Re: Improved heater

Basil's 'genuine after-market' period heater is very good. As I have a temp gauge fitted, if I put the heater on I can see a noticeable drop of at least a needle width when it's going.

Sorry Geo, some Midgets had a ‘stronger’ 1098 engine, the crank had 2” mains rather than 1.75”
, it’s known as a 10CC rather than 10CG.
Thanks, it makes sense for the 'sportier' motor. :)
All these different numbers, depending on whether 'original' or reconditioned Silver Seal/Gold Seal........

Re: 10CC flywheel?

I don't mind displaying my ignorance of such things...... A what flywheel?
10CC?
As opposed to what?
I thought flywheels were 803, 948, 1098 cc etc :o

Re: starting

I have trouble understanding how a pressurised fuel line of only some 18" could possibly push enough fuel past the carb and into the inlet manifold to cause all this trouble. We'd be talking perhaps a teaspoons worth? Its then trickling along the bottom of the manifold and a few drips getting into a...

Thanks for that explanation Mike.

Re: A plea to restore valuable restoration threads

Can’t the ‘Board’ delegate the required permissions to you? :-? Hi Steve Mike PM'd me about having edited my post above and I agree with his reasons, but basically he does have workarounds available to him to get around problems such as he's mentioned. However, in a nutshell, because they are 'work...

Re: A plea to restore valuable restoration threads

I've been discussing Mary's "The Team" section with Mike. He reports: Unfortunately, I've found I can't edit the Team list after all - every name on it except mine (Admin) is a 'founder' member of the board, and even my account permissions aren't high enough to edit those.

Re: MGB-GT question?

Assuming it's an original fit item, can you work it out from the wiring colour codes against the wiring diagrams in the manual? Shouldn't be too hard, I can't imagine there's that many relays on 70s car. :wink: Equally, if its after-market owner fit, it should be easy enough to physically follow, as...

Re: Speedometer ser.no. coding?

Hi Wakko Not area of 'expertise' by any means since my Basil is some 15 years older and doesn't have Kms on the gauge. But my thoughts are that you'll have a problem getting a reconditioned one because they are all sold on exchange, with a hefty surcharge. if you look here for example, ESM offer 4 d...

I found a similar 'take it or leave it' attitude over my Ford Kuga insurance.
