Tess has been a bit grumpy recently, and it was probably my own silly fault, but now I have to fix it.
Now that everything seemed to be running OK, we had oil only where oil should be, and coolant was mostly where it should be, it was time to do some old school tuning.
The past couple of days have been busy, trying to get the Vitesse to start.
Owning a Rover SD1 means accepting that you will always have something to fix.
This is a Public Service Announcement. Rubbish low quality EFI fuel hose is being passed off as good quality, and is failing in a short period of time.
The Rover has been running pretty well recently, and I have been using it every opportunity. Its been great, but unfortunately the other day whilst under the bonnet I noticed something that really annoyed me.
Since the Wellington train system can’t help but try to fall into the ocean each time there is some weather, I had some spare time today to do some more work on the bike.
Before I could commit to any further work on the bike, I needed to know if the engine even ran.
Its time to fix the reason I havent driven the SD1 since the day I purchased it. The leaking fuel return hose.
