    I suppose a process can work well without it being a good system. I follow plenty of processes at work that I think are flawed but I know that if I comply with the requirements, no matter how much I...

    Have you considered the possibility that it's nothing to do with the fuel system at all? Your problems seem to be intermittent and so the engine starting/not starting when fuel pumps are changed...

    Having done a bit of 3D printing (there's a prototype clutch release bearing carrier rising out of the resin as we speak), I'd be tempted to buy a proper product for the application you referenced,...

    The fuse box (right side of driver footwell) and flasher unit (above driver's right knee) are dry as a bone and no visual sign of previous water ingress.

    Looking at the wiring diagram again, so...

    Cheers. It's not the first time I've washed it this way but I'll see if I can find any damp components.
  11. All Indicator Light Permanently Illuminated

    Here's a strange one (to me at least):

    I backed my Sumo onto the drive for a quick hose pipe and sponge bath and then left it in the sun to dry. A couple of hours later I rolled it back into the...

    So you're after something like this (not saying this fits and the reviews suggest there are still problems) but in the UK?

    Judging by what I flushed out of my coolant system, I'd be surprised if a few fragments of thread will cause you any problems. However, you could coat it in grease before you chase it out; that...

    I was mistaken; if anyone else is thinking about this a stumbles across my post, the 2.0 does NOT have a flat-faced flywheel (the 2.2 does, but that doesn't have the Mazda spline).

    I now have...

    Is the IVA noise test at 3/4 the RPM of maximum power? If so, perhaps maximum power RPM should be 4/3 the quietest RPM (excluding zero RPM, of course).
  16. They initially claimed it was the OEM clutch, so...

    They initially claimed it was the OEM clutch, so it was easy to replace if it wore out, but the flywheel didn't need to be modified, so I asked them what it was as I couldn't find one that would be...

    As you say, I don't have a cover that matches the flywheel anyway, but I'm thinking of the Probe (and some Mazdas) clutch kit because it's just that, a kit.

    If the clutch wears out it's cheaper...

    Just to close this query down:

    Two ebay sellers were kind enough to measure the centre-to-centre distance between two of the locating pins on the Rover V8 SD1/2WD flywheels they are selling. They...

    I've just measured the distance between the centres of two locating dowels on the flywheel and their corresponding holes on the clutch cover.

    The flywheel looks like it has the dowels at a radius...

    I'm starting to think that the engine was in a Triumph Stag before I bought it. I know the lady I got it from was the widow of a Stag restorer and reading up on this topic it looks like the RV8 was a...

    There aren't any other holes in the flywheel so I dont believe it's been reworked. Plus, there are marks from it having a pressure plate previously that look very similar to photos of RV8 flywheels...

    Just a couple of mm. This is for a gearbox experiment that might not work, so no reason in spending more than necessary at this stage. They're second hand but not used.
  24. Rover V8 Clutch Cover to Flywheel Question

    I've just taken delivery of my second, second-hand clutch cover because I thought that I'd bought the wrong one when the first one didn't fit over the alignment pins in on my flywheel. This second...

    I had a problem with vacuum on the dizzy being in the way of the top hose on my RV8 - I just rotated the housing to move it out of the way and made a different connection Cylinder 1.
