A collection of classic car and MGB tips

This “blog” is a collection of over 500 posts and articles about classic cars from around the Internet and other sources. It is also a running update of jobs, mods and maintenance I have carried out on my 1975 MGB Roadster.

Since I bought my MGB at the end of 2017 I have carried out quite a lot of small jobs under the bonnet and on the body. Also I removed the engine and gearbox to sort out a gear selector problem (that’s why – in hindsight – it was a “bargain” I didn’t realise it at the time!!). Whilst the engine was out I took the opportunity to sort out several oil leaks on the engine (which later turned out to be down to a distorted timing chain cover).

Also included in this blog are many quick tips and ideas that may be of interest to other MGB owners. There are reviews of many of the accessories I have and places I have been – mainly shows and autojumbles that are worth a mention and may be of interest to other owners.

Click on any of the posts by hovering your curser over the image – this will display the full post.
