Re: HS6 carbs + accompanying modifications.

Thank you for the replies! I have done a bit more investigating and taken into account your suggestions. I think i am going to flog the HS6s (even after many hours of making them look pretty) as low down driveability will be an important factor. I understand that these can be overcome with the right...

HS6 carbs + accompanying modifications.

Hi guys, me again! So I am currently restoring a '73 MGB GT. The other week I picked up some HS6 carburettors with a correct MGB manifold so they are ready to put on when the car is done. One of my jobs along the way will be to rebuild the engine. I will be replacing the camshaft with a fast road on...

Re: Aldon 1950 race engine

Hi Peter, Thank you for the reply! Unfortunately the owner/seller is not helpful in the slightest. Very blunt and doesn't seem to have a clue about the engine so i think its best i steer clear, which is unfortunate! I pulled the engine out of mine the other day as im currently mid restoration. Im no...

Aldon 1950 race engine

Hi Guys, I have seen an Aldon 1950 race engine for sale but the history of it doesn't seem great. The chap selling it said he brought it a while ago with the intent of building a racer but never got round to it. He says that the engine has never been used; however im not too sure how much truth ther...

Re: a tachometer question

My issue was slightly different to yours whereby mine would jump to max as soon as i turned on the ignition, every time. I tried a load of random fixes to no avail. In the end i just sent it for repair, came back working perfectly!

Cheers!

Re: biased vs fixed needles

Hi Both, Okay cool in that case i will keep the needles as fixed as they are new needles. They have already been centred however i need some new jets as the ones that were fitted were too worse for wear. I believe you can fit biased needles or non biased needles, i think you just need to use slightl...

Re: Hi and thanks.....

Good luck with the restoration! I am in a similar situation to you whereby the car will need new sills on each side. I brought the car as a learning project so i am going to carry out as much of the work myself as i can. This includes welding in the new sills and respraying the entire car. This deci...

biased vs fixed needles

Hi,

Whats the difference between biased vs fixed needles? I understand the fact that the biased needles can pivot/sway but why would you need one or the other? Im asking as I picked up a pair of HS6 carbs for my B GT and it has the fixed type installed.

Thanks!
Harry.

Re: 73 MGB GT restoration

Hi Ian, What was the larger sanding block made out of? I cant see any that are longer than about 5/6 inches? Can you remember where you know where you got your one from? Yeah its a bit of a shame, but it will be some good experience nevertheless! That was the main reason behind this car really, i wa...

Re: 73 MGB GT restoration

Hi Ian, Sorry for the belated reply, i have been a bit busy of late! Again, you have been extremely helpful with your fantastic information, so thank you very much!!! I think i will try to avoid the orbital sander then and will just do it all by hand, will probably end up with muscly arms by the end...
