MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Daniel Stapleton,MG Midget High Performance Manual

Hi everyone,

I'm desperate to find a copy of Daniel Stapleton's 'MG midget High Performance Manual' for a second rebuild of my midge.

Nowhere has any stock any more, and no copies are coming up online used anywhere that I've found.

If anyone's got a copy knocking about, I'll obviously pay you for it!

Equally if you have any idea where I could get a copy, I'd be really grateful.

I wonder if Daniel has any under the bed?

Find it on Amazon - some of the reviews made me laugh.

I've been looking myself with no joy but I have seen You can get it as an e book downloaded as a PDF from certain places.
Hope this helps and good luck
P. S let me know if you find any.
Dave Pratt

Daniel is on here and I bet he can supply you with one.
just wait until after Easter and he'll be on here again

Thanks for your thoughts everyone - I'd much rather a hard copy than a PDF, though I might have to resort to that eventually. Does anyone have Daniel's e-mail address?

I'll keep an ear to the ground and let you know if I hear anything.


And I'll check out amazon now :)

Hi Josh

What specific info are you looking for? General rebuild info or upgrading - if the latter for which system/parts? There may be other books to use as well as info on this site.

For example engine upgrading, Vizard's A Series tuning book -

Lindsay Porter on bodywork repair and other repairs (this one, not the more recent shorter Haynes one:
also cheap used ones on ebay)

Someone local may have a copy you could borrow?
