Re: Ebay again

I saw my old 2.25 for sale in America a few years after I parted with it. I hope it found a buyer who appreciated it more than whoever was selling it apparently did - it may not have been the fastest vehicle on the road but it was the most reliable I ever owned.

Re: Gumtree again

That'll make it very 'green' then. You just put it in another barn.

Re: Restoration

The badge appeared to be riveted in place but ... In fact, it was a simple matter of pushing 2 fixing posts on the badge out from the 2 mounting holes in the panel.
Considering what the originals make now, it might be better if they were riveted in place!

Re: Speedometer

Further to my previous post and map's reply, the 110 Parts Catalogue (up to Aug '86) gives only one part number (FRC3162) for the worm gear for the V8 - 4 SPEED - GEARBOX (LT95) and one part number for its associated spindle (FRC3310) The Stage One's LT95's spindle is part number FRC2284. Both have ...

Re: Speedometer

My question followed on from Glen saying, "... if someone fits a complete Range Rover gearbox the speedo will underread by about 32%." Both my Stage Ones have replacement 110 LT95 gearboxes fitted by previous owners. The green one's serial number is 17C00198A. It was almost certainly new w...

Re: Speedometer

What about if a complete LT95 gearbox from a 110 is fitted to a Stage One?

Re: Restoration

I provided these part numbers on here last year:

Seems like a lot of trouble and expense to go to for the privilege of blowing non-heated air into the vehicle when you can just open the bulkhead flaps instead.

Re: Bumper wanted

D rings were a pretty common standard fitting on new Stage Ones. I've a number of Rover press photos from the time that show clearly if you blow them up that the rings were fitted as mine are described above. Here's the best such press photo I could find quickly online: https://www.autocar.co.uk/sit...

Re: Bumper wanted

The useless starter handle hole was nevertheless still present as standard on the Stage 1 bumper in spite of being completely unnecessary because it didn't line up with the higher starter dog - probably something to do with using the same standard stock of basic bumper before different brackets were...
