. Only 4 speed so all the gearing is longer but the box still kicks down well for an overtake if you want it to - but you don't get the 9.2 second 0-60 time of the manual. It's longer in 4th than the manual box in 5th, so you're pulling a few hundred rpm less at 70 th...

Re: 1998 416 1.6 Tourer. Which HP - 112 or 122 ?

You have a 1.6 K series 16v MPI engine - so it's developing maximum power closest to 112HP (I'm not sure it's exactly that figure). Be careful if you're just going by BHP as the 1.8 cars develop about 115. The 1.8 VVC engines are more like 135bhp. Not sure which engine develops 122BHP. You might be ...
