Good stuff, good sound. I see hood pins and side markings, is this rebuild a high performance motor?

Thanks for the Kudos, Gents.
Ahmed, I already uploaded the video on youtube. Thanks for the observation.

I modified the B some years ago for vintage racing events. But now I just detuned the engine a little bit in order to use pump gas again. She is.coming back to the streets and curvy roads.

Love it!

Hope you really enjoy that car.

Love my MG. The chief mechanic needs serious help but the owner is ok.

So the rear doesn't beat you around the corner. That road screams caution to me. Lovely note Juan Carlos, you must be happy.

1968 MGB Purchased already dis-assembled but which is largely back together so I'm a lot less ignorant.

Hello buddies, thanks for your words. I'm very glad to be here againagain in the Forum

In reply to # 3756663 by Probie Would like to see pics of your B.

@Probie: I'm attaching two pictures: in the second one you'll notice I'm in the process of returning the car to the streets. I'm ready to install the real doors. There is still a lot of work to do: upholstery, painting, etc.
