    Does anyone make a high quality replacement radiator for a tf-1250 or tf-1500? THANKS MICHAEL.

    Today, one of our club members (Central Virginia British Car Club) organized a fun run. It was organized so that we continued to respect a policy of Social Distancing but we still wanted to enjoy the freedoms made possible by those who made the ultimate sacrifice. We took the opportunity to recognize those who gave their lives to protect our freedom with "A Salute to Memorial Day" fun-run!

    Rich,

    Here you go: http://www.mg-tabc.org/library/ChevyRearSeal.pdf

    Although how enough Permatex can get thru the screen in the oil pan to harm the oil pump baffles me.

  • Glenn Mallory25 May 2020

    The scraping noise in 4th in the 1971 Ribcase when coasting downhill always bothered me. I had the original rebuilt a couple of times when the car was fairly new and even installed a new one in 1977 that I bought in the UK. I found that running 75W-90 synthetic seemed to quiet it down some and provided a longer service life. At 200,000mi, I installed the Rivergate Datsun and it has been much qu...

  • William Revit25 May 2020

    I doubt there were any lhd cars built here-
    and as far as Japan goes I would imagine they would have been full import UK cars
    Even countries just north of Aust had full imported cars
    found this---

    There were 1184 Midgets assembled in Australia between November 1967 (on sale early 1968) and December 1971. The production was split between the initial UK GAN4 model coded YGGN4 or YGN4...

    Back in the 90’s I received this Lucas service sheet from John Lawson from memory, it shows 2 x 35amp fuses, which my car has.

  • CR Tyrell25 May 2020

    The main power fuse should be the 35 amp fuse. Just remember the 35 amp is a surge 35 amp. Of the normal fuse found locally here I use a 20 amp fuse.

    Is the 25 amp fuse an original type fuse? I am not sure of the different ratings of fuses but. the originals were rated at their surge capacity.

    Memory is not good, but I think a 35 amp fuse blowes at 17 amp continuous.

  • Rob Storer24 May 2020

    Thanks guys, confirmed what i thought. Engine an gearbox out again. Layshaft makes sense as it's fine in 4th.

  • Dave O'Neill 224 May 2020

    If the gears and bearings are in good condition, there shouldn’t be any noticeable whining or wailing.

  • L B Rose24 May 2020

    I've used both smooth and rib case boxes over the years and the latter whines slightly under load, but should not do so on overrun. First on either normally wails like a banshee, but indirects are quiet on smooth and whine a bit on ribs. I would take a look at layshaft thrust washers.

  • 1949 MG TC - COMPETITION STYLING FOR SALE

    This 1949 MG TC was purchased by us in May 1971. The previous owner had purchased the car from the second owner, whom had purchased the car from an American pilot. So we believe this car was originally exported to the USA as some of the documents included american wiring diagrams.

    The car has undergone a complete restoration and since has been registered with the MGT registry since 2016. ...
