In reply to # 3901945 by JADCRUISER MGB 1967 Front suspension finish
sand blast, powder coating, refresh shocks, new rubbers, new bearings, new steering rack , new calipers, new king pin bushes, new coil springs

I just started my tear down for the same job, this is inspirational. I don't think mine will be quite as beautiful, but something to strive for, at least I have my high water mark set.


Best,

Graham

Replace the brake MC, all three rubber flex hoses, flushed and bled the lines, and drank lots of beer. Compressed the pedal overnight. Hopefully tomorrow's bleed test is sufficient and can go for a drive!

Got the defroster hoses attached and ready to install (Buick). They accordion, so I can fit them to the heater box and actually see if they are connected! Can't wait to have an actually working screen heater.

Got the rear speaker enclosure covered today. I know, you purists don’t need no stinkin radio, but I do. So I did.
Also got the rear cockpit surround trim on. Much easier than I thought it would be. I think the trick is to use 3m 77 spray on as it isn’t quite as agressive when fresh as the brush on kind, allowing you to reposition a bit if need be, and it was needed.

I've been slowly working away at restoring the odometer and speedometer on my 64 MGB. The front edge of the housings rusted over time, and as I opened up the speedometer, I discovered the teeth on the trip-reset gear were worn down to nothing. Likely this is from not pushing in the trip reset knob to engage the gears fully or operating it while the car is moving.

I doubt the gear is available, so instead, I drew it up in Fusion 360 and my uncle offered to try 3D printing in a few different plastics to see which one will work the best.

Decided to do an oil change today. Did the usual. try to catch the used oil. Let the car sit for some time to drain fully. Reinstalled the plug with new crush washer, opened up a new NAPA GOLD 1068 and installed. A little stiff but it seemed to seat ok. installed 4.5 litres of 20W50 and started the engine to circulate. No pressure build up. Stopped the engine and was amazed at how much oil was pouring out of the oil filter all over the garage floor. I had the B parked on a tarp so most will be caught and clear up will be minimum. Removed the new filter and tried to thread on the old Napa 1068. It to was stiff and spewed oil. I guess I have damaged the oil filter head. Tomorrows task is to buy a 3/4'-16 bolt and nut to try and see whether i can save the filter head and to pre test any future filters. Another one for Napa 1068. Oh. Also have to clean up. I was so pissed off I left the oil on the tarp. It was going anywhere.

New dog leg which also happens to be the final piece! Now i guess I try my hand in filler/sanding to smooth it out.

I am curious Keith, at to why everyone fitting remote battery posts seems to be fitting an earth terminal when there are already sacks of earthing points available.



It's not a car...It's an Adventure! (apologies to Casey Ryback)

Just so it looks balanced I guess. Also it's right there so quick hook up.

Kim,

It also looks as if the terminals Keith fitted are the same as I used. They came in pairs, one red and one black, and I assume that a dedicated terminal could be a better connection than the nut or bolt attaching the earth wire, and of course, it makes it more accessible.
