Following the latest spam
posting on the BBS (Bulletin Board Service), it has now been agreed with Mike Plumstead and MGEnthusiast.com (who run this great service for us) that the BBS will be
secured and you will need to have a registration and log-in as a member to post
to the BBS from here onwards. We are sorry this has become necessary, but
hopefully this will not dull your enthusiasm to post. You can use the "Log
in to post to the BBS" to make this easier, once you have a membership
established and your PC will use a "cookie" to remember your details by after
you have put them in (if you check the box when you log in) the first time.
All you will have to do subsequently is to put in the first letter of your
chosen log in name and an auto-complete suggestion will drop down. Click
on that and if you also chose "Remember the password" association that will
complete for you too. If you forget your password, you will need to use
the "Remind me" link.
Apologies for any

yesterday was the longest day, or for our friends in the Southern hemisphere,
the Longest night! As I was browsing through some back number copies of
the MG Abingdon Classics I came across a great little "Problem
Solvers" diagnostic which has been converted into a PDF. Not
all of it is 100% applicable to the Y Type, but much of it is, and it will be
useful to any classic car owner for diagnostics. It has been added to the
Technical Data page too. Hopefully you managed to get out in your Y to
celebrate the longest day (or night!).
