    Hello everyone, I'm hoping to have some light shed on an unusual problem. I took my 2002 TF 160 out for a drive yesterday, got about 5 miles and without warning the gear stick became incredibly hard to shift. My first thought was as if someone had dumped a load of super glue on to it. I pulled...

    Hi Everyone, I'm on the home straight of an engine rebuild, partly done by me and partly done by an engine specialist. Long and short of it is I never split the box from the engine - the specialist did... I'm now getting ready to mate the two back together but it looks like there was some type...
  3. Metro / Rover 100
    Hi, I'm looking to replace the gearbox on my 1997 Rover 114 Sli, as it grinds specifically when shifting both up, and down, into second gear. I know it currently has a R65 gearbox in it, and many other Rover models use this gearbox. Now, I was wondering if I would have to replace the current...

    Hi i want to make a 1.6vvc engine I'm just wondering what gearbox will I need to handle the power? Or will the standard gearbox that comes in a 1.4 105 mg zr last?
  5. MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    Hi Everyone, Driving my 2000 Rover 25 GTi (PG1 gearbox) yesterday I was pulling away in 1st when something sounded like it had broken from the gearbox area and subsequently then the car could not deliver power to the wheels. When the car is idle, you can hear a very slight rub which wasn't...

    Hi there, when i accelerate gently from standstill as the car begins to pick up speed and a couple of seconds before changing gear i hear a whining sound, then once the gear changes and i accelerate again the same thing happens in each gear and so on. I did not notice this until recently as i...
  8. MG/R Modification & Tuning
    Just wondering if anyone has used a drev box on a petrol to see what speeds were possible? Or maybe the 5th gear from a derv in a petrol box or something? Purely for low rev cruising, but also for rapid top end? I imagine it would only be worth it on KTurbos or T16 (if atall possible as they...
  9. MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    I've got my eye on a 1.8t ZT on ebay thats coming to an end soon, and still fairly cheap. Reading up, it has a Getrag gearbox... My ZR also has a Getrag box, the IB5 from the Fez ZS, Rumour has it that the IB5 is good for only 150bhp, and obv. the ZT is 160 as standard, so, am I supposed to...

    Hello, so after ignoring my brother's warning not to buy a second hand Rover 25, (Y), maybe I should have listened!? I won't bore you with the raft of issues (not cylinder head though which seems to cause a sharp intake of breath for most mechanics when a rover is mentioned!). So, losing gear...
