    My wife (5'2") put's a pillow behind her when she drives the MGB. She's never driven the TF or the now gone TD.

    Pedal extensions were available for these cars so I would think some supplier has them.
    They would be fairly simple to make if you have access to a workshop.

    Amazon delivers in the tundra too... and at only 17 this is the essential tool to do the job, just as Prop says

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ignition-Timing-Strobe-Light-Inductive/dp/B00BQ9UY6E/ref=sr_1_3?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1425320592&sr=1-3&keywords=timing+strobe

    And on the 123 you can choose the advance curve - did you read the instructions?

    Better always check on the postage from the UK, and especially Australia. Seems everyone is in on the postage scheme. Had a box arrive today from AS. Postage on the flat rate box was $5.25. They charged $9.15.

    Wondering if you folks have any suggestions. I bought a 52 MGTD and am a small female having "shorty" issues. I realize I probably need to block the seats so I can properly see over the windscreen, but not sure what I can do to reach the clutch. Can't move seat any further forward. Suggestions?

    My experience was the holes I pre-drilled based on my home made diagram did not line up with "reality" in all cases! If I were to do it again I would get the boards so they fit perfectly in the car BEFORE I drilled any holes! I would then drill pilot holes from underneath the car up into the boards. I even made a hardboard mockup of the boards but when I used the real thing not everything lined u...

    Declan,

    as far as I know, the TR2 and the MGA1500 shared the same splines on the input shaft as the TD2.

    For those, who want to make the tool themselves, here is the way I did it many times:
    Take a large bolt and cover the end with masking tape, so that it fits snugly into the spigot bearing.
    Mark the position of the clutch drive plate on this bolt and cover it in this position...

    Chris, Im probably a month from ordering the top and tonneau as I a amidst the engine build and am having some set backs. Still need to finish paintwork on the wings and bonnet but the weather has been too cold for even my infrared lights to properly cure the paint. Waiting for my pistons from Arias to arrive this week and the final machining to be done. then the build should get back on track.

    Here is a comparison of the std C39 PV2 dynamo from a TF and the low cost alternator (costs 139.95 with Tacho drive in the UK). The alternator is slightly wider. The old pulley wheel and fan drop straight on to the shaft and woodruff key. The spring washer provided is too thick to get the nut more than half on, so I substituted with a thinner plain washer. The main terminal in a 9.5mm male bl...
