Author: (Robert J. Donahue)

Well I got the old torn gasket off OK. The new manifold gasket I got from Moss has metal on one side only. My question is does the metal side go against the head or the manifolds (or maybe it doesn't

What should the exhaust at idle look like on a properly tuned TD? When I set the mixture by the "lift-the-pin" method, the exhaust has a little black in it. By leaning it out a couple of flats, I can

The radiator shell on my TD has a few dents and a spot near the medallion that is torn. I looked up the part in the catalogs and promptly caught a case of sticker shock. I was wondering if the tear c

I'm getting ready to paint my TD. As far as I can tell, it has had at least two previous paint jobs by the DPOs. There is little evidence as to the original color (I have my heart set on ivory anyway

Maybe one of the valves is sticking. The valves are just small thin metal discs just behind the inlet and outlet couplings. Perhaps cleaning them might help. I've heard of vapor lock problems in war

Maybe the "detergent-oil-in-the-old-car" theory applies here. The distilled water disolves mineral deposits that were plugging up holes in an old radiator. Hence you get a leak you didn't have before

I went to Indy, buy not in an MG. Enjoyed myself. Met some other people who went without MGs. The current theory on the TD is a sticky valve on no. 4 cylinder. The noise has gone away and the compre

I wouldn't be too concerned about an 8 milliamp drain. The radio and computers on the new cars drain at least that much with the ignition off. As for the lack of voltage, make sure the two 6v batter
