    Bristol, as other cities have done, is to introduce a ULEZ (Ultra Low Emission Zone) in November. I have just noted that vehicles of historic interest are exempt from charges for all such zones AIUI. However, I presume this only applies to classics that are taxed as VHI vehicles so, if yours isn't then it will not be exempt. Another reason to register as a VHI.

    The TF bumper has a different profile than the TD.
    The TD is a smooth curve but the TF has a flatter profile with the top section slightly wider than the bottom.
    As far as I know there is nobody supplying them.

    Has anyone compared the internals of a "County" brand clutch slave with, say, an AP Caparo? What is better - is it more precise machining, better seal or both?

  • paulh417 August 2022

    First off is the tach jumping about with the misfire? If so then it's an ignition LT problem, if not then HT, fuel or if it had points then condenser.

    Is it backfiring in the exhaust? If so that tends to indicate an ignition problem with a good combustion igniting unburnt fuel in the exhaust.

    The two could be associated, how long between the to symptoms first starting? An el...

    I had the same problem on my 1500, cheap ebay clutch slave cylinders dont last more than 12 months.

    I bought a genuine (Lockheed I think) one from https://www.powertrackbrakes.co.uk/ and I havent had problems since.

  • TPM Timothy17 August 2022

    I have a early 74 MGB which is running terrific but my brother has a 74 that has been plagued with issues. First off there is a miss in the engine at all RPMs. Here is what has been replaced. There is a new electronic distributor, new coil, new wires, new distributor cap and rotor, new wires and plugs. The miss is still there. Reinstalled old wires temporarily to make sure we didn't get a bad set,...

    It's only recently via the news, that I realised Canada was still guilty of terrible treatment of the indigenous peoples.

    As you say, still a long way to go. It surprises me that blm has become a global 'thing', but not the continuing fate of original peoples in the US and Canada.

    I always loved watching 'westerns', but when it came to 'cowboy and indian films', I always wanted...

    I think the front same for both, with the crank hole. The TF rear has holes for the license tag mount plate. George

  • Bruce Cunha17 August 2022

    Ok, you peaked my curiosity.

    What is the difference between the TD and the TF bumper? Also, is there a difference between the front and the back?

    Your welcome to my chrome back bumper. It is in pretty good condition.

  • W A Chasser16 August 2022

    Jim Silva. Contacted me several days ago and is donating a pair of TF seat frames to this project. A special thanks goes out to him for this gracious offer.

    Also another forum member called me today to say he has a metal dash amongst his spares that hell bring up to me in exchange for some assistance with his XPEG overhaul. Im only lacking an original TF valve cover, horns, and front...
