The Olds was the F-85. There are a couple of these (Buick, Olds) at Bob's Wrecking in Milan, OH with engines and automatic trannies. A mixed bag--one is almost complete, another is missing manifolds

I know, everyone in the world wishes to KILL, but this sort of nonsense is outrageous in the extreme, so I must vent. If "David" is reading this, here is a message

This issue has arisen before. From my perspective SF does have attractive prices, but I have personally had very bad experiences with them, which seems to mirror other opinion on the net as well. The

I think that it is important to understand what makes oil pressure and a lack thereof. The pump, driven off the camshaft, is rated to move a certain _volume_ of oil per turn, thus the volume is (some

The job of a synchro is to stick, to a cone-shaped surface on the gear driven by the mainshaft. Unsticking is not indicated. Your problem is that either your synchro surface ("teeth" or striations) i

On the plus side, wires are stylish. On the minus side, the hubs wear out, they corrode, wires break, they get out of tune, they are weak (not really suitable for racing) and you can't use tubeless t

OK, guys, a gentlemanly challenge from Oz. Fact: All standard (factory) reference manuals state unambiguously that the recommended lube for an MG tranny (TD, TF, A, B) is 30 weight motor oil. Fact: A

The hole in the console is approximately the size of a standard DIN mount. I installed a Rat Shack DIN radio/cassette in my '73 with no trouble (assuming that it would be ripped off, sooner or later)

Saving a little bit of face, since my previous reply got lost in the bit bucket. MG used BSF (son of Whitworth) and some bastardized metric combinations in cars through the TF (1955 or so). I always

Seems to me you have a late model pulley and earlier timing cover. As mentioned, I've seen that before. The advance on this engine can be quite dramatic (some 40-50 degrees at higher speeds), but tha

Nothing else holding it. I presume that what you mean is that when you remove the two bolts and the clamp bolt the bracket is free to rotate but the dizzie is still stuck. At that point the dizzie sh

Splined hubs cewrtainly are work, especially when they are worn (with apologies to Gibbons). Most likely. There should be absolutely no slop in the bearings. At. All. Fortunately, the rear wheel bear

Nothing you describe is surprising. New cylinders are less expensive than sleeving -- try Northwest Import Parts or Special Interest Parts, around $50. In general abused systems (lack of lube) will h

You are opening a big can of worms here. Paint preferences are very personal, and there is no clear winner. In general, the urethane will be more resistant to weather etc than the enamel, and both wi

MGA's are a bit more forgiving than MGB's with respect to rot because they have a frame which is very robust. From that perspective, one can start with an MGA that appears to be in rather bad conditi
