Hi All,
This has been done before by others...I have a rover 3.9 block and a P76 crank which I can make a 5 litre version.
So you can either reduce the diameter of the crank mains and flywheel mounting or line bore the block to fit the crank.
What rod and piston combinations can be used?
With the standard 3.5/3.9 rod the piston pin is 8 mm off the P76 crank counterweight....a bit close but can the standard rod be used?

Thanks,
James.
