X2. They've done some good work. Not cheap though.

X3! Was at Rovalution this morning! I needed a coolant hose (radiator to expansion tank) for my P38. AB had it for $40, not bad but I needed it immediately as I've heard Lucas 4.6's like to stay properly cooled! ;-) Rovalution had it in stock for $27 total Canadian! What a deal! Most shops don't step on a part's price, but they certainly don't discount it! Drove there immediately and shot the $h!t with a couple of the guys there. What a great looking shop! Not a disco corral but rather lots of awesome rarer Rovers there; an '94 90 built in house, a 130, plenty of 110's and a series. I'm going to start going there when I'm in B.C.

Curious to know where you ended up fixing your truck. Ecr? I just got a Arles Blue 94 with Ac that pretty much need the same work you described minus the head. Any recommendations ? I can send the truck anywhere if needed as long as I know the work is right. I can't afford the ECR but I haven't talked to them yet.

I never started any work. Just holding off until I get more extra $$ to do the job.

ECR is the way to go if you want to make sure its done to a high standard.

I was going to just have different people I know do different jobs with me managing and staying on top of things.

There are actually better options than ECR.

Safari Heritage Products in Orlando. I mean if you were considering shipping to Maine, then why not Orlando.

They will be my friends if they do a good job

The last time I looked in to those TA heads they don't work with the rover factory intake and exhaust manifolds. They required custom exhaust (maybe down pipe I cant remember) and intakes to make them work. That pushed the price of using them for me out of the question. so before you buy them I would double check to see if they changed them to work or if there is a set of manifolds that work for your application.
