  • Sithmaull created a new topic ' an ebayer to avoid (hopefully pics worked)' in the forum.

    Recently purchased a replacement mgf steering wheel from an ebayer called richard50uk I would highly reccomend that nobody else uses him for mg parts, he has many listed. The steering wheel on the picture was almost like brand new, didnt look worn, had been cleaned and looked almost new. very nice i thought, a good replacement for my very worn out one. Anywho, did the deal and paid the cash. It arrived today and was a totally different steering wheel. It was filthy dirty, badly worn away past the point of shiny to where the leather has come off and when i compared the steering wheel to the pic it was a different wheel altogether. my "new" one has two strips next to the horn buttons, the one in the pic didnt. Ive given the so called new one a wipe over but heres the pics. Am i wrong??

    The one i thought i was buying...

  • bryan young replied to the topic 'Cracked wheel!' in the forum.

    The early F wheels always leaked air, the corrosion on the inside area of the wheel (only primed) causes the air to leak out between the paint and metal. i have one rear that is dropping pressure from 28psi to 15psi in about a week. Plenty of Mpi wheels available here in the UK for good prices, but expensive to ship to you, I should imagine. :-?

    Pretty much any mirror on the market could be adapted to fit using this method (other methods exist im sure)

    Not saying this is the only or best way.. Just the way I did it..

    I wanted rid of the rubber sections outside around the mirror

    Yep, flame red, not solar as i thought it would be. So a bit stuck as what to do with the solar red boot lid currently taking up most of my other car.
    The Solar red paintcode is CMU

  • Sithmaull created a new topic ' For Sale - MGF boot lid flame red' in the forum.

    Hi,

    bought a replacement boot lid in Solar red only to find my car is flame red so its up for grabs. Good condition, no rust and a few small scratches, nothing major though. A bit of wear as to be expected. No boot lock mechanism as this has all been removed. £20 Mid devon, can package up if you want to organise a courier.

    These guys are good, and they have loads of wheels for around £12 each with only a tenner postage.

    Stick it in the for sale section. It'll be cheaper to buy a Flame Red boot lid than get it sprayed.

    At least the guage will give you a baseline. Then when you see changes from the norm you can investigate.
    When I had my supercharged MG Magnette the oil pressure guage saved my engine, ironically the braided hose to the guage failed on my way to a British Car Show, and the needle dropped like a stone. Unfortunately I was doing 80MPH on the freeway through Seattle Washington at the time. As I was going through a construction zone there was no place to stop and by the time I was able to get off the freeway I had lost 4.5 litres of oil, fortunately with no ill effects. The car stopped 100m from a foreign car repair shop and they were able to get me a replacement hose within 3 hours. I did make it to the event I was going to. :clap:

    The last time I had an oil ejection episode it was in the Nissan. The AA man and me couldn't figure out how it had escaped.
    But recovered it to my usual garage.
    It was my mechanic who pointed out the 50p size hole in the crankcase...Whoops. :slapme:

    As long as I've had the F there has been a very slow leak form the rear left tyre, I'd replaced the valve core, but that made no difference.
    I was just going the put up with keeping an eye on the tyre pressure until I got around to replacing the tyres.
    But over the last 2 weeks the leak has got worse.
    I went to reinflate the tyre today and noticed the wheel is cracked!
