    Nice!

    It's a beautiful car.

    The airline cars of the thirties have to be some of the prettiest ever built.

    I do have a problem with advertisers who sell cars and then try to dictate how the new owner should store or use the vehicle.

    I'm afraid if you sell something you have no control over it's future. If the new owner spends $150,000 on it he/she is perfectly entitled to do what he...

    Rates are free for small units anyway but I have noticed that Cornwall (EU Objective 2 status) is quite a bit cheaper. I'm seriously thinking of moving out of Devon completely to somewhere cheaper... but it would be a hell of a wrench after 50 years in the county..

    When you do a full rebuild use OEM iron piston rings if you can find them. The rings in you engine are probably original and that is why you don't have a ridge. They are slightly softer than the cylinder bores and you generally don't get a ridge because the iron rings do not wear the bores as bad

    Peter can probably tell us if they are still available. I believe the brand is something like "...

    Charley,

    I ran the Crane/Allison system for years, even replacing on or two of them. They do get hot and stop working. For years on extremely hot days I might be driving along fine and, randomly, the car would just quit like you turned the key off. Wait five minutes and fine again.

    The last time the system died I replaced it with a Piranha system which fits completely inside the dist...

    Beautiful, Lew. Looks like that restoration is completed! Nice paint work in particular...

    As Paul said, you need a PCV. And what Les said is true as well - you need to have a slight crankcase negative pressure.

    Long ago I replaced the SU's on my '73 with a Mikuni PHH-44 and had to figure out how to make crankcase ventilation work correctly. Like you I have the crook neck pipe off the back of the rocker cover to go to the charcoal canister. As a point of observation, the end on t...

    I've been very satisfied with the Kumhos that I bought a couple of years ago. Wearing well, handle well, good price, etc. Bud

  • MG TF CONVERTIBLE - ONE OF THE LAST BRITISH EDITIONS

    “Here i am parting with my MG TF, this car is a true collectible being one of the last British Made editions. There is one key and one fob with this car, there are some tiny bumps and scratches and the fob needs re set to use the central locking (I am unsure how to do this, but there are forums and experts). This car doesn't come with a spare as standard but there is a can of repair sealant provid...

  • FOR SALE NAVY BLUE MGF CREAM LEATHER PROJECT OPPORTUNITY

    For sale is my lovely MGF 1.8 car with 82k on the clock.
    The engine appears to be absolutely sound, lovely when driven.
    The car needs some work and I am appealing to an avid MG'er to take on this beautiful car and restore her to the original treasure she once was and can be again
    The car starts but does not drive, this is due to the hydraulics in the clutch, it could be something as silly...
