    Re: Runs great then....

    Finally got the brake fluid reservoir in and found it had two small hairline cracks in the upper part of the shell. Hard to see but probably my fault.It came in the mail well padded.

    Re: Runs great then....

    Thanks, Barry. I do have a Weber Downdraft, not a Stromberg. I put in a heatdshield as soon as I saw that the gas line ran directly over - and close to - the exhaust manifold. I believe my problem is...

    Re: Runs great then....

    Just want to thank Tony for the quick job he did finding me a used - but good condition - brake fluid reservoir.

    I should have the car back on the road in a few days, if we ever get two sunny days...

    Beats me, Doc. I never have had problems with the pump. Hopefully not now, either.

    Re: Runs great then....

    Yes, it does sound like fuel starvation. That is why I pulled the filter (and crushed the old, brittle brake fluid reservoir at the same time) and asked about the venting. While I am sure the problem...

    Runs great then....

    My 78B runs great, then after several miles it starts stuttering and, unless I nurse it along slowly, it will die. After it sits for a few minutes it will re-start and run fine again, then same thing...

    MGB Re: Gas Octane for MGB's

    We do have 92 octane fuel available in western Washington State, at least at our Arco Stations. It probably is available all over the coast states, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    I had a problem with my DVG at first. Finally figured out that you turn the mix OUT to lean, not IN. Could this be a part of the problem?

    MGB Re: 77MGB gas tank vent
