    Then the mould has the hole in the wrong place and they'll all be wrong.

    If the hole is forgotten then it'd need drilling out.

    Again, just because it's a part for a MG you're possibly giving it and its production a level of sophistication above what it deserves and actually happens, and this isn't the 1960s this is after the race to the bottom of price and quality for classic car par...

    PaulH,
    I'm surprised at you, surely the source of the problem needs to be known rather than just replacing parts. 😁

    I'm pulling your leg, hopefully the electronic ignition and coil are history and if it was one or other of them, or both, that were faulty within themselves, or as a pair, I'd not worry about it but this car has a history of wiring concerns so obviously if there ...

    Thanks Willy, I should have explained that unmarked pix are both sides of same ring as per numbers on paper. Anyway, what you say makes sense, I will proceed as you suggest.

  • Nigel Atkins15 May 2021

    Have you assembled them fully yet though Dominic?

  • Trevor Harvey15 May 2021

    No fixing has ever been on the arm rest or centre console since I have owned the roadster (14 years),are they available or maybe I will have to make something up but would be handy if I could see a picture of what it should look like. Thanks .

    Hi All,
    In the Octagon "Bulletin" this month it states they are identical, not quite so. The Body is but the arms are not so you would have to draw the arms and links off both units and swap i have checked this info with Croydon vintage and veteran shocks who agree.

    recently bought two new ones from MSC.parts, and they seem fine

  • William Revit15 May 2021

    Adrian-
    I'd say you've got the four bottom rings
    (Nos 1-4 as you have numbered them)sorted with the oil control rings able to be fitted either way up, the next 2 are marked so they're ok --This only leaves the top ring-----
    Not sure if that's a taper on the outside edge or just a reflection in the pic.
    Being unmarked I'd imagine it can go either way up
    From your pic it looks to...

    Thanks Ken,
    I just tried to open the link I put in to the post and it just took me back to this current thread instead of the archived one I mentioned.
    Here`s another link which may work

    If not, you can find it if you search in the MGA Archive under...

  • paulh415 May 2021

    Or as John is apparently in the USA maybe one section of the dual brake master is full and the other is empty.

    On this type the section for the front circuit is furthest from the driver.

    If there is a leak the brake balance warning light should have come on. If the front circuit has failed you would certainly know about it, less so if it's the rear circuit that has failed. But it m...
