    I found you had to be careful with the reaction speed. If it goes too quick it doesn’t have take the time to see if it’s adjustments works and then chases about as it over adjusts / under adjusts.

    HP22 auto gear box loom

    Did the classic have a speed transducer ? My auto has reversing light and ignition inhibitor on a plug on the side of the gearbox and that’s it. Diff lock is off the Transfer case.

    V8 exhaust manifold bolt torque

    I attacked mine with sandpaper stick to a flat plate so it’s not too bad but maybe I’ll take some more off just to be sure.

    Heat shield for starter motor v8

    Is that the same as this that I have fitted ? if so it’s not fully working for me. In traffic the solenoid overheats and won’t engage. Think I need something on the side perhapp.

    V8 exhaust manifold bolt torque

    My manifold is slightly uneven so I might strip things before it seals.
  11. The internet suggested 16 lb/ft for rover v8 exhaust manifold bolts. I’m not sure my torque wrench goes that low. Does that matter too much ?
  12. I need a heat shield for the starter motor so I can restart the car when it’s hot. I have the 4.2 v8 and front pipes. Will this fit well enough ? https://www.brit-car.co.uk/product.php/86959/2623/heatshield_starter_motor_range_rover_classic

    https://www.lrdirect.com/ETC4524-Gasket-Exhaust-Manifold-To-Pipe-Ef/ Thanks does seem an element of mark up for ones from Land Rover though. I was having trouble on the part number but seems I found one that works now.
  14. I have a 4.2 LSE engine in my 90 and I need this exhaust gasket https://www.roverparts.com/Parts/ETC4524K2 and this exhasut gasket https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LAND-RANGE-ROVER-V8-EXHAUST-MANIFOLD-GASKET-SET-3-5-3-9-4-0-4-2-4-6L-/201772368133 Where is a good place to get quality ones from please ?
