Re: New member and P2 owner

Usually Champion N8 or NGK B5ES or equivalent plugs work best in a P2. The N9Y's although not that different in heat range have a projected nose. How long has the oil in the sump been there? If the oil on the dipstick is smelly, it is worth draining the old oil out and removing the oil strainer from...

Re: Thermoflex seal

John and Tony, The early/ late P2 thermoflex seals are very similar. The P3/ Series1 land Rover pumps are very different and the seal used is lower than the thermoflex seal, if both are stood on end, due to much shorter spring. If it could be used (not sure of diameters of P3/ LR spindles relative t...

Re: Rover 12 steering

Yes, that's the petrol reserve. There are a lot of steering joints in the system, with a great deal of scope for lost motion that shows up as play. As Luli says, Steering Services may be able to help rebuild the box.

Re: Smoking rebuild engine

Hi Stef, In addition, were the liners honed so the rings could bed in, before fitting the new pistons? It does sound as though the rings could need further investigation but as you say, compression is fine. Have you considered that the oil may be reaching the combustion chambers from the top (down t...

Re: P2 brake balance assembly

Thanks Luli and Mike Mike: is it mainly the pin which wears or the fork or both equally? There is quite a lot of movement in the joints but not necessarily affecting the operational direction. And do you know the thread details etc for replacment forks? The parts book seems to say 5/16" for the for...
