    Martin, it also made me think that I should check the axle stands more often for cracks etc.

  • Steve Gyles07 August 2022

    Hi. Just dropped over from the MGA site. I run the 18V engine in my A.

    I have the timing chain cover off to renew its oil seal and I am confused. It has the double chain inside.

    The Haynes MGB Manual states: "Refit the oil thrower to the crankshaft nose, concave side forward or the letter F forward (ie away from the engine)......" However, the thrower has the F on the convex sid...

    Good point, Trev. I'm like you, I just use it but I never get under the car with it up on only the jack. Jack stands first, wiggle the car to make sure it's solid and then get to work. Now you've made me paranoid about mine.

    Willy,

    Thanks for posting this. I'd forgotten about the little "incident". Looking forward to part 2.

    I watched the whole video because I'm interested in life in other parts of the world and news broadcasts are a good indicator of local life. Yours isn't as glitzy as our local with all kinds of flashy graphics and stories about cats being rescued from trees and other similar stor...

    For those of us who are into their bikes, can anyone tell me the make of the bike/side car combination in this photo? The phot is just post WW1 about 1920 I think.

    The number plate I think is KC78 which would be a Liverpool registration. The number plate survives on a Smart!


  • Jeremy MkIII07 August 2022

    Interesting video and thanks for posting Willy.

    That's a big ship! Makes the tug look toy-like by comparison. 27 months under the water has taken its toll.

  • William Revit07 August 2022

    At last, they found a ship big enough to lift the tugs out---Got one out today, I thought they were doing them tomorrow and missed it but tomorrow the other one gets lifted, I'll see if I can get a pic or two of the tugs/damage

    I have the timing chain cover off to renew its oil seal and I am confused.

    I have the 18V engine with the timing marks on top of the cover (best thing they ever did) and the improved oil seal. It is a double chain system inside.

    The MGB manual states: "Refit the oil thrower to the crankshaft nose, concave side forward or the letter F forward (ie away from the engine)......" How...

  • T Mason07 August 2022

    Whilst I admit to not being the most safety conscious person around this morning made me think a bit. I needed to remove a wheel on the modern and as usual hauled the trolley jack out and was about to jack the car up when I noticed the pin connecting the saddle to the lifting arm wasnt fully home. On inspection the retaining clip had disappeared. Whilst putting a new circlip on I also noticed one ...

  • anamnesis07 August 2022

    Yep you're right Guy. I should have waited until winter.

    Read today that the price cap might be over 4k by next April. Eskimo's seal skins will be a good bet. Come to think of it, living in an igloo might be too. Lol

  • 1952 MG YB

    Am Trying To Find A New Home For RHN 551 A 1952 YB Saloon.It has belonged to the same owner for 45 years, has all original documents and modern V5. It was taken of the road quite a few years ago with the intention of doing a nut and bolt restoration, however he got the car largely dismantled but never got any further and is now of an age where he can no longer tackle the project. Everything is the...
