Augh. Well, I've hit yet another speed bump in rebuilding my '74. For
those that read my last post about misaligned timing sprockets, since
the shims are .006", I'm aiming for +/- .003" and ordered a stack of
them to handle the .050" difference.
But now I'm stuck on a new problem. My Crankshaft pulley is cracked.
Not around the rubber ring, but out from the corners of the slot for the
woodruff key. Looks like some meat-fisted mechanic was prying off the
pulley at one time and actually cocked it over, cracking the hub at it's
Anyway, I haven't found a place that stocks the dang thing, so I'm
scouring junkyards in the Charlotte, NC (USA) area. No surprise to me,
I haven't found one in the area that has any MG's at all. (Nobody in
Charlotte dares own a car more than five years old. It's a very strange
place that way.)
So now I'm back to pleading at the list-masses:
1) Those of you who live in North and South Carolina, where do you go
for used parts?
2) Anybody know where to get a crankshaft pulley for an 18V?
'74 B - no comment.
