Stripping Down – Strip Down and Rebuild the Carburettors on the 1972 MG Midget

The carburettors on the 1972 MG Midget have been stripped down and cleaned to get the classic convertible running properly.

Upon inspection, the team noted that the needles fitted to the carburettors were incorrect. So, new ones were placed on order. Whilst waiting for the new units to arrive, our technician Jon stripped apart the carburettors and thoroughly cleaned them through.

Once the correct needles had arrived, Jon could get them set correctly in the bodies and then could begin to refit them onto the engine of the classic MG.

Progress – Servicing, Fixing the Fuel Sender and Carburettor Leak on the 1972 MG Midget

The 1972 MG Midget has been in the Bridge Classic Cars workshop to have its several bits of work carried out.

Firstly, our workshop team have completely serviced the classic roadster and along with that have replaced the points and condenser in the distributor.

Next up, the team wanted to look into a small leak from the front carburettor which had been noted. When inspected, our technician Jon found one of the carburettor jet tubes had become seized in the Cold Start position and caused the leak. After gently freeing off the tube, he reassembled the unit and tested it. All ok.

Then it was time for Jon to lower the fuel tank out of the car to get to the bottom of an issue with the fuel sender. After removing the unit from the inside of the tank, Jon could carry out the necessary repairs and refit everything back into the car.
