    Re: Others?

    I am a living example of this: I work for a college - and as of now they are pressing everyone to work from home. However, I live in an area that is too financially impractical (in plain speak "low...

    Re: Do they still teach math?

    I have never quite understood the attachment to cursive - I'm old enough to have been forced through it and truthfully never used it even in school. I could understand having it be part of an art or...

    Re: Speaking of Bureaucracy

    Different states have all kinds of different rules independant of the federal regulations - here in Texas only a handful of counties have to do emission tests (and only on vehicles between 2 and 24...

    Re: This does not look good for our LBC.

    I try to do as much myself as I can - I have had to use paid services when something is beyond my abilities or (far more frequently) I can't get time off from work to do it and it needs immediate...

    Re: Electric car owners?

    I'd love to!! Regrettably, telling my employer that I'd only be in 3 days a week instead of 5 would result in my driving much more because I'd be living in my car under a freeway overpass instead of...

    MGB Re: busy tach on 1979 MGB at 75 mph

    At 75MPH you are probably spinning close to 4000 RPM (unless you have an OD transmission in which case more like 3500) - could you be experiencing a missfire which just happens too quick to notice...

    Re: 1969 mgb roadster seat belts

    This will probably eventually be moved to the MG section but since its here I'll answer here:

    I had the same problem with my 1970 - seat belts were disintegrated beyond use. The older MGB's use...

    The Teslas are really nice - but obviously way out of the price range of most working people. What I don't like about them (other than the price) is they are constantly internet-connected which...

    Re: Furnace!

    Even brand new I don't get that many rotations on momentum alone. Sounds like you probably have a really well built ball-bearing motor instead of the cheaper bushing bearings.

    I had a leveller when I pulled mine, it did help alot.

    Also, because of how much angle you need to get the engine/gearbox out as a unit, it was helpful to put the rear of the car up on jackstands...
