    Stephan. (back on the 10th April) Not knowing how old your radiator is, I would opt for a new unit rather than trust a repair. Replaced radiator after my 79-B slipped off the jack pad and went through the bottom tank. That was over 10 years ago and it still looks new with no signs of seepage.
    Yes, by all means replace the sensor along with the 2 rubber seals. If the sensor is still"good", keep...

    Hi ffolks,
    I have seen the past discussions about how to rewire connections when LED tail lights are installed in cars with the Audiovox CCS-100 cruise control (CC). My unit still does not engage though I have made the adjustments (install a 5-point relay) and done the diagnostic tests (including new vac tubing).

    I have actually seen different ways to make the wire connections to the ...

    Thanks for your help Sandy I've been in touch with with an old friend who is going to be able to check out the electrics for me. Thanks again. Derek

    If you have a voltmeter use it to check battery voltage engine not running. should be 12 volts. Check with engine running at 200 RPM and it should read 14.6 volts. If not then you need to have generator and voltage regulator checked by an automotive person that knows what he's doing.
    Ther should be other MG owners in your area that can point you in the right directioon.
    If you were in naple...

    I recall John Allen did a similar fix to cure the oil leak from the speedo pinion - it's on the IMGYTR website.

    I have used a small dremel to cut a groove in the brass to retain the O-Ring - a bit rough but it works. It requires a bit of trial & error to get the o-ring fit snug, but not tight.

    The cable inner is spiral bound wire - make sure the inner is fitted such that it does ...

    I second what Peter is saying. Check your timing. It can make all the difference in the world.

    Regards, Tom

    Pretty sure there should be a small felt "washer" in the inside of the screw cap fitting at the gearbox end to prevent this from happening.

    Tony Slattery - your thoughts?

    Worth mentioning here is our Hint and tip on ensuring hubcaps do not come off accidentally - see https://www.mg-cars.org.uk/imgytr/hints&tips.shtml#Hubcaps_falling_off

    Hi Nigel thanks for the reply and yes I fully intend to use the car as much as possible and enjoy the driving experience. I have the original manual that came with the car and plenty of spare parts. It is a one owner car from new which has to be a record.it has been garaged for a few years and probably just needs to be driven regularly. Thanks again.

    Derek,
    if you haven't got a paper printed copy of the relevant 'Operation Manual' (Driver's Handbook) then you can download this shared PDF. - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxisXBEpc-IWLWwzcVVjeVBRZ2c/view

    Do bear in mind things like oils have changed a lot and improved over time and some modern electronic stuff can be a good improvement to performance and reliability, like a fully...
