    How much are they, Bob?

    As I recall, the last time I was able to find the correct seal, it was around $20 Cdn - a few bucks more in OZ$, so don't rush out and buy a bunch of these things, 'till we've explored all the avenues.

    You guys down under are pretty skillful at finding these solutions.

    I've been on and off this project for over two years. B&G and Abingdon and Colin Staf...

    I finally got around to installing the Moss plastic cooling fan on my MGA. Why? Well, the blades on my metal fan were out of balance and one of them was coming loose around the rivets. I thought it was a good opportunity to give it a try. My car always ran a little hot, but normal for my car I suppose. With the new fan it runs about 5 degrees cooler at idle and the temp does not creep us as fa...

    The 2 pack lacquer went on very nicely (i must admit it was my friend Paul who did the actual spraying).

    When you buy the 2 pack get a measuring rule also to help you mix everything correctly.

    We are lucky though as we can just spray outside as its normally 34 C + here

    Does it go away? Mine rattles for 2 seconds or so then as the pressure comes up the noise disappears. I'm in the habit of cranking it 10 or so times with the choke closed
    to bring up the oil pressure. Maybe dodgy oil or the pressure relief valve is suspect.

    I accidently clicked on mgb instead of a and saw your post. I was the original owner of a 79 and mine went out in around 83. By then no dealer support. When it went it would stall and then start right back up but as time went on it took longer before it would restart. I was told that as time went on someday it wouldn't start back up at all. John Twist advised me that the next time it happened to w...

    Quite a tale in the telling! We can celebrate that the original owner has the parts back and a car to restore (better lock his garage better though)... and that Tom has gotten his money back (if not all the hours and trouble for both tom and Dave)and perhaps justice will prevail over all!

  • David Sheward 55 TF1500 # 742722 October 2014

    The gentleman in the center is Walter. He is happy because today all the pieces of TC6741 will all be in one place again! Loaded in a truck and headed for home. Tom & I are so happy to see this go back to the rightful owner.

    So that the end of the story?

    IMHO ...NO! Being the gentleman that he is , Walter stepped up and returned the purchase price to Tom. My earlier comment a...

    Hi Tony,
    I could be interested in the TF1500 EPEG motor but have no idea as to what one is worth. Would be buying as a back up spare. I live on the Sunshine Coast. So if you want to contact me my number is 07 54426860 or 0421 998447.
    Cheers John
