Re: MGB Roadster 1972

My engine misfired a lot when i first got it as i set timing etc to manuf settings. Since i have used a vacuum gauge to set timing the engine is completely changed and performance greatly improved.

Re: Almost power steering feel

I was thinking the same and asked on the MGOC and MG EXP forums with some positive reviews. I have ordered a kit from here at

A lot cheaper.

Re: Tow rope anchoring points?

My car is a 1975 mgb roaster. It is a RB converted to CB. There doesn't seem to be any obvious place to add a hook or some other attachment in case i were to need a tow!

Tow rope anchoring points?

Hoping I never need to be towed or in case I am asked to give a tow where are the best places to fix a tow rope. Has anyone made a bracket that is for that purpose and where is it fixed?

Re: MGB Bonnet catch

Try a drop of oil on the mechanism to start with.

Re: ignition timing with vac gauge

I did a compression test today again with the Gunsons tester and got 180+-3psi which i think is quite high but guess due to a PO doing 40thou rebore and skimming the head 55thou. Also K&N filter with AAA needles so engine is not really standard for standard settings to apply. Is more advance better ...
