1. Clock for MGB (score: 1)
Author: "Bob D." <>
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2006 08:45:43 -0500
Is there a proper clock for the MGB? Was there a factory option? I find interesting that the TD, as Spartan as it was, came standard with a clock. Bob D.

My '71 B makes a 'clunk' noise when I start up after a complete stop. It sounds like it is coming from the right rear wheel, but I know you can't trust your ears while driving. I have pushed and prod

My B engine has a tendency to run too cold. During the dog days of summer it's great to have the temp gauge stay right on the N. But at 60 degrees F the gauge only gets up about half way to N, and at

I'm starting to think my cold engine isn't really that cold. As I mentioned, I covered my radiator completely. Yesterday I took a 50 mile trip in 32 degree F weather. The temperature gauge stayed jus

Get ready for a whole lotta mallet tapping. IMPORTANT: Make sure the two U-joints line up according to the shop manual. Might as well replace both while you're at it, the other one may be bad even th

I see I'm not the only one who has had bad luck with rubber parts: hoses, boots, wiper blades, etc. Again I ask, why can't the reproduction makers use decent OEM grade rubber? Any insights on this ma

I put new brake linings on the old TD today. Two of the wheels were 'tight', even with the adjusters fully retracted. I wasn't too concerned as I could still push the car by hand, although I could fe

Remember, this is a British engine designed 50 years ago. Don't expect the low oil consumption of modern cars. IMHO - AFTER the rings have bedded in, anything over 500 miles per quart is OK. I keep s

Are you kidding? IMHO, the middle wiper is a vision hinder, not enhancer. It has no function other that to meet arbitrary U.S. regulations, and put extra scratches on the windscreen. (DPOs just love

Is there a torque spec on the u-bolts? How far do you compress the rubber pads? It seems like the pads get really squished long before the u-bolts are 'tight'. Bob Donahue (Still Stuck in the '50s) E
