More ground clearance and more noise :shock:

Re: Drivetrain noise

Hi Simon, Can you post a picture of the cut out for the prop at the rear end of the transmission tunnel? There is a hell of a lot of travel on the MGB axle and the cut out may seem large enough for the prop, even if you have a panhard rod and anti tramp bars there's a bit of movement vertically and ...

Re: MGB Donor Car

Thanks Stu, Just the sort of comprehensive info I was hoping for! 1. MGB or Jag IRS: Choosing MGB would seem to make registration easier. In fact how could I comply without using them? 2. Gerry's tubular wishbone upgrade with coil over shocks: I had wanted to go down this route but will it make 1. ...

Re: MGB Donor Car

Re: MOT and Emissions

I always take my last test cert and the V5C whenever I go for an MOT. Saves a great deal of hassle.

Re: IRS Jaguar springs rate

Hi there, Could you advise which rear shaft hits what frame? Also plenty are of the opinion that the standard springs from Gerry are too firm, as a result some try their own ratings. I have the standard springs from Gerry that come with the Gaz shocks and have found them to be the right length and s...
