[Mgs] MGB Engine and gearbox reinstallation

Hi Paul,
  Access to the gearbox mounts is difficult. Additionally, there will be found
a sediment of sand, dirt and hardened grease that complicates fitting the
wrench to nuts and bolts.
   I have not resorted to drilling of the holes, so far, but it seems a
reasonable thing to do. Without the holes, most of the wrenching is
accomplished with open-end spanners, turning one flat at a time. This is done
without being able to see anything clearly.
  If there were no other benefit, just having the holes to aid removal of the
grit would seem to be worthwhile.

One thing I've never seen discussed in the 'engine only' or 'engine and
gearbox together' debate is getting at the gearbox to crossmember mounts.
Whilst it obviously isn't impossible, some people have felt it necessary to
resort to drilling the crossmember to get a socket on a long extension
