Re: Rover 400 - DOHC or SOHC?

As it's 97 we can be fairly sure it's going to be the rover K series double overhead cam engine, if that's the case the intake and exhaust cams are the same but bear in mind if you're changing one camshaft do you need to check the end float and bearing clearances

Hello I have an R8 ‘95 with 1.6 Honda engine. I’m not sure whether it’s compatible but I need engine and gearbox mounts?
Thanks, Matt
Hi Matt sorry I need the mounts as the engine is going into a shell that was originally Rover engined
