Vitesse Gearbox

I just managed to scrap my box as I tried to fix the bearings, anyone have a box out there? Pre Torsen is ok as my car is a 180bhp vitesse.

Yup I've got all the bearings and seals plus some other stuff. I just hope I remember how it was before I stripped it! :lol:

Re: Manalishis 820 Vitesse Coupe

Holy thread revival! Gearbox back on the bench to get put together again and hopefully I’ll get some spare time to give the coupe a good clean and some polish during the holidays. Plan is a thorough machine polish and maybe getting the chrome trim strips fixed. I need this car working in 2021! 2020 ...

Re: My Rover 827 Sterling Option Pack 1989

As I said in this post : http://rover800.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=14838&p=156340#p156340 The journalist like the handling of the manual gearbox of the Rover 825. This is for me a bad point on my car, and I don't know if it is my car who has a problem (It is old) or if it comes from me (and I...

Re: The other Lodein's cars

Oh I love the Daimlers, much more than the Jags really. I too have a lost dream of having an XJ-S but I would prefer the later 4.0 with the new shape quarter lights, rear windows. But I ended up with an 800 coupe instead! :D

Re: The other Lodein's cars

I do agree with Dave and Simon. The Pug Coup is really nice! It actually feels a bit like the 800 coupe, a different car from the regular saloon or estate/fastback.

Re: My Rover 827 Sterling Option Pack 1989

Still not many scratches for such an old car. Overall it's in a very good condition. My black Mk1 Vitesse is a rolling restoration, one thing at the time but mechanically and when it comes to body work. Fortunately mine is very undented and straight so that is good. I think yours is very nice Lodein...

Excellent on the satin black trims. It’s all in the details! :)
You beat me to it Henrik, i was going to say similar!

Had planned to do mine over this summer but it didn't happen!
Haha Dave, if you knew how much I had planned for the Summer! But hey, It’s only 6months left until the next! :D

Re: My Rover 827 Sterling Option Pack 1989

That is a very beautiful car! Congratulations! And a manual non cat 827, those are rare! I have one myself (vitesse) but no where near as nice as yours.
