Hey guys, i'm tearing down my '89 3.9 to replace the head gaskets, and got to thinking if anyone here has heard of or seen or done a Chevy 350 swap into the rover? My land rover specialist told me when he was re-timing that it may be more than just the gaskets, and that it may be something much more serious, that would need an engine replacement entirely. My brother - the one who i let borrow the rover, and the one who when he was borrowing it kinda blew it up- has a 80's Chevy costum deluxe, which needs trans work and is sitting in his yard, and suggested that if i do need to swap the engine to use his 350 - and just get the trans work done that's needed for it. Sounds interesting, and was curious if anyone knew if this has been done, or is possible?
check out June issue of Landrover Owner International mag. You'll see a 6.6 Chevy Overfinch Rover. This one's especially cool with a disco 5 speed and lt230 locking transfer case. Also details on parts.
