That MGC had a four speed transmission and a overdrive. Never had any trouble with the transmission or clutch.

You could split the gears on the transmission using the overdrive.

I suppose it would have been a better car to have kept it put away in the barn and just get it out on pretty, casual, days?

I worked on a lot of MGA's back in the early 60's. They were bad about blowing head gaskets. The "B" engine had another bolt in that position and didn't blow head gaskets. I never worked on a TC or TD.

The Austin sedan had the same engine but only a single carb. My wife had a Austin Sedan before we got married. It looked a lot like a "B"

The MGC engine was a off shoot of the Austin Healey 3000 with a different head design and carbs.

Never worked on any TR3's or 6's nor Midgets, Sprites, etc.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .
