Re: Rover 216 SE starting issues

Having just read your edit to your original post stating that it is a Honda engine, I guess your car must be an 'R8' after all.......maybe a 216 SE cabriolet?

Hopefully one of our Honda experts will be along soon :wink3

Re: Rover 216 SE starting issues

I would assume that a 216 SE would be an SD3, so as mentioned by others here, it will be the S-series engine as also used in the Maestro and Montego. I can't remember if all SEs were fuel injected (Lucas EFi, like the MG Maestro 2.0) or if some of the earlier ones had a carburettor. Could you clarif...

Re: Dash cams

As an alternative to running a cable all the way down to the cigarette lighter, cound you modify the interior lamp to accommodate a suitable USB output?

Then you can just hide some wiring above the roof lining :)

Well, that's a "Yes Please" from me!

If you would contact me by email, we can discuss the finer detail of getting things sorted. My email address is on the contacts page of The Viking.

Thanks

Re: 1997 200 Vi that will be de-MG'd soon

Well, John, that is impressive!

If you need a large workshop space in the Birmingham area at the end of March, I think I may know of one :wink3

All pairs of hands welcome :clapping And if we can scrounge some electricity, the coffee machine sounds like a great idea too! Plodder........I like the sound of your 416: could it be made available for the show in return for our best efforts at reviving the paint? We also do a very good grey plasti...

Re: Strange electrical fault...!

One thing confusing me here........you said that you were able to restart the engine, but it would cut out when the dipped beams were switched on. If the alternator had failed to put enough charge in the battery to keep the engine running, there would definitely not have been enough charge to run th...

Would you remind us all where the meetings are held, Trevor? I wouldn't mind betting that nobody will go looking in the 2019 thread to find it :wink3

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 ...
