Heres a nice 620 ti Turdblowa with a popped head gask! I would like to fix it up.http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1999-ROVER-620-TI-GREEN-SPARES-OR-REPAIR_W0QQitemZ110474459587

On Christmas eve this piece of sh*t decided to fully live up to my expectations of Rover ownership and blow its engine in a fairly spectacular fashion. Steam, bubbling in header tank, temp gauge went right into the red sector despite it being -10 degrees outside.

Some people have a real downer about Rovers. -10 and overheating? Sounds like the coolant might been past its best, frozen up and clogged up the system, not exactly a design flaw.

Like doing head gaskets? If so you're gonna LOVE this lot as they all need doing.

I BOUGHT IT AS THE USUAL HEAD GASKET FAILURE WITH MIXED OIL AND WATER. I REPLACED THE GASKET BUT DID NOT GET THE HEAD SKIMMED AND THE VALVES WEREN'T SEATING PROPERLY SO IT CAME OFF AGAIN AND I FOUND A READY SKIMMED HEAD AND FITTED THAT INSTEAD. WHILE TRYING WITH NO LUCK TO BLEED THE COOLING SYSTEM THE WATER PUMP STARTED TO POUR OUT WATER AND AT THAT POINT I GAVE UP. IT IS NOW SITTING BEHIND THE HOUSE WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO FINISH THE JOB.BY THE WAY I ALSO FITTED NEW BOLTS .

Fuggin wars what a nightmare, I almost want to take that on as a challenge!

Indeed. Sure, K series lumps eat gaskets more often than I eat Walkers crisps but T series lumps are pretty good.I do wonder sometimes how many people blame the engine for the HGF when infact the coolant hadn't been changed in around a decade.

Exactly. I've had a lot of K Series engined cars and have never had HGF. Because I look after them. Changing the coolant isn't rocket science, and the proper OAT stuff isn't dear either.

SHITTING NORA that CARINA is literally the cock AND balls!

 

I have never seen one with that 'face' before, it is mega-fugly like they hashed it together out of bits of telly fascias.

I have only seen the later 0MG MR_B spec, thus:

Is this even the same model?

That thing is about 2-3 miles from me, tops.If he's the chap who's got the K reg 1.8 in dark blue as well, he's a mega-dodgy driver who's still not got the hang of Marinas not having brakes.Not seen that one around.

Here's a stupendously TOSS way to advertise your vehicle:

GR2 work! Pic of a model, pretty much zero useful information regarding the car itself, apart from spurious claims to it's "finished" value.

 

Summary: MONG

MOAR useless marketing:
