Previously on the 1973 MG B GT V8, we were installing the electric fans to help keep that freshly rebuilt V8 cool. Another integral part of the engine is its oiling system.

Our master engine-builder Ady fitted a remote oil filter housing to the MG’s engine bay. To help with the oil feed of the refreshed V8 in the MG B, he needs to add a specialised small fitting to connect up to the hardlines.

With the fitting now in place and hardlines bent up to meet the new fitting, it could be installed into the engine bay safely tucked out the way.

Next up for the MG B GT V8 will be its first fire. Keep an eye out on the News Page for more updates.
