    just buy a cheap 11mm ring spanner and cut out a section the pipe thickness. The nuts are BSF size but 11 mm is near enough with a ringy.

    Anam

    I walk a lot and now have decent leather Altberg boots. The specialist shop I bought from recommended these two waxes which I use:

    Leder Gris Xtreme (Altberg's own)
    Grangers G wax natural beeswax

    They seem to work.

    Hello I have overhauled my system 1 year ago
    everything works perfectly now
    only one problem with the new hose in the back of the car
    this hose was new but a bit too short
    the car has when unloading from the trailer times deeply sprung
    the hose was then pulled out of the metal piece
    the new hoses are in my opinion 2 cm too short
    I was able to repair it and have now mad...

    One of our guys down here in Victoria drives his car to hillclimb competitions, removes his windscreen, competes, reinstalls and then drives home. Does it all by himself.

    A query for those experienced with the working of the Jackall pump.

    As my Jackall system leaked from fittings at both ends of the tank to pump pipe I emptied the tank and left it to a later date. That date has come around and I am back working on my Jackall system.

    Fixed the leak with liquid thread sealler which I also put around olives and pipe. Partially filled tank, pumped aw...

    Here is a photo of my YT's radiator support bracket through the grill crank handle hole. The distance also includes the thickness of the chassis channel lip.
    (the steel piece is wedged under the upper chassis lips).

    My bracket is orientated with the crank handle bracket at the rear like in John's photo in his first post.
    cheers

    Dominic....read my comments...mirrored exactly. Hope you are enjoying Asian life?

    If I check on Amazon, there seems to be a good selection of LP pumps. I assume these are all for older, carburetted cars. If I'm not mistaken,today's fuel-injected engines use HP pumps, so I'm not likely to make the wrong choice.

    It looks like Facet and Carter have locked-up the $15-$25 market for LP pumps. Is there any preference for reliability?

    Hi again John,
    Can I share this piece of trivia. While I don't know much about MG's, some stuff I do recall from my studies 60 years ago.
    I note your double nut locking has the thinner jam nut on top.
    In a relatively stiff joint, all this you probably know, the jam nut should go on first, to a bedding torque only, then the thicker main nut on last, . This is tightened down while holdi...

  • CALIFORNIA CAR

    A 1970 MGB Roadster that I have owned since 1982. It is complete, original, and was a great ride when running but it has been up on jack stands for about 20 years now and is not running.

    It is a great project car for the right person.

    It is 100% complete and comes with both a hard top, a rag top and lots of other accessories (e.g., two tonneau covers). There are also 2 large box...
