    Success!
    Today I was able to get access to my TD and further I was able to remove the fragments of the brackets from the acceleration bar. I use a small 1/16 jobber to drill holes crosswise into the blocks and with a screw driver I could break the blocks into two parts. Now I have it in hand and can take the measures I need to make new blocks in form as a “sandwich” block. I have to make decis...

    I can only see the body plate there.
    It could be a new dumb iron owing to accident damage, but inspection of the welds would give a clue. It shouldn't be too difficult to stamp it as required. The number bears checking against the various records.

    All of the lights on my 51 TD are LED's except the fog lights. Those weren't converted because I haven't got around to it. I purchased the headlight bulbs from CLASSIC DYNAMO & REGULATOR CONVERSIONS LTD. The rest of the bulbs I purchased from superbrightleds.com. I used the wiring harness from Moss that is for cars to be converted to a system with turn signals (356-150). I also used the controlle...

    Hi All

    When changing the brake shoes I decided to scrape the crud and underseal off the dumb iron to expose the chassis number. Guess what no number. Images attached of body plate and dumb iron.
    Did they forget or is it a new chassis? Any ideas please.

    An imperial quart is not used very much in the UK - though I seem to remember quarts of milk. Imperial pints or gallons were always more popular. However liquids are sold in Litres these days or ccs / mls for lesser quantities - the only exception that I can think of is the good old British pint (of beer), though that almost certainly has a reference standard in ml.

    Supplement 2 is only available on the CD John. It was never released in book form. There is a substantial amount in it, enough for Dave L to consider it appropriate to release it I guess. The CD benefits from having the Original Text linked to each Supplement and each Supplement linked to the other and also back to the original text. The CD is also 100% searchable so if you remember reading so...

    Guenter. Send me your email at the link above and I will see if I can dig it up for you. Most of my pics won’t download on this site due to size

    Blimey, Chris! Vizard would disagree absolutely. His exhaust chapter seems to say that laminar flow on the inside of the bend will likely be disrupted anyway. I read the article you attached - thanks - and what with that and Vizard, my head hurts. I would go and lie down in a darkened room, if I didn't have to cook the dinner.

    As there is a stud like this locking the distributer in XPAWs, it possible to drop it in the hole for the distributor when the distributor is out. May I ask if you have an XPAG or XPAW. The XPAG, at least mine, has a big MG cast at the front left on the block, under the tappet cover. There might also be a sign of a blocked hole for the dip stick on the right side, if it has been moved to the left ...

    I'm with Dave - As a Brit now living over here I was used to the Imperial sizes and now that's not what I get at the store. So just fill it to the full mark and call it quits. Works every time :)

  • MGA 1500 PROJECT

    I have for sale a 1956 MGA 1500 (UK RHD)due to house move. I took it off the road about 34 years ago because I didn't have the money to have the chassis welded.(Divorce, kids, etc etc) I now have the money but not the youth to do it!! At the time I took it off the road it was running OK but needed some cosmetic attention. I had refurbished the gearbox (layshaft,synchro rings,bearings etc.)and the ...
