Re: Cam belts

It’s strongly advisable to change the tensioner as well. Shouldn’t be too expensive a job at a garage, they’re fairly easy belts to do!

Knebworth Classic Car Show, Sunday 25th August

Bit short notice but I was planning to go and exhibit individually at this as it’s not far from me-just wondering if anyone fancies a 200/400 OC contingent? We have until 26th July to book as a club.

Anyone interested?

Re: Rover 418SD Engine Running On

It does sound like a stop solenoid fault. I’ve limited experience of these engines, but did have a XUD engine in a 106 diesel which I changed the cambelt on-it would be worth checking the fuel pump is timed up correctly as it runs off the cambelt. You can do this by removing the covers armed with va...

Re: 200 BRM

Nope-I’m not having any sticky goop go anywhere near it! The black tar type stuff can actually cause more problems than it solves, too. :o

It doesn’t get driven in the wet or salt (it’s SORN’d over winter) and is washed every time it’s back from being taken out. :cool

Re: 200 BRM

Another copy & paste from Pistonheads! Bit of an update on the BRM. Took it to visit my parents in Norfolk and noticed a rather loud rattle when I got to Ely and a loss of power-turns out the cat had broken up... A genuine, original catalyst is still available from Rimmer Bros, which I duly ordered....

Really enjoyed today’s show. Must say in my year so far in the club everyone has been very friendly and welcoming!

Also, thank you to all who voted for Harry the 214SEI today! Humbled and appreciative.

Just to confirm-I collected the 214 today so I’ll be in that!

I’m also bringing my portable gas BBQ if people wanted to cook anything on it.

The organisers have asked that on the day owners are to be back with their cars by 1.45pm at the latest ready to go into the arena :D
Do we have to stay a certain length of time? Was planning to bring the BRM down but I need to be away early afternoon to pick up my partner from the station.
