    Wondering if many of you have added a third brake light to your MGB GT? If so, what did you use and how did you mount it. Pictures would be nice.

    I do feel it would be a good safety item to have a third light at the top of the rear hatch window. That should be a bit more visible.

    (I have installed brighter brake lights, but just like having that extra light on the car.

    those petrol fumes must be getting to you

    two different types of petrol tank, one with screws other with bayonet type locking ring - have a look at the usual suspects parts drawings

    I'd guess you'd be best also to marry the correct sender to the correct gauge for accurate readings

    you could use a thicker oil but that might just mask the problem - IIRC some B(?) owners use EP90 (GL-4) successfully in the g/box - but check if this is so for Spridget boxes

    you could try using something like MolySlip - some frown upon these products and others say they work, I'd always try a thorough oil change first

    Geoffery, Not the needles associated with the jet. The float valve, sometimes referred to as the needle valve is in the float bowl cover directly below the fuel intake. One to clean in each float bowl cover.

    checking the level of the g/box oil is part of service work is very often missed as is actually changing the oil

    if you do a thorough oil change of your existing oil
    a) it might help but probably only a little but still worth doing if you don't know when it was last done
    b) with the existing oil drained you can compare the condition of the oil that was in the box to the condition of f...

    I had to wait a number of years before finding a an Aqua coloured (only offered in 1972) and rust free MGB GT.

In my care over the last two years the GT has had a considerable amount of restoration and upgrading. Although the engine block was professionally rebuilt in 1987, I t...
