Re: Club Member Discount with XPart

Has anybody been able to access and use the discount recently? I got a reply off XPart after emailing them a couple of weeks after submitting the online form (which had not generated a response!), but they would not confirm any prices, instead saying that it was up to the retailer to quote me a pric...

Re: Hi I’m new and from Devon!

:welcome It is great to have you on board and you will find a few more Concerto owners on here too. It's amazing how many people out there don't even know that the Concerto exists and we actually displayed one on our stand at the NEC a few years ago so that visitors could see the similarities and di...

Re: R3 No.1 is alive and well at Gaydon

I definitely have a spare aerial, John. Just need to find a way of getting it to you or to Gaydon. Has the car ever been registered for road use? Or were the 3,000 miles clocked up on test tracks and/or trade plates?

Re: BL/Rover Show, Corby, 1st Aug 2021

Well, the weather must have put a lot of people off! A lot of Austin Cambridges (and their Morris, MG, Riley and Wolseley 'brothers') were there, but probably only 30 other cars: a mixture of ancient and modern. Two R8s (Nightfire 214 and gold 216) plus a rather nice Nightfire 620 SLi with an asking...

Re: 'L' Series 2.0 Diesel - Power Loss

If you leave it unplugged, the engine speed tops out at around 3000-3500 rpm.

Re: Newbie incoming!

Well, here's a 'yes' vote from me for the GTi badge: after all, Ford did an XR3i version of the Escort cabriolet and there's always the Golf GTi cabriolet too! Maybe Rover should have done a more sports-orientated version of the cabriolet. The Coupe bumpers etc really suit it. And the colour of your...

Re: 216 sd3 carb ?

The generic type of your carburettor is probably HIF44, however there are many variants to suit the whole range of engines that these carburettors were used on. You should be able to find the part number of your existing carburettor: it is stamped on a tag attached to one of the dashpot screws (that...

Re: BL/Rover Show, Corby, 1st Aug 2021

I will be there, Paul, but not in a Rover: one of our older 'residents' is having a run out on that weekend (doing the Festival of the Unexceptional too).

I haven't spoken to the organisers about a club stand, due to the lack of interest shown here on the forum. Is anybody on FB intending to go?

Re: The car locks itself with the engine off with me inside!

Alarm ECU (aka Pektron SCU) may be the problem, but have you checked the courtesy light switches on the doors yet?

For any issues with the Pektron, you should contact Paul at Technozen: https://www.technozen-electronics.co.uk/

Re: BL/Rover Show, Corby, 1st Aug 2021

If you would all like to post on here if you will be going, I will ask the organisers if we could have a club stand.

So, names down by the end of this week if possible, please!
