Re: Locks with key. Mk1 fastback

But the key is so ugly! :cry: Two ways of looking at that Henrik - you want to lock your car with it or take it to dinner? :wink: :P :lol: Until you find the correct blank, you'll have to put up with the "Ugly Sister" of keys i think - function over form. :wink: :D :lol: :oops: Well the Looker-key ...

Re: Locks with key. Mk1 fastback

A key blank but not genuine : https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Errebi-Uncut-Blank-Key-Range-Rover-Rover-111-114-820-825-827/283726838999 Looks more like the 800 series keys than the one with the locks but that lock listing has ended. I saw a recent listing by Sterlingfixer on ebay for a distributor cap f...

Re: Locks with key. Mk1 fastback

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

True Dave, and I hope it will be as reliable as my Coupe has been. Obviously the long storage with zero TLC has given some ill effects, possible clutch failure, heater controls not working, AC not working but it runs very smoothly with no tappetnoise for instance. Left front cv joint is really bad b...

Locks with key. Mk1 fastback

I’m looking for locks for doors and boot/fastback version for the mk1. Anything out there? Rimmers can’t find them for the left door and getting a lock for the right door (in stock) isn’t really what I need... So if I could wish, all locks from the same car. Second best would be right door lock (my ...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

This car is really growing on me. It’s really quick and responsive with loads of power from 2k rpm. It’s not as quick as the T16 Vitesse on 13psi of boost but for a car of the eighties it’s extremely potent! The other day the clutch stayed on the floor but worked when lifted. This happened a few mor...

Have you knowledge of an imminent flood and been building an ark? Either i'm being dense or i can't see what you've built? Just a very small porch or rather the rail for my mother in law Dave! All done in Corona distance. :/ So packed the car up with tools and some 2x4 and then some. 25 deg in the ...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Thanks for the link Dave, I'm definately using RockAuto again.

Actually I found the guy by recommendation in a facebook-group, he has worked as a Sterling dealer and has loads of stuff still, 9 cars included. Apparently the Sterling is pretty cool over there and has it's own little community.

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Good news on the timing belt Henrik - does it still go alright? They didn't use the wrong sort of coolant? Nice roof rack but not sure i'd ever use one, prefer to have a trailer. :wink: :D Yes, everything is excellent. It pulls very strong from 1800rpm and I’m actually amazed of the difference betw...
