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

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

A few days ago my dad and I took the MGB for its first proper run since it
was finished. We covered nearly 300 miles, averaged 22mpg and the temp
