This is my first time, so be gentle and still respect me in the
morning. I have a 77 MGB with a 45D distributor that was "stored" for
1. The MG Enthusiast Archives from 1998 suggest using a NGK BPR6E VG
spark plug gapped to .035. I have been told by my local parts retailer
(NAPA) that this plug is not made and is replaced by a plug that is
gapped to .025 with the notation "Do not re-gap". A different parts
dealer (Advance Auto Parts) suggested using a Bosch Platinum 4216 plug
also gapped to .025.
2. I have a 77 MGB with a 45D distributor that was "stored" for
twenty years. I want to replace the fuses before hunting for the many
surprises that I am sure Lord Lucas has left for me. The fuses in the
car (4) are all glass types with thin wire (not the modern blades) and
say "35A 17 amps continuous" on the paper with the glass.
What are the current (no pun intended) recommendations for replacement
plugs and fuses for a 77 MGB? Why the change in gapping on the "newer"
plugs? Can I just use AGC-30 fuses? Nothing in the Buss "British Car
Assortment" seemed to match.
Thank you . . . (I think I need a cigarette.)
