Re: My Rover 827 Sterling Option Pack 1989

Great pictures and narration there Lodein!

I was going to say something silly - it all looks very French!

Of course it would seeing as that's where you are! :wink: :D

I remember those key rings on my Dad’s Rovers whilst he worked at Trident Garages. I suggest it is original.
It looks too nice to have been in and out of someones pockets, chucked on the table/desk/bar etc for 30+ years Simon - like i said i might be wrong and it is original, who knows for sure?

Re: Your's Rover 800 key ring

Forgot to mention, i don't have a key fob/key ring on my car keys, i have 3 basic key rings with a clip that goes on my belt loop on the main one which also has my house keys then a joiner on that key ring a bit like the "Hozelock" garden hose joiners (but much smaller) that i can lock one of the ot...

Re: Your's Rover 800 key ring

That leather doesn't look 33 years old! Looks like a copy of some of the original Rover key fobs, i might be wrong and it is original but i'd be very surprised! As for the remote fob, the range isn't that great to start with (3m tops really) and new batteries always help, as would pulling the fob ap...

Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

More excellent work Jim! Are you using the resistor across the isolator terminals to provide memory feeds? If so i'd suggest fitting a fuse in series with it, just a small one of about 10-15A so if anything goes wrong you have that extra bit of protection.

Re: Thunderbird 2, The Green Machine & Turbo Coupe

I could Scott but i'd be lying! From memory (it's a long time since i played with a T-Series!) the downpipes have to come off, bellhousing slackened but not removed, engine mounts loosened then drain the sump and undo the bolts that secure it. Lift the engine a little to enable you to wriggle the su...

Re: AUTO JOURNAL 15-04-1987 - The war of the 6 Cylinders

The new B280E engine arrived in 1986/7 and i can't imagine Volvo producing two separate engines for different markets with the same emissions requirements etc. Also looking at the car in the photos, it's pre-facelift so would have had the B28E, just very surprised Volvo didn't step up to the mark an...

Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

Thought it would be along those lines JIm, thanks! The do look more substantial than the original mounts but then the original mounts weren't designed for hammering round Castle Coombe, Thruxton, Brands Hatch or wherever you take it. :wink: :D

Re: 1994 BRG Vitesse Fastback

More excellent work there Jim! A little confused about the seat mounts, they look very similar to the OE seat mounts or am i missing something?

Re: AUTO JOURNAL 15-04-1987 - The war of the 6 Cylinders

Very interesting that! Or at least the bits i understood! A bit surprised Volvo didn't supply the later B280E powered 760GLE rather than the B28E, it would have faired better on performance and economy. Also surprised they didn't get all manuals or all automatics, would have made for a fairer compar...

Re: Drop link

I'll keep you posted on the progress then Adrian! I'm also looking at an experimental version losing the outer shell of the bush itself - the reason for this is the crush tube is 15mm OD, the ID of the outer shell is 20mm and an OD of 24mm so the rubber is only 2.5mm thick between the crush tube and...

Re: Front brake hoses

They have all 4 hoses in stock Adrian, it's highly probable the webmaster mixed the photos up!
The part numbers seem to make sense as well, i'd suggest ordering a pair and comparing them, if they send the wrong animals then it's down to them to sort out at their cost. :wink: :D
