I think the period is pretty obvious tbh - "for the Rover 75 or any other car built in the 1990s/early 2000s"

I don't know of anywhere that such a list is publicly available. Have you tried contacting MG Motor at Longbridge. They still hold some of the records from those days and some of the MG Motor staff worked for MG Rover.

As the request has been initially posted under a thread regarding the K series engine, I am assuming that there would be a particular interest in that range of engines - in which case I would highly recommend getting hold of a copy of The Rover K-Series 16V Engine by Des Hammill (published by CPPress; ISBN: 1 84155 688 2) as a good starting point. In it, the author lists all the component suppliers for that range of engines.

A visit to a scrapyard and removal of interior trim parts may reveal a number of makers names for smaller parts as there is often a label stuck to the rear of such parts which has the suppliers name on it.

If you are able to come up with a comprehensive list of component suppliers, I am sure many of us here would be interested to see it

The problem with the FL is the extra oil cooler for the IRD (Intermediate Reduction Drive/transfer box)
