Range Rover 3.5 V8

The V8 motor used in Range Rovers and some Land Rovers has a long and interesting history. This one is out of a 1981 Range Rover.

V8 4.6
Block out of a Range Rover HSE 4.6, heads from an ex-Walkinshaw racing Rover SD1. This motor is now in a Land Rover FC101 hence the cast-iron exhaust manifolds where you might have expected elaborate "headers"; there just isn't room for anything else. It is a four-bolt block; you can see the side-bolts that hold the main-bearing caps to the side of the block for extra rigidity along the lower edge of the block.
  roller rockers
Roller rockers (non-standard) reduce friction. Rollers are fed with oil from the hole drilled in the rocker arm through to the shaft and its oil-way; oil runs down the groove onto roller.
