08-08-2006, 07:03 PM
Hello all! I posted this in the classifieds as well as the Spridget forum since I'm a regular poster there but I figure I'll post this in here as well I have a 76 MG Midget w/ the British Leyland 1500 engine which I know is used in the Spitfires as well. I prefer it to be within a day's drive of Michigan. Thanks folks!

Team Triumph in Warren, OH may have some too. I picked up a 1500 oil pan from them.

Yep, I live 6 blocks away. They are fresh out of engines but have a lot of MGB parts.

Hmmm,well maybe I can help,maybe not. Depends on what you need.I have a lot of stuff but not in any particular order.

Box, I'm looking for a good block and cylinder head which I can have machined and rebuild. I would like a spare engine. Always a good think to have around. Finding the rest of the parts shouldnt be a problem. Thx
