Re: Zenith Stromberg CD 175 Needle/Jet modifications

I had the same issue with 1.75" SU's. I had it rolling roaded at Wilshers Garage, Wimpole and it was a vast improvement.

I don't know if the old boy who did it still does it, and whether they can do Strombergs.

Re: Front crank oil seal.

I do know where your comming from , and for sure Landover are not going to endorse any crap quality part so there is some security in buying OEM parts. The seal from the gasket set may be a single lip seal, if you were to take the duff seal to the bearing supplier and ask for a double lip seal the ...

Re: Front crank oil seal.

If you can get the same part for less, then definitely get it, and indeed Rimmers are good for helping with that. But buying something that is 'same size, same material, so must be OK', is more risky. If you don't mind changing it a few times, then go for it. But for a job that is a pain in the arse...

Re: Rover V8 oil gallery detail

Perhaps it sets the depth of the core plug when it's inserted.

Re: stepper motor - alternatives

I would say that if the stepper works properly, there's nothing to be gained by changing it.

Re: rover v8 water pump whine

I've never heard one whine - doesn't sound good!
Worth being 100% sure it's not the belt or another pulley / idler bearing.

But water pumps are cheap enough. I get stuff from Rimmer Bros or Island 4x4. You can choose whether you want a genuine part or various flavours of pattern part.

Re: stepper motor - alternatives

You are going to have to explain your thinking a bit more. The stepper motor is controlled by the ECU to maintain idle speed. So if you do away with it, there will be no idle speed control at all!

Re: Using intermediate front cover??

Good question. If you are doing it the other way, the crank nose is too long and so you need a spacer to go over the outside of the crank to clamp the pulley to the crank bolt. If you go the other way, then the crank will be too short (by about 1/2 an inch I think), so you might need a longer crank ...

Re: 3.5 Engine rebuild

A remote filter is handy because you can pour oil down the hoses to fill the pump before trying to prime it.

Re: 3.5 Engine rebuild

I've always primed the oil by pulling the distributor and spinning the pump drive with a long bolt with a slot ground in the head.

I've always just bought what Land Rover / Rover recommend for that engine configuration, from NGK or some other reputable manufacturer.
