You can sign up for the Summer Party two ways:
See you in August!!!
A while back I stumbled upon this website. If you’re looking for the paint code for your car, you’ll most likely find it there!
Andy York picked up his restored American Spec V-8… But the trailer didn’t allow for the usual method of exiting the vehicle…
Last year I bought an MGC from GR auto and shipped it to Germany, it has been looked after by your good self and therefor in super condition.
My problem is that it is an Automatic and dumps oil all over the floor after a good run out. Apparently this is a common problem, but does not have a common fix.
In your experiance with Borg Warner Auto box and the MGC, where should I start?
I really don´t want to pull the engine out.
Also when cleaning the rocker cover I accidently damaged your “serviced by University Motors” aluminiun sitcker. any chance of getting a new one.
Regards from Germany
Send me your address and I’ll send along a couple of the octagonal plates.
You have the red MGC? If so, the previous owner had the gearbox worked on to alleviate the problem. I am truly unfamiliar with the automatics and I cannot begin to tell you where to start. Try to contact the American MGC Register — they have a lot of members with automatics and someone may be able to give you some information.
Send me the VIN so I can update my files — I assume it’s 7542
The VIN is indeed 7542, you have a good memory!
Its new home is with an eccentric Englishman at The oldtimer Park here in Germany. Your videos have caused quite a stir here, shame you are so far away I think you would be inundated with work.
Your information that the gearbox was overhauled is very useful, so I suspect the fault will be found with the ancillaries. I did notice the gearbox gets very hot so I will start my search with the oil cooler.
Thanks for the plates it will add value to the car. buy you a beer when I come over for another car.
Regards from Germany.

Steve Naert has his MGB in the shop for an engine rebuild. “While the engine is out, replace my fuel lines,” he said. “It will be easy,” he said.
For the record, this picture is photoshopped.
