I have some questions concerning MG rear axles:

1. Is the rear axle assembly the same for both disc-wheel and wire-wheel MGA's? ( I know that the axle shafts were different).

2. Is the rear axle assembly for an MGA the same as for early MGB's?

3. What final drive ratios were available for the MGA as well as for other BMC cars that used that axle.

4. Does anyone make aftermarket hardened MGA axles much as does Winner's Circle for Sprites, etc?

Thanks in advance for the help.

1 - wire wheel axle is narrower

2 - yes

3 - anything from 3.7 to 5.12

4 - not really needed as the stock axles are good (WW a bit stronger than steel wheel)

If you contact Moser Engineering, they may be able to give you a quote (but you might have to send them an old axle as a model).


But as Bill says, the standard axles may be fine (I have very little experience with "big" MGs /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif )
