My first MG is the '67 listed. I took it to college and proceeded to destroy it over the years... college being worst on it. Subsequently, I turned it into an auto-x car and have just retired it due to the, er, flagrant body lightening (rust holes). I've owned 19 cars and still have 9 of them and a '67 Beezer A65, starting with air-cooled VW's and the '67B. I adore racing but no budget either in money or time... maybe someday.

July 25, 2009 - Day one. 3:00 pm Pacific: I poured a couple ounces of (previously open) DOT brake fluid in a regulation Planters Salted Roasted Cashew jar. This I followed by a couple ounces of DOT5 brake fluid. The DOT5 clearly floats on top of the DOT3 and there is a distinct demarcation line... Then I swirled them together (No violent shaking, please. This is a SERIOUS experiment!). They mixed into a more or less uniform cloudy purpley grey mass that seems to be just as "fluid" as either ...

Other than the bother of doing a brake job in the first place, replacing the wheel cylinders is a big PITA, mostly due to the fact that they are retained by a spring clip instead of a screw. I sourced new units frrom the B-hive. They were made in Italy and the factory obviously didn't look at the install to select the spring clip because it comes with a giant e-clip that is flat out impossible to fit. In retrospect, the whole job would be much easier on a workbench or in the vise. However,...
