1966 MGB with a Rover V8 - Episode 1 - The "Slipped Liner"
Ken Smith of Kenzmyth Productions takes a turn as talent in the short video
of what to look out for in the early Rover V8 engines with possible
"slipped liners", also known as inserts or sleeves. His 1966 MGB V8
conversion project developed this problem necessitating the removal of the
Rover 3.5 liter engine and trashing of the aluminum block. Enjoy!

Driving the LS1-powered MGB GT
The almost-finished LS1-powered MGB GT on the road! The car is a 1972
chassis that's been rebuilt from an almost-bare shell. Power comes from a
lightly modified 5.7l LS1 V8 from a 1998 Camaro Z28, running through a T56
6-speed transmission and a Positraction rear end. The front runs a
custom-built frame with Miata suspension and steering. The rear is a GM
axle with a custom three-link suspension. The body was widened using steel
flares from a Rabbit, and has been massively reinforced underneath to
handle the power and torque. It's not quite reassembled after the paint
job, there's a bit of chrome missing along with the fenders.
All the work was done in my home garage on jackstands, including the paint.
It took about two years to build the car.
