WTB - V8 intake and carb(s) & misc.

Will be converting a Rover 4.0 EFI V8 to carburetor and looking for the following parts:

1. Intake manifold & carbs. (4 barrel or twin SU)
2. Front timing chain cover for distributor (HRC 1321)
3. Distributor

Any parts or leads would be appreciated.

Can you please educate me as I am not certain what a wobble drive or solid is with reference to.

I thought I could swap the 4.0 timing chain cover and camshaft, from a 3.5 or 3.9, to convert the coil pack engine to a traditional distributor.

I have two take off SU carbs from a 1989 3.5 V8, only had 60k mi on them. They are super clean but a few items have been removed to donate, One butterfly flap and shaft, one float, and maybe one spring. I can send photos later this week. Yours for $100 plus the ride.

I might have an intake manifold, will check.
