  1. Out with the old, in with the even older 😂 going to run this engine as the cam in the other one is knackered due to running without oil pressure. Started this one up before removing it from donor, it sounds good and has oil pressure so can't really be any worse 😎
  2. So the gearbox turned out to be completely destroyed.. what to do? Found a rusted out donor in the neighbourhood and towed it home. The last couple of days has been spend taking it apart and saving what I need. Always sad to see a classic British icon being scrapped, but I hope that with this company it was laid to rest properly:
  3. Here you go page 13 and a bit onward
  4. Indeed I do! 👍 Well a refurbed unit from rimmerbros is 708£ add about a 100£ for shipping and another 100£ because I wont deliver one in return and thats what I'm willing to spend and the specialist
  5. My girlfriend was lovely enough to give me helping hand removing the gearbox today so we can drop it off at the specialist soon. Usually I would take the time to take it apart myself and learn how it all Works, however being a motorcycle mechanic this time of year equals hectic and long workdays:
  6. Would definitely be an upgrade but would actually rather have the bomb proof TorqueFlite 727 but in both cases modifying the car to suit would tale more time than I want to spend. And with the torquetube design space is Limited
  7. Haha yeah would be awesome! Anyways my great fear is that it turns the box cant really be made stronger and that it is a weakness (the internet kinda tells med it is) because then I'm not sure I wan't to fit the 4,6 😟 wouldnt really enjoy it with a gearbox made og glass 😮
  8. Yes I would love a manual, however with All the bits I'll need to convert the only real way would be to find a donor car and swap Everything over. And this will be no cheap or easy task. And I wouldnt know the condition of the donor box anyway 😟 But we have this bloke who specializes in auto boxes and especially for dragracing purposes. I'm going to ask him if there's anything that cam be done to beef it up whilst he repairs it
  9. Yes in manual form they are but sadly this is an auto, a BW 65 to be exact
  10. Soo.. Everything was going fine and I was enjoying cruising the SD1 whilst sorting out some odds and ends 👍 well that was till today where, presumeably the "forward clutch" let go in the gearbox with a "ping" in a roundabout ☹️ Guess I'm taking the gearbox out then!
  11. Maybe you dont want the servo effect on a hydraulic setup because it is not needed and it might even make the brakes drag a bit as they wont want to let go right away when you release the pressure
  12. Haha yeah you are quite right, our country is littered with those things! 😁 Having grown up with them though I'm completely used to them, never notice them really.. Only when I'm in countries that don't have them everywhere! 😂 Thanks Mo, I'm doing my best to show the pride that I'm sure at least one person has put into this car during the gloomey days og BL
  13. Thanks Bowie 👍My girlfriend and I just bought an old caravan, and I used the Rover to power an air compressor. And og course I couldnt resist snapping a picture 😁
  14. Finally got it on the road! Going to enjoy the 3,5 for now as I sort out the million issues that comes when you put one og BL's finest engineering back on the road after several years og neglect. And yes I've already had the obligatory electrical fire while driving 😂
  15. Yeah I can't wait to get my first drive in one! Thats what I usually do when I swap cams etc so that the engine doesn't run dry for any amount of time. However in this case the pump is so worn I had to disassemble it and fill it with grease for it to be able to suck in oil. It does however make oil pressure quite rapidly, even after a couple of weeks standstill now though
