My series 3 broke down on me just 1024km's into our trip and I think we lost either the clutch or the gear box.... It clunked out just as the sun was settling and we had a hard time sourcing the problem with our head lamps, we'll take a closer look in the morning....
It will "go into gear", motor is running tip top btw, won't drive forward in any gears from R to 4th in 2x4 or 4x4... Leading me to believe the old clutch just cratered and therefore we are not getting any power transferred from the engine to the gear box... The clutch petal moves just as it should.... Is it possible that our O/D unit failed on us?
Original 2.25L petrol engine with 4 speed gear box with over drive, it's a 1979
Any help from you Rover vets would be amazing, would love to get this fixed ASAP and on with our trip without getting a tow!
