You can use Buick 215 cam bearings but that's it. Crank & bore are different so no-go on rods & mains or piston rings - you'll need to use LR specific stuff.

Buick 215 Rover 3.5 Land Rover 4.0 and 4.6 differences

You don't need to blow big money on OE parts. Bearings and rings sold as "Allmakes" or "Eurospare" are usually made by well-known companies out of the UK or EU like King or AE so the quality is >/= OEM.

This is a pretty cool link

http://www.gomog.com/allmorgan/40difference.htm

I ended up cross referencing this number at a machine shop in desperation.

The only difference was oil valleys cut out in the front cam bearing only. With research online and a few machinist I determined, for a100k mi quick rebuild, these were perfect. They fit well. I helped him put them in and check the cam and bore sight for 60$. The link on amazon is 34$.

I dealt with PTSchram and he saved me a lot of money so you should call him. He is a wealth of info. He in no way recommended I install Buick bearings. I can also tell you on the crank and mains, search around get .2 over or whatever you can make up for differences in the first link. I had a good friend helping that found the other measurements. The manufacturer will give you what you want google is your friend
