Welcome Jon. Plenty of good books and videos.
Clausager's "Original MGB". Porter's "MGB Restoration Manual". The Bentley
Bible -- "The Complete Official MGB". There's also "MGB - The Illustrated
History" and on and on and on. A good place to check is www.books4cars.com.
They often have good prices.
There are also several very good videos.MGB Maintanence Video, The MGB Video,
MGB Engina Rebuild Video and MG's Across America. Moss carries all of these,
and they can also be had from www.ewacars.com.
First thing is to get a Moss catalog. There are a couple of suppliers on
this list and they can help with parts and %off Moss prices. Also, for
comparison purposes (and also for good alternate sources) get catalogs from
Victoria British, The Proper MG, Brit-Tek, and I'm probably missing one or
This list will be a great source when it's time to buy the engine (or, if you
want to get into a debate about whether your car is ideal for a V8 conversion
