Hi all, hope someone here can help me. I have just acquired a 1927 MG 14/40.
The car is in in original condition, but is in very good condition for  a
car 75 years old. Previous owner didn't believe in restoring cars. It was
driven regularly up until 18 months ago when it was stored in a barn.
Oil looks fine but I intend to drain and change oil as a precaution. Will
also change points and plugs and all rubber such as radiator hoses which
have cracked. However the engine turns freely using the crank handle.
What steps should I take before attempting to start the engine?
Is anyone aware of any resources which are good source of information on
these pre-war cars?
