    Anam, yes I had forgotten about e scooters. Since the council introduced a scheme round here a while back they are now becoming a real problem. It's not just riding them either as it is now becoming a problem of people just dumping them on the pavement anywhere. Whoever the bright spark who thought up the idea is, he must have been on another planet if he thought people would park them in the desi...

    The original oil spec for the ribcase is 30 weight oil. The g/box won't get anywhere near as hot as the engine so it could be argued that a 20/50 will stay nearer 20 weight meaning a monograde 30 *might* be better. I don't know, just a thought. I think the reason for engine oil is to allow the synchro rings to work I.e. a thicker oil might reduce the friction that they need. That does suggest t...

    I think that the engine you want rebuilt is basically the one I built for you some years back. Unfortunately, other than the suggestion of several Pro builders I cannot offer to rebuild it this time as, subject to H.M.Gov lifting or imposing restrictions, I am holidaying in both September & October with a commitment to the Masc stand at NEC in November.

  • GuyW31 July 2021

    It does need to be an interactive process, almost certainly iterative between the specifier and the designer. As with building design, there does need to be an opportunity for the customer to understand what is feasible and for the designer to understand what the customer's range of requirements are and how those might change in the future. But I think the key to getting the process right is to ha...

    The microphone sits very nicely in the gap between the steering column and the instrument binnacle.

    (Oh and please indulge me: note coincidentally the lovely steady slow idle on the tachometer, after returning from a run. I was about to open the gate).

  • anamnesis31 July 2021

    Well that's more than pretty goood then.

    When someone reaches very old age and gets interviewed on tv, they get asked "what's your secret?".

    100k? What's your boxes secret Jeremy? 😁

  • T Aczel31 July 2021

    I had always lusted after the "top of the line" radio option for the Australian MGBs, the Astor Diamond Dot car radio, (labelled " BMC All Transistor"). They came up for sale rarely and when they did they were generally in neglected condition, and expensive. (They are collectable and sought after).
    I wound up sourcing an imitation of the original, complete with modern internals, providing AM,...

    All of the above, but add in to Guy's rant, it's not just cyclists who are arrogant. Albeit not on the roads, but mothers with prams, and people in disability 3/4 wheelers, who come straight at you on the pavement and just expect you to move out of the way.

    In general then, some people, given the opportunity, become gits. Stating their rights in the highway code will only make them worse....

    Put it in the bottom. Your back will thank you.

    I ran without the lumbar pads for 15 years, not knowing it should be there. When I rebuilt the seats next time around, the lumbar pad was available, so I put it in there, and it is WONDERFUL.

  • 1953 MGYB

    My MGYB for sale. Older restoration (1996). Gradually improved in my 16 years of ownership, and still room for gentle improvement, so not concours! Re-covered seats, and recently re-wired. Has just been serviced for post covid motoring with new starter motor, radiator, brake cylinders. Has original YMG number plate. Will sell for less than 11,000 Agreed Value Insurance.
