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.
