Proper MG sells the borg clutch kit for ~$100.  You might be able to
get it even cheaper some where else too... It is worth the effort now
to save it later.

I have a few pictures online that I took when I pulled a '77 engine and
~70 OD from a '70 GT, cleaned it up and re-installed it in a '70B.  I
took pictures of the OD wires to use as a reference for me later.  They
are online at:  

and go on for a page or two of the next page buttons.
