Seems like you might be coming back into the fold.  :)

I am sure you know the bad thing to watch out for is rust.  $1000 doesn't 
sounds good to me if it is free for rust, but I don't know what they go for up

I don't know anyone up in MN that works on MGs, however, I do know people who 

I am forwarding your question on to the MGs email list.  Someone there will 
know.  You should come and join us.  There are about 400-500 people on the 
list world wide. Everyone from beginers to shop owners are on the list.
Someone can almost always answer this type of question.

Join at:   Just dig around for the mgs mailing list.

Listers, Dave is not yet on the list, so when you reply, use reply to all!
