Gordon's alive! Welcome aboard Flash, good to hear from Italy and the home of the VM engine!

Don't worry, your English is much better than my Italiano! :D

Adventure with proportional valve, must go buy special tool for security bolts, who had idea to use security bolts in a valve of Rover 800? Anywhay after i used normal bolts. I used old o-ring and red liquid gasket for hight temp (for water pump) maybe is not right but i had only it ))) Inside was cleaned, no rusty, stop leak but no time for take out air inside line.... but car brake with air inside line too , miracle 800 )))

Some very good work there, Flash.

It's great to see some proper hard work going into keeping the 800 going in foreign lands. How is it finding spares in Italy?

Like the idea of cameras front and rear with the screen built into the sun visor! Don't know if you can get these in Italy but we can get rear-view mirrors that change to monitor screens when the camera is active :

Same people do another version that can show 4 cameras at the same time but it's expensive.
