Hey Neil, what's you point? I love guys who do check book restorations. Those are the sources for my 'drivers' a half dozen years later. I used to get a little uppity about the folks whose involvemen

Hmmm. I've always thought automotive batteries consisted of cells with each cell producing 2.2 volts when in optimum condition. 12 volt batteries have 6 cells and 6 volt batteries have 3 cells. So, a

BTW: If you like top down motoring, you should probably keep a little Chapstick in the glove box. On rainy days this works wonders along the windshield header rail for keeping just such drips outside

Back when I had my old midget, I pulled into a convenience mart to replenish my vices. The car was black, beatup, but reliable. Not a looker. As I was wedging myself back into the cockpit, a new, shi

You might try getting your discs turned to knock off the slight waviness. But it's usually caused by dust and the demise of asbestos brake pads. They make some blue goo that is anti-squeal that is sm

I hesitate to chime in as I don't know what the vacuum mechanism is doing on a '79 MGB. It could either be Vacuum Advance or RETARD, oddly enough. Also, you have to be careful where the vacuum comes
