Hi there Kent and all others  Kent, I vote for the P6. I'm jealous of the gearbox. But first things first, I have plenty of work to do this weekend, following all the good advises I have got from you all. After that I hope the engine runs well and then I'm starting my campain to get my friend Tom to give me his 5 speed Rover box. Best Rover greetings Jan

Ämne: [ROVERNET - UK] Treasure Amid the Trash

Hi Netters,
I had a wonderful surprise today.  I have been trying to strip the cars 
that won't be moving with me in June and have been brutalizing a rusty 
SD1 that had already been picked over before I got it.  It still had an 
engine and five speed.  I disconnected everything in the engine 
compartment, turned the car upside down and dumped the engine and trans 
out, loaded the engine and trans into the truck and took it to the 
shop.  The engine was pretty bad, crusty goop everywhere inside, but the 
trans had evidently been replaced at some point just before the car came 
off the road...and is absolutely perfect!!!!  Should I put it in an SD1 
or go ahead and do the P6B conversion to five speed, now that I have a 
spare base unit?  Garrett Bourque has a nice P6B without a transmission 
that he wants to sell.....hmmm.
