  • Prop and the Blackhole Midget11 February 2016

    To clean up...its going to need a resurface and im sure other work

    id just have the machine shop clean it...its not much maybe around $20-30

    Will fit 1275 A series no problems. It probably doesn't have a bypass tube as it is A plus. If yours still has the bypass tube you can run the A plus head by blanking off the bypass in your water pump and drilling one or two 6mm holes in the thermostat to act as the bypass.

    Steve..agree the more the merrier. However I am well aware of how small descrepancies alter calculations. I fill to a visible mark in the tank pipe ( very slowly towards the end) and I use gps plus cross check with Google for distances.. The info is fairly good and surprising given the topography.
    I also drove to and from Melbourne not so long ago ( post Judson) and recorded about 40 mpg over ...

  • MG LaVerne11 February 2016

    Probably not the direction you want to go Gord, but I haven't seen any reason yet why the powder coating I had done wasn't a good choice. I had various parts coated on my B that are also prone to corrosion that still look just as good today as they did 20 plus years ago. Something that I would not have been able to say about any paint I have ever used. Since I live in a very dry climate and don't ...

    Mark,

    How about joining MGs On Track? http://www.mgs-on-track.com

    I've heard good things about the track days they organise and you might be able to find the limits in a relatively controlled environment.
    Alternatively take your right shoe off when driving!

    I presume they also reduce tappet noise a little? I've still got a pressed steel one and it does sound a bit like a sewing machine close up. That may not be the rocker cover though!
