Howdy Folks!

The engine in my Discovery 1is starting to have some concerning knock when its cold. I suspect its days are numbered. Here are two questions:

1) Any recommendations on keeping this alive longer? It sounds fine when warm but pretty wicked when cold.

2) Who makes the best reman/crate engines? Do you have any first hand experience with them?


FYI this is the Rover's second engine. the 4.0 died with the previous owner and he put a junkyard 4.6 in it. The 4.6 is the current motor.

I have worked with I.E. Rovers to build a raffle truck and know they do really good work on those and even up the displacement/power.

A few club members have bought long blocks from Rovers North/Atlantic British and had success.

Turner engineering in the UK does new/rebuilds and I have seen theirs in builds but I haven't personally purchased.

There are also kits to use LS engines and mate them to the drive train...

Hope that helps!
