    Cheers Alan.

    As an aside, does it solve the problem of air trapped at the rear of the slave? Or do you still need to push the rod in, if bleeding from dry? I'm guessing the air can still get trapped at the rear.

    I was out and around Crowborough yesterday, roof down. I saw an MGBGT. Just the one, and now't else.

    Down to Hastings today. Roof going down. And I'll wager that I won't see another Spridget or much else in the way of "classics".

    It just coincided with a friend and I upgrading his Frogeye's remote bleed to this Goodridge item from Rally Design as he was having trouble with the bleed nipple sealing on the one we fitted ages ago made from Sprite parts.
    Lawrence. They apparently have enough bits in stock to make five more. 40cm long and 20.

    Yeah, your right Sandy! It's the inside bolt and you can't even see it without trying hard and with the side cover panel on, well need I say more. It's going to stay as it is, even though I'll know it there. PJ

    Drift - what drift !
    That's a very neat and professional piece of work Alan.
    See you can get a ready made one if you have a Spitfire (sorry to mention the marque whose name we must not say...) and live in the US

    Comes at a price though.

    Returning to an earlier theme.


    We had a lovely drive out yesterday, about 100 mile round trip and only saw one other classic on the road, a lovely Riley RM who gave us a cheery wave.



    It was nice day, well nice enough to have the roof down and so surprising not to see anyone else using their old car.



    Not so long ago we regularly used to seer other MG's and c...

    We never dry decked our engines to mate the head to the block without a gasket, but we did have the block and heads decked so we could use solid copper gaskets which came in various thicknesses, plus flat, dished or domed pistons for compression control, which was needed depending what fuel we were running, pump gas, nitro methane, alcohol, even some home brew mixtures that could really get out of...

    The Pour & Restore actually draws the oil up out of the concrete and turns it to a dry powder. No scrubbing, mopping or rinsing and leaves no mess other than a white powder where you poured it. You just sweep it up. This is for dry non painted concrete, not epoxy painted floors where a rag will wipe the oil up. It makes life a little easier, I need easier! PJ

    Rod,
    Piston failure could be due to detonation caused by other issues. A s/c engine should run less spark advance (and beware of weak mixtures)!

    I don't find overheating a problem. However, before I dry decked my engine, It would pump out the coolant if I used lots of revs! That in turn caused the temp to rise if I didn't back off. The loss of coolant caused the overheating, not the ot...

    Surely there can't be any significant movement as long as the rear exhaust fixing is in good condition. A supplementary question is which direction should the end of the point, up or down, left or right?? Of course the 2 points are directly related as the gap is all about the the orientation of the silencer. My Falcon system points in and slightly down with a gap of 3/4 inch.

  • 1969 MGB ROADSTER, RUST FREE, NICE

    It is a 1969 roadster. It started with a very longtime owner in California. He kept it and maintained it well. He came to Colorado three years ago. It was maintained here by a very well known british car shop in Denver. It was bought by a friend that was going to take care of the few details it needed (Top, heater valve etc) but he suffered a serious back injury and was unable to work on cars. I b...
