    Hi, finally the mgtf my friend asked for help with is ready to roll. However, It has started and run over the last few days without a problem. So On its maiden test drive this evening it seemed a bit reluctant to start but the fourth turn chugged into action. Alls well we pulled off turned lights on and drove about 1/4 of a mile when without any indication all the lights went out and the engine stopped same time. When you turn on the ignition nothing at all. we pushed it back to a safe spot and after 5 or 10 mins turned the key and it started again. Driving it back the short distance it seemed to behave as it should.

    So the subframe and engine have been removed and as far as I could see all connections are in place and the earth strap at the back by the large fuse 80Amp I think.
    Any ideas I sort of feel I'm helping out for the long haul on this project and auto electrics really isn't my bag.

  • Hi, I did have a look on rimmers that's where I nicked the diagram from shhh. That's where the confusion, well in my head anyway begins. The diagram for the coolant hose shows front radiator pipes and rear engine side coolant pipes and so the pipe labeled 38 in the drawing connects to the underfloor pipe and on the other end coolant pipe No 34 to the radiator. So on the left side of car viewing from the rear. However,  I then find a diagram


    Which I assume gives the impression it's connected to the righthand side of the car.

    its a 2003 mgtf with pipes as per both the diagrams included.

    I am helping a mate get a project mgtf 2003 back on the road. I've helped him fit a new clutch and sort out the subframe. What I'm struggling with is fitting the rubber coolant hoes to the engine, or rather what pipe goes where. I'm looking at hose numbers 38 and 39. if I take 38 the large z shaped one. Standing at the rear of the car looking forwards does it connect to the right or left stainless underfloor pipe and the other end to the metal coolant rail on the engine? If I get one sorted I'm sure the other is obvious.
    we had a box of hoses and clips but no idea where they go.
