The new Rover V8 in my MGB - Starting for the first time
So, after a year or so I have finaly inserted a new V8 in my MGB. This video show the very first (and successful) attempt at starting the new engine. After 7 years on the road, the original engine's block cracked 1 month before I retired and moved to Lyme Regis in July 2007. I've never performed anything major like this before, so this was a big and anxious moment.





First start - side valve V8
This is the first start of the engine in an old Australian Ford army truck. These were ordered for the Australian armed forces during WW2 by the Australian Goverment and were originally built in Canada. They are known as CMP's (Canadian Military Pattern) or to Australians as a Blitz.

Awesome Rover V8-Powered Trabant!
This is my buddy Pascal in Wingene, Belgium (the Pig Capital of Belgium) driving Marino's Trabant with a 4.5L Rover V8 stuffed into it, bucket seats and complete roll cage and a turbo 350 Transmission. Pascal was unable to do a burnout but check out me on another vid- I know how to do it. This little thing is insane. Pascal from Looney Art did the body/paint work, he's the best in Belgium!

ford capri 3.9 rover v8 start up
First time start up in over 2 years. Last run was in 2002 at Avon park raceway with a 11.3 at 123mph. but in process of making it street legal again. Vehicle was Dyno at 320bhp without nos, but has had a extra 100bhp to run a 11.3. as got jets for 200bhp but never at the chance. Engine has run down into the low 10s in a another vehicle, but since then it's been upgraded and rebuilt.

Rover P6 V8 Acceleration WOW!!
Getting from minor road to major with a tight clutch. Sounds impresive - did'nt help child's car sickness though! According to the chap driving behind us we produced a minor plume of smoke from the tyres - so can that be classed as a burnout ?) The Rover V8 engine has been fitted to many great vehicles over 30 years - TVR, Landrover, even LDV Sherpa ambulances and Police vans! There is another video on youtube that shows an old Ferguson tractor with Rover V8 engine fitted!! Not original equipment I would guess
