Getting Our MGB Running

Classic car technician Scott has been working on our 1971 MGB Convertible recently.

After being off the road for a considerable length of time, there are several issues that need to be resolved before this classic MG can get back on the road again.

Scott began by sorting an issue with the fuel pump. He replaced the lines, drained the old fuel and replaced it with new. He was then able to get the car running.

A leak on the carbs was fixed and the brakes were stripped and checked. Scott cleaned and regreased the rear brakes before running our MGB up to temperature and test-driving it around the grounds surrounding the Bridge Classic Cars workshop.

The water pumper will need to be replaced so Scott removed this and prepared the car for the arrival of the new pump.

Finally, Scott gave the underside of the vehicle a clean and applied rust protection to any bare areas.
