New Owner of 620Ti, parts needed
Hi, new owner of a 620Ti, later type badged as 600, No dizzy.
arrived yesterday bought unseen, totally standard unmodified,,,,,,, so seller said,,
Appears to have 820 wheels, 15"
Engine appears to be Brand New, or rebuilt,
Unfortunately when it came off transporter it was peeing out oil from front, and i mean PEEING it out,
Stripped down timing belt and covers and found front oil seal not in oil pump cover?????? Does not look like a new seal, Bought a Brand new genuine Rover seal from Rimmers today, will fit on monday (fingers crossed)
Never had anything to do with 600's before, so its all new to me, (Engine was destined for a Rover SD1 2000, but car sold to a collector)
Car sounds super sweet, but i hav'nt driven it yet
Gear linkage is super sloppy across neutral range, but selects gears just fine,
Parts I Need:
Pass door mirror (black)
R/H/R door rubbing strip (black)
Top timing belt cover (outer)
Maybe original 620Ti wheels if price is right
I thought later cars had body coloured mouldings, this one has black mirrors, black rubbing strips, black sills,
Maybe i bought a Lemon? but car looks straight, not many left registered
And so far i havnt found one in Ireland
Will be a nice car for me when restored,
P.S. I am owner of Rover SD1 'Barclay' GrpA replica, i built it from a New, Never Registered LHD car, cost a FORTUNE to build, but accurate to the Only LHD TWR car ever built.
Any help from you guys with the 620 much appreciated, look foreward to driving it
