Re: Fourteen resurrection!!

If you are taking the head off it would be worthwhile taking the timing chain cover off and making sure that the oil sprayer is clear, they have a habit of blocking up and if that happens there will be no lubrication to the timing chain.

Re: Roverfest wins award for best event

I'll certainly consider coming, not sure which car yet though as I can only drive one at a time!

Re: Solex 30 PAAI 2 Parts

I have the drain tube fitted to my 75 and I don't have the hunting problem. It is there to drain fuel from the manifold if it floods. Maybe it needs the tube fitting as the open end will be a lot lower than the manifold?

Re: Tourers 1920 -1923

Mike Evans, p2roverman, is probably your best place to start. I have a 1925 car but it is not a Clegg, it's the later model designed by Peter Poppe.

Re: New to Rover and forum

You could try getting hold of Mike Evans. He used to live in Wakefield and now lives just outside Leeds. He has a large amount of new and second-hand spares and great knowledge of these cars. He appears on the forum as p2roverman and his email address is p2roverman@uwclub.net

Re: Distributor Frozen on P3

Make sure the clamp is really loose, they can distort. If you want to remove it there is a small vertical bolt in a clamp plate to remove just below the clamp and another with a tab washer below that. Sorry, cannot give more detail or photos as I've not got my car here at the moment.

Re: 1927 rover 16/50

If this is Tim Catford's car, and I think it is, it is a genuine Rover 16/50 with bodywork built by Smith & Waddington in Australia. As far as we know most, if not all, the cars were shipped to Australia as rolling chassis to have the bodywork built locally due to high import taxes on complete cars....

Re: 1925 14/45 or 16/50 water pump and fan hub strip down.

Hi Alan, sorry for the delay in replying, I've not been on the forum for a while. I have hundreds of photos and I think I know of all the cars world-wide. Are you thinking of buying the ex-Tim Catford car?
