    George: I tried that to no avail. It really boils down to "when" the fast idle plate moves. Moving the jet lever linkages by hand via the bottom connecting link, I have to get to about 3/32 - 1/8" of jet showing before the fast idle linkage moves upward. I think there is too much free play on the front carb jet lever pivot point to move the fast idle rod earlier. That's all I can come up with for ...

    Watched "A history of Britain" on the Beeb tonight.

    That history may end tonight.

    I know I have a dodgy sender unit, which I think suffers the intermittent shaft bearing earthing problem.
    Sometimes its just nice to get a positive idea of how much fuel you have in there. To this end I use a straight piece of 1/4" dia wooden dowel, I happened to have, which reaches the bottom of the tank, simply marked at the full position. The wet fuel shows clearly as the dowel is darkened b...

    Not sure where you went with that one Prop. Certainly not to the highlands.

  • Kevin McLemore18 September 2014

    Good idea, Paul. I should think that perhaps it may just be a direct swap of the bits. MG weren't big on updating or changing components if they didn't have to!

  • Prop and the Blackhole Midget18 September 2014

    In the 70s we would go on family vactions like that, dad always drove those at night. I can remember seeing the faint glow of a flashing red light at a cross road intersection and dad driving 90 mph at 2am and FINALLY reaching the intersection 5 to 10 minutes later

    That road also remind me of the "Kansas national Forrest" .... its just "A" tree

    Nero or gangis Khan comparison would be a refreshing feminine hygiene moment.

    Its true that hitler was a fluent speaker ... but he simple reverberated what the germans where already feeling, experiancing and enduring at the hands of the anti cut genital haters....lets face it for a nation of non jews to rise up and kill off 6.5 million, its not because they disliked harry hannaka for deli...

    Indeed, Paul - any port in a storm!

    And Rod, yes, that's exactly how it gets assembled. The black bracket has a slot in it that slips over the flange on the bulkhead and the extended bit has a bolt, shown in your photo, that then goes through the bottom of the battery box and it also clamps the angled support tube. The wood block in the battery box needs to be hollowed out a bit to allow...

    Your spec looks fine. You will need a 1098 or 1275 clutch fork with a 1098 clutch release bearing. the 3/4 slave will be fine.

  • PROJECT MGF AT LONGBRIDGE

    Too many other projects and recent illness means I cannot continue to restore this car as it deserves. A once-cherished MGF has had new front wishbones, front discs, brake fluid, hubs, dampers, windscreen, glass hood, brake pipes and tyres fitted.
    It needs the clutch bleeding and the underfloor coolant pipes replacing (available). Spare painted driver's door and other parts available. The ...
