TA brake light switch

The switch mounted on the chassis is horizontal. The spring running to the pedal is angled downwards and there is not enough pull when applying the brakes to pull the flat peice of steel out far enough to actuate the brake lights. has any one had this problem?

MG TA Torque settings for replacing the head

Correct me if I am wrong but should the setting for the head studs be 35 and the rocker shaft 15?

Re: MPJG Fastener Size

There is quite a mixture of threads on the MPJG. For instance the fan is held on with four 2BA bolts.

MG TA Hood fitting

I am about to tackle fitting a new hood supplied by Don Trimming.
They supplied small black nails to tack the hood to the rear wooden rail.
Has anyone used another method to attach the hood to the rear of the car?

MG TA spare wheel

The spare wheel is loose on the carrier even when the spinner is done up tightly. Any suggestions as to how I can tighten it.

Hi Bill
Sorry for the delay in thanking you for your help. Copied the card onto heavy brown card and the car is now wired up. Looks very neat.

MG TA fuel tank to body packing position

Has anyone got a photo of where the rubber strips go between the rear of the body tub and the gas tank?
Is the rubber separating the bottom of the tank and the chassis the same thickness?

Re: Hello and problem with stub axles

Highly recommend Bob's front spindle inserts. My '37 axles were both cracked when tested. Local machinist did a good job fitting them and NTG supplies the MGA castle nuts. If you have a copy of "TC's Forever" see what can happen if the axle breaks. Can be fatal!!

MG TA Battery Earth

Is the Ta with an MPJG motor negative or positive earth? Have had varying opinions.
