Ahh, you have discovered yet another joy of MG driving.  Muffler
bearings have a life of about 5 minutes, or one rev to 5000 rpm,
which ever comes sooner.  Perhaps the neoprene bearings last a little
longer, but they still wear out quickly.

Most people just give up and stop replacing them, which explains the
"distinctive sound" of an MG.

Speaking of common problems, my blinkers are on the fritz again.
Anybody know a cheap source of fluid?
