George any ideas on this would be appreciated.
at the last minute I decided that I had to go to Grand Rapids MI, right 
past John Twist's shop. I didn't have time to disconnect my carbs from my 
1974 1/2 MGBGT to take with me for the badly needed rebuild so I got a 
local mechanic to come by last night and remove the necessary bits. When 
I got to Twist's I realized that the mechanic had packed only the carbs 
and not the linkages and other fixtures. When I got back tonight I found 
them balancing on the valve cover. Now the question - does anyone know of 
something that these parts could be soaked in to make them look "like 
new" ! I have heard that TOMATO KETCHUP works very well! anyone got any 
regards Padre
PS John is doing very well after his surgery.
