Re: Official Rover Loose Leaf Wksp Manual

Hi

That workshop manual sounds excellent, how many pages are in PG MFi section and how many in the 216DOHC section.

Also how do I turn blue to get access

Cheers

Re: Hi from New member John Afd - Rover 216GTi - Pictures

Thanks Roverman for those great comments

Ref the upper colour, I believe it is Pearlescent Cherry Red Code 843/COG
Not so sure on the Grey on bottoms, anyone have an idea code that might be? Or where on the car it might be coded?

Cheers.

Thanks, Yes, there is an original heat shield on the first silencer, top and bottom in two halves, that is the one with a broken lower clamp. Thanks, I now appreciate how significant those heat shields are. Will ensure it is 100% fixed soon.

Cheers

Hi there, I am a newby, just joined member with a 1990 216 GTi. Posting some pictures of it soon. Early days for me , but I am happy to help. I do like writing and photography so I may be useful to you for the publishing/newlsetter role. I will try and make the AGM, perhaps discuss it then. John Afd
