Today I changed the thermostat on my P6B 1976, as the engine has been taking
forever to warm up. Despite my best efforts, I stripped a thread when
replacing the bolts on the thermostat housing.
I have a tap to re-thread the hole a size larger to take bigger diameter
bolts. As a rooky Rover owner my questions are please Netters:
Access is going to be a problem - should I remove the distributor to get a
clear shot at retapping the thread by hand? Or would I be best to take off
the inlet manifold entirely?
Please forgive the lack of knowledge displayed and your responses will be
genuinely appreciated. We are hosting the National Rove, a get together of
Rovers from all over Australia, next week, and my car may not be leaving the
garage at this stage.
