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.
Give new life to your MGB! With the aid of nearly 1,400 illustrations, and a text aimed at the do-it-yourselfer, this information-packed volume provides detailed, step-by-step information on everything you need to renovate your MGB body, interior, upholstery, engine, and electrical components. Contains complete and detailed information on how to build a Heritage MGB, and tells how to buy an MGB, MGC or MGB V8 and the pitfalls to avoid. The finest MGB restoration book published to date.
MG expert Roger Parker gives his advice on maintaining and modifying MGB, GT and GTV8 cars, with some additional reference to the MGC and MG RV8 models.
With safety information throughout, the book covers: regulations, insurance and market value for all models; routine maintenance; body and interior changes; brakes, suspension and steering; engine improvements for the original 1798cc B-series engine and other engine alternatives and finally, installing and updating electrical equipment and lighting.
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.
