I have a Zoom Pro Account which does not have a time limit. (free accounts have a 40 minute limit if more that 3 are in the room)
If you would like me to host, let me know.

Good afternoon fellow MG family,

I hope this email finds you all doing well during this uncertain time.  We have been surviving as best as we can here.

In an effort to try to have things somewhat normal we, the Board, have decided we are going to try a Zoom meeting for our May GT.  The room will open at 7:00pm for all to come in and have conversations, say hi, etc.  Then at 7:30 we will mute everyone and run our business portion of the meeting.  Once that is complete we will open the floor (room) back up to conversations again for a bit.

We will send the Zoom Meeting link when we get closer to May 12th, in the meantime if you have any questions or concerns on how to join a meeting or anything please don’t hesitate to reach out.  Lambert has become a bit of an expert with Zoom because he runs his “Office Hours” for his students through Zoom.

Looking forward to seeing you all - and NO this is not just for current members.  If there are any past members who would like to join to say hi, please feel free - all are welcome.

Stay safe, stay strong and Safety Fast,

Kristi

Thanks for all the replies! I’ll be creating a group email list to those who replied in the affirmative and I’ll look for some good weather to get us started.

I did a 1-hour trial drive today with member Steven Perlman (MGB) and two other non-club members (MGTD & Morris Minor Traveler) and they all seemed to think it went pretty well.

If anyone else wants to get added, just let me know at any time. As to those who’ve signed up, I’ll be in touch.

Re: How Check if Numbers Match

Kevin McLemore
 

Don’t know about the GT’s tags. Early cars didn’t have any engine reference on the tag but later cars might have??

As to the timing marks, if it’s a rubber-sleeved harmonic balancer (i.e. there is rubber between the outer rim and the inner hub, to reduce vibration), then definitely yes, as the rubber hardens and shrinks the outer rim can begin to slip around which of course makes the timing look like it’s off when it’s not (or worse yet, vice versa!)  One easy way to check to see if it’s slipped is to put a dial indicator on the front face of the rim and slowly turn the engine over... if there’s more then an insignificant amount of runout (wobble) then that’s a sure sign yours is shot. 

I replaced the one on my Sunbeam motor when I rebuilt it because when I went to have everything balanced they found excessive runout in the original.  I dodged a bullet on that - the timing marks had not yet slipped so it went unnoticed until then. 

Be careful when buying a new one... This is one case where “NOS” is NOT a plus. And a good, properly made balancer isn’t cheap. 

Cheers,
Kevin

Hi All,

I hope everyone is well.

On my 1971 MGB GT, how can I check if the engine and transmission are the original equipment?  Should the tags on them match the
VIN no.?

Also, has anyone ever heard of slipping timing marks?  Ed Sweeney is working on my GT and discovered the timing was 20 or more degrees off.  But the timing marks said it was right on. 

Thanks,

Roger
