I will have to mildly disagree re the repro PL700...at least the ones I got . I fitted two to replace wipac quadoptic units that were on the car and the dipped cut off is visually identical on my garage doors....at least to me. I'd imagine fitting H4 bulbs to an original PL700, if indeed it is possi...
You might be wise to pay a company to drain the tank as if it is full you will then have a large volume of yuk but highly flammable liquid to dispose of. Most domestic waste facilities do not accept fuel. Bona fide companies will take away old fuel. If you are a member of the AA or RAC I think they ...
There are ones now available for MGB's. MGB headlights have round metal back bowls .....whether they fit I don't know....remember that the bowl on a series 1 e type has a flat bit at the back so the wheel does not foul the bowl...makes space behind the reflector even more compromised....and they mus...

Unless your tank is open to very damp air very unlikely in my opinion. Ethanol does absorb water but only to a point. UK fuel only contains 5% ethanol at present...and most super unleaded has zero ethanol for now. More likely the fuel in the float chambers looses the more volatile components and get...
130/90 will need relays and thicker cabling. IMO a waste of time. Unless you are driving for hours at night use best quality Bosch or Osram type 60/55 watt types with relays. Mine provide more than adequate light levels for driving in the dark.

And just for sanity check it is the correct dip stick. I believe most, if not all, E type dip sticks have the letter E stamped right at the tip. E is for E type.... not empty!

I did my MGB down pipes. Made a modicum of difference. Pipes fine. Do be aware though that the insulation is very coarse woven fibre glass and is extremely uncomfortable to handle in my experience. Wear stout leather gloves when handling and wrapping
I use bluecol glycol based antifreeze and change annually. The difference between the cheap and the less cheap may be that the more costly needs diluting and the other is ready to go. I use the stuff that needs diluting and do roughly 50:50. It does work out cheaper. I use filtered rain water (I hav...
From a safety point of view 2 point lap belts are no good for any car....you will bend forward and smash your head on the steering wheel and/or screen in a front end impact. If you can fit them use a three point belt....just my opinion....
The modules are not model specific but the bits in the distributor are. They do a standard one and for more £££ a sports version I think. Available from various places e.g. Moss Europe I believe.
As Chris says it may be a lumenition failure. I suggest you connect a spark plug directly to the lead from the coil and see if you get a spark. If not it is probably a dead lumention module assuming of course it has a 12 volt supply in addition to the 12 volts via the coil and the sensor within the ...
Thanks Chris....makes sense....not that there is much sense in the process! Philk.... checked both my MG and E type....they both have MOT's but would be allowed in with no charge....wonder if there is a further twist depending on when your car was registered or something? Mine are both UK cars and h...
