To shorten a story that I could stretch out to epic length.
I got my '69 MGBGT running Friday night. She ran beautifully, but had
a couple of details that needed to be fixed. I fixed them, drove her
to a friends house for breakfast. She was really running nice. I had a
birthday party to go to, decided to drive the MG. I got two miles up
the road and noticed that my oil pressure read 0psi. It was dumping
from the back of the spin on filter adapter. The bolt was just a
little bit loose, so I tried tightening it.
Investigation this morning shows that the aluminum oil filter adapter
is busted (fortunately not the block). Which adapter to people
prefer, the one with the filter below, where it is a little harder to
get to, or the one with the filter above where it can make a bit of a
mess when you change oil.
Also, does anybody in, or near santa cruz have a filter adapter for an
MGB that I can buy, or "borrow" until BMS is open, so I can drive my
MG with the new paintjob, motor and transmission on this beautiful
I've found something worse than oldies station that play the music I used to
listen to. Oldies stations that play the "new" music I used to complain about.
