DOLOMITE EN­GINE SWAP

Classics Monthly - - Service Bay -

Q:

How prac­ti­cal would it be to re­place the knack­ered 1850 en­gine in my 1977 Dolomite auto with the en­gine and five speed box from a 1984 Rover 2000? It looks like it will fit but has it been done?

A:

BL did this con­ver­sion on the TR7, and the O-Series is an al­to­gether bet­ter en­gine, su­perbly re­li­able and tough. You will need to make the en­gine mounts, pos­si­bly tilt the en­gine over, have a prop made and an ex­haust. It’s a lot of work!
