far NW area. And the Vintage MG Car Club of Chicago has invited us again to the Tally Ho Rally, on July 10. Back is also the Autocross with the Austin Healey Club on June 5th. We'll talk more about that when the date gets closer, but if you feel the need for speed every so often, this is the date that you need to reserve.

BRAKE 'Tex" Session

A ‘Tex’ session, rather than a Tech session, brought to you by Dave “Cowboy” Bralich.

Here is something simple we can all do to keep our cars safe and fun to drive. On Sunday March 27, 2010, starting around 10:00 we will go over the simple task of replacing the front brake pads. The not quite as simple and straight forward but very doable by all of us, replacing the back brake shoes.

I will also be going to rebuild a set of brake calipers, replace the rear brake wheel cylinder. Even though this all will only take a few hours, we will continue up until 2:00- 3:00. This will allow the members who have higher priorities that morning to still come by and take advantage of the ‘tex’ session. If anyone wants to bring their own MG, we will be more than happy to work on it.

Where: 82 King Dr. Streamwood, IL 60102
When: March 27, 2011 10:00 – 3:00 pm
Contact: 630-289-7915

Tool Lending Program

Reminder... We have a list of Loaner Tools that the Chicagoland MG Club owns and maintains for use by its members. The intention of the club is to procure and hold some of the more expensive tools that folks may be hesitant to buy for themselves because of the expense and the limited usage by any one person. Check out the Tool Lending page on the club website.
