Re: Drive it day

Took my MGB GT out on local roads in the evening . Drove about 10 miles only . Very few people about but it was good to drive it again .

Re: Wipac headlights

Michael, thanks for your posting. What l was thinking when l connected the misting of the lens etc with fitting a relay l have no idea!. I have read elsewhere that , because of the old connections in the lighting circuit, the output can be much reduced. It is certainly something l will look into . I...

Re: MG Live

Slight correction to my earlier posting . It is Silverstone Circuit Ltd not BRDC who are trying to cancel the event.
Please see main site of MG Car Club for details
I should say HAVE cancelled our event.

MG Live

I read on the Triple M forum that the MGCC is likely to loose the use of Silverstone for our usual international meeting this year. It seems that the owner (BRDC) want to do track maintenance prior to the Grand Prix at the time the Club had booked to hire it. I understand urgent discussions are taki...

Re: Wipac headlights

Thanks for your reply , David. I can definitely say that it was not normal condensation inside the light. I have now returned them to Moss. The fitting of a relay is a possibility but , and l am not electrically qualified , l cannot see how that would affect the misty coating on the lens and reflect...

Re: Wipac headlights

Many thanks Paul and Peter for your replies. I think you may be right , Paul , that it is the lens that is the problem. I think they are plastic of some sort and the heat of the bulb is causing fumes that adhere to the reflector and inside the lens .Hopefully, Moss will change this second pair and l...

Wipac headlights

I have replaced the original sealed beam headlights with a pair of Wipac lights that have halogen bulbs on my 1973 BGT , bought from Moss. After using them for only a short time , about half an hour , the reflectors and the inside surface of the lenses on both lights appear misted . The light output...

Re: Remote Servo position

Peter. Thanks for the info on your steering wheel. There are many things to consider when changing from the original one and , ideally , one needs to try out the different sizes and styles available but that’s not possible. Will give it some thought !. Thanks again . Ray.
