Re: Rover 825 Sterling Diesel Coupe

Thanks Dave - not by choice I assure you! the 514244 lockhead kit fits a number of vehicles and cross references to lots of other manufacturers, but I couldn't seem to find the diameter (although it might be 22.2mm) - the 825 dieselseal needs to be 19mm. There must be another slave cylinder with the...

Re: Joining the new club.

Hi Stevee and Tom. Glad you got the membership issues sorted Tom.

The good news is the packs are ready and I bel...

Re: 825 Fastback Towbar

Will fit a coupe too - they all share the same floorpan. You can use a mark 1 towbar on a mark II but you do have to drill one hole and the upper rear bolts dont fit, but otherwise useable. The sockets on a genuine towbar have a Rover logo on them. If its a genuine towbar and you want to put the bum...
