Land Rover Engine Block Leak Tester
If you suspect a blown head gasket on that Land Rover 4.0/4.6 Engine, we've
got something you need! Developed in conjunction with our own shops,
Motorcars LTD proudly introduces yet another unique solution that will save
you time, money and possibly your reputation.
The video demonstrates the Rover Engine Block Tester. Although we tested
on a used bare block, the test can be performed on an engine that's sitting
between the frame rails. Eliminate the risk of installing head gaskets
only to have your customer return later with the same problem - only to
discover it was not the head gasket.
This tool will easily pay for itself on the first use.

V8 Land Rover first start in 2 years
Thos 1974 Series III 109 stripped a gear tooth (or several) a couple of
years ago and hasn't been run since. Purely out of interest, I decided to
see if it would still go, with impressive results. The Landy was originally
fitted with the 2.6-litre 6-cylinder IOE engine, but is now running a
3.5-litre Rover V8 with SU carbs from an SD1.

survive the 2.5 hour beating at 5500 RPM and make even more power with the
carbs in tune?

Rover The Long Goodbye
Rover: The Long Goodbye 20 March 2007 BBC Four
Documentary which traces the rise and fall of a great British brand.
In the days when Britain's car industry was the envy of the world, Rover
epitomised everything to which the driver of taste aspired, but in 2005 it
reached the end of the road. The film explores how Rover cars went from
defining their eras to becoming victims of their times, telling the story
behind the key models to the controversial joint ventures with Japanese and
Indian manufacturers in later years.

Ferrari V8 vs Corvette V8 - Why do they sound different?
Why does a Ferrari V8 sound different than a Corvette V8? The magic comes
down to the crankshaft type, and the firing order. Because of the flatplane
crankshaft, Ferrari V8 engines have the Exhaust pulses fire back and forth evenly
between the two cylinder banks. Corvettes on the other hand, have a more
uneven firing order in regards to the cylinder banks, resulting in
momentarily greater Exhaust pulses and
then moments without Exhaust pulses.
Both engines sound great, but they operate in different fashions.
