MGB Engine Rebuild
December 6, 2003 - Downers Grove, IL

MG oil pump disassembled Yup, the first engine tech session happened, as we did some diagnostic work, then pulled the engine out of John Schroeder’s MGB and proceeded to disassembled it (the engine, not the car). See cover photo. We found a stuck starter Bendix, one slightly damaged cam lobe, and badly worn valve guides. The reassembly session haes been scheduled for January 24th, allowing time for machine work on the block and head, and time to order the required parts. See separate announcement.

To be continued on January 24
