Re: Rover P2 Reserve Fuel unit on tank

For tests like that I have a small hand held vacuum pump and gauge (If I remember correctly even a bicycle wheel pump can be used). See more here https://wp.me/pXLKy-sa and here https://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Vacuum-Pump

Re: Rover P2 Reserve Fuel unit on tank

In my experience the leaks are where the pipes join the main body, but it can be from the body itself. Remove the mesh, and immerse the whole unit in water , with the output sealed. compress air into the pipes, and watch for bubbles. also see more here: https://wp.me/pXLKy-1nF

Re: 1937 Fourteen Steering

The purpose of the wedge is to reduce the castor angle. In case the car wonders (quite common) turning it around will increase the castor angle and will result in a self-centering steering. See more here: https://wp.me/pXLKy-4iX

Re: 1937 Fourteen Steering

Often the reason for heavy steering is a wrong castor angle. Read more here http://www.rover-forum.thersr.co.uk/vie ... =17&t=5147

Re: What oil for the chassis lubricant

What you need is a 80-90 gear oil. Note that up-to-date gear oil of grade GL-5 contains an additive which attacks "yellow metals" and therefor not suitable for the lubrication system. Use oil of grade GL-4 or less.

Re: Freewheel lubrication (filling and draining) - 1936 Rover 12

Thank you, Tony, for your nice words. My visit to you was a pure Joy, and your work had been inspiration to me. Have you seen my impressions? and the video of that drive? https://wp.me/pXLKy-2Xp
P.S. I always use the freewheel and enjoy turning the knob to 'fix' when necessary!
