Re: P3 Gearbox Mount

Coincidence! I drained & refilled my gearbox today (P2 Tourer 1947) and noticed that I am missing a rubber pad (212423) on one side - the other side looks pretty crusty too! The bolt was screwed right down on to the top of the gearbox case! so 2 new pads please! The oil was pretty horrible & has bee...

Re: Jacking points

That sounded like a "Don't ask me how I know " moment!!
Reminds me - I have to check my exhaust mountings..it looks like a made up system and can be improved I think!

Re: Jacking points

Not sure what these wobbly Jacking points are!? My car has jacking points accessed inside the car for the Rover Jack. If using a trolley jack I would fit the jack's pad under the axle as far out board as you can and lift away. Put an axle stand under the axle when at the working height, and remove t...

Re: 1934 Rover 12 sadly selling

I too have followed your resto-saga! youi have done a cracking job bringing the car back to life. As you may have seen I put a thermostat in & so far ...no more overheating (fingers crossed!) I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer back in 2004, and am still here (ok without the prostate! Trust me - ev...

Re: Shock absorbers

Thanks Luli. My tyres are pretty old and should be replaced before I do any serious motoring and Radials are perhaps the way to go. My steering is quite direct an no discernable play on joints and king pins (working lubrication system!...well lots of oil evident!)

Re: King pins and thermostats and fuel

All back together now! After reassembly and initial tightening there was a substantial leak from the thermostat housing so I retightened the nuts some more, leak was less. I was nervous about tightening them too much (many bad experiences with Austin seven studs...) but I persevered using the 1/4BSW...

Re: Shock absorbers

Interesting Luli. Do you have any drawings for the dimensions of the brackets etc? No point in reinventing the wheel! I read many of your chapters yesterday via the Hebrew / English translation of course. I am intrigued that the "name" as translated for the Tourer comes through as "Terrorist"! I hop...

Re: Fuel not shutting off (occasionally)

All cleaned & put back (plenty of red silt at the bottom of the bowl, but nothing to block a jet nor valve). However it still overflowed. The leak appeared to come from the throttle spindle...the easiest route I imagine. I see there have been previous discussions about fuel height levels When i took...
