Re: So how many MG's do you have?

That's a lot of MGs - imagine one day owning the full set! I've just the one MGB GT 1978 Rubber bumper at the moment which I'm booking in for a Chrome Bumper conversion in December. Then maybe one day I can also do a v8 conversion! It's a shame you can't also do a Roadster conversion or my car would...

Silly question about compression tests...

Hi this may seem like a ridiculous question, but my MGB has an immobiliser fitted which I've not seen on anyone else's cars and has no model no, or brand etc. Do to this being wired to the coil and the wiring loom wired to the immobiliser I just wanted to check if I need to disconnect any of this wh...

Re: Hot Coil - how hot should it be after driving? Sports Co

Jonah, are they both ballast ignition coils? That might account for the difference in readings? Well I read a fair bit on different websites before ordering but there seems a lot of Coil confusion out there. Maybe a 9v Coil is the unballasted older car "12v coil" - I didn't think of that one...

Haha yes it may be my imagination, but that old coil certainly looked like it's seen better days. Another thing I noticed was on checking it's resistance w...

Hot Coil - how hot should it be after driving? Sports Coil??

I just replaced my '78 MGB GT coil as it was very rusty and corroded. I opted for a 6v ballast 'Sports Coil' but after driving I found it fairly hot to touch. 1. I just wondered if these coils run hotter and if they are they ok to run so hot? 2. What does a 'Sports' coil do better than a standard co...
