Re: Rover 12 steering

Yes, that's the petrol reserve. There are a lot of steering joints in the system, with a great deal of scope for lost motion that shows up as play. As Luli says, Steering Services may be able to help rebuild the box.

Re: Smoking rebuild engine

Hi Stef, In addition, were the liners honed so the rings could bed in, before fitting the new pistons? It does sound as though the rings could need further investigation but as you say, compression is fine. Have you considered that the oil may be reaching the combustion chambers from the top (down t...

Re: P2 brake balance assembly

Thanks Luli and Mike Mike: is it mainly the pin which wears or the fork or both equally? There is quite a lot of movement in the joints but not necessarily affecting the operational direction. And do you know the thread details etc for replacment forks? The parts book seems to say 5/16" for the for...

Re: P2 brake balance assembly

Its also a good idea to strip the expanders and see how much lost movement is due to wear in the eye of the brake rod and the dowel that locates the rod to the expander piston. The dowels are a standard engineering spare.

Re: Freewheel cable etc

I too have experienced cutting out at roundabouts in the Kitcher when in Freewheel and it seems to be down to the idle speed. Its usually easy enough to dip the clutch and press the starter to continue almost seamlessly

Re: New Rover 12 owner

Hello John, Welcome to the forum. It does sound as though the fan bearings may be in need of replacement, a relatively easy task as described in the RSR's workshop manual (available along with the parts list from the RSR, see the website). I should check the gearbox oil level, but I'm not sure what ...

Re: Rover 12 fuel pump

Hello Len, unfortunately it is proving risky and difficult to move your posts and the replies. I am still looking at a way of doing it.

Re: 1934 Rover 12

Len, it is possible to gently tap on the rim of the lid and remove it. The gauze inside can then be replaced. I got a strip from a local show, the stall was selling tractor spares. The top can be modified by making a bracket with a captive nut to fasten inside the air cleaner body. Opening out the r...
