    Hi
    I have a 1977 Range Rover with a very tired 3.5 V8 that needs a rebuild. Rimmer Bros website says that they can do a set of liners and pistons that, once rebored, will convert my block to a 3.9 capacity. Is it really as simple as this ? Can I still use my existing cylinder heads ? Presumably my stromberg carbs will need rejetting?
    Many thanks for any advice.
    Regards
    Pete
