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

range rover classic 3.9 v8 engine rebuild
Running beaut after new mild performance camshaft,rollmaster adjustable
timing chain ,new pushrods,lifters,rocker arms,shafts, and a set of 2002
fully refurbished heads(12 thou shaved).k&n pod filter,8.5 msd leads,new
oil,filters,and lots of hours.
After cam shaft change,my engine developed top end knock,couldnt quite
pinpoint it,thought it was tappets or dreaded piston slap,...turned out the
rollmaster timing chain has a different shape that doesnt butt up to a lug
on timing cover,so eventually was gouging out aluminium on cover causing
cam float,hence the knock!
Very pleased to find this after removing covers to replace heads..so added
a thrust plate to hold the camshaft in place and all back together,all is
smooth and well (today,haha)
I'm guessing i've replaced some missing horses and likely added a few
extras from the original 185hp when new.
