Good fortune and owning Rovers often doesn't end up in the same sentence.

Picked up a parts truck last Friday. Thought I'd steam it before stripping it- it had a leaking valley pan and was very gooey. Got partway through and thought I'd hit it again.



It's not every day you find a free Tophat motor. I'm still way into the negative side of the ledger with this Rover stuff, but the needle moved just a bit my way.

Help me out. What is a Tophat motor?
Turner engineering is a major and well known engine parts supplier and engine builder. I believe they have exclusive rights to Darton Sleeves.

An engine rebuilt with flanged cylinder liners (top hats) is a big deal in my opinion.

Probably at least $2000 in parts and machining on top of a regular rebuild

Nice find!:grin
