I have followed your troubles with the rear engine seal-Now I hope that all is solved, and you run on the Normandy roads .
I also have my trouble on sail boat, the engine sea water pump haved a failure in the bronze melting and a crack appeared in surface a lot of water come in,
I wasn't in condition to repair it- so decided to return to home port, now is all resolved with a spare pump, but holidays was strongly reduced.
the good news is that before to sail, I have concluded the acquisition of the MG TC in Milan - it is at home, engine is in working conditions, and I am working on brakes, the differential have a bad song when the car was unloaded, i am very worry about it, fortunately- the differential(dismantled) is in splendid shape, pinion bronze bearing are in very good condition as the others parts. The origin of the horrendous song was a half shaft modified by the PO ---with a flex-
ordered TWO news- i hope to have the car on the road
at december a lot of bureaucratic works is needed
(car haven't no plates and no documents) and Italy are the kingdom of the bureaucracy...
Compliments, you are nearest of finish your car
and drive it
I need a help!
where are the location of the number engraved in the chassis on MG TC?
Find one TC of the first lot, 1945- arrived in Italy from Montecarlo (F) barn- conditions are very similar at your
I hope to settle the purcase
A friend and I stayed in one Gite each whilst on holiday in my MG YB. We had four good nights and visits to Le Mans Museum, Le Manoir de l'Automobile et des Vieux Metiers in Loheac. We also had morning and early part of afternoon exploring Angers prior to moving onto Le Mans and also looked around Chateaubriant town sadly the Chateau was shut on Tuesday of our visit. I got to view TC for real on Thursday prior to visiting Loheac.
The Gites I recommend and hospitality was excellent. Thanks Norman and Lynne for your hospitality. Look forwards to seeing the outcome of the TC on the daily blog.
Compliments !!GREAT JOB-GREAT DAY Norman
Engine is a bizzarre pieces set
I Remember, my E type engine won't start -never in more than 20 attempts- I decide then to call the boss of the local City Bus Co. ,considered the TOP of engineering
It came in the garage ask to tray to start the jaguar
ask to STOP after few seconds- put his handle in the engine bay, turn the distributor cap of 180 degree-
the engine start immediately at the following attempt-
For the electrical tests, I have find that a 12V -max 10A
with automatic fuse, source
(a simply little battery charger)
is better than the battery-no smoke -no sparks- no fuse blown - also the Lamp tester helped a lot for follow the electricity around the wires to destination
I am one of the passionate followers of your TC adventure
