    Interesting video of a conversion:
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3-aTpsRepWc&list=PLxi6yTSdT3_GnjHv0rOgo6eAsuucZBSiG&index=1

    I wonder how long his halfshafts survive (watch drive off at the end)

    I do fancy buying a solid 1500 for not too much and saving it for an EV conversion.

    Cheers

    We will probably all end up with electric classics, eventually.

    I see that electricclassiccars have a shiny red Midget on their site. A pity itís got odd wings, oops.

    At the rear ...

    We got a big bundle of new units from the local importers when they were having a clear out in the early 80s (still have many) of various applications, plan being to use the new bodies with MG arms and valving.
    Colours were unpainted, black, green, copper (yes, looked Como spec with adjustable valves, sadly all the same side) and even a couple of red ones.

    Just by way of an update, engine all rebuilt (with ACL duraglides) which included a rebore as there was a ridge partly down one bore due to inactivity in the past. Just got to run it in now!

    BTW I learnt from Kent cams that no A series followers are made in the UK now. They are all imported. The quality is variable but Kent and Swiftune have instigated a quality control process to sift o...

    Mike,

    I would have thought it could be put in place of the petrol tank as it'll be redundant.

  • Bob Beaumont21 February 2020
