The manifold is one of the two styles fitted to MGBs with 2 SUs. (Gee, ain't that a clever statement! You'd come to that conclusion yourself, I gather......) Trouble is, the only difference between

How sad that the MG company should allow its advertising agency to produce such a pathetically sophomoric piece of rubbish! In the hey-day of MG, "Safety Fast" was a logo that told the public that MG

The bases are different where the lenses attach so you cannot put late lenses on an early base (or vice versa). The entire unit will, however, interchange without problem. Lawrie British Sportscar Ce

If the whistle really is coming from the brake booster, the greater problem (beyond the slight loss of brake boost - not a danger unless you have really weak legs!) is that your mixture is being wea

Make sure two of your pistons are at top dead center. It's possible your center or rear cam journal is hitting a connecting rod. If the rods are straight up and down, there's no possible interferenc
