MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - It's Alive! (again)
|Well, it's back on the road again! Now with a 4L disco engine. I LIKE IT! It even made the 6 mile loop around our mountain at 15mph (speed limit) without getting hot.|
(Thanks for the engine Evan)
79 MGB, Rover 4L,RV8 exhaust, Mustang rad,TR7 5spd, stock rear.
Feels good to get em runnin doesn't it!!?
|One of the brave, the few, the sucessful. |
Why are you typing when you could be driving?
|Peter, I had to stop for a pint (or 2):)|
It's been a battle. After the 3.5 gave up, the car had to go into storage because of a move. Well, mice ruined all of the new rubber in the engine bay and shredded the boot carpet. That delayed it's return to the road quite awhile. Now, mouse traps are a standard item in the garage!
|Hello , Kelly glad to hear your rippen around again . This info. is a little late , but maybe will help this winter & help others , for storage , I have been told that its an old wives tale & doesent work ? well in the 7 or 8 years that I've done it , I've had NO more mouse problems [excuse me : little ba*^ards!] for years I had problems with mice getting up in m/c's exhaust pipes & the empty battery box over the winters and in non runners stashed away in a very non mouse proof storage trailer. They've chewed up wires , pissed everywhere , etc. I dont know who told me to try this but I did & no mice since , buy some moth balls & put some around here & there , trunk , interior floor & under seats , engine compartment , I use those small deli containers & sit em here & there , & I take 2 or 3 & put em in the end of m/c pipes . No more mice !|
|I'm sure moth balls do the trick but I can't stand the smell either. I'll just have to keep driving it!|
I had a good run up to the blue ridge today. It's only about 15 miles from where I live.
I'm ready now. The leaves can start to change any time.
