    I was in the same state spanner wise until recently. The chrome on the old Draper tools that I bought as a student had started to flake, and as they were relatively thin and not very comfortable compared to some of the more expensive singles I have acquired, I decided to go for some really smart new ones. I looked around and ended up buying two imperial sets from I bought a ...

    The fastest road going MG must be the MGB RV8. A fellow TF owner up the road from me has one and has just fitted electric power steering. He says it is a wonderful car.

    Hi John,

    Speak to Andy King. Just Google Andy King MG. He knows as much about MG as anyone else and has had special bell housing cast for 5 speed conversions. He has a huge stock of T series parts and was featured in one of the Discovery TV Car Restoration programmes. I have no connection to him what so ever apart from being a very satisfied customer.

    Hi Tom,
    Excellent news, glad you found details OK.

    Seems to me like something is definitely wrong. I'm wondering if a blockage in another oil feed might cause higher pressure readings on the oil gauge feed?
    Don't want to cause undue alarm, but I've never heard of 100 lbs on an oil gauge in a TD before.

    No, I am not doing a Barney! I have just been given a very nice mobile tool cabinet for my recent birthday, so I am starting to go through all my spanners to lay out neatly in the drawers. However, the cabinet will not be much use 'Wheeler Dealer' style for lowering the engine or gearbox out from underneath!

    It's a stupid question really but what spanner types do most people find best for o...

    I totally concur with Chris on the car capsule. I have one for my prewar Bentely and one for the XJS roadster. They keep the air circulating slowly which prevents any condensation as well as keeping the rodents out of the wiring! One of the best $300 I have spent.
    Cheers, Hugh

    Up here in Maine where the weather can be brutal and lots of mice are looking for a winter home. The car capsule is a good way to defeat them and the weather.
    I would suggest putting in a few packets of Silica Gel for the possibility of moisture being blown in.

    Bleeding the oil pressure line is totally unnecessary.
