Re: Still after a few MK1 parts....

I think I might have an auto console cover. The flat bit that the gear selector goes through.

I'm out of the UK until mid-September, but I can check when I get back if that helps.

I think it's Mk1 as I recall that it was too big for Mk2....

Cheers,
Mike.

Forum new registration questions

As I'm sure you know, new users to the forum have to answer a question before they can register. There were 2 questions that were fairly simple to answer for those who know 'our' cars. However, some spam 'bots' seem to have discovered the correct answers as in the last week or so I've had nearly 600...

Re: Help with rear end noise

It certainly sounds like the diff to me, especially as it changes when you take your foot off the throttle.

Have you checked the oil level? If it gets low the crown wheel and pinion can 'pick-up' and get damaged. Sadly, I have done that a 'few' times in the past!

Cheers,
Mike.

Re: J Type wiring

Although the 'J' type solenoid only draws a static current of 2A or so, the pull-in current is much higher. I reckon this will, over time, damage the gearlever switch contacts as they are pretty small. I think that fitting a relay as in the 'A' type over comes this problem. Mind you, if you fit a be...

Re: WANTED - rocker assembly and pushrods

The engine number is MG2864HEBW which I think means it came from an automatic PI. That 4 digit number (2864) would suggest an early PI engine to me. Most of the engine numbers I've seen have 5 digits. (Except mine which is something like MG17...) As far as I know, the Mk2 rocker assembly is consist...

Re: M O T exemtion.

Mk1's were never fitted with PAS; it was an option on early Mk2's and then standard on some later models such the S. That said, it is is not a substantial change' and is perfectly acceptable modification falling within the exemption for 40+ year old cars. My money would be on the tester not even kn...

Re: 2500 TC has the wrong head ?

Just thinking ahead perhaps. I believe the 2000 and 2500 have the same rods and block so is it possible to insert a 2500 crankshaft in a 2000 ? And pistons. Assuming the rods are the same, the gudgeon pin hole on a 2.5 piston is closer to the crown than on a 2000. By about half the extra crank thro...
