Re: Original Dealer Service Schedule for 220 GSi

If your car came with a booklet titled "Owner infomation & Service record" pages 28-29 cover the maintenance schedule. I own a 220 GSI that was off the road from 2008 till 2015. It was given a through service at 85,000 and now has done 117,000. From my experience; The dizzy cap and rotor arm last ab...

Why does the J...TOK regarding ring a bell? Feel sure I've seen a few in the run. We're they all registered in the same place or am I imagining things.
There was a identical car for sale local to me last year, so its either the same car or a similar reg.

Re: Putting £ in

I've just done a spending of love with my 214 cabby: purchased for 2,500€ (£2,100), plus as much in pieces & mechanic's labour... Mind that prices on the continent are far much higher than in the mainland! But no regret, I love it! :drive1 Interesting that just after 31 January, you call the UK "th...

216SE = SD3?

if so, it's an S-series...
Good point, I took 216 SE as meaning R8 SEi :slapme
Unfortunately I dont have any knowledge of S series engines. At a guess, i would think the electrics are more related to the late Maestros & Montegos.

They both use different ignition systems so it will help to confirm which one.

Re: Gearbox advice 220 turbo

Have you got your gearbox sorted yet? I rebuilt a PG1 gearbox last year so have done a bit of research beforehand. This is one of MGJohns threads on PG1 bearing change: https://www.mg-rover.org/threads/pg1-torsen-bearing-renewal-differential-and-input-shaft.451178/ Here is a list of the bearings use...

Re: Rover Graveyard in Oxfordshire?

Its a shame he didnt list any of them last summer when i actually had some cash :sad
The trouble with them being sold as a job lot is most people cant store or transport that many cars.
If they all end up at a breakers is anyone up for a club dismantling day?

Re: Statistics: how many cabs built?

Its a shame the longbridge production figures are not available as Howmanyleft only shows cars as they were recorded on the DVLA database. For example a Rover 214 cab might be registered as a Rover 214, so would not count towards the cabriolet total. Also there could be a early 94 built cab not regi...

Re: door handle

There is a spring clip which holds the barrel inside the handle moulding, If you remove this the barrel will pull out.

Part number reference

I have come across a website that may be useful for a part number reference. The site itself belongs to a German MGR parts supplier called Allbrit, they appear to still list parts Rimmer Bros have removed from their site. Here are links for the R8, R3 and HHR sections: [R8 3, 4 and 5 door: https://a...
