Re: 16" MG TF Alloys

I am struggling with posting photos, too. Any ideas, anyone? ... Either use a photo hosting site and paste the url using the Img button above with the url selected or use the attachments button below the typing space. In the last case you'll have to reduce the photo's size, but I don't know the lim...

Re: What have i done !!!!

... I cant get the steering wheel off ... Never needed a puller! Loosen nut but leave it on the shaft . Give the rim a few blows with your hand (spread around the rim) Than try to wriggle the wheel of the shaft (the nut is there to prevent the wheel from smashing your face) You might need some pene...

Re: Quality Issues

... It would be great to hear about which welds, panels, trim, switches, engine components etc were troublesome ... Looking at my current project ('76 FHC) I get the impression that overal quality control was lacking badly @ Speke, resulting in appalling panel fits. More info in my blog ( https://t...

Re: Completely Dead

First check the headlamp moves freely up and down using the turning knob underneath the lifting motor. Disconnect the battery before you do this, as otherwise the motor might kick in as it is not in one of the parking positions.

Re: POWER STEERING

Only problem I have ever head with the original steering rack is that it needs a lot of steering input (lots of 'wheel turning). Especially on the many really sharp bends/corners in this part of the world. That problem was solved many moons ago on 't Kreng. I fitted a quick rack to that car with abo...

Re: 2019 Events With Wedge Attendance

Only one entry in so far for this year, CT's 10 Countries Run 2019 from 4 till 7 September.
At least this one alone will add well over 2500 km to the car's odometer!
And a few local tours with some like minded friends sheduled in the border area (NL/B/D).
