Re: P2 tourer at Brightwells

Now with fresh SAE30 and a clean strainer I have done about 20 miles.Initially not willing to run on all four, but it cleared and is going pretty well. Tyres are very hard and white lines on the road are quite scary! This was the same on the other tourer. New tyres transformed it. Brakes are fine, c...

Re: P2 tourer at Brightwells

Quick update
Flushed the fuel system with fresh fuel and, as it is taxed & insured now, I took it round the block. Starts,stops & steers. All good news. I'll take it for a run over the weekend😆

Re: P2 tourer AJV14 from Brightwells March 2024

Now I have the car (and the keys - don't ask). It appears very original...no sign of previous restoration., just lots of use and (I hope) regular maintenance.. Many small differences to my other car (no 110). For example in the boot area there is a Rexine fabric cover (not quite sure what it covers,...

Re: P2 tourer at Brightwells

I won’t be reupholstering, but the carpets are probably finest sitting room,so do need replacing! The driver door card looks as it has kept a family of mice well fed, so will need attention,it looks like a green Rexine, I have seen Rexine remanufactured when I was doing an early Austin Seven,but the...

Re: P2 tourer at Brightwells

That’s the plan! :D
It appears to be pretty unmolested, not rebuilt. Some useful spares, some new, but a few potential boat anchors!
I will post an update when I have had a good look, and..I hope… get it running.

Re: Rover 14 - 1935 - spark plugs - standard or extended reach?

That is a very impressive result...I see that these plugs are specified for modern cars such as the Toyota Prius...so designed for modern fuels. Here in UK most "classics" I think will use 5% ethanol (98 or so Octane) whereas the Prius etc will be using 10% ethanol. I have no idea how that may affec...

P2 Workshop manual 1987

In have a fifth issue P2 workshop manual in a green spring binder. It came with my car, but appears unused! I have invested in the latest version as this one does not yet include sections B,D,N,P,R. It is an interesting & mostly useful bit of RSR history. Quite heavy (about 1300g) Would any one like...

Re: Recent travels

Earth strap fitted. All now working as it should.
Drove the car to North Shropshire on Thursday (nice sunny day). Did not use the motorway, but up the A 51 etc. Busy road, but traffic kept up with me ☺☺. No problems, the new (2022) radiator almost over cools the engine in winter (60-70C) !
