Re: For the sake of sanity!

Kevin McLemore
 

Well, I got a few things done so far. On the MG I replaced the thermostat housing with a new stainless one which has an easily removable thermostat and now the car is running at a properly warm (and the heater works now!). I also changed out the transmission oil. I also plan to work on the side curtains, the wiper motor wiring and to install brand new carburetors.

For the Sunbeam Alpine I machined new pistons for the rear brake cylinders out of bearing bronze to replace the rusted original steel ones. I’ll be finishing the new intake system, putting fresh oil in the rear axle (after I rebuilt the unit a few months ago), and installing all new rear brakes with the rebuilt cylinders.

I removed the seats from my 1965 MGB, and am re-stuffing them while home due to this nightmare.
Switching the covers from driver to passenger side will be done too, since the driver leather is more worn than the passenger leather due to me often driving it solo.
 
I am also fixing my wiper fluid “squirter” that is essentially a water pistol.
If anyone has worked on them before, let me know what the story is regarding check valves and where they live.
I have found that when I profile the line, it works great, but if i put it in the bottle, it seems to push back and eventually not squirt.
 
I also took the door panel apart and fixed the speaker that was hanging off the door.  I now no longer need to slowly and gently close my door for fear of the speaker falling out.
 
I am sure I will find other projects to do soon.
 
Anyone else using the time to do the projects that you have put off for some time?

To All,
I hope this finds everyone doing well and OK.
If you are working the on front lines, please stay safe.

You are probably like Mary and myself at home finding things to do, or maybe
rummaging around the house to stay occupied by addressing long-overdue projects.

Well, I figured now might be a perfect opportunity to provide everyone a brief 
distraction from this new adventure we are all dealing with and help allow our minds 
to focus on something different than the everyday news - if only for a brief moment 
in the day. 

So, I created an MG related - Crossword Puzzle for you all to take a stab at.
*  Please find attached a .pdf file with the Puzzle and Clues.
*  First, Print the puzzle, work thru it, then if you can, scan it and E-mail it 
   back to me as a .pdf copy of your finished Puzzle.
   (PLEASE: DO NOT REPLY ALL)
   My E-mail is:  (nsp7919@...)

So, since it's a Rainy/Nasty out, have some fun relaxing with your feet up, pencil
in hand and have at it, or are your one who can do Crossword Puzzles in INK?
Enjoy......

As always, looking forward to getting the car out and seeing everybody soon when we can.

Re: 15 Inch Wheel Conversion for '78 B

Henry Hauptfuhrer
 

The GPS gauges actually can include a lot of additional features such as odometer, turn signal indicator, etc.. – all hard wired off your existing electrical system.  There’s a selection on Amazon as well as other web sites.  The good thing is unlike a smart phone, there are no capabilities to notify the spouse of speeding.

The ride. Is much better with the 15 "  but the speedometer must be recalibrated. And you need narrow tires for clearance in rear fenders don't remember the size

Subject: [PhillyMGClub] 15 Inch Wheel Conversion for '78 B

Hi all,

Does anyone have experience in switching a rubber bumper B to 15 inch wheels?  How big a job?  Is it worth it for handling and appearance?  Etc.?

Roger

Hi Kevin,

Your friend is probably looking for a roadster, but  I can offer my GT which has AC.  It's a great driver.

I have a friend who is looking for a decent chrome-bumper MGB (or a TR6 or Alpine).  I've known him since high school and he's always dabbled in LBCs - he presently has a Spitfire, but the wife complains that the interior is too cramped so he's looking to get one of the above because they have a wee bit more interior space. He doesn't want a total fixer-upper, but at the same time I don't think he's looking for concours - just s good runner without major issues or buckets of rust. If you know of anyone thinking of selling, please feel free to PM me at kmclemore@.... Thanks!
