V8 Land Rover first start in 2 years
Thos 1974 Series III 109 stripped a gear tooth (or several) a couple of
years ago and hasn't been run since. Purely out of interest, I decided to
see if it would still go, with impressive results. The Landy was originally
fitted with the 2.6-litre 6-cylinder IOE engine, but is now running a
3.5-litre Rover V8 with SU carbs from an SD1.

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
Design with Style -- The Rover SD1
Rover and British Leyland were beset by problems in the mid 1970s. Out of
this cauldron of mismanagement came the Rover SD1 in 1976. It was called
SD for the Specialist Division and 1 for the first car to come from the
in-house styling department. Despite a dramatic, innovative design both
inside and out, the option of classic V8 grunt, and more or less
universally praised dynamics, the SD1's reputation -and its longevity
suffered at the hands of a company in meltdown.
And it could all have been so different. The car, which was styled by
Rover's design genius David Bache, had some grand ambitions. It had been
designed to look like a family version of contemporary Italian supercars
(they even got a load of Italian supercars in for comparison purposes early
in the design process), while the attractive interior was intelligently
designed from both a user's and an engineering perspective. Such was BL's
confidence in it that they ploughed £31 million into a new factory (which
in the end would be mothballed after just five years
it even received rave reviews from the motoring press. "It is hard to be
over-enthusiastic about the new 3500" said Autocar. "On every score, its
qualities justify any kind of enthusiasm. It would have been hard to
predict, especially looking at the bald paper specification, just how well
the car would perform, handle and ride.
"Add to that the spaciousness and aerodynamic efficiency of the body, and
the attention paid to ensuring that the car will last, and it is easy to
see why all competitors are casting worried glances, not only at the car
but also at its price. If the 3500 will be built in sufficient numbers, if
the quality can be maintained along with the price, and if the ground is
not cut from under its wheels by ill-advised legislation, the new 3500
should be one of the successes of the decade."
But production numbers, of course, could not be maintained and nor could
the quality. And all we are left with in the 21st century is a whole bag of
'what ifs' and a dwindling handful of what was once one of the most
promising cars ever to be created in Britain.
