Re: Rev counter

Shorting out somewhere?
Does it do that with the white wires disconnected, i.e. only the green and earth connected, if so then the tach is faulty. If it only does it with the white wires connected then disconnect the white at the coil and see what happens then.

Bench test

Is it possible to bench test an original 123 distributor and if so how?
Alternatively does anybody know where if possible I could get it tested/repaired.
Many thanks
Steve.

Replacing foam seat pad

The drivers seat pad on my ‘66 B is in need of changing, can you do this without separating the back of the chair from the seat?
The seats are Mk2 recliners with headrests.
Many thanks
Steve.

Re: Seat covers

Thanks for the info, it is not my car and as you say it’s for a ‘72 GT. I’m enquiring on behalf of someone I know so you are probably right in that they are not leather but vinyl.
I will pass on the information to him and let you know how he gets on.

Seat covers

Does anyone know where to source a pair of leather seat covers (or the material) to fit a 1972 MGB in dark blue with a lighter blue centre? As per original build.
Many thanks.

Re: Insurance

Have to agree with you there Vic, I have just renewed my MGB insurance with PB, supplied the various photo’s as per agreed valuation requirement, the premium was actually cheaper this year so no complaints from me.
