  1. So no Celeste? I'm guessing the fact you did not fit too well in mine put you off
  2. next update, had to rebuild the calipers again grrrrr damn no longer stocked piston seals, any who rebuilt now and also ordered a kit for the front 3 pot calipers. still got my eye out for a transmition as i need to fix the release bearing anyway so may as well use it as an excuse to upgrade. hopefully next update will be quicker than this one.
  3. Been a couple of days but calipers are rebuilt and got some new lines too so tonight will be the fun job of refitting, bleading and testing. Fingers crossed they will adjust up this time.
  4. tbh its not a huge issue and the rear axle is under the fuel tank on a rover, any way think its like 3 bolts to drop diff on the rover due to the strange DeDion set up. but may look into an access patch if i can line it up
  5. another day another post, so its been 1 week since i collected the car. tonight we tackled the rear calipers, easy way of getting them out is to drop the diff, damn inboard disks. anyway striped them both down and found they where at the limit of adjustment and both pistons where weeping so order new o rings and pads tomorrow. also found i need a new front to rear line and a new set of rubber lines all around... 45 years takes its toll
  6. Got carb and manifold last night, not sure when I'll fit it yet though. Tryed a test drive last night and found the rear calipers are not adjusting up. So yay more rebuild kits
  7. Fixed miss fire and now she is growing at my nabors time for the cosmetic and clean up. Oh and a carb on a duel plane manifold.
  8. Well finaly got it to fire up. Still running points and the stock carbs. Sounds like shit but that may have something to do with the single cherry bomb in the exhaust and lack of a cylinder
  9. day 3 update just ordered an electronic ignition kit, points are shot and kit should be next day to here. suspect faulty/ blocked carbs so hunting down a aftermarket kit, was sort of planning this from the start as my dad has shown interest in the carbs for his jag... evening entertainment tonight is looking through trade me for an ignition switch to replace the botch job i currently have n the dash and some other interior goodys
  10. Thanks mate
  11. Hey anyone know the points gap on a old rover v8? Thanks
  12. Well had a go at the car last night and re wired the start position on the switch can't get it to fire up but will test for spark tonight. Anyone know the points gap on this?
  13. Anyone know of any 105 octane fuel? P5 has a 10.5:1 ratio
  14. Is there a cut off date for this?
  15. Haven't realy look at inside was dark last night think just covering or find some to fit in
