Today I was in Essen - techno classica,
but there was only 4 MG t types there,
even a few stalls where you could buy spare parts,
extremely many very high priced cars
I actually wanted to buy an overflow line for the carburettor, unfortunately not possible .
Home again, really cold, 3 ° , then I changed the break pipe/hose in the front ,
the screws were really tight, for the first time was 1 hour not so bad,
now the car is safe again for the next ride.

so today
i take off the cover from the carburettor,
it seems to have a hole for the ticker
but it is closed inside, no hole as it seemd to be
no ticker in the future
also one idea for the 2 score what shoudn t be on the cover
so i can t make an overflow as it is now....

next step was the fuel line
horrible fuel hoses
now a new fuel copper line

and it is tight :P

between the carburettors i will make it new at the weekend
also copper line

here a picture from this evening

so today i got my brass
so i could use my lathe the second time,
have had a look to the instruction so i can tunr all parts of the lathe, don t know how to explain it
i wanted to make a rejuvenate part for the knob

and not bad the first difficult part for a lathe beginner.

i have a thread on the backside so i can assemble it really easy

in some month i will engrave it with my stepcraft 420

other parts for the new overflow ist still on shipping

the ignition light is in the position of the fuel reserve knob, so i have to look what i can do,
not a new hole in the dashboard
i should be nearly original in the future
