can any one give me some help/advise with my p4 100
5000miles ago I had the engine completely rebuilt,since running it in I have noticed a loud knocking noise when under load and when the car is started from cold,this goes when it is warm ie after about 2 miles.
I have retarded the timing and have had some success when the car is warm/hot,but when started from cold the knocking is still there I have been advised that the distributor may be faulty. I have hade the car for 37 years so am reasonably familiar with how it should sound and this is not how a Rover should sound
