    MGB Re: Engine build question

    Rut, the distributor is already on it's way to Jeff and the exhaust manifold is headed to Jet Hot.

    MGB Re: Engine build question

    Yes, I have noticed that the MG side of this forum is not visited nearly as much as the other forum. And on the other forum the Triumph side is almost a ghost town. I don't understand that.

    TR2/3/3A Re: TR2/3 Guru Final Exam

    John, if you can't easily locate a collar take the one you have, along with the clip, to a machine shop and have them cut in the recess. Shouldn't take a good machinest more than ten minutes.
