Re: Speed 14 steering, brakes & performance

Luli, thanks for that comparison - confirms my suspicions about harmonic bumpers. My old car is now with the friend I bought it from in the first place. So maybe I should ask him for a test-drive - it might prove that actually I'm the problem!

Re: Speed 14 steering, brakes & performance

Interesting observation from David2021 regarding harmonic bumpers. My 12hp six-light is fitted with the non-stabilising type of bumper specified as an alternative on 1947 models. I've never felt as "secure" driving it as I did with another P2 I had some years ago. That was a 1947 4-light - virtually...

Re: 1934 Rover 12 door handles

Hi Len & Rob The usual arrangement for locking on most makes up to around 1960, so including P4s, was to have the driver's door locked by a key from outside and the other doors locked from the inside by pushing the handle in the reverse direction to opening. As Rob says the key locks the handle to p...

Re: gearbox not selecting reverse

Hi Roy
It couldn't be the freewheel could it? It may be worth checking it's locked - if you haven't already.

Re: 1935 Rover 12

Funny you should mention bronze nuts, Tony - as you say they're a bit scarce these days, but...I was having an idle browse on ebay earlier and came across a guy selling bronze nuts. He had various sizes but all RH thread so no good for RHD Rovers. Asking price was £100 each. Len, I had my post-war 1...

Len
Yes the large bolt secures the motor to the aluminium housing. I think you'll need to remove the motor and housing as one item by undoing the 3 nuts which attach to the flywheel housing, as the oil pressure relief gets in the way of removing just the motor.

Re: Rover 12 1934

PS - I think "Wilks Cars P1 and P2" is the more appropriate section.

Re: Rover 12 1934

Congratulations, Len - looks very tidy, do you have much to do? I noticed the website was having a funny turn recently - varoius devices I tried to log on with came up with different excuses. Just another of those gremlins I suppose. As to parts suppliers - Mike Couldry (Meteor Spares), Mike Evans (...

Re: New boy - if only!

Hello, Falkor I've been out in the P2 a couple of times since the restrictions were eased - traffic has certainly got a bit busier now, but yes the whole place has been spookily quiet lately. The clock is now spot on after 2 weeks a great improvement over gaining 1 minute per day. I'm sure this soun...
