Hi folks, I normally lurk over in the T series world but am asking here on behalf of a "class mate".

We are taking a class in British Auto Care here in Buffalo, NY and he has a MGA with a "removed" Twin Cam engine.

He is looking for specs of the engine to allow an evaluation for a rebuild, especially the head thickness.

Thanks in advance.

Peter

Thank you! I have read several of Barney's articles in the past as many years ago I had agreed to buy a Twin Cam MGA from a plumber in Hawaii, the next day he insisted his wife wanted 50% more than our agreed price.

I walked away and ended up with a nice TD instead.

Again thanks, I will give him these link.

Thank you, I found that and am downloading it onto a USB stick for the guy.

I don't think he is very computer savvy so I am even offer to print it up.

I have my TF manual in PDF and print the section up and take it to the shed when I need it, thinking of setting up an old PC with printer out there and stealing the WiFi from the apartment above, after all I do pay for it.

I saw a keyboard in plastic the other day, that would work, and one less PC in the basement would please SWMBO too!

Again thanks folks, I will get him on here somehow.
