How Do I? rover v8 problems


In Fourth Gear
Bubbles in water system, thn engine overheats. Pushes out water.
Have, replaced inlet manifold gasket, then refitted and teted the engine. no improvement !

So, off with the heads, both were suspect at ech end between water jacket and end cylinder bore, both replaced with decent heads, refitted and tested, guess what ? still bubbles appearig in the rad' then over heats !

Any suggestion fella's ?
Is it a 3.9? cos if it is then you most likely have one of the liners loose at the top, quite a common fault:( . Not cheaply curable as it need the liners replacing with flanged ones to effect a cure, cos as built the head gasket sits on the block not the liner top:( , with the flange the gasket then sits on the liner so no leak:) .
