Engine And Lights

Our 1971 MGB Convertible has been the focus of classic car technicians John and Jonn recently as they have been fitting a new alternator and completing other work on the car too.

New headlights were fitted to our MGB Convertible. Before this was done though, the ring surrounds were cleaned and polished. After the new lights were fitted, the beam patterns were adjusted and the chrome surrounds were re-fitted.

MOT Prep

Our 1971 MGB Convertible has been with classic car technician Jonn, ready to get it prepared to go through an MOT.

As this beautiful classic car had been off the road for quite some time, it came into the Bridge Classic Cars workshop for our team of technicians to get it back into road-worthy condition. Now that the work has been completed, and the car is ready to go back to its owner, it has gone through one final check to make sure it can pass its MOT.

The offside rear wheel bearing was adjusted ready for a new split pin and wheel to be fitted.

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.

The Workshop Is Filling Up – Another New Arrival

It’s no secret that everyone here at Bridge Classic Cars loves an MG! In particular, the MGB has proven to be extremely popular with the team here and with our customers too.

That’s just one of the reasons why we are excited to welcome our 1971 MGB Convertible into the workshop. We have it with us to investigate and resolve several issues that its owner has been experiencing.

After being rebuilt in 1998, it has been used infrequently and was SORN from 2009 through to 2019. Now that it has come out of storage, the list of issues to look at include a broken sender on the petrol tank, fitting a new battery, finding out why the radiator is losing water, and repair the faulty spline on the spare wheel.

The car will also undergo a full valet and will be prepared to MOT level.
