  1. Ignition keeps cranking

    I have a 1977 MGB...When I turn the ignition key to start car, the starter keeps cranking and does not turn off even after I turn the key to off position. I have to disconnect the battery in order to stop the car from cranking.
    Does anyone have any thoughts or possible solution?

    Thank you
  2. Electronic ignition

    Just wondering what people think about upgrading to electronic ignition from standard points and rotor. My Mini is otherwise pretty thinking that if it's really more reliable then I should do it.
    Any suggestions as to what type and brand is best?

    The one that came with the new pump is apparently the wrong size, as I can't get it started.
    (BTW: it starts deep in the water pump housing, so there may be something else going on.)

    i'm hoping someone knows the exact bolt to use?

    thx and best regards.

  4. TR3A #12 timing chain cover redo

    Well after getting the TCC back on and sealed as well as I could....I read an article by Bob Schaller about using a Toyota R20 tensioner as a improved modification.....I could not resist at least checking it out.
    so I removed the cover again to ascertain how the R20 oil pressure activated tensioner would work.
    it would be necessary to run an oil line from the oil filter housing to a new oil port in the may be an improvement, but I'm not up for it.
    however I did replace ...
  5. Tr3A #11 timing chain cover

    After receiving the tensioner from TRF, I installed it and using hylomar gasket seal I replaced the cover.....
    only to find I forgot to install the cotter pin.
    so off comes the cover and I reinstall the pin then back on the cover.
    took three times as long as it should have, but taught me a lesson.
    The good thing about hylomar is it is forgiving because it doesn't set up & doesn't harden.
    otherwise I would have had to rescrape the seals and start fresh.
