MGB Repair Manual 1962-1980

MGB Repair Manual 1962-1980

Review:

Fowler and Haynes have done a fabulous job of photographing and documenting the complete disassembly and reassembly of an MGB. Since most parts are identical from '64-'80, it will cover just about everything you need to know about working on your MG. If you are not British then some of the terms can be a bit confusing but you should know the lingo anyway. Or so say the purists. The book is inexpensive enough to buy 2 copies, one for the shop and one for in the house (so you can keep it clean). Just the money I saved in doing my first brake job on an MG paid for the cost of the book and then some. There still is no substitute for having an Abingdon mechanic looking over your shoulder but this is a great second option.

Review:

I have owned and worked on MG's of one sort or another for more than fifteen years, with my 65 MGB being my longest lasting car (outlasted my marriage). I bought this book hoping that it may give me some ideas as to improve my old friend. Well, I was deluged with vague references as to what would work, how to do things and many bad photographs. I was impressed with the amount of upgrades that are available in the U.K., but very disappointed to the amount of material that was devoted to outlandish and totally inappropriate modifications to the classic MGB. These modifications are well out of the scope of the average owner to accomplish and probably out of the price range of most vintage racers. If you are looking for a book that will help you get the most out of your MGB get a good service manual such as the Bentley manuals, or the Guide to DIY restoration of the MGB. Both of these books more clearly demonstrate proven examples of modifications that can be carried out by the novice to intermediate skilled owner. If anyone is still interested in this book, mine will be on sale shortly. Thanks for letting me vent... Semper Fi!!


How to Power Tune the MGB 4-cylinder Engine

How to Power Tune the MGB 4-cylinder Engine

Review:

This book belongs in every MGB owner's library. Its information is accurate and reliable. Peter Burgess well deserves his reputation as the master among MGB Tuners, and his book makes it obvious as to why and how he has come to be considered to be so.
