The end nut and a pinion spring were missing, but it looked OK otherwise.I was able to find NOS Lucas items on e Bay and got them in earlier this week.It was primed and looked clean on the inside, so I think it may be cracks at the bottom on both sides. Next weekend's show is probably out, though.7 - Getting There - While you might not see any difference between the last post picture and this one, there has been some real progress.I have the tank end panels swapped over, new rubber packing glued to the body, and the new fittings and filter installed on the bottom of the tank.One disappointment - I bought the correct rubber packing for the tank and found that I can't use the frame pads.
I need to get Wildflower's starter together - I have been holding for a new MGB exhaust donut to augment the flat copper exhaust manifold gasket, but have it on hand now.7 - Off to a Bad Start-er - The new starter arrived right after Thanksgiving, but a comparison of the two starters (above left) revealed some major differences.
It is one of a series of 'favourite motor car stories' published in 1986, and tells teh story of a 'Mr.
Greyhair' who has gotten too old to drive, and must pass his TC along to a collector.
So I am trying a desperate measure to get the TC going.
I cleaned off the leak area on the old tank, wire brushed it, and sealed the entire area with gas tank sealer putty.
