I agree Slats.
The wiring on a Rover is as good as anything I've ever seen, and better than
most Japanese things.
Yeah the generator regulators wore out - they were electromechanical, with
no diodes; remember this was specced and built in the 60s for a P6. The
other parts last well.
Yeah the fuel pump points on P4s Needed a diode.
I haven't had an issue with the P6B dizzy yet, it seems to work fine. The
wiper motors last ages, like most of the rotating parts; I've had two P6
starters die the same way, the pinion splits. The rest is Fine.
