Re: Fastback's cars.

Congrats on the pass Mark and also on reaching the magic 100k miles! :wink: :D

Like Henrik said, soundproofing transforms the car into what it should have been when it was new

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

This is the most relevant pic from the second link : https://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/IMG_03511.jpg Are you using Avast or Norton Anti-Virus by any chance? I don't get any cookie warnings when i open it. Looking at the pic though, the wood is slightly longer and the door ...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Rover didn't change the door cards Henrik - Sterling did! In the USA, Rover didn't exist after 1986 so all the Mk1s sold there were Sterling 825 or 827 models. The flagship of the range was the 827 SLi which in effect was the equivalent of our Sterling model but they also did a Sterling 827 Oxford E...

Re: How many were made?

Something in the back of my mind says there were only 44 Mk2 V6 827 cars made for the UK Henrik, that would help give you an idea of how rare the 2.7 manual is. For the exact answer, it will have to be Dollysprint Dave though. :wink: :D Wrong model Dave. You're thinking of the 2.7 manual Coupe (lik...

Cheers. Funnily enough it is still working at the moment. I'd have thought it would have leaked out by now. Might get them to check the leak again in case a false alarm. Will measure again in case.
Good ideas! :wink: :D

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Allegedly it's going to finally get warm here as well tomorrow. Good time for resticking loose dashboard tops! (Dash lift) I looked in my shed this evening to see if i could get the alternator(s) from the old filing cabinet they're lurking in on to find two Silver-Green Volvo 760 wings and a load of...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Good news you've done a work-around, where did you connect in to the system? As for the fuel ECUs, i have a faulty one in the shed (won't recognise the Crank Position Snensor) and have known of a few others that have died. My gut feeling is that the ECU is ok and it's the alternator, hopefully once ...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Hopefully you can make some progress on it now Henrik! Had a look at my charging problem today and it looks very much like the alternator, spificially the voltage regulator. It's a relatively new unit but out of guarantee - i say new but it was remanufactured aka reconditioned. As many others have f...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

However, and it's just a note for reference. Looking at this schematic, it doesn't look like in my car. The relays aren't positioned in that way... I noticed that earlier when searching for the headlamp changeover relay (Tall black relay) but didn't give it much thought as that relay was obvious. T...

Update in previous post...
If you're getting no power feed to the door Henrik, it's one of the two relays in the rleay block as shown in the diagram above or it's fuse J - unless you've accidentally dislodged a plug that plugs into the relay board.

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

The only common point to all 4 windows is fuse J in the underbonnet fusebox Henrik. Might pay to link that out and test them, also check the two window lift relays are sitting snugly in their sockets and maybe even pull them out, open them and check there's nothing untoward in them : https://i.posti...

Re: Thunderbird 2, The Green Machine & Turbo Coupe

Thanks Dave. The measurements don't seem to tie in so I'll double check mine later. Might have to see about refurbishment of the current one. I think you'll find they do tie in Scott - i made this mistake as well. You're measuring overall size - 500 x 350 total, correct? The size quoted in the list...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Fuses 2, 3, 9 and 10 are the window lift fuses, contrary to what i said above, the two window lift power relays are for front and back so that's one mystery solved! It appears there are more relays in the ddrivers door (and passenger door) below the speakers. One is the up relay, the other is the do...
