MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - Best Rover V8 manual


Can anyone recommend the best workshop manual for the Rover V8 SD1. I'm interested in learning about the engine (I have a basic mechanical knowledge) rather than undertaking performance upgrades etc.


(1965 mgb roadster V8).

Previous owner of my GTV8 gave me a Haynes Range Rover Manual-engine wise its nearly all there

The Rover V8 Engine by David Hardcastle covers a lot of ground and I think he's done another on tuning the V8.
I'm using a Haynes Rover SD1 manual which covers the nuts and bolts stuff.
There's nothing scarey about them (until you look at the wiring for the fuel injection!!!!!!). Just a good big engine that doesn't weigh too much.
have fun!
