December 9th, 2022 – MGB comes out to PLAY!
My Winter MG Blues
While driving those last days, I started thinking about how much I will miss her this winter. I figure that if I can wrench on the MGB, I can also write a poem about her. So, this is my poem, titled, My Winter MG Blues:
Montreal MG Car Club’s Late October Picture Taking/Barbeque Day
We were lucky since the Smoking Bull was almost empty and we had the main dining room all to ourselves. It was a southern cooking affair including southern jazz background music. After lunch we headed down for one last group picture before we all headed home in opposite directions.

Just a Drive… The Love of an MGB
But it was a cool sunny autumn day. My wife and I decided to take down the covers on the gazebos, re-arrange the shed for winter and pack away all the stuff outside that needs to be protected from old man winter. That took a few hours and then my wife left to visit with Storm, her horse.
MGB Brakes – Part 3 Installation of EBC Pads and Rotors, Rebuilt Calipers and Dust Cover
I had a few issues during this install of the EBC brakes and rebuilt calipers. The biggest issue is that the company who rebuilt my calipers put in the wrong size seals, and they leaked. Like everywhere! So here I was on a Thursday morning with new brakes but leaky calipers. I could not go anywhere, even if I had a special place to be.
MGB Vinyl Top Repair
I did the quick fix, Gorilla Tape. Also, the strap that snaps over the frame on the passenger side, came apart. So today I am going to do the proper fix.
My Birthday Drive
Today I went on a Birthday Drive with Michel and his new Miata. We stopped in Perth for a sandwich and coffee then again on the way home at The Swan on the Rideau for a drink and some appetizers. The Swan gave me a surprise Birthday mocha cheesecake at no charge.
MGB Center Console – Elbow Pain
A gentleman from the United States named Michael Ruckman has done something GREAT to help with this elbow pain.
Removing two SU Carburetors from MGB
These two carburetors are off the Island Automation for a full re-build and I am anxious to hear their comments andany issues that they find during the rebuild process. So, below is my video on
how to remove the SU Carburetors form an MGB. Fun!
MGB Starter Falling Off, Cooling and Fluids, but still riding
I tapped the starter and solenoid and the car started, it still turned slowly, but my excellent tuning skills (lol) paid off because she started with one crank at 5 degrees Celsius outside.
