Still a bit down mentaly due to the Covid world we live in, but luckily we went through it pretty well.
A couple of pictures of major projects we are working on.
These are some pictures of an Alpine A310 4 cylinder that we got in boxes. I will not tell you how much medai was shipped with it...
1937 MG PB
MG TC cycle fender conversion
These are some pictures of the MGB project. If you're interested, please contact me with your questions. Open to offers. Customer can't pay the invoice, need to cover that amount or be close to it.
All rust issues have been taken care off. New floors and inner and outer sills. All parts as listed and pictured are available. I don't think the right front fender is good. Maybe that will be provided later on by the customer.
Got original transmission and a rebuilt one with overdrive still in the box.
Joe is converting an MGB GT to spin on wire wheels. So far so good, with the exception on the wire wheels. 4 out of five are no good....So the car will sit on the rack for a while....
40 DCOE 34 and 35
Tim's new tool at work.
It was worth the time spend on making the adapter. We now can measure the dwell and offset of the spark timing on each set of points.
As is was set up we had a good 8 crank degrees angle between the sparks. Rendering the second spark effect to around zero. We now are at about 1.5 crank degrees. Our Sun machine measures distributor degrees, so it's about....
Engine is starting to look like an engine again.
Ran- without oil pressure- when we took it apart.
Just to make sure everything to the smallest detail is up to snuff, Tim made an adapter for the Magneti Marelli double point distributor of the Maserati yesterday. Now we can check both systems individually and set the offset of both points according to the book.
Not long after I posted the MG PBG Mille Miglia pictures yesterday, I got a message from the owner of the PB pictured. He did it with the same car in 2019, and is hoping to participate again in 2022. Just a compliment for the car, that it is up to the grueling conditions of that event. Also hats off for the driver and co driver. It certainly would not a comfortable ride in my eyes.
Thanks Hans!! Great picture
MG PB in the Mille Miglia
OK. Here I go.....
As a face book friend calls me, a Bernoulli effect guy in an Air Flow Mass meter era, I sweat by the idea of doing this. Blogging! Not even sure if I understand the real meaning of the word, but the way I understand, and will use it, is a means to keep interested readers informed of what is going on at Vintage Sports Car.
A kind of updating you on the projects we work on. I know, I have not done much of that lately.
Right now the most actual thing going on in the shop is the sale of the 1935 MG PB on Bring a trailer.
What is not mentioned in the text (yet) is that the car is Mille Miglia eligible . I have some pictures from 2011 and 2012 of PB entered and participating in that rally. This car will without very much doubt ( after all it's an Italian event!) accepted and run with a fairly low starting number. That means early starts and less traffic jams, greatly adding to the fun to have by the driver and co driver.
I hope you can enjoy the pictures. It was a wonderful thing to be part of it in the past. 7 cars we serviced during the MM over the years, all of them finished and were qualified at the end.
