Hi...this is a repost on recommendation from the MG General Thread. Picked up a ‘72 midget ~2500 miles ago...ran beautifully...about a month ago, the fuel pump went...no issues replacing. The following week it started to ‘choke’ as i was driving...would bog down and then catch and run even again...this was an instantaneous event...happened three times across a 3 mile stretch of road and then just died. Rebuilt the carbs...pulled the shafts (felt like it was taking on air). Finally brought it into the shop...he pulled the plugs/gaskets and looked down the Cylinders...said two had no finish with significant pitting...80% by pass. His recommendation was finding someone to do the honing or replace the engine. I have checked the fuel system and the wiring...inspected the springs and the pistons. Mechanic still comes up with the pitting is causing gapping creating no utilization of 2/4 cylinders...and that engine is struggling to run on the other 2. Have known the mechanic for many years...trust is not an issue.. Thanks all!!
