Yes, it did cross my mind, but I didn't know if there was anyone looking for them. Is there a shortage of old gauges in the states ? If anyone is interested, I can have a look around for some more,

Thanks for the idea. I had a look last night, but the starter solenoid on a midget is a seperate part, screwed onto the bulkhead. I couldn't see any way to get it apart, although even the outside lo

Well I finally decided that enough was enough, and it was time to give my Midget a tune up. Normally I leave this to the local garage, being a bit worried about messing it up, but not this time. I sp

Well I'm glad to know that I'm not alone on this one. I'm pretty sure the car will fail the MOT in January on this "little difficulty". The handling seems OK at the moment. I'm not chucking it aroun

Is this recall just for MGBs or are midgets covered too ? And is it just US cars, or is GB similarly covered ? I could use some new belts in the Midget as they're all dirty and grubby now. Andy ** An

I think most people name their cars once they get to the stage of realizing that there must be some will involved in making it stop working / leak oil. Also, many old cars seem to have personalities

If this was the main problem, wouldn't it be easier to just take the steering wheel off and turn it round a bit, then fix it back on to the boss. Probably a ten minute job at the most. I guess that w

I seem to remember writing a longish story on how to fold a midget top down a while ago that I sent to this list, I can probably find it somewhere if there's interest. The web page idea is nice - I'v

It must be the fact that I have a moto-lita wheel and boss on there that does it then. I can take my wheel off in about 5 mins. Just undo the 12 or so bolts holding the top of the boss on, then get a

<SNIP> OK, yes I believe you can adjust a fuel gauge, but I'd have to check my books to be sure. Mine does (or did when it worked) a similar thing. Originally it would go down to well below empty, bu

It's so that you americans can claim to have everything bigger than we do. By using smaller measurements you can automatically say that you use more gallons than we do, weigh more pounds, (which is

I tried your plan when I first bought my midget. About three weeks after buying it I got a flat on a sunday evening on the beachfront in Wales. There's probably no worse place to try to find a new ty

I can share your feelings on being tall. I'm 6'4" and drive a midget, so even less room. It's fairly tricky getting my long legs (34" inside leg) around the wheel, and as you say, it's impossible to

Hi there, in my limited experience waxoyl does set in the spray tube but once the initial hard bit has been forced out the rest flows freely. Of course you end up wasting the harder bits, but what ca
