I'm finding I have too many projects, not enough time, and am losing
enthusiasm. I also started blowing apart my MGB in prep for the sill
and transmission repairs, and I could use more room to work. I put
a TON of work into the midget over the last two years, but apparently
the new clutch or throwout bearing I installed is defective or improperly
installed or something. The car runs well and drives, but it does need to
be pulled to see what's going on. There's a weird rattle / vibration thing going on.
Unfortunately, I am in the midst of replacing 50 year old windows in the
house, and am having another crisis as the plumbing has been developing
pin hole leaks. (When it rains it pours?) Add to that a new consulting
arrangement that requires a lot of time, and I have just got too much on
my plate to be worrying with the Midget. I just want to sell the car,
and give the money to my son who's looking to buy his first car.
The Midget has completely redone brakes, new wheel cylinders, new brake
hoses (all three), new brake master cyl, rebuilt calipers, new brake
rotors, new wheel bearings, new slave cyl & hose, rebuilt transmission,
new main wiring harness, replaced oil/press gauge and tach (all working
now), new fuse box, new headlight switch, new seats, freshly painted
engine with new timing cover and oil pan seals & gaskets, new hoses,
thermostat, new water pump & belt, new SU fuel pump, rebuilt SU carbs,
distributor rebuilt and recurved by Advanced Distributors, new top (needs installed) &
Prior to me getting the car, the rockers / sills were redone, and the
kingpins were replaced. Tons of receipts.
If interested, come see it soon (Baltimore), or email me for pix.
