31 Members in attendance
CMGC President Ray Hansen opened the meeting at 8:00 pm and welcomed visitor Honey Gaylord.
Steve Sparks was having difficulty with a bouncing speedometer needle in his 1965 Midget. The removed speedometer has been returned ready to be installed –cost was $175 for the speedometer and $100 for the trip odometer. The work was performed by Nisonger Instruments in Mamaroneck, NY. He also plans on replacing the speedometer cable.
Seth Jones noted that his restoration is still in progress and is currently working on rebuilding the rear axle assembly.
Dave Bralic replaced existing single-line brake system with a dual-line system. He successfully rebuilt the system and had all the necessary parts. He replaced the brake lines in the process. Final connections are now being made. Dave also purchased car seats from Procar (procarbyscat.com). The problem with after-market seats is that it is difficult to find seat cushions narrow enough to fit in the MG. The Procar seats work fine. Now all he must do is attach them to the car frame.
