Rimmer Bros aims to help keep the job of maintaining and enhancing your Rover V8 engine as straightforward as possible, not only with an unbeatable stock of Rover V8 engine components but with affordable prices and swift, efficient service.

Known in the UK and worldwide for our history, expertise, service and commitment to excellence, Rimmer Bros is the trusted one-stop shop for Rover V8 engine parts and accessories.

Rimmer Bros has been supporting Rover V8 engine enthusiasts, garages and specialists since the early 1980s with an extensive selection of original, replacement and re-manufactured components. Our catalogues and digital resources meticulously list manufacturer part numbers to assist in identifying the correct items for various applications. Recognising the broad application of the V8 engine across multiple vehicle brands (including Land Rover, Triumph sports cars, Morgan and TVR), Rimmer Bros caters to a diverse range of needs from full engine rebuild kits to simple maintenance parts like fuel filters.

Introduced initially in the Rover P5 saloon in 1967, this versatile power unit evolved over time yet retained its core design; allowing compatibility between different versions that benefits upgrading earlier models. The revered Rover V8 is renowned among petrolheads for offering excellent value regarding performance enhancement due to its availability, adaptability and light weight - not forgetting its iconic sound quality which adds another layer of satisfaction for owners.

We have a reference chart of Rover V8 engine numbers from 1970 onwards, which helps you identify the engine fitted to your vehicle. The engine number of most Rover V8s is stamped on the left-hand side of the block deck, adjacent to the dipstick tube, although some very early engines had the number stamped on the bellhousing flange at the rear of the block.

The chart also contains a brief description of features, such as compression ratio and gearbox type and also the approximate year of production. Therefore, if your engine has been changed at some time, it should still be possible to correctly identify it. To ensure you receive the correct parts, please have your engine number ready before ordering. ‘Pulsair' and ‘Air Injection' are terms applied to engines equipped with Air Rail type cylinder heads (i.e. cylinder heads with steel pipes located in holes just above the exhaust ports - fitted to carb Range Rover and TR8 engines only). ‘Detoxed' refers to a variety of emission control devices (including Air Rails) fitted to carb engines.

If you're unsure about the compatibility of a part or accessory for your vehicle, please contact us with your full Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

Rimmer Bros, established in 1982, is a British company supporting British cars. The Rimmer Bros service is hard to beat: we have the parts, we guarantee the quality, we're keen on price, we deliver fast, we know your car.

As the British motor industry contracted, Rimmer Bros expanded to ensure the continued maintenance, restoration and enjoyment of many beloved classic cars no longer supported by their original makers. Our support, starting strongly with Triumph, extended to include Rover SD1 models in the 1990s, and later expanded to cover Land Rover and Range Rover models, reaching up to the present day. In 2005, our commitment grew to encompass more modern MG-Rover cars and by 2012 we further extended our range to include Jaguar models from 1996 onwards. This growth reflects our dedication to serving the diverse community of classic and modern British car enthusiasts.

We are proud to have British Motor Heritage Approval for our Triumph, MG, Mini and Rover SD1 parts operation. First appointed in 1987, Heritage Approval acknowledges the highest possible standards of service, product knowledge, financial stability and well-equipped premises. We always carry a wide range of Heritage Original Equipment parts in stock.

As a long-established business, customer satisfaction is at the heart of everything we do.
