Re: Gearbox Oil Change 1974 MGB

Re: Drive it day

Hi everyone, I hope and trust you are all well? I took mine out to collect some food yesterday, I think I might have taken a few wrong turns, so ended up taking a little bit longer than intended.

Re: E10 petrol and our MGs

Thanks for the useful comments Peter, I suspect it would be far easier to replace pipes and gaskets etc. To be honest, I think my question was a bit silly in anycase 🤣 However, on this subject. E10 is something our American friends have had since the 1980's, and is currently being discussed on anoth...
