Rover V8 engine started on the floor. Holley, Offenhauser and electronic ignition. No Exhaust pipes

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.
