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.

330bhp MGB V8 v 540bhp Evo @ Silverstone Trax 2012.f4v
330bhp MGB V8, (980kg) Having fun with a very fast 540bhp (1200kg) evo. First test of my new rear wing and front splitter. Very Positive results. Fast turn oversteer has been virtually eliminated while top speed is hardly affected. I can carry more speed in the turns without the back end stepping out. The evo has a lot more straight line speed so was impressed with my little MGB. Oh and Gavin was slowing me down in the passenger seat LoL. Impressed with overtaking the Noble, that thing should fly. I could have dived down the inside of the little Vauxhall but decided to just let him know I was there by showing a front wheel, so was dissapointed when he blocked me down the straight.

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! BE SURE TO RATE THIS VIDEO.
