    Matthew -

    I also regret that some of the history of MG has been lost. Blenheim was worth skipping Abingdon.

    You're right about the Cabinet War Rooms. We toured them on a previous visit.

    Bill; Where about in North Carolina are you? I'm down in Wilmington. There are a few TDs here.

    Under the assumption that your door in question is relatively a good fit and that only the latching assemblies are misaligned, I would suggest that you concentrate on adjusting the latching assemblies even to the point of modifying the latching assembly plates . I fore-see no end of problems playing around with the body packing's. This is my humble opinion based on considerable experience . Joh...

    I bought a dedicated digital camera for my TF project and shot over 1300 pictures that served me in good stead. Amazing how some silly shot will pay off later. John Crawley is right - overhauling components, storing them away, then assembling clean ready to go parts on a bare chassis is great fun and satisfying.

    I finally got around to putting Mobil Mobilube 1 SHC 75w-90 into my diff and was very pleased with the results

    after a 50+ mile run on the M1 at 70mph with the hood up the (reduced) diff whine I previously had was gone, I could still hear the diff but not as a whine

    and whether itís because I filled the diff with less oil or the Mobilube is better seal I donít know but Iíve no oil on...

    Dave,
    not everyone agrees and say they notice little difference, worrying if we should ever have to share a road with these people

  • Nigel Atkins21 August 2014

    Bob,
    well what a coincidence, I was just about to put up a thread on the Midget and Sprite technical forum on diff oil

    yes it can wait

    you might have a leak on your diff or it might just be weeps and blow off from over filling

    I've changed my diff oil 6 times in the last eight years and only this last time I have I not overfilled

    it's so easy to overfill as it's diff...

    Agreed Nigel. I replaced those 10 year old tyres last year when I started using the car regularly and I can out brake and corner better than most moderns now.

    Keeping the rubber up to date is part of the requirement for safe speedy motoring even when it looks unworn.

    So far I'm really impressed Dave. They phoned me at 8.30 this morning to check the inlet port size I require and then again at 12:30 to see if I wanted a servo take off fitted. Can't ask for better service than that.

  • 1969 MGB ROADSTER, RUST FREE, NICE

    It is a 1969 roadster. It started with a very longtime owner in California. He kept it and maintained it well. He came to Colorado three years ago. It was maintained here by a very well known british car shop in Denver. It was bought by a friend that was going to take care of the few details it needed (Top, heater valve etc) but he suffered a serious back injury and was unable to work on cars. I b...
