    Nigel, I thought you didn't like getting your hands dirty?

  • David Smith26 August 2016

    thanks Mike, that looks good at the price.
    Why have I not heard of this company before? Some interesting stuff on there. Given they're only a few miles away from Peter May I wonder if they supply him or are in competition against him?

    The sensible thinking members of this forum should consider this item CLOSED and unworthy of further discussion, given the stance of Mr. Akai.

  • M Wood26 August 2016

    Dave O - that's interesting about Leacy.

    David S - seen this one?


  • Graham26 August 2016

    Going back to Malc's post about the MGOC, I feel that it's a club ONLY in name, as in reallity it's a shop selling MG bits.

    By the clever use of the name, it leads people to believe that it's a proper Club as per MASC, but it's not.

    Therefore my view would be MGOC, shop Yes, but an MG Club, no way.

    I agree with Paul concerning the bearing fit. Also, the shaft can accumulate a varnish sort of layer. If the varnish layer is not removed at the end where the bearing goes, prior to putting it back together, it can give a false impression of the fit.

    I dont know if its "Original" but I used that hole for the bracket that clamps the speedo cable.

  • S Akai26 August 2016

    JP, your pretense of sincerity is not fooling anyone. Why don't you answer the question you find so offensive; rather than repeat it like the other's who also cannot answer the question, except to say that the 20w50 works fine? Yes it works fine, I have said so much. Something else might work better to make the transmission last longer. So answer the question. Why use 20w50 when a few gear oil...

    IIRC the BK450 is the Payen number for a Metro Turbo. MOss list this under the Rover/XPart number GUG702560HG.
    Does a 1275 gasket work OK on a 1098 engine?

  • David Smith26 August 2016

    I think you might mean the steel stepped spigot washers, and there's a Belleville washer that stops the rattling... which bits do you need?
