Welcome Mike, Good to have you here.

I'm a UK citizen but will be taking my V8 MGB stateside with me when my wife and I move there.

Hi Guys
Glad you finally found me, or vice versa. My name is Harry and I'm from B.C. Canada. I have a 66 E-type roadster that took me 20 years to build. I put in a 340 Dodge motor with a 727 trans an homemade SS exhaust manifolds and a new wider front frame. Stole a paint job from a well known movie and there you have it. I will post more photos elsewhere when I figure it out. Thanks H

All work is almost complete and is being done by Limeworks in Whittier,Ca. The engine is a 215 Rover with a T5 trans. When all the work is done I'll post some pictures.

(but he posted this to me in a Private Message, so I'm re-posting it here.)



I can't wait to see the Jensen Healey photos... can't get enough of them!

Hello Gentlemen. I live in west coast USA. I'm registering here to learn more about the Rover 3.5 I've recently acquired and plan to install in my 1929 Ford tudor.

For starters, where do each of the wires on the distributor connect? Will any standard coil work in conjunction with this ignition? Does anyone market electronic ignition modules for this distributor? Is there any special antifreeze one should use with aluminum engines? Etc etc. Thanks!

Wow - that's going to be one cool Tudor! Welcome to the forum, Rodney.

Your questions about Rover ignition (etc.) are better discussed in our Drivetrain sub-forum... but you might also find some clues in the MG forum because Rover V8s are particularly popular for MGB swaps. For example: this thread is currently running in the MG forum: Rover Distributor Amplifier. Make sure to surf around in the article archive for articles like this: Differences Between Rover Distributors.. Any antifreeze will work, but don't try to go without antifreeze.

Hello All-
Just heard about this site. Looks very cool, but I'm not sure I qualify for membership.
I have a 1965 Jaguar Mk2 with a Chevy 4.3 Vortec V6 & 4L60 transmission (not a V8). Also cruise control, Vintage Air AC/heat system, upgraded features such as shoulder/lap seat belts, third brake light, Sanderson headers, Magna-Flow mufflers, Dayton wire wheels, etc.
Was located in a barn in Benton Harbor, MI. Took 5 years part-time work to complete.
It's a daily driver and a blast to drive.
Be happy to answer any questions about the conversion.
Cheers,
Chuck Welch

Hello all!
I've been lurking around here for a little bit and thought it was time to introduce myself.
I'm Bill Heath, from southwest Missouri. I'm pretty new to the British car thing; bought a 1969 MGB roadster in 2008 and then bought a 1973 MGB roadster project about a year and a half ago. It is a stalled project from another enthusiast; body and paint completed (mostly, has some shop worn areas), needs drive train installed, wiring, interior, etc. It came with a new GM 3.4 crate engine and a 700R4 auto tranny.
I have not started on the project yet; I've been remodeling my shop into a proper work area, and saving some coin for all the "little stuff" that will come up. I was planning to complete the project more or less as the previous owner had started, with the 3.4 and 700R4, but then.....
Last year at he University Motors Summer Party, I drove Steve Carrick's car! Crap! A 3.4 is never gunna do that! Sooo, I've been considering my options.
I will be attending the British V8 Meeting in Omaha to look at what all you guys have done, ask millions of questions, and try to get closer to having a plan before starting to finish this project.
I look forward to seeing you all.
Bill

Good day gentlemen.

My name is Robert, and I am a British car nut, per se. I worked for Land Rover as a mechanic, and have spent most of my time working on Rovers, but I have acquired, more like inherited, my Mom's 74 MGB. It had a restoration about 20 years ago, but is in dire need of some love. As soon as I finish my full restoration of my 69 SIIA 88", I will tackle this project. As for my handle, I am a firefighter, so lots of time off to play with my toys!
Of course I have alot of questions, with a few answers, but I have found this website unbelievable. I will be posting pix when I start the project, and will try to make you all proud.
I just happen to have a few LR blocks laying around, and one of them is bound to end up in this project. Most likely will get either the 3.5 block from a two door Range Rover w/ LT77 gearbox, or maybe a 4.6 w/ an R380. I just dont know yet, but I look forward to the projecit n the glum days of winter here in Boulder, Colorado.

Thanks to the Moderator(s) for such an awesome site; and I look forward to meeting you guys.

Hi Kids!

I'm Jed. Some of you know me from the other place. :-)

I have a healthy 72 Roadster waiting on getting a 3.9 and an LT77 stuffed in, and a 67 GT with a buick 215 in the works. Still collecting parts for both.

Anyway, I've been lurking here for so long that I feel right at home, and figured it was time to make it official.
So that's that, now on with the show!
