Getting a Rover K-Series engine properly up and running can be a
difficult task, but the result is always worthwhile. Rover K-Series
Engine - Maintenance, Repair and Modification is a practical guide to
keeping these unique engines in fine working order. The most well-known
issue with the K-Series is the head gasket, and this book identifies
common faults, before giving practical advice on how best to solve them.
Step-by-step guidance on long-term engine maintenance is provided, in
addition to the improvements required to prevent further problems. A
K-Series engine is stripped down to examine its clever and interesting
structure, and is rebuilt with improvements. Authors of over twenty
automotive books, Iain Ayre and Rob Hawkins have combined their
knowledge to bring you this book on the Rover K-Series engine. Topics
covered include the history of the K-Series; common faults and
solutions; full strip down and rebuild; the Rover KV6; modifications for
power and reliability; electronics and programming and comparisons with
similar engine options.
