Just read about “ecu vacuum connector”, does that need to be connected??
Yes that's for the map sensor but you'll still have spark. Are the injectors pulsing when cracking?

Always use 5W40 fully synthetic in all my K Series :D
And so do I. Better when starting up in winter and no damage to the engine. I'm used to change it every year (6.5k mls).
Mad not to really it's normally not much more expensive anyway

Re: Rover 200 R3 and Rover 25 Steering Racks

The R8 and R3 use the same style of rack which is a fair bit different as described above. I fitted a ZR rack and sub frame to my R8 using the column, rack etc from the ZR. Was a bit of a job tho had to cut away a fair amount of the bulk head and floor to do it and make a new mounting panel :scared
