> Hi Rovernetters,

> It's a little late to shop, but if you get the chance, give your fellow

> Engines."  I snuck my copy out from the stocking when no one was looking 
> and read it from cover to cover in one sitting.  I have been humbled and 
> enlightened by this very thorough and up-to-date treatment of my beloved 
> engines.  I learned much and will be doing some very specific inspections 
> of my stock of V8 blocks as a result. DO NOT BUY A USED ROVER V8 BEFORE 
> YOU READ THIS BOOK. It is well worth the exhorbitant price.  I have only 
> found a few things to question. ( 1.I believe John Harcourt is still 
> making his single plane intakes. At least he was a year ago when I bought 
> one. 2. I believe Oldsmobile 215 blocks had prepositioned cast-in sleeves 
> like the Buicks, though Hammill says they were pressed in like Rovers. 
> I've got a couple of Olds blocks and intend to check this out.)
