Thanks to everyone who responded. I'm sure it'll take longer than I plan for, but I've got a rough idea now. I also think it'll take more than a cam, but I'm trying to convince myself that I really N

I was looking at the Moss website yesterday (just to see if the supercharger was on sale) and noticed that there's a new EFI system that replaces the ZS carb on later model cars. It didn't mention mu

I'm not sure about the earlier cars, but the 1977-1980 models came with a clock. The stem on mine seem to break, so setting the time involves disconnecting the power and waiting. --Steve (1980 MGB) I

Could a break in the engine ground wire be the culprit? Just a guess, but that's something that might get jostled when the engine twists. --Steve (1980 MGB) ... Needn't necessarily be a short, but a

I like the black bumpers, and would probably go for the stock replicas if it were my car. Then again, I like the looks of the RV8, so if I went with body colored bumpers I'd try to find one of the R
