H Reg 820 si 44k - project

Its a 1990 820si Rover Saloon in Green.

Only 44k from new and been sitting in a garage for the last few years.


The challenges;

The cam carrier for the exhaust cam is in two pieces. Engineering places say it cant be welded so will need to be replaced. This means probably an M Series head for the car. There is a recon one on Ebay for £500.
Which in turn means the exhaust cam will need to be machined to the new cam carrier and head.
The right rear caliper was sticking a bit and is rather crispy. I suspect it might need replacing.
It has an exhaust blow
Tyres on it were made in Yugoslavia - I think you can guess how old they are
It was overfueling before I started work on it.
Coolant was quite dilute so was rust in the cooling system. It has all been flushed through including the radiator
No MOT obviously.

The good bits;

Low mileage giffer owned - PO had it from a year old.
Funky numberplate
Interior is absolutely mint and very velourious
Coolant header isnt cracked!
Comes with a new exhaust cam and oil seals to go in the new head
Been kept in a garage so rust is pretty much limited to surface rust
Everything works - including the electric sunroof
Can come with newer tyres for the new owner to fit
It has been looked after and has a detailed list of the work completed on it.
it was serviced with air filter and plugs before starting work
Radiator and cooling system flushed
new water pump, CT sensor and thermostat fittted
new battery fitted
Comes with a heap of parts including timing belt tensioner, bleed nipples and some other bits and pieces.

It doesnt run at the moment with no head on it so will need trailering away.

Priced at £150 to try and recoup some of the money and a bit less than scrap offering.


Located in Accrington.

Would that someone be James by any chance? As in Nitr0_9 above?
Cheers,

No a friend of mine who has fallen in love with it. He has got storage space so can stick it out the way until he either finds the bits or the money to get a new head.
