Graham,
I have already shared the original workshop manual and also a David Manners catalogue.
The workshop manual is 14th edition which covers CB cars.

You are likely to find working on a B straightforward after your extensive hands on experience of Landrovers and a Spitfire. Though the vehicles are different there is noticeable commonality in the way the parts are designed to fit and work together which will make you feel quite at home.

Coming from years of working on 60s to 80s era Fords and Mercedes it is taking me a while to get my head around the BL/ MG way of doing things but I have been helped and guided considerably by the good people on this forum who are knowledgeable and keen to share their experience.

Thanks Chris.......this was sort of my logic, but I’ll probably come along and ask lots of silly questions anyway :D
