aside from the Austin Princess I think Top Gear likes to pick on Rover's next. I have a 68 109, 73 SIII, disco hybrid, and a range rover. None are on the road all are some sort of project. I need to clean them out and simplify my life a little...I ended up with sooo many projects...I blame some sort of mental illness combined with boredom for that.

I think I'm paranoid.

I have a 64 109. Weirdly enough its my only toy that's guarenteed to start and go (not necessarily stop). And that's with a 690R, R1200GS Adv, Cagiva Elefant 750 LE and 600R as stable mates.

Interesting collection but I bet your tool collection is bigger.

if it has the stock rover engine is is probably the simplest Rovers are the only trucks I know of that can be started by hand.

I had that same problem. I change spark break from 0,9 to 0,8 and now is perfect

You are at least partially to blame.

It's waiting on a truck in MI now.
