Re: Perfect Donor (Hawk)

Hi Allan, It is good you are giving your project plenty of thought. Hawk has a long lead time for kits currently so it is worthwhile paying the deposit to get your name on the list. At this stage you don't need to confirm specification so it will allow you to further your research. If you want an Ac...

Re: Splined hubs

Changing engine and gearbox etc is one of the most costly upgrades / changes (chassis mods for mounts, new exhaust and and and) If you are building an Ace replica then you could probably stick with what you have. If its a Cobra replica I'm not going to say I told you so but...... Just refer back to ...

Re: Splined hubs

Having had some experience with Bee Keeping Associations I totally agree with your comments. Sticking with a standardised build is a good way to minimise costs! When you go off piste there are numerous risks involved and it normally means duplication and retrospective substitution. There's got to be...

Re: Splined hubs

I don't think the rostyle hubs and splined hubs vary that much in weight, I've had both in my hands at the same time. In the scheme of things the difference in weight in the complete live axle assembly is going to be the square route of not a lot irrespective of alloy or steel hubs. I've seen a skim...

Re: New member

Smooth Hammerite in an aerosol is Ok, you need to build up in thin layers. Simonez tough satin black is also good and a bit cheaper. Not used primer with either and it is fine. I also zinc plate and zinc passivate smaller parts using a Gateros kit. Let's you reuse older bolts too. I use Evaporust an...

Re: New member

I think you might be in luck that the MG and Triumph 2.5l 6 both use HS6's.
If in doubt speak to an SU specialist and see what they advise. SU have a phone number an I think they still manufacture the carbs out of Salisbury.

Re: Front Springs

No problem. If you donate a bale of hay for £5. You can have them. I don't want anything for them and if it helps feed some rescue animals then I'm good with that. They will also be better than some new Chinese ones for £30. With the standard MGB set up you just need to be mindful of the indicator m...
