Re: MGB rear axle seal

Thanks for this info. I refurbed my own axle, and have a slight weep on both sides. Makes me want to weep. Looking at receipts, I purchased 2 x GHS179 oil seals from Brown and Gammons. I guess I'll have to change them out. The oil isn't getting on the brake shoes, but there's a bead of oil at the bo...

Re: Correct style washer bottles

Thanks Roger - that makes sense. I'm thinking of re-doing my dash in aluminium with everything in the right place over the winter, so I will convert to the 2SJ in the process I think. The gear lever trim ring I have is square-edged, so I guess if I could even get a more rounded chrome one I would be...

Re: Correct style washer bottles

I'm a bit late to this thread - I got sold something pretty 'vintage' in a cardboard MOD box that had been rotting in one of Gerry's sheds for many years. He told me was the right thing to fit, so I fitted it. Not got any pics to hand right now, but it definitely isn't a 2SJ. It is a manually-pumped...

Re: Another new member

Welcome Allan! I started the same way as you - bought an engine first, then a welder to make a stand, then finally ordered the car from Gerry. Mine is a Ford 302 in a 289. If you're anywhere near Farnham, you'd be welcome to inspect and discuss it over some tea in my garage. While I built the engine...
