My 1980 RRC 2door was already modded with a D1 drivetrain (300tdi manual) when I got it, but I am finding the clutch tough to manage for more than a few miles and I am missing the auto and cruise of the P38 (which is still SORN'ed for the pandemic). I have been watching the BMW conversions with interest and was thinking that the 3.0i M54 engine and auto box would be an easy enough fit with the groundwork that has now been done on these conversions. Now that my mileage is much reduced I would prefer the refinement of a petrol engine anyway. (yes I know, but somehow I just never bonded with V8'
Having difficulty opening the top tailgate on a 1992 RRC (JA VIN) as the latches appear to have seized / rusted as the release button moves but doesn't press in very far. Do the actuating rods to either side of the lock mechanism push / pull or do they rotate around their axis to operate the latches? Trying not to damage the frame as it is aluminium, so trying to work out what I can do from inside the boot. Thanks
