I am ideally looking to overhaul my 1998 Mpi engine & Gearbox myself but with little / no experience is there a possible step by step guide with pictures anywhere?

 

Had a few quotes hence the desicion to tackle this myself..........

 

Thanks

The Haynes manual has a good breakdown and rebuild section in it for the MPi I believe. #inbeforenick

Thanks, I was hoping for a more modern step by step guide by Haynes have gone digital now with yearly subscriptions so you can view via iPhone / ipad so a few options.

To be honest, when I built mine, I use a combination of the Haynes manual and the rover workshop manual. It's a simple engine, not too difficult to rebuild.

Did mine recently (first time) with a combination of Haynes manuals, Guessworks and Minimania videos. And this forum of course!

I can’t get the videos to play from the link so is it best just to watch them via YouTube? Cheers!

nothing wrong with watching them wherever you want, though they do seem to be working for me
