|Oily Hand's Life with MGs
It's been a super weekend weatherwise, which is just as well as I had to get the brakes sorted on the TA. Towards the end of last summer they were terrible. The fronts needed bleeding every time I went out in it. I've had the front cylinders re-sleeved with stainlees steel inserts, fitted new rubbers, linings and flexy hoses and hopefully all will now be well. Next weekend is a big event, The Beamish Reliability Trial, a 150 mile drive over the moors with some of the steepest climbs and descents in the area. Good brakes could be an advantage. Hopefully I'll have some pictures and maybe some video of the TA in action. The car is as ready as it will ever be, I just have to have the MOT done next week. Fingers crossed that I haven't missed anything as there won't be much time to get it sorted.
Hi, I'm Owen and I've been having fun with MGs since 1970, starting with my 1937 MGTA. Since then I've had three Y types and a couple of Z Magnettes. I now have a 1971 MGB GT along with the TA and my wife and I are still having fun
