Re: Engine mounts - compatibility: Honda / Rover

Thank you yet again Dave. Your knowledge is invaluable. Pretty much having been through an accident last year (when I got side-swiped by someone who came through a red light) I've come to the realisation that 'everyday' parts are seemingly suddenly not so 'everyday' suddenly. Think you mentioned els...

Engine mounts - compatibility: Honda / Rover

This is a generic question which covers a few spares. Please transfer to a more suitable topic header. Specifically engine mounts for my Rover 827's (I've 2 cars). They're ok now but I'd like to 'future-proof' both of them. Not being in the UK I have to source from other than breakers etc. Part of m...

New Distributoe caps - 827's or Honda C27A engines

If they are what you want the purchase price is superb. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-Distributor-Cap-Legend-2-7-Sterling-827-Rover-827-TEC-made-in-Japan/224042604285?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p20...

Re: Contacts in New Zealand (or Oz)

Hi scooby - thanks for Pat's contact; I'm sure we've chatted just I had forgotten. Yes, a big challenge here when it comes to this model. Good thing though is now that I found a technician, I can have him run a diagnostic test to pick up other issues. I genuinely will keep this car on the road if at...

Contacts in New Zealand (or Oz)

Hi all 'guru' and SJG' please feel free to move this if it's not in an ideal thread. I'm hoping there could be some 827 (or 800) owners in New Zealand who still follow this group? It's a selfish need in the my car was hit by a red-light runner and took out my front bumper. As replacements are not av...

Re: Production tag.

Hi..'YMC..' is a code that I think usually refers to wiring looms or harnesses. I thought I recognised the sequence having had problems with my aribag system. If you use this link and type in the 'YMC' you'll see the series. Problem is Rover's changed part numbers for varying reasons, eg. if they ch...

Re: New to the group, so some pictures

Hi Dave as ever thanks for your advice. I've already accessed the Google drive..I'm going to call the mechanic this week. I'm increasingly of the view he doen't have the time to dedicate himself to this as opposed not know what he's doing. I wanted to bring the car back however he asked if he could ...

Re: New to the group, so some pictures

Hi Dave. I've only just seen this, so apologies for the delay. Essentially I'm in the hands of a good mechanic whose time is so burdened with customers that he can't dedicate himself to this car. He has the right test equipment etc. The last call to him told me he had pretty much replaced everything...
