    I believe there should be a small bevel on the side that goes to the flywheel to accomodate any small fillet from the machining of the step.

    Yes, I think its a MGA/MGB ring gear not a TD. Confirm what William said, but I wouldn't use it myself.

    Many thanks Will. I'm sure Barney won't mind.

    Willie,
    The hardened washers on my HRG- Derrington head are 7/8" (21.2 mm) diameter x 1/8" (3 mm) thick - these are the same size that you thought they should be (in the ceramic coating thread). My head studs are 7/16" dia (original MGB are 3/8" I recall) so may give the illusion of the washers being smaller.

    I also found the HRG service bulletin advising head stud torque to be 32-35 ...

    From what I can find there are two ring gears available and two matching bendix drives
    As long as you have a new bendix that's matched to your new ring I guess it will be ok , but I'd check up just to make sure

    Peter. I have two glove boxes, one with a hole in it, so I can use it for practice. Sounds easy.

    Willy,
    I am also not sure of the science behind ceramic coating the extractors other than reduction in engine bay temperature (maybe not so big an issue with a cross flow head especially if a cold air box was fitted). My other reason for pursuing is aesthetics - a nice shinny exhaust looks better than a rusty one!

    Interesting in Peter's book "How to ...MGB four cylinder engines" P105...

    Can someone please supply a Part Number or specification, for an oil seal - front hub Wire Wheel.
    Moss catalogue part No: 120 - 600. (1600)

    Barry.

  • William Revit10 December 2018

    I don't think that machined side is a leed in, the taller side goes towards the gearbox i believe and is the side the bendix comes at it from
    happy to be wrong --I'm no t type expert
    That ring gear looks wider than your original from the pics , might pay to check up and make sure it's not an MGA one

  • MG ZR 160 FOR SALE

    Hi all

    After 6 years I am looking for a good new home for my beloved MG. She’s an old lady now and needs a lot of work done. She still runs incredibly well for her age. She will need a buyer with money and time and hopefully a love for these dying breed cars. Although she has her problems, she still runs too well to scrap. I don’t see many of this spec anymore so seems such a shame to le...
