Looks to be a fair policy. 

But I was a bit disappointed, that I was not allowed to make a picture of the GT’s entry in the BMIHT register with my simple camera.

All these entries car by car hand written into this book. 

And very easy to read. This book looked to me as a piece of art.

“trawling through the Heritage archive yourself” 

I wonder if they let you. 

During our visit these guys were quite strict what was allowed and not. 

DIY in the archives is not likely to happen I think.

No info on gearbox or OD dating in either my Clausager book or Heritage certificates.  You might get the info from Overdrive Repair Services in Sheffield who are ex-Laycock people, failing that I suspect trawling through the Heritage archive yourself would be the only other option.

This site may be useful for this kind of information. 


After completion of the restauration of my MG BGT in 2000, I ordered the BMIHT Heritage Certificate. 

The kind of details you are looking for are likely in the register. 

Perhaps another source could by the Clausager book Original MGB:
