Hello all, Well, I said I'd be back when I had problems, and here I am... On Wednesday, I went out to my car and drove it to school, to the store, and back to my dorm room (1974 MGB). I parked the ca

Max, you may be on to something. I took another serious look at the cap and rotor after reading your mail. The metal rod that extends into the cap and near the rotor was seriously grooved in one pla

Hello again... Went out to find that old cap and rotor, but before I started playing, I told myself that I would try to start the car. And it fired right up! I sprayed some WD-40 inside the new cap (

Hello all, I decided on my trip home to get new pads in my braking system and have my drums and rotors turned because I wasn't happy with the way my car was stopping. I ordered new Bendix pads and sh

I've done this another way too, which seemed a little easier to me. Install your new MC into the car. Bolt it into place, but DO NOT remove the original plastic plugs or install the brake lines yet.

Two years ago I paid about the same amount for a MC for my '74 MGB. The reason yours is higher, Dan, is that the post-'74 cars should have the power assist brakes, right? That was the reason that Adv
