P2 Headlamp flasher

I am attempting the replace the ancient wiring in my '39 14 DHC steering column etc and update the related circuits. The pass lamp will be switchable separately but only with dipped headlights on. I have a flasher of sorts already but want to incorporate a discreet relay which will disconnect the di...

Re: North American Dollar Area (NADA) references

The RSR is for ALL rovers so its always worth trying them with your article. By the way the Lucas catalogue I have lists Rover 60,75 and 90 lights etc as NADA in 1954. Also the Landrover in 1951-54 (still listed as a Rover so it appears in the extract I have) but not the Station Wagon of 1951 for wh...

Re: North American Dollar Area (NADA) references

Hi Dixon
The 1960ish partial extract is marked Catalogue 400E and the other 1954ish one is marked Catalogue 400D on just one or 2 pages. Nothing like a helpful reference on the front or back pages! I could send copies of extract pages if you send me an email address.

Re: North American Dollar Area (NADA) references

Hi Dixon
Actually just found another (incomplete) Lucas Equipment and Parts catalogue in which Rover lamps -head,number plate, side and stop tail- for 1951-54 '60' '75' '90' models for 'export' are listed as NADA. Again this catalogue has no date showing but appears to go up to 1954
Good luck

Re: North American Dollar Area (NADA) references

I just had a look at the only Lucas lamp catalogue I have which appears to be about 1960 or shortly thereafter and that only seems to refer to NADA against Rover cars (last 4 pages: Side Lamps and Front flasher lamps) Sorry cant offer anything else

Re: Rover P2 Reserve Fuel unit on tank

Thanks Luli for your reply. I am always suspicious of possible leaks where the dip pipes are connected but in this case I had resealed the threads when I swapped them over, back to their rightful positions as I believe it. And furthermore when I am pumping air into the main dip pipe and I can feel a...

Rover P2 Reserve Fuel unit on tank

Has anyone any experience of refurbishing these units? I am trying to make mine work properly but struggled to get my head round what is a simple unit. In operation I could hear the solenoid clunk when I switched to reserve but it didn't seem to draw any fuel. I now have it apart to try and understa...

Re: 1947 Rover 12 shocks

Which type of shockers are they? My 1947 Instruction Book for all models shows both Luvax-Girling units for 10 and 12 models and Armstrong units as being fitted to 14 and 16 models. Both types are shown with straight links in the component illustrations but there appears to be a curved upper link sh...

Re: P2 footwell vents

Many thanks for that Luli. I got the springs from Mike Couldry but should have asked him about the gasket too
