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.
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.
