    Here's a picture of my generator which fits and aligns correctly. It mounts in front of both brackets with no washers or spacers. Do you have the correct brackets and does the front one have the proper "S" shape? The "S" isn't obvious in my picture, but there is a slight dogleg toward the front.

    Hope this helps.

    Same issue I wrote you about a month or so ago.

    I have an icon on my desktop to take me to the MGB page. It currently shows up with all the posts listed. Not under the individual title, but each post separate.

    Tried all the settings on the web and could not get it back to the old web page look.

    Running chrome on a microsoft windows 8.1 laptop.

    Matthew, the photo of your unrestored dash shows the bottom of the glove box being painted red and the upper portion which is a cardboard unpainted. How do you think the glove boxes were assembled at the factory? Was the inside surface of the cardboard piece painted or covered with vinyl like the metal bottom piece? Thanks, Lou

    Engine was hauled to the shop this afternoon and installed in the chassis. Went together reasonably easy though I had to pull the steering column back out, remove the front saddle and engine stabilizer bracket in order to clear the R&P protection plate. Once the input shaft mated to the clutch disc it slid together nicely. Re set the engine mount and freed the engine hoist. I then worked on hookin...

    Was at a flea market this weekend and picked up what looks like a new 2 lug spinner for wire wheels. Probably a repro as it is in new condition, but for 15 bucks, I figure it was worth picking up.

    It has the MG logo in the center. I am thinking this is MGTF or MGA. I know my B does not have that.

    Refit the original cans with the halogen lights and everything went together perfectly.

    New Lucas cans do not have the clip at the bottom, they have a flat plate with a screw. Unsure how that is supposed to work on a MGB.

    I do like the new Halogen headlights.

    Can some one post pics of their correct dynamo mounting? I tried to fit it today and don't seem to have an understanding of it's proper position. It would appear that the front dynamo bearing plate needs to be in front of the engine plate to have any kind of pulley alignment. However, when I do that the dynamo rear bearing plate fouls the rear bracket that bolts to the block. Am I missing somet...

    I'm getting further along on the engine and have come to a point that I need some sage advice. I have both of the SU tuning manuals but can't find the info regarding the dashpot oil.. how much and exactly where does it go. I bought these carbs off of eBay as fresh rebuilds. I changed the needles and jets to stock MK II'e as a staring point. Using the Moss jet bearing centering tool I then installe...

    Thanks to all of you for your help and suggestions. I'll check out each of them.

    I'll put the car on jack stands next week and do some tests, then start pulling the carpet, floorboards, and gearbox for a complete tear-down.

    I hope that a local shop will let me assist in the tear-down and rebuild so that I can learn. I would do it alone, but I don't have experience to be able to rec...
