1. Re: Tires for midget...Help (score: 1)

Why is 155-13 just "wrong". I have them on my 1500 at the moment, and don't see any ill effects as far as I can tell ? I've always wondered just what tyres everyone uses on their midgets. I know 145

Well I have to say that I absolutely completely very muchly agree with you. As a 26 years old Midget driver, I'm sure I don't class as an old fogy, but I'd go with an old car any day. The new MG to

How's about cars are for enjoying ? I thought that was the idea. If I wanted a car simply to get me to places to do things - I'd buy a FORD. Until they break, then you can just chuck them away becau

Having just fitted a new steering rack to my 77 midget, and carefully followed the alignment procedures in the workshop manual, I find that the steering is now very heavy and tight. So tight that it

Firstly, as you said, no welding. The tank comes off pretty easily - four bolts if I remember correctly. Try to drain the tank if you can, which will make it easier, then support it on a couple of ax

Oh dear oh dear, I see a war starting. The midget is definately a far superior car if you want fun, low-cost, fun motoring. The fun factor is the main one. It's a small car that handles a lot better

This might seem like a silly question, but there's a silly reason behind it. If I were to run my car with the alternator plug not plugged in to the alternator, would I do any damage to the alternator

Well no it doesn't. It should come on when the ignition circuit is live but the engine isn't running - ie just when you're starting up. It doesn't ever come on at all if you unplug its power feed fr

Have you checked the speedo itself. I think they're renowned for being a bit dodgy. I know that mine wavers around by about 10MPH all the time - I think this is a well known attribute. I wouldn't be

Try spraying it all around with WD40 or similar, if not tap it sideways with a mallet to try to shift it. It that fails, take the filler plug out the top of the housing. You can then get a bar or pe
