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.

I am building my first race car, a 1967 MGB-GT with a Jaguar V12 and am hoping to be competitive in SCCA's EMod class. The class allows any engine available in a car in the US to be put in any body that was available in the US. In this video, I start the engine for the first time.
