    Axles can bend perhaps as a result with an impact with a kerb or similar.I had a similar issue with a axle and took it to Mallock racing. They used to use A series axles and had a long steel shaft which was turned to just fit in the hubs ends. If if fitted straight through all was well. If not the axie was tube was straightened using a large mallet or similar until the rod could slide cleanly thro...

    I am preparing to clean up the front end of my MGB-GT and wondering if the color to the underside of the fenders should properly match the exterior finish or if it is painted differently, e.g. black. I presume the engine bay can properly match the exterior paint color...and is not supposed to be black?

    One year is all I get from these rubber parts now too. I don't think AS is any better.

    Most of the inboard floorboard fasteners and the transmission housing to the scuttle use these as well. You will also find two of them on the rear deck.

    The are not used where the flooboards are wood screwed into the body timber though. In that case the woodscrews are counter sunk into the plywood.

    Paul, a 1 or 2 amp charger will be mostly OK, but I would prefer to see you use something that trips at around 10 amps. A 2 amp charger may be OK for most things, but will almost certainly trip if you test the horn, as that usually draws around 6 amps.

    My original contract has a written warranty, yes, Mike. The failure as he explained it to me once he had the engine open was a lack of lubrication at the #3 and #4 bearings with #3 taking the worst of it and that the crankshaft was 'toast'. The mechanic has accepted liability to a certain extent...he says I drove the car too long after I saw the oil pressure drop which is a specious argument at b...

    Dave, the wire is white in the harness, it's grey in the wiring diagram I have. As white won't show up in the drawing, they chose grey to represent it. I didn't know at first. Thanks to the more knowledgeable, Were cooking! PJ

    The correct number for a Wix filter for the MGB is 1068. Be aware however that there have been a large number of problems reported with the quality of the threads of these filters (produced in the USA) in recent years and the subsequent damage to the aluminium threads of the filter adapter. I'd recommend you check the threads with a bolt before leaving the supplier.

    Geoffry,looks like I need to find some of these to protect the plywood. I looked at my originals and appeared there was some sort of washer used on them.

    My sprite is a 1964 British racing green mk3 sprite with a 1275 engine and gearbox, the car has a single HIF carburettor and a brake servo fitted.

    - New reconditioned 1275 gearbox
    - New 3 piece Borg and Beck 3 piece clutch kit, the carbon bearing was replaced with a roller release bearing from Pet...


    I recently bought my wife a nice silver TF soft top, unfortunatly she had a slight bump and decided that she didnt want it any more.
    So I have silver 2005 TF with only 30k miles that has easy repairable damage to the drivers side front wing, This would be a cheap nice winter project for somebody that appreciates the car.
    Photos can be sent on request.

    This dark blue, black interior car is a reliable daily driver. It has the usual dings in the paint from regular use but I have no hesitation taking this car on a long drive anywhere. It has been well-cared for and garage-kept. It would be a good candidate for restoration of continuing it's run and a daily-use car. The car is in Idaho, two-hours east of Boise. It's priced reasonably at $4500.
