Re: 1934 Rover 12

Hi.
Can't help on the ign advance but we had the steering box on our Rover 10 overhauled by this company in 2010 and it is still going strong.

Re: Rover 9/20 overcharging

Hi.
First thing is to determine if the car is running a 3 brush dynamo or has been converted to a 2 brush.

Re: Rover 9/20 overcharging

Hi.
I'm in Essex so not much chance of having a look, :D. If you have some more info on what type of dynamo is fitted maybe we could offer so advise. Otherwise you need to find a knowledgeable member local to the car.
Regards,
Stuart.

Re: Rover 9/20 overcharging

Hi Mike,
Where are you based? Quite hard to sort these types of issues remotely. Does your Rover have a 3 brush dynamo like my Rover 10? If it does then from my experience they do require some careful set up to find the sweet spot between under charging and over charging.
Regards,
Stuart.

I can imaging that without lubrication the friction material would wear out very qu...

Re: Rover 10 Shock Absorbers

Hi All,
I have finally completed the overhaul of the Smith shock absorbers on the Rover and have made a short video on You Tube showing the process. Thought it might be useful to someone.

Re: Rover 10 Shock Absorbers

Thanks Mike.
I'm not sure they are viable to repair as they seem very worn but that might be the only option open to me. Thank you for the info.

Rover 10 Shock Absorbers

Hi All, So after many years of the shock absorbers doing precisely nothing I have decided to have a look at them. Have started with the front which came off ok which is a good start. As you can see in the photos I have found a period advert which shows they are a Smith Single Acting Shock Absorber. ...
