    I came along last year and really enjoyed it. It was well organised and a great day. As my frogeye was out of action, we came in my friend's Alpine.
    Do you think we will be welcome to come along again this year in a classic, if it's not a spridget?

    Thanks, Graham

    George, Peter, Matt. and Frank,


    Thankyou for your above comments. I am really just a trier like nearly all of us who are interested in T type MGs.

    One of the best parts about owning TFs since 1976, is the persons I have met and the friendships made. I do know that one(1) individual cannot possibly alone achieve a complete rebuild/restoration. The process inevitably involves...

    I can NOT recommend the EZ Bleeders! They totally failed the first time I used them. Check the archives.

    Absolutely, but that is one of several advantages to DOT5, it isn't hygroscopic.

    “Try telling him that the remote servo can fail by sucking up all the brake fluid.”

    One of the factors that convinced me that I could do without it.

  • Mike Howlett10 December 2019

    Can't you persuade the owner to change his mind? Like Paul H I have driven MGBs with and without servos and like him I reckon the remote servo makes almost no difference. The unservoed car pulls up strongly without undue pedal pressure. Unnecessary complication in my opinion, and also not a proper item for that early a car. Try telling him that the remote servo can fail by sucking up all the brake...

  • Paul Walbran10 December 2019

    Thanks for the comments, which generally echo what's been rattling around in my head on this. But the owner has specified a servo in the rebuild so we have to do it.
    Yes, well aware of how the mounting angles affect bleeding having struggled to bleed a wrong one!
    BTW the car is European spec rather than US.

    Yes, and that tree in the background is like older men, less leaves, less hair.

    Good Show.

    Get the Ezi-Bleeders, makes bleeding easy, I bought 3 bottles and I have one full one left and part of the second one.
