  1. MGB Re: The easy way to get the oil pressure relief cap nut back on

    Thanks Paul!
  2. MGB Re: The easy way to get the oil pressure relief cap nut back on

    Dave - did you read my post? That is the second thing I mention.
  3. MGB Re: Anyone have experience with the Pertronix Ignitor III?

    Guy - what I was told and it makes sense is that the FIII has a very low impedance hence it can create the multiple spark of the PIII. I would really like to read your blog if you can post it. Much...
  4. MGB Re: Anyone have experience with the Pertronix Ignitor III?

    That's incredibly interesting. BP Northwest said I would have to get a FIII to make it work. I use Lucas Sport Coils now which they said wasn't suited. It would also be incredibly disappointing as...
  5. MGB Re: Anyone have experience with the Pertronix Ignitor III?

    Very interesting. I tried MSD + the tach accessory because it wouldn't trigger my tach. Maybe I used the wrong gap on the plugs but I didn't experience a big difference. I eventually sold them.
  6. MGB Re: Anyone have experience with the Pertronix Ignitor III?

    I was told by BPNorthwest that as long as you do not use solid core wires and get the Pertronix coil (very low resistance for multiple spark) you're fine and they sell and have a good history with...
  7. MGB Anyone have experience with the Pertronix Ignitor III?

    As the points I love are getting harder and harder to find I was wondering if anyone has experience with the new Ignitor III for a 25D?

    One time a mechanic tried to fit the original version to my...

    MGB Re: Engine surprize

    I run a VP-11 because I was living in L.A. and needed good idle in unrelenting traffic. If you haven't already - either send your dizzy to Jeff to have it curved for the VP-12 or someone you trust to...

  10. MGB The easy way to get the oil pressure relief cap nut back on

    I've been dealing with low OP and trying experiments on changing springs, packing, etc. Everyone I talked to who did this job said its hours of work and one of the most miserable jobs with the engine...

    MGB Re: Trouble bleeding new clutch MC & slave

    Reverse is the way to go. I did read about another method which is to either push the plunger in further than the car clutch does to get the remaining pocket of air out. Or remove the slave bolts,...

    MGB Re: An oil pressure odysseus

    That's the plan. I'll keep you guys updated.

    The only caveat is that the pressure suddenly dropped 25lbs one afternoon in traffic. If it slowly dropped over time I would consider it normal. So...

    MGB Re: An oil pressure odysseus

    Since I took it somewhere to do it, I didn't have them use a bore scope or anything to look inside the block. It took them an hour to get it in so I didn't want to rock the boat.

    Again, this is...

    I know its two choices and for now the only choice is driving it and watching the OP. Being a daily driver I do worry because its used daily and previously I was supposed to use it for some trips...

    What was the ultimate cause of the low oil pressure if the bearings were ok?

    MGB Re: An oil pressure odysseus

    I've wrestled with the concept that the dingle left over from the hone was slowly melting and adding grit. Oil/filter are changed at 3000 miles. Shouldn't this have gotten most of it? I just changed...

    Yoda - you should read the very overly long initial post. I did put a new oil pump in just in case. The only thing wrong with the uprated one in there was that weird scoring on the end that rotates...

    MGB Re: An oil pressure odysseus

    After putting in a new spring/packing/valve I seem to get 60 at speed when warm but can drop anyway from 50-25 at hot idle. Any theory why idle would drop so low when speed is within reason (albeit...

    Paul - just to be clear. Your hot pressure is 65 lbs whether at speed to hot idling in traffic?

    The only thing I can imagine is that dingle from the hone was laying in hot recirculating oil for 35K miles and slowly melted putting destructive abrasion into the oil. I changed oil/filter every...
