Scott has taken a look at our 1971 MG Midget. He began by investigating the poor running issue, which he identified as being a dodgy distributor cap. After finding a cap off another car to try, Scott got it running. By played with timing and fuel mixture, Scott managed to get the MG started so that it was running nice and all seems well now. He then started doing a general check over as the customer has told us that it has sat for a while. Scott found that the diff-fill plug was really damaged and hard to remove so he had to weld a bar to it to remove and check the oil.
