Re: Hello and Help :-)

Do the head gasket yourself, it will save you money and provide a great sense of satisfaction. Always buy the reccommended type of after market gasket and ideally get the head checked and skimmed if necessary if there is any warpage.


Ebay for window guides and rubbers.

Re: Think I’ve bought a nail.

Do you have reason to believe the car dealer has misrepresented the car to you in any way. For instance had you bought the car purely on their description in an email and only seen the car when you went to collect it; if so the distance Selling Regulations might apply. If you had seen and driven the...

Re: restoration

MGB bonnets are approximately 42" Wide by x 50" long (bumper to glass). As far as Im aware all MGB bonnets are the same size, Roadster and GT, Chrome Bumper & Rubber bumper cars. The MBC bonnet had a bulge to provide extra clearance for it's 6 cylinder engine but was otherwise the same dimensions an...

Re: mgf re map ?

One thing that can be guaranteed is a remap will definitely be more effective on your car than a BGT 1.8. Oddly no one seems to be able to find the OBT port on that for some reason.

Re: Sun roof in mgbgt

It depends on what sort of sunroof and what year the car was. If sunroofs were an option in your car's year of manufacture then it should be fine to fit one so long as it is the same type as the original sunroof or looks visually close to it. At the time dealers would usually be up for fitting a sun...

Re: MGB V8 front suspension

My best bet would be its because the replacement springs are the longer ones that were supplied on Rubber Bumper cars and that the springs you have taken off were the shorter ones that were standard on Chrome Bumper cars. I changed my BGT over to chrome bumper springs a while ago and was surprised h...

Re: Value

Can you provide some m,ore information about the car,. Oddly enough most enthusiasts haven't subscribed to the motor manufacturers database so are unable to find all the details of your car from the VIN. It also doesnt help with assessing condition etc. A description and some pictures would be good .

Re: New Member 1970 BGT

You have a great looking BGT there. It is a very sensible choice after owning a landrover for several years. The MG is a simple car that is a delight to work on and greatly benefits from a good source of new and second hand spares. Seeing a nicely sorted BGT does make me want to get back onto workin...

Re: ..... ive dropped a bolt into clutch bell housing ..help pls!

Undo the engine to bellousing bolts, loosen the engine and gearbox mounts and gently prise a gap between the engine and gearbox. Make the gap wider at the bottom and put a couple of wedges (e.g handle of a screwriver, half inch thick bit of wood etc) to space the bellousing away from the back of the...
