MGB Roadster in the New Forest
An edited version of a short trip in the New Forest in my 1970 MGB Roadster
(red, chrome bumpers, wire wheels, walnut dash and overdrive). Sister in
car with me (aged 13, hence some odd utterances), and my phone was taking
the video attached to the windscreen by a tacky, cheap, plasticky thing I
bought off Amazon for all of £5.99, hence the rather shaky video.
1966 MGB with a Rover V8 - Episode 1 - The "Slipped Liner"
Ken Smith of Kenzmyth Productions takes a turn as talent in the short video
of what to look out for in the early Rover V8 engines with possible
"slipped liners", also known as inserts or sleeves. His 1966 MGB V8
conversion project developed this problem necessitating the removal of the
Rover 3.5 liter engine and trashing of the aluminum block. Enjoy!

MGB V8 Roadster trip to the new forest 2013
A few days ago my dad and I took the MGB for its first proper run since it
was finished. We covered nearly 300 miles, averaged 22mpg and the temp
stayed rock solid between 170-180! Our baby is now 100% reliable and we're
looking forward to more outings.
Please comment and let us know that you think.
Robert's V8 MGB startup
"79 MG-B with a base 3.9L Rover V8 out of a Land Rover Discovery. Using
ford cologne v6 pistons, rover 3.5 rods, and a Buick 300 crank the
displacement now resides that 4,995cc. The heads are from a 4.0(same as a
4.6 and the 'best' stock heads) - and my father and myself spent about
40hours porting and polishing them(aftermarket heads are out of my budget
at about $3500). Compression is 10.5:1, a mild crower cam(power from
1300-5500), 14CUX fuel injection + chipped for the displacement increase,
equal length headers, dual 2.25" all the way back, blueprinted/balanced,
lightened flywheel, and the engine was lowered/moved back 2" for a better
center of mass. It has a Mustang t5 transmission w/ adapter
plate and its running a hybrid mg/ford 8" rear(MG axle tubes, Ford
differential, and ford truck axles re-splined to accept MG hubs) with
3.55:1 gears. Star spec 205's all the way around..."

MGB Roadster for sale from Left Coast Classics in Sonoma California.
Solid 1968 MGB Roadster for sale, just one owner until a year ago. Owned
from new by a couple in the Bay area until purchased by my client earlier
this year. The original owner worked at an MG dealership. It was his
wife's car and only used for local drives in their home town. Incredibly
original and unaltered, right down to the emissions equipment on the
engine. Lovingly cared for. The only modifications are period speakers
installed in the rear bulkhead and an electric cooling fan added to the
radiator. Drives with a tightness and originality that you don't find on
restored cars. Has had one repaint of it's original primrose on a razor
straight, absolute rust-free body. The wheels still bear the factory paint
and car has a vintage Amco convertible top. Frame bag is included. Nice
chrome, trim, glass and even the original leather in beautiful condition.
Also includes both original issue black license plates. The car starts;
runs and drives beautifully with smooth shifting, tight suspension,
excellent brakes and clean running quiet motor with plenty of oil pressure.
Truly amazing to find such an original gem.
