    Re: How I spent my day today...

    On the later, envelope-bodied Bentleys it was almost easier to lie across the engine and do the valve adjustment "upside-down" as it were. Being a contortionist would be a benefit. :playful:

    MGB Contemplating a conversion

    The charging system in our B is giving me fits. Put a new set of brushes in the generator a month ago, the voltage output was fine for a month. Last Wednesday the voltage dropped to battery voltage...

    Re: How I spent my day today...

    Brings back memories. A 'fiddly' job! Never had a new head to deal with but have done more than a few head gasket replacements on those old lumps in my past.

    The "brick"! Have one on the livingroom shelf. There's a thin, spring steel ribbon that cocks the shutter. Mine is finally broken, so the camera is just eye candy. Not worth the effort to fix it...

    If you have trigger at the points, you should be good to go. Rig the coil and plug wires, static time the beast and go for a spin!

    General MG Re: How do you define the "soul" of a car?

    A pal of over thirty-five years, ex-pat Brit and London Guilds certified, has said of MGB's: "These things even haf right'll run inna bottom of a bucket o' s**t!"

    Re: The magic of Photoshop

    First "real" SLR's for me were Miranda G bodies. Most of the versatility of Nikons of the day (1966-68) and not as costly. Soligor made their glass and it was just fine for news photography. Nikon...

    Digital ain't quite there yet as far as full gray scale. Closer all the time, but not as rich as film emulsion yet. [/COLOR]
