• Turn signals - from working fine to gone!

    My newly acquired 78 MGB had everything working a month ago. Since then I have replaced both clutch cylinders and now the turn signals and four way flashers are gone. The fuses are fine and I pulled out the flasher and replaced it with one that was with the car in a bag so Iím not sure if it is old or new. Anyway, Iím new to the British car scene and would appreciate advice on a check list to isolate and fix this problem. Please help. 🤣

      Hello, My first idea is that you should move this question to the MG forum section of this web site. There are plenty of MG people there.
      But I can give a few things to look at since I have worked on many MGs. On the B's the connectors under the dash sometimes get disturbed and lose connection so make sure they are well seated. Also if you separated any of the connectors especially some under the dash then check them again because the plug configurations are so close that they can be intermixed. look closely at the wire colours to make sure you are putting the right plug to the right connector. Since you changed your master cylinders it is possible that you loosened some connections or reconnected them wrong. Go luck and talk to the boys and girls on the MG forum. Just hit forum buttom and scroll down.

    Re: sealing master cylinder pocket

    3M makes a seem bedding sealer that is tan or black and never completely hardens, yet can be removed easier than the old "black tar" seems sealer.

    Originally they had a black tar like substance seam sealer for the whole assembly. I used rubber based caulking last time. I think it was gray and called

    Good that you sorted it out. Curious to know whether the problem was with the ignition components or the fuel mixture? I'm guessing ignition.

    indicator lights Austin Healey BT7

    I have an issue with my indicators. All is good until I turn on side/headlights. Indicators stop working but dash signal light still operates.
    Any ideas?
    Wiring is good - I think.
