graham. i cannot believe i missed all that. for some reason i though the dates were a year out....one thing i just found that may be useful for you is this - the BMW gasket for the supercharger outlet is available pretty damned everywhere. i had thought the victor reinz was the only one available, and it's hard to find.see here....but you may know already.....ELRING 215.260https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Turbo-Charger-Gasket-17511520044-ELRING-215-260/312047271086?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649i initially made my own but found it was a bit weak along the thin stretches and blew a couple of times. the metal BMW one has been in now for over a year without any issues. and cheap enough to keep a couple on hand.one thing i could not work out is how you fit the T16 serpentine pulley to the crank pulley - did you lathe down the MGB pulley to get it to fit?G

Hi Graham, if you check the entry, "Two Steps Forward, One Step Back" at: http://www.mgexp.com/journal/grahamts/15348 you will see a picture of the adaptor that I made to fit the Rover pulley to the "B" crank pulley. It looks to be a complex profile, but in fact it is pretty simple, fitting inside the very large, late engine crank pulley with a large enough hole in the centre to clear the crank bolt. The crank pulley is fitted and tightened first then the adaptor is bolted to that with four bolts in counterbored holes, finally the Rover pulley is bolted to that with four shorter bolts.

Thanks for the Ebay link Graham, I have "watched" it in EBay for future reference, at the moment I am just slogging through trying to get the body work finished in a workshop which is ridiculously too small for the job. I get incredibly frustrated with only around two foot clearance on one side only.
