Re: Romain green paint code

Hello Rob, Romain seems to be spelled in two different way, one with the "E" and one without. I lifted the following images from the tinternet Romaine Green.jpg This particular vehicle is still in the DVLA database, first registered November 1948 and has got a current MOT! Well done to whoever has i...

I'll see if there are any panels, that can be removed, with the original paint on them, to get a computer match done.

Re: Romain green paint code

I've just come across this old thread with no final update from the original poster. My current low-light project is Romain (Romaine) Green and the previous owner had paint mixed up for it in 2006 (5 Litres at a cost of £318.85 ex VAT). The code used was Rover Romain Green 030-0095. As my car had be...

Re: Traveller Stormforce All weather cover

you know what, looks like you need it more than I do. fill your boots. That's not a very nice comment (and I did supply my name, unlike you). My current Stormforce 4-ply cover has come to end-of-life and my Split-screen Traveller is now getting tree sap on it. The OP isn't responding to recent mess...

I went to the Hanworth Classic in Bushy Park today (Opposite Hampton Court Palace, Surrey) and spotted a split screen pick up. reg was 4 digits. I'd never personally seen one before in 30 years of owning classic cars.
Did you, by any chance, take any pictures? George.

Re: Spotted today.

Aha - I didn't notice that! Yes, indeed, the bonnet does look "short", but the windscreen still has a dummy "fake" centre strut (seen this before on an eBay offering).

Re: Spotted today.

thanks. I did know that splitty travellers had the shorter bonnet? No they didn't - I think that your post has a typo, given the question mark at the end of the statement. The Short Bonnet was only on Side-valve engined cars and the Traveller (Utility Vehicle) wasn't introduced until the merger wit...

Re: UFN 456 Electrics

Bought a voltage/current regulator from Bryan (private purchase, not from club spares). Finally put it into circuit and the power wires now have just over 12V - the original fitted one was cooking one of the coils, as it turns out. The indicators now work and I'll be able to refit the wiper motor. T...

Re: Clutch Pedal Return Spring

Drove the car up and down the cul-de-sac I live in, for a short road test and the return spring definitely needed to be connected.
Found the hole it goes into at the side of the R/H chassis leg.

Re: Oil leak from Side-valve oil filter mounting

Thicker paper gasket hasn't stopped the dribble leak - I even used a scraper on the mounting point surface to make sure that there were no leftover bits of previous gaskets. Interestingly, there is a small hole in the mounting surface, that doesn't have a corresponding hole in the Purolator head fit...

Re: Oil leak from Side-valve oil filter mounting

Got the engine fired up again, but the thin paper oil gasket is leaking. I will try the next thickness up.
I still haven't had a chance to look at the HOF250 filters.

Clutch Pedal Return Spring

How is this connected and which anchorage points should it be using?
This is a Side-Valve engine and Gearbox, converted from LHD to RHD.
