MGB Double Declutching

My 1977 MGB is a great car for learning how to heel and toe double declutch when downshifting just like the race car drivers of yesterday. A smooth heel and toe downshift is an art form and really helps on the twisty bits where balance and control are helpful

What happens in the transmission when you double clutch / Heel Toe Downshift???
Trying to do everything in one take is nerve racking, as it's nearly impossible to do perfectly. Minor corrections: I said the clutch pedal and throw out bearing are not wear items, I meant not high wear items, compared to the clutch disk. Also, when I mention buying a cheap car to practice, I mean if you own a manual transmission track car that is not your daily driver. Finally, I didn't talk about the syncros. You can do this with one clutch pedal action, but you make the syncros speed up the intermediate shaft. When you double clutch, you bring the intermediate shaft up to speed with the clutch disc, which has more capacity to do so than the synchros. Minor point, but you will see prolonged synchro life when you double clutch. Also, it is not the mass of the servo or engine but the power created by electricity of gasoline that is responsible, but the mass is responsible for the inertia.

1974 Midget - Removing the Clutch
The goal of this particular project is to get the car roadworthy. A know condition prior to us getting the car was that the clutch needed to be replaced. However, it turns out that the throw-out bearing was shredded and was actually the cause of the failure. The clutch plate itself was actually in good shape. Not a wasted effort though, we would have had to do the same thing to repair that as well. This way everything will be replaced and that will be solid for a good while.

Work on my MGB by Classic Car Services, MGOC recommended
If you view this video on fullscreen you might appreciate the workmanship better!! I purchased my MGB in 1999. Late 2007 I decided to give it a facelift so chose Classic Car Services, Ledian Farm Industrial Estate, Leeds, Maidstone from my MG Owners Club recommended directory. There were several times I had to return to the garage because of things I was unhappy with. The bonnet did not fit as good as the old one. The overdrive did not work after a new wiring loom was fitted, it was suggested that I had been driving around since 1999 with overdrive on, it transpired that they had not connected it correctly. I later found the windscreen heating ducting was missing. I thought the general finish on the car was very poor and was better before I took the car to Classic Car Services. I had the opportunity to let MG Owners Club know of my feelings on an online questionnaire they ask members to complete annually. In January 2010 the car, which is garaged had a flurry of snow on the boot lid for 2 days, when this melted it left the surface pock marked. I contacted MGOC to ask for advice, they suggested I contact the garage. When I contacted Classic Car Services in January they remembered me and asked me to take the car to them for inspection which I did. I was told it was a paint defect and they would respray the boot after sanding back in February or March (Free of charge). By 22nd of March I had not heard from them so gave them a call, they couldn't remember telling me they could repair the paint in February / March but are in the middle of a job right now and would repair the paint in April. By this time the paint had flattened but still left imperfections on the boot lid which I told them about. It is now June 2010 and I have heard nothing from Classic Car Services so decided to replace parts on my car which were given to me as Christmas presents. I am still finding things wrong with my MGB which were not there before using this MG Owners Club recommended dealer.
