The plugs are listed on the Cylinder Head breakdown page. They are a bit hard to find as they are listed below the pressed in air injection tube. Look for item 31A P/N 052-242 @ $ 0.95 each. Another

Tell me about it. Saturday started out with oil changes on the MGB and daily driver Dodge Neon. Followed by dragging the new MGA out of the trailer with a winch, the locked rear wheels making deep fu

This design of pump is very different from the big ole rotary one Carter makes. I had one of those in my MGB GT V6 and I agree it was awful. Sitting at an intersection with the turnsignal on was the

My suggestion would be that if you see an impending front or rear impact you should slew the car sideways to decrease the possibility of hitting your head on the roll bar and increase the possibility

As always good to hear from you. Roll bar and cage design is critical as it is easy to build entrapment into the devices. I co-drove a pro-rally car once that had side intrusion bars, but the inner

I am pretty sure the 74 radiator will interchange directly. I'm not sure why the factory went to two holes, but my memory says that they are in the same locations as the earlier 3 hole. The posts ma

The price seems a bit high for a flat carpet set. Both VB and Moss are in cut throat competition on this style of kit, so the pricing is in the $150-$190 regular price range with sale pricing normal
