Re: Decent Minor half shafts for sale

Thanks, Mike, I was also careful not to mark them "left" and "right" as I've seen folks do in the past and then get confused which direction they are looking at the car from! Ooops. So very clearly "Near Side" and "Off Side" and hoping they don't go to the States!! Yes, you're right, they can easily...

3.9 MG Midget Diff For Sale

Hello folks, If anyone is interested in a 3.9 diff, I am currently selling mine on Ebay. It's been revolving away quite merrily with no issues at all on my Minor for the past 20yrs and was removed just last week by Charles Ware in Bristol when I replaced it with a different ratio unit. More details ...

Re: Softer Ride

I cant think why there is a need to mess with the suspension.Its a complete waste of time in my view for a road car even with a tuned 1275cc IMHO My Moggie was totally transformed by having the suspension professionally set up and it's always something I'm happy to pay for. Not by a random chap at ...

Re: Rolling Road

Glad helped. Yes, best to get your engine well run in first as it takes a strong heart/stomach hearing your Moggie being revvved close to 5000rpm on a rolling road. Mine was popping and banging like a bitch at max revs and I must admit to feeling quite concerned but the tester was well happy! He set...

Re: Rolling Road

I took my Moggie (1275, HIF44, 123 dizzy, profiled cam, Maniflow etc) to JPR Tuning in Yate, just outside Bristol and was very pleased with John's set up. He very much old school so knows all about A series. Expect to pay £120 to £150 for a set up but more if you need dizzy/SU changes. He also has t...

Re: get you home bodges

Moggie bodges over the past 20 years: a) Throttle cable snapped so refitted choke cable to pull throttle arm to get me home. Thankfully, engine was warm so no need for choke to start. b) Fuel pipe developed a leak but managed to patch up with chewing gum to get home. c) Sump developed an oil leak an...
