Re: Anyone know a good reference for the Rover 3.9 engine

What years 3.9L engines and vehicles? What kind of ignition and fuel system in them? (simple Lucas points Distributor and coil?, Lucas 35DM8 dizzy?, Hotwire?, Carbs or fuel injected, etc?). FYI - If you have a 35DLM8 dizzy with the amplifier bolted to the side, the amplifiers are know to fail quite ...
