New clutch is in, got the car back Thursday and drove it to work on Friday. Now 4 year olds on Big Wheels can no longer beat me off the line (drives me nuts when they look back over their shoulder and flip me the bird).

New clutch, resurfaced flywheel, new engine mounts, new seals all around on the engine, had the engine pressure washed & painted. AND, I can now drive at night again. The starter no longer fires when I turn on the headlights. I'm going to miss that feature...

That was a standard British Leyland feature for the North American market, as a punishment for inflicting us over here with those awful rubber bumpers that latter day MGB's had fitted.

;)

Glad to see that it's on the road again, and is it like the one's over here, driven by bearded blokes in their 50's whom have a liking for "real ale" :lol:

There are a couple of MG specialists near where I live, should you ever be stuck for a part.
