    Rover V8 engine and TH400 transmission

    Can anyone advise regarding fitting a TH 400 auto transmission to a Rover 3.5 V8? I have read that Buick/Oldmobile/Pontiac pattern TH400's fit Buick 215 Ci engine pattern (Buick 215 being the same as Rover V.
    Not sure regarding flex plate and torque converter type, so any help and advice would be great.

    Ta very much

    no they don't fit direct. You have to make an adaptor up.

    I ran one one of these when I had a Rover in a Pop. The adaptor / flexplate came from Real Steel , give them a call. The TH400 is very heavy though.
