it's a little difficult to explain something in english for me....
It's pleasant for me to write in english and ERIC smile with manuel and
manual etc....
It's a joke of course.I learn every days and he is an teacher for me.
I want keep my rover in "stock" design.I want a sliding sunroof like the
factory fitted in 1973.
The price of a new sunroof from R&S coachbuilts is about 1100$ , expensive
for the moment. I prefer to find an original sunroof ,complete , perhaps
with a material in bad repair.
Eric have a little one at about 50€+200€ for a new material=250/300€ it's OK
like that for me.
ERIC: I have 2 steel roofs for P6:i can do a mistake when I cut the first
one.For this reason I don't need manual for the sunroof.(joke)
you can also put an 1/4 liter of "VASELINE" (petroleum jelly buy in
drugstore ) in the oil pump.Vaseline is completely mixed with oil.It's very
good to have a good pressure for the first start.
If you take a drill after about 2 mn, you must  have a pressure , the drill
turn more slowly, the pressure become higher.
The best is to fill the hydraulic tappets.(leave in a box during 24 H in
special oil ).

        thank you           denis
