MGBGT door hinge problems

I am eventually starting to put my BGT back together and before fitting the doors I have noticed the driver and passenger door top hinges are quite stiff to move and the lower ones have some up and down play in them. I seem to remember being told the up and lower hinges are different but both look t...

Re: What did you do with your MG over the weekend.

Last weekend and probably for the next couple of weekends I am sorting out the passenger door shut lines (might even replace the door!) and fitting the ALDON electronic distributor I bought last week. I managed to get the B out for a run down to Romsey and back just to blow the cobwebs out of her (a...

Re: Replacement Distributor

Hi Dave, My distributor is definitely in need of replacement, on return from Cornwall I checked it out and found quite a lot of play in the shaft, to my knowledge it is the original 1972 dizzy!! I have been in touch with the Distributor Doctor and others and find the prices are very similar for the ...

Re: Replacement Distributor

Hi John, Many thanks for the information, sorry for the delay in replying - have got man flu at the moment.

Re: MGB TOOLS AND SPARES TO CARRY

I suppose the US spec cars could use their trunks to put their elephants in!!! I took just about everything I could think of to the Cornish weekend, and only used a very small screwdriver and pliers to fix my wife's glasses and a spanner to tighten the fan belt in 828 miles, (it was the longest dist...
