Slightly different thread, but i know from personal experience, that the old LDV convoy rear axels, were built by the Rover group powertrain at solihull, just behind the assembly area where the Defender/Discovery were built.

I was under the impression that when the Rover group were broken up, axle production went to Powertrain Longbridge, As BMW/FORD had there own supply of engines, and with the demise of the V8 production, powertrain disappered from Solihull.

I also know that certain sub assembly's were produced by MGR at the Dalmuir plant (inside Longbridge, behind CAB2) for Rolls Royce. however as i left in 2000, iam not sure if this continued.

I worked as a Line feeder, assembly worker on all 3 tracks, was a team leader in the stores and receiving deck (always on green shift....bunch of nutters the lot of them)on the 2nd floor, ground floor was production lines and 3rd floor used for finishing MGTFs and ended as Material Planner in Dalmuir building producing - front, rear 25/45 & MGF/TF suspensions from 92 to 2000 and nothing was built for Rolls Royce while I was there to my knowledge...only specialist build i recall was for mg 25 rally cars. Then worked in south works, PG1 and finished in CAB1 until it closed.
