    The ford at the end (water not motorcar!) is in Kenilworth - about 5 miles from Coventry so geography is about right

    And having had a chance to look at the enjoyable video it looks like the crankcase is cast with the words 'Rover Coventry'. Doh!

    Great vid, thanks for posting.

    Wish it was that easy dropping a set of barrels and pistons on a T160 :)

    It would seem that gaskets had yet to be invented when the engine assembley was filmed:). The test rider who fell off going through the ford reminds me of an off road ride recently. Thankfully it was my mate Steve who fell off & not me!
