The MGB was the most successful British sports car of all time, selling more than half a million examples over a production life of eighteen years. It has always represented fun driving at realistic prices, and remains well within reach of the average motorist today. The complete story of the B is set firmly in the context of the MG company’s eventful history, and there are new insights into the personalities and politics behind the development of Britain’s most popular sports car. Contains numerous specially-commissioned photographs, technical analyses, driving impressions and practical information on buying and owning a MGB.
Written from hands-on experience gained from the complete strip-down and rebuild of an MGB in our project workshop, this manual can help you understand, care for and repair your MGB. We do it ourselves to help you do-it-yourself, and whatever your mechanical ability, practical step-by-step explanations, linked to over 900 photos, will help you get the job done right. Regular servicing and maintenance of your MGB can help its resale value, save you money and make it safer to drive.
This book is essential reading for every MGB enthusiast. The mechanical aspects and the restoration of the vehicle have been written about in numerous publications but the so often maligned electrical systems has never before been comprehensively covered. For those new to vehicle electrical systems the book provides a simple primer using mechanical analogies. Each system in the car has its own chapter, with simple and uncluttered circuit diagrams in which each wire can be seen in its real colours. More than a how-to-do guide, the book also explains the why of each system and procedure, aiding diagnostics when things don t go quite as they should. The many fault finding guides help pin those elusive problems down. For those wishing to improve the car for reliability and safety.
