This book is a practical guide to keeping the Freelander's unique Rover K engine 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.
About the Author: Iain Ayre has been writing about Minis for longer than he cares to remember, starting with MiniWorld, before the Rolling Stones looked like raisins, and moving over to Mini Magazine while the Mini was still in production. Of the 1,000 or so motoring magazine articles he has written, a good percentage have been about Minis. He has driven a Mini to Alicante and back for fun, and has even designed a three-wheeler, based on Mini mechanicals, which failed to make his fortune. Since 2000, he has been reporting from North America on the US and Canadian Mini scene, and has sadly neglected his rare Canadian-spec Mini, in favor of assembling a Mini-Marcos, an obscure racing kit car based on the Mini mechanicals: this is fitted with a mean 1100cc engine, the spec of which is detailed in this new book. The Ultimate Mini Restoration Manual is his second book on Minis: the first was a collection of surreal but entertaining Mini derivatives entitled Mad Minis.
