Well balls again. Thought I'd whip off the original fuel filter and put on a fresh one. Can't seem to get the nuts off and I've ended up bending the top part of the filter so now it leaks fuel. I'm gonna give up and call my mobile mechanic on this one. Ffffff uuuu rover y u h8 me

Also not quite sure what the hell this is meant to be attached to? Rover is off the road now till I can sort the filter as a soft squeeze of the fuel lines shows it will leak fuel from the cylinder part on the top of the filter. Moddafokka

Does yours have a charcoal thingy next to the fuel filter - could it be the connector for that ?

I tried my best to prevent it moving but it's tight as a hell. It does need one given the age and clearly looks original. It's worth me paying my mechanic to suffer with. Also, I tried to sort the rear wash wipe pump as that's dead but they've sent me the wrong one. Unproductive day for me

No I don't think it is. Seems to be running off the alarm which, clearly looks like it's been disconnected now. Lawl

I'm consoling myself with my original rover handbook. I feel better knowing my car is the same one on the manual. Probably.

Also my receipts can go in here, I'm quite festidious like that.

Ha I know, but it came with nothing, so I am effectively GROUND ZER0. But, judging by the mechanical condition and the bodywork, it's been dearly loved. I just hope to improve it that much better.

Tam has it, think he has a few R8s. He posted a pic of it recently, don't think it's been up to much of late.

 

I didn't get a handbook with mine, only a service book that fortunately made up most of the history.

Right this has been booked in with my trusty mobile mechanic for next Monday. I've asked him to do the cambelt/pump etc as well, he seems sceptical about being able to get the bottom pulley off, but here's hoping. I'm going to replace the thermostat prior I think, it runs a touch cool. No idea where it is though, I'll have a look at Haynes later, unless anyone can enlighten me?

Left side of the engine. IIRC it helps to move the distributor out of the way.

Small update today. Trusty mobile mechanic fitted the new fuel filter with ease lol. It lives! He even checked the rear shoes and cylinders, and pleasingly, he said it's had new cylinders and shoes and brake hoses recently. No real issue with the brakes he said, just seems commensurate with the type of car. Also timing belt checked, in good health and he said no real need to change right now so I've left that. I'll probably still get it done in a couple months I think when winter starts to loom though. There were timing marks on the side of it which meant it has been done recently too.

Not much by way of progress at the minute due to work being extremely busy and rainy weather. Rear wash pump replaced (new old stock) and it works but there's a blockage so will have to inspect the in line valves. Curiously, the rear wiper has stopped working completely. Anyone know what the cause may be? It worked fine when I was testing the rear wash wipe, but now doesn't move.

Oh and I got 2 parcels a few days ago from fellow shiters, thank you!. Will be sticking the replacement drivers door trim on when it's dry, I've got some Tigerseal ready. I pulled out the stereo that was in the Rover, only to find it's been wired directly to it, no clue how to put the original one back in so  I gave up. Boo

 

I bought a cheap headunit locally and failed miserably in trying to wire in a universal iso lead. Took me an hour as well crimping and connecting only for it not to turn on. Looked easy enough, just connect the same coloured wires up (clearly not for me). That's about the best I can do, will just visit a local audio shop and get them to do it.

 

Further update, one of the rear speakers is blown. I'll probably just take the front door cards off and replace them with new average quality halfords specials, at least it'll make the longer journeys bearable with ACTUAL bass rather than paper rustling.I'll have a go looking at the rears on my rest days too, gives me something to look forward to. Oh and I have discovered the NSF CV boot is split. BASTAR. Nay worries, I'll get that done shortly too. I'm planning on getting a new rad for it, as although it works fine, it runs a little cool, and there are some fins missing on the inner bottom half of the rad and seeing as it's around 40-50 new, I'll get one in the next few weeks and fit with a new thermostat.

 

Slow progress, but, hopefully I'll get it to where I want it to be in the next couple of months.

Headunits aren't that tricky usually. You only need two lives and an earth. Are you sure you had power on the live feeds?


What's the retail on one of those plumbed in fire extinguisher systems?

Not much progress recently as I've been busy. Stuck the new complete door strip to the driver side, muuuuch better! Also new shite acquired, say HALLO to ma lil frend... Trailer mctrailer face. Mine for the sum total of 20 quid.

Seller even gave me some solid wood replacement panels which are good. It's a solid old thing just needs a little TLC. It will scrub up nicely. Chuffed!

It was literally 3 minutes down the road from me. Lovely bloke, explained everything as I've never had a trailer before and enjoyed seeing my Rover as well.

 

Going to buy a light board for it with another plate, and perhaps next week start slowly putting in the new wood parts to the bits that need doing.

 

Also, in other news, I'm tempted to renovate the interior. It's actually lovely apart from the driver seat which has a small tear in the stitching. I'd love to see if I can get leather or perhaps a newer interior.

While I remember and before I go on my jollies again. I still haven't received the v5 for said rover yet. You may be has well getting the form and applying for your own. You don't have to pay a fee if you simply say you haven't received one. I know this is a ball ache but it's been a while now . I shall leave it up to you. Yes leather interior sounds good. Should be able to get one from some where.
