Another Rover 8ffr

Recommended Posts

Fixed a leak from the oil temp sender today, and another thats been hidden under the 40 amp generator for longer then I'v owned it (14 years now) found a loose bolt on the oil filler and hair line cracks along the plate too near the welds for the generator bracket so cleaned up, welded over and refitted with no more leaks (touch wood)

Took the FFR up to Leafers's at T'pit the other week, and and all was well until the drive home and seemed like the head gasket had failed :-( Once home and got the head off discovered the head and block had extreme damage :-( and with Goodwood a week away and a shout out on Facebook a new block and head were found and a ninja squad assembled to remove the old engine and build and fit the new one this weekend :-)

Been a while since I put anything up here, so lets have a little up date, Just before Easter I managed to get hold of the correct ATU for the C13 HF radio set, pretty much NOS! so got that fitted and tested etc. With the space freed up from removing the incorrect ATU I was able to fit the amplifier to use the loud speaker. Unfortunately when I tested it it just blew the fuses! no idea why until the next day it turned out after having it in storage for years I hadn't noticed it is a (rare?) 12 volt unit! Thankfully I had another, but more tatty looking one I had brought a while ago for the cables and other bits so hopefully will be able to test it when the new fuses arrive. Took advantage of the good weather today to go out and do a few lanes near home today too 🙂
