Magnificent Machines - The Golden Age of the British Sports Car
Broadcast by the BBC in 2012, showcasing some superb cars via period and modern footage, this is a brilliant programme. Grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy. Well done to all those involved in this episode.
Timeshift sets its rear view mirror to look back at the golden age of the British sports car. It's the story of how - in the grey austerity of the post-war years - iconic marques like Jaguar, Austin-Healey, MG and Triumph sparked a manufacturing frenzy that helped to democratise speed and glamour.
From the MG Midget, much loved by American GIs, through to the more affordable Austin Healey 'frog-eye' Sprite, and the E-Type Jaguar, seen by many as the ultimate sports car, this is a tale of how, for a brief time, Britain was home to two-seater heaven.
Narrated by Tamsin Greig and featuring contributions from Stirling Moss and Quentin Willson.
MGB crankshaft repair
Removing a high-point burr from a bearing journal. It was caused when the engine was rebuilt previously. The piston rod had been forcibly rammed onto the journal during reassembly. This wrecked the bearing, but luckily not the crank.
Chris at CK Motor engineers in High Wycombe is the clever man carrying out the repair.
Supercharged MGB night drive
This is my 1973 MGB. Miles are at 66,000 original, with original mallard green paint (hence the rubber duck on the dash). Me and "Ducky" are just tooling around in the cool, cold wet weather, as all ducks enjoy doing. I apologize for the swishing noise in the video; I edited out as much as I could. I will also post a daytime video soon, work and weather permitting. Modifications to the car are as follows:
-Peco Exhaust and header
-Fidanza 9lb aluminum flywheel from Hap Waldrop (www.acmespeedshop.com)
-Sean Brown "fast road" cylinder head (www.flowspeed.com)
-Oversized intake valves
-Eaton M45 Supercharger from Moss Motors (www.mossmotors.com)
-2.60" diameter Supercharger pulley from Moss Motors (www.MossMotors.com)
-HIF6 SU carb from Moss Motors (www.mossmotors.com)
-Oval K&N filter from David Anton (www.aptfast.com)
-Pertronix Ignitor electronic ignition with Flame Thrower coil
-Distributor rebuilt and recurved to facilitate supercharging by Jeff Schlemmer (www.advanceddistributors.com)
She isn't a speed demon, but she has surprised many people who don't expect so much from an old, fussy, British car. Traction was limited by the weather and my right foot, since I didn't want a speeding ticket.
Also, thank you to all the guys (and gals) at www.mgexperience.net, for all of their help and support they offer on keeping these little beasts on the road.
