    Re: Roadster swb MGB engine and gearbox help

    Interesting project behind the Marlin. From past experience, it is better to get the engine sorted before surrounding it with pannels. They do restrict access. I do believe that over about 60 MPH...

    I have a stack of them, but I must say I don't like the new ones as much as the old hardback ones. The new thinner cheaper (?) paper and paperback don't seem as easy to understand. Or maybe I just...

    Re: New Marlin owner

    My opinion, for what its worth. Do what you have to to get it running and put some miles on it. Then you will know what it needs and you will know a lot more about it.

    Re: Motorbike Milly

    Lovely story. Looking at your collection of shifting spanners, I have a few of them myself. Mostly useless compared to a Bahco but a tribute to man's ingenuity.

    Re: Unfinished Sportster on eBay

    If you have the skills why not? But do not underestimate the task. The V8 is probably recoverable and saleable. Or rebuild and complete the Sportster as it is and sell the BMW bits. For what it is...

    One option would be to lay up the original engine and gearbox for (much) later and fit a newer one to use.

    My local garage threatened to excomunicate me if I got a PT. Aparently they are a bitch to work on and the spares are very expensive. The cario does look unfinished.

    No engine pictures. Not properly registered could be a big problem. It does look like a barn find maybe a relative's old car. I wonder if the seller is reading this?

    Re: Project roadster on eBay.

    Oh, I know that feeling, maybe we made someone think it was a good idea and they drove down and bought it. With a bit of luck we will hear from them soon. Now we wait for the next dreamboat. Dave
