Re: My Rover 827 Sterling Option Pack 1989

I took my Rover for a ride, and pulled over to get some gas. My neighbor at the pump leaves her door open and a gust of wind sends her on my Rover :cry: https://i.postimg.cc/30wdXb1s/20210503-185243.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/mtJt9jHn/20210503-185253.jpg It's not much and it's going to be done again,...

Re: Vitesse Gearbox

Pushing this somewhat. Still looking for a PG1 from an 820 vitesse. Needs shipping to the last Soviet state; Sweden.

Re: As if I don’t have too much to do...?

Thanks Dave. It was like i thought then. Great having it confirmed! I do have that diagram as it came with the dyno but as you might figures out I know more of history and geography than electrics! :shock: :oops: :lol:

Re: As if I don’t have too much to do...?

Thanks Dave, I might ask for your advice as I know your skills. But already there you have a problem. I don’t have a warning light. :lol: That said in my switch box on the dash there is a warning light so it could be used. The light should be 12v 0.2A or 2.2watts if I remember it correctly. The cut ...

Re: As if I don’t have too much to do...?

There has been a lot more to this upgrade than met they eye at first Henrik! :wink: :D Well yes, but it is welcome. I knew there would be some difficulties plus extra work involved and that's why it's been on hold. This is mostly only straight forward mechanical work and I feel comfortable there, i...

Re: 1989 Rover 827 Vitesse automatic

Very very nice as always! I agree with Mark just above here, my Vitesse is too far gone to ever get there ín the state yours is Marc, but it's great to see how it should be!

Re: As if I don’t have too much to do...?

Thanks guys! I did some reading last night and apparently there have been problems with the new gears. So some more fiddling to get the dynamator gear out (dynamo-distributor) but it came out fairly easy. Old original gear in place. https://i.postimg.cc/FfjvZHkt/C92-DF920-6511-4236-B3-B6-27-B29-E470...

Re: As if I don’t have too much to do...?

It went surprisingly easy to swap the dynamo. Now I just need to figure out the wiring diagram and transfer it into my electrical system. Shouldn’t be a problem! It looks like it’s going to be an Austin summer after all! https://i.postimg.cc/hJsgGx24/06-ACC3-AC-69-AB-4276-A1-B0-308-F0-D25-DF42.jpg h...

Re: As if I don’t have too much to do...?

The old drain plug for the radiator was totally deteriorated so in a way it’s really good i did this now. The plug actually fell out when We touched it so it would have resulted in a very messy garage floor! The plug wasn’t original and the replacement isn’t either but I like building stuff out of j...

Re: As if I don’t have too much to do...?

A bit more free and system and rad flushed. Next step getting the dynamo housing off. But as everything is easy accessible now it should be straight forward. Some cleaning up and a stroke or two with a brush of paint might happen while at it. Also I need to fix the hole in the nose cone. I had a lid...

Re: As if I don’t have too much to do...?

I was off to the studio tonight but Marcus drained the rad. It’s a very special type of antifreeze, as you can see. There is blue, green, red and this.

The colour is called ”neglect”.... :oops:

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

If of any interest to this topic, the owner's manual of a 1988 Sterling states: There are two ABS-related fuses in the engine compartment fusebox: Anti-lock brake system relay (15 A) and Anti-lock brake system modulator (15 A). There is also one ABS fuse in the passenger compartment fusebox (below ...

Re: As if I don’t have too much to do...?

Eureka! It runs! Quite happy really, it wasn’t started last year and with a fresh battery and some priming it ran to life. Running on three for Maybe 30-45s and then purring like a kitten. Impressive car that, it must be built by a true master! Next step is removing the rad to get to all of the sad ...

Re: Manalishis Mk 1a 827 Vitesse (manual)

Excellent Dave. I need to get those relays looked into later anyway so I’ll remember that. Who said the light doesn’t work as it should? :mrgreen: Actually We have the same law here but with cars older than 93-94 they tend to be very gentle with that rule. But I know for a fact my ABS has never work...
