MGA Twin Cam, Old English white. I have all the notes, receipts, pictures and other documentation from the restoration. This car is beautiful ; this car is a gem.

The engine had a miss at low speed that evened out at driving speeds after warm-up, that is now corrected. While correcting that, I touched up the SU Carbs a bit, gapped and installed new spark plugs, verified that each is firing, done a compression check the results of which are 190,190,190,190 warm, and checked out the fuel flow, all of which are fine. The oil pressure is 55 - 60 while driving (higher when cold) and around 30 while idling. The car runs cool at 160 degrees. I have posted a somewhat blurry picture of the Temperature/Pressure gauge that I took while driving the car a few days ago.

I want to remind any potential buyer that all MGs of this era are positive-ground. This means that the positive battery wire is connected to the chassis and the negative to the starter switch. Installing a radio can be a challenge. Hooking it up backwards or having someone jump-start the car without understanding this can be a disaster.
