Re: Rear Mudflaps

Will do! As far as i've always been aware, front and rears are the same, i've got at least one full set if not more so i'll double check to see if there's any difference. :wink: :D

Re: Petrol Filler Neck for 820Si Late Model WANTED

I'll have a look and see if i've got a spare, got a funny feeling i sold it though.

How bad is your existing one?

There are a few other options but they depend how original you want/need to keep things.

Re: Mercedade's '97 Vitesse Lux

It's only 12V, the bodys natural resistance is high enough to not pass current at that voltage level. Get to around 100V and you start feeling it, some people can get shocked at that level but not many, hence the use of 110V transformers and site tools for industrial sites. At 240V you'll definitely...

Re: Mercedade's '97 Vitesse Lux

If you plug it back in and operate it with your hand, does the fan run Adrian?

If sothen it's down to the control side of things - you've proved the relay operation with what you've done, doing what i'm suggesting will prove the electrical side so all that's left then is the control side.

Re: Steering Rack Needed

It came from an early Mk2 which if memory serves, uses the same rack as the Mk1c. All the racks for the Honda V6 engine tend to be fairly similar so you should be ok with the one you've got coming, unless it's for a non-Honda V6 powered 800. Are you renewing the rack mounting rubbers at the same time?

Re: Steering Rack Needed

I have a secondhand one James, it was working when removed and has been stored outside under cover since.

Any good to you?

Glad you're back on your feet (literally!) Adrian! Take it easy though and don't do too much, all too easy to cause permanent damage without realising it! Good news you've got some bolts too, still haven't found the ones i thought i had, only one tub left to investigate and that's bured at the back ...

Re: 1989 Rover 827 Vitesse automatic

I think the rest of the world is finally waking up to what we've alwys known - the 800 was a fantastic car and still is. All the nay-sayers said it would fall by the wayside in a pile of rust or blow its engine (like the KV6 :P ) in a cloud of steam but they're all wrong. In the UK, the 800 was the ...

Re: 1989 Rover 827 Vitesse automatic

Great pics there Marc! Nice to see some of the older stuff there too, especially the Buick wagon (does it have the famous 215ci/3528cc V8 in it?) and the Opel Kapitan.

Were there any other 800s there or just yours?
