Check with Paul Grant for the parts. If he doesn't have them try Will Tillery or Drillbit.
I don't remember... are you going EFI or staying carb'd?

I just read back a few pages. You should search high & low for those missing parts. Rockers & timing cover shouldn't be too hard to replace but I think your valve covers maybe hard to find replacements.

I have looked everywhere, 3x! If it's not at my house it must be at the machine shop. Problem is I don't know which machine shop it went to. It was taken to 2 different one since the first one took so long. The person who was helping me has also gone MIA and I cannot get a response from him. Like I said a lot of behind the scene BS and a lot of frustration.

What's on the right side of the engine with the 2 silver hoses?

If you want to switch to EFI, I have almost all the bits minus some sensors.

Looks like Stephen @ SHP has a take out 3.5 V8 he listed a few months ago. I am waiting on a response from his ad. Thanks for the offer but I was hoping to keep it as original as possible with this rebuild, making mods only to improve reliability/comfort like the Edelbrock carbs and R380 upgrades.

I am so upset at this point I am ready to abandon this mission all together. I am currently on page 25 of Nick's LS conversion to see if I can do this on a RHD (without fouling the steering gear). I already have everything apart, with a newly rebuilt LT230 so if I were to do it, now is the time. I am not pulling the engine out a third time.

I was trying to avoid all the electronics and keep it simple with the carbs but honestly at this point, why the hell not!

Get her up and running and enjoy while you work on the series I. Flat lands and a carb V8 is good enough power.

A BMW straight six would be perfect in a RHD. The electronics are actually pretty simple.

I have a few leads on some 3.5 V8 take outs. With all the LS conversions they must be easy and cheap enough. Fingers crossed.

So after calling around to different places, Stephen at SafariHP had a takeout 3.5 for sale. I show up with money in hand and explained to him I only needed a few parts and not the whole engine and he hooks me up with this. For free. I tried to offer him some cash but he absolutely refuses. What can I say? Stephen saves the day! Again.

I bought my 110 in 2009. Changed from the 3.5 to an EFI 3.9, then to a diesel. I haven't driven it more than 500 miles since 2012 after starting my version of a rebuild. After reading this (yes, I just read this whole thread), I am motivated to get off my lazy a$$ and finish it. I'm glad to see you didn't give up...regardless of all the behind the scenes garbage. Keep going!

Yeah I'm gonna keep plugging on with the Rover V8. Started stripping the donor this week. Making sure this time to upload a lots of pics. I lost all my previous tear down pics when my computer crashed. I had it backed up and that backup drive crashed too

Ok so quick question for you engine rebuilders. What is that metal cover on the rocker for? I don't remember having one on my original 3.5.

And is there supposed to be a gasket on the end of the camshaft?

Ok I take that back. Looking a few pages back my original rockers have the metal shield on them. And according to the V8 overhaul manual there is no O ring on the front of the camshaft as it provides oil to lubricate the timing chain and distributor drive:

Putting the bearings in the con rods and noticed the "hole" in the bearings did not line up with the oil channel in the con rods:

Broke out the dremel and now the channel will have no trouble with oil delivery.

Survived hurricane Matthew last year and Irma few weeks ago with the truck in the backyard without any protection. Iíll be damned if I do all this and let Mother Nature destroy this truck!

With all the pistons finally in, next will be the camshaft. This is my first engine rebuild and I needed some guidance so I don't mess it up. Pete's Garage is an excellent source. This guy is very thorough and watching his videos have really helped. He has a lot of videos but I find this series to be the most useful. This is part 1 of 6 in this series:
