Re: 218 vvc Cabby (pic heavy)

So, the engine is now in and as always with modification there were little issues. http://i1127.photobucket.com/albums/l623/ickysky1/cabby/F7A0B206-B060-49F4-ACCA-9F14827487F3_zpsbkpwnw2e.jpg http://i1127.photobucket.com/albums/l623/ickysky1/cabby/F7A0B206-B060-49F4-ACCA-9F14827487F3_zpsallbtorf.jpg...

Re: Rover 216 GTi

It is a simple fix (if you have a ramp) but not one I'd like to do on the driveway.

Re: SOHC cam cover repainted

get some wet and dry on the raised bits to bring out the silver, bit of elbow grease but will look epic.

Re: rover 216 car vibrating

Sounds like the belt isn't actually tight enough, did you rotate the cams when you fitted the belts and check the tension again?

Belts go slack on deceleration, don't know if you have auto or manual tensioner but that would be the first port of call.
