    Butch thanks. I have the pump on the right which is self priming and no need for a priming cap.

    Hello Joe. The early pumps with the integral filter did not have the priming port. The priming port was added at xpag/td2/20972 according to the Robert Bentley book. I've attached a picture of the three styles of pumps.

    Yes.....its totally original as long as you can prove it but you have to have kept every piece of documentation in a book with the other owners documentation...other wise its complete bullshit!

    So did you keep yours?

    Moooowhhoooohahahhahahaaaaaa!

    I would most definitely not drive very far or very fast on 17 year old tires. The closest radial to the original size is 155R15. This was also the standard size for air cooled VW Beetles and thus should be pretty easy to find.

    I just rolled over 84xxx miles a few moments ago and it dawned on me there aint much on this car that came from the mg factory

    basically... most of the body and the engine block and the rear diff and part of the wiring harness

    and the rear view mirror...beyound that nothing else has survived time

    so is it fair to say the car has 84xxx miles when so little is left

    oh and...

    Don't know what caused your flat but I always use this site to decipher tire measurements and alpha designations.

    I was clearly an idiot and accidentally touched the edge of the battery compartment with the charger. Checked the battery, was low, charged it, and still just a click when trying to turn it over. I have the red ignition light. I checked and cleaned terminals, and checked all of those brown wires leading to the solenoid. Tried to jump the solenoid with my hammer, which also didn't work, so I bought...

    I was going to say that I have some spare hubs, but it sounds like you don't need them.

    I did have a problem with rear hub bearings on the race car - they would have a lot of play in a very short time.

    I ordered a large number of RHP bearings through a friend who had an account with a bearing supplier, but they were so good that I only actually fitted one pair and the othe...

  • W Chandler01 June 2016

    I just discovered a spontaneous 2 inch rupture in a rear tire. The size is 165/R15 86T. There had been some brake fluid on the tire. The leaking brake cylinder has been replaced last week. This is a tubeless tire. Is the brake fluid to blame or just old tires?

    Is this the replacement size? I read that some use a 165/80R15, but I don't know what the "80" means.

    With this sponta...

  • Dave O'Neill 201 June 2016

    Sounds like a bargain.

    I stocked up on Mann filters for my B last year, as they were highly recommended on the MGB BBS.

    I bought ten of them at around 2.40 each.

    The current best price on ebay being 3.99 and the worst is 13.10

    I can't believe that anyone would pay that much for the same item!
