MGB Timing Cover Reinforcing Straps

Had the radiator off today to get ready to do another job which made an ideal opportunity to check how the timing cover reinforcing straps were holding out.

Not a drop of oil to be seen so very pleased. These specially made straps came from America – quite expensive but seem to do the job. Timing covers easily get distorted making them leak around the gasket. The reinforcing straps force the cover flange flat making a good seal.
