Re: Wanted: rebuilt mgb axle

Hi, just saw your wanted ad for an MGB axle. I have a wire wheel one in my garage that I originally bought from Gerry at Hawk cars. It was refurbished by his mechanic and at a guess has done approx 3k miles since. It was replaced by an MGC axle as I wanted a higher diff ratio and has sat in my garag...

I called the ticket hotline and they told me my ticket was an 'early bird' ticket and admits two people. Regarding the in-field car pass they said that the car club was organising that...

Re: Brake Calipers

Hi David, Reading through this thread again makes me think there might be something wrong with the way your handbrake cable is attached to the calipers. Difficult to say exactly what but as a longshot a strain the wrong way on the handbrake lever might cause a seal failure there. Is it possible to p...

Re: Brake Calipers

Hi David, I have the same setup as you on the rear axle, albeit I have vented discs and I think you have single discs. I have had no problems with the Sierra calipers on my rear discs, although I do know they were brand new when fitted and not reconditioned. There must have been thousands of cars us...
