MGB Need help identifying these parts


Freshman Member

I got these with some Healey parts.
Is this an MGB soft top frame and valve cover?

I am not sure about the top, MG B will have a metal strip in the back pocket of the top that hooks to two chrome type clips on back deck if the valve cover is apox. 12 inches it is say Morris or Mini like 900cc If it 15 inches a MG B by year the tube will tell you that Madflyer

Not sure what the top is from, but not MGB. And as Madflyer says, scale is everything with the valve cover. MGB is 15" end-to-end,

Thanks for the replies.

The valve cover is 15" end to end - what do I look for in the tube to get the year?

It is not in the tube, rather if there is one or not. I'm not certain, but ISTR post-1967 the tube was fitted. Pre-smog control engines had no vent tube on the valve cover, the engine was vented at the front lifter cover plate.
