Does your rover 214 have a k series engine if it does it could be a problem with your head gasket
An alternator for a Rover 214 can be ordered from the dealer or from a local auto parts store. In addition, an alternator can be found at a junk yard.
the rover model is early rover 200 series ie, 214, 216.
Where the engine meets the gearbox there is a large metal water pipe on top with a bleed screw on it, under distributor. Follow that pipe right round the back of the engine and it will join onto the stat housing with 3 little bolts
I had this problem. I solved it taking the car to my local scrap dealer and buying a bus pass with the £30 he give me
got a tape measure??????????????????
