Anyone have a RRC V8 engine handy for a measurement?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone happen to have a Rover V8 in their garage that they would be willing to take a quick measurement from?

I'm looking for the distance from the block to the nose of the water pump.

Ideally a carb engine from a RRC, but I would also be interested in the Interim 3.9 (later 300-series Discos).

It is to compare it with this photo of a GEMS V8, which I have linked to from Chris Cowdery's excellent website:



Not sure if Chris is on this forum, but the page showing cross sections of a cracked 38a block paint a hell of a picture.
