    Dustin ( In case you wanted a second opinion ) 

    I would have to agree with Wayne. Clausager's book is outstanding!! This
book will tell you anything you ever wanted to know about the MGB. I would
also suggest getting in purchasing a Bentley manual I have both and use the
Bentley far more often..
