I remember those SK carbs were sold for a while in the early to mid 90s. Supposed to be pretty good, I'm told. Much of them is interchangeable with Webers, I think. Japanese? /// or try http://www.t

the ingenious Webers can be very nice, depending on what you want. ZS, however, was a terrible carb, and on the B, it was used terribly... and if you want a horror story, check out MG recalls in the

I managed, through a mixture of pig-eyed perserverance, monkey-fisted manhandling and pure dumb luck, to loosen the heater flap cable enough so that I was able to yank the unit up about 2 inches and

Yup, Bs were made to be driven, and in my experience they run better when they're run frequently. At one point, my whole family got by on two Bs. I currently would drive my GT exclusively except it n

Now for something really mundane... valve seals... I understand the later type, fitted to 18V engines, are substantially better. Are they, can they be fitted to 18G engines, and is it worth the bothe

It really was a thoroughly gorgeous day here. Hard to believe it's Jan. I spent the day trying to get some work done on the GT, though, and didn't get to drive it much. Kansas City, 70 in January. Bi

OK, let me give some background. As some of you may know, a few months back I bought a non-running BGT and have been nursing it back to life. This particular B is fitted with a Weber 40DCOE, which wa
