I know where there is a stash of NOS panels and mint bonnet boot lid, plus a couple engines but I am not sure what gearboxes are on the back

Yes it was the barn find and panels are mostly good just needs a fix up on the front passenger door.

Sounded like a good deal.  Seats just need recovering, or repadding as well?

Anyone know of any 105 octane fuel? P5 has a 10.5:1 ratio

Just use 95/98. 10:5:1 isnt that high compression ratio

Nice find. My buddy picked up an identical one from a barn on the coast. One owner only 80k on the clock, reg on hold. Looked mint, but beware found a lot of surprise hiding rust when stripping it down. All done and painted now, should be on the road in a few months.

Hey anyone know the points gap on a old rover v8? 

Thanks

with the inboard brake setup

i know that on jags that the whole rear subframe needs to be removed.

but you just cut a hole in the floorboard and the job is 10x quicker

this could be a very good idea on the rover

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
