I just noticed the "journal" section... thought I'd start one to let you guys follow along as I attempt to learn about the joys of owning a MGB.
A little background - a week ago (May 6, 2018) my dad dropped off his 1975 MGB at my house along with the title, a box of spare windshield wipers and miscellaneous parts, a box of books and papers about MGs, all his MG related trinkets, and paperwork on all the recent work done on it. He decided that after 16 years of owning the car, he wanted me to have it.
Back in 2003 he and I installed a supercharger kit with headers and larger exhaust. Over the years body panels were replaced or repaired. A few years ago he had the engine rebuilt, brakes and suspension worked on, and just last year he put on a new top.
Basically he handed me a MGB that doesn't really need much of anything done to it. Only thing is that it needs a new alternator... which I attempted to do today, only to realize I need a pulley puller which I will have to go pick up tomorrow. Bummer.
Anyway - there ya have it - hopefully this will be interesting.
