Re: bleeding brakes

Have you tried wedging the brake pedal down and leaving it overnight then release the pedal slowly in the morning. If a lot of air in there it might need doing this way more than once. This worked for me after struggling bleeding the brakes after fitting a new master cylinder. When a reasonable peda...

Re: MGB Tacho (Rev counter)

Don't know about the 124 dizzy but I'm running a 68 BGT with RVI tachometer and is fitted with Luminition Optronic ignition and all seems ok. The distributor has had the curve altered to suit the cam I'm using. Not sure if this helps.

Re: GT tailgate upper seal replacement

Hi David
Did both the seals on mine (a 1968 GT) a few months ago took the tailgate off and did it in the house laid on an old sheet on the floor. Not too bad a job, best oiling the self taping screws the day before. Takes a bit of time but I was in no hurry.

Re: MGB GT Exhaust System

I have fitted one of these and sounds much better than the previous exhaust fitted to my car and a better sound than stainless steel imo.

They have brightened up the lights considerably so hopefully will be seen a lot easier.I have not tried headlamps as am already using halogens. They are not like the cheap ones from China I tried a ...
