Re: Before I post anything else....

We also support new MG models here too and hope to build a community of old and modern MG owners! Take...

Re: MG GT as first car?

Hi sorry for the slow reply but I would highly recommend an MGB GT for your first car! An MGB GT was actually my first car and I still have it many year's later. It is ideal as a starter car if you don't mind learning about how to fix a car and do basic maintenance and get your hands dirty a little....

Re: Mgb missfire

I have had this myself and it has happened with dirt in the carb, leaking floats (which fill up more you run the car) and once I was firing on 3 cylinders due to a bad wiring connection from my electronic ignition. Checking the floats might be a good start and make sure both carbs are evenly balance...

Re: mgbgt rear parcel shelf

This is a great piece of kit and thanks for posting it here. I know a lot of MGB GT owners didn't even realise there was ever a parcel shelf originally as an option with the car! Feel free to add any photos etc or promote this here, best wishes with the venture. :)

Re: Am I alone on here ?

Hi there, you're not alone (though I know it must seem like it at times on here!). I'm the admin and don't check as often as I'd like too but I keep the site running and approve as many posts and new members that come in as often as I can. Unfortunately we're a bit slow to get going... I love MG car...

Re: carbs

May be worth replacing the floats. Mine did this once when the floats had a crack in one of them, it wasn't noticebale on cleaning them but enough to cause a problem! :P

Re: Mgb roadster

Check your wires attached to the coil. On an old Land Rover I once had this same problem which I ended up finding was a bad spade terminal on the coil. I cut the old spade connector off, stripped back the wire and put a fresh one on. This fixed the issue... It's a good idea to get a multimeter too, ...

Re: Twin SU carb worries

If stalling off choke you are either running too lean on the mixture screws, or as you say the carb set up is off or the carbs aren't balanced properly at idle. Also check your rpm tickover isn't too low. Best to start fresh and follow the tuning procedure such as in handbook/Haynes etc. Let me know...

Re: hot running misfire

I know it may be obvious, but it does sound like it's running rich. Sooty plugs and it not needing any choke to start... An MGB always needs choke to start in my experience from cold, even at a nice warm time of the year. I'd look at adjusting your carburettors and turn the mixture screw on each car...
