Hi all. I'm looking at buying a 1979 Type 2 which has had the engine converted to a 3.5lt V8 Rover engine. Could someone please give me advice as to whether they think this would be a good idea, considering the Rover engine would have been designed for the front of a car, not rear? Also, I plan to use the Kombi to travel around Australia a fair bit. Do you think I'll have much difficulty getting Rover spare parts, compared to VW parts. Any advice would be much appreciated as I'm a newbie to this and keen to learn!
