Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Yes Dave, it really looks great. Thanks for letting me have it. :)

Finally got this piece of old junk out too. Hopefully it will sort my clutch. It isn’t beautiful behind the rubber seal so it looks promising.

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

The lines going in and out are incorrect.
I’m not pleased with the communication with Rock Auto in any way.

I’m not happy. Clutch master cylinder isn’t right.

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Think of it as therapeutic Henrik! :P That's what i've been telling myself while doing a few things on the Volvo lately anyway! :lol: I might have a spare passenger door handle (which would be your drivers door), i'll have a look. If there's a key-barrel in it, i don't think i'll have the key thoug...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

I spent an hour to remove the handle today on the spare drivers door. Fiddling with 30 year old corroded junk is really something I truly dislike! Obviously one of the three cables operating the central lock snapped but finally got the sucker out. The lock barrel itself was seized in the socket and ...

Re: Locks with key. Mk1 fastback

But the key is so ugly! :cry: Two ways of looking at that Henrik - you want to lock your car with it or take it to dinner? :wink: :P :lol: Until you find the correct blank, you'll have to put up with the "Ugly Sister" of keys i think - function over form. :wink: :D :lol: :oops: Well the Looker-key ...

Re: Locks with key. Mk1 fastback

A key blank but not genuine : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Errebi-Uncut-Blank-Key-Range-Rover-Rover-111-114-820-825-827/283726838999 Looks more like the 800 series keys than the one with the locks but that lock listing has ended. I saw a recent listing by Sterlingfixer on ebay for a distributor cap f...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

True Dave, and I hope it will be as reliable as my Coupe has been. Obviously the long storage with zero TLC has given some ill effects, possible clutch failure, heater controls not working, AC not working but it runs very smoothly with no tappetnoise for instance. Left front cv joint is really bad b...

Locks with key. Mk1 fastback

I’m looking for locks for doors and boot/fastback version for the mk1. Anything out there? Rimmers can’t find them for the left door and getting a lock for the right door (in stock) isn’t really what I need... So if I could wish, all locks from the same car. Second best would be right door lock (my ...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

This car is really growing on me. It’s really quick and responsive with loads of power from 2k rpm. It’s not as quick as the T16 Vitesse on 13psi of boost but for a car of the eighties it’s extremely potent! The other day the clutch stayed on the floor but worked when lifted. This happened a few mor...
