MG MGA - Aussie LE-Jog ers, payback time!

To Garry Lock, Dave Godwin and Russell Anderson, and any others who may have been slightly "put-out" by my tendency to overtake everything in front of me.
(Well, I must admit that I do like to see a clear road in front of me. 😊)

The picture below of my throttle cable maybe proves that you are correct.

Maybe I do have a slightly heavy right foot!

I seem to remember I thought your vast list of spare lacked one thing and that was a throttle cable.

I see we will see you at the Raven Hall this weekend.

Anyone else going on this weekend's MGCC MGA Register event?

Hardly worth carrying a spare. It's only a bicycle brake inner cable! Plenty of bike shops throughout Europe. I trust you did not spend a silly price at an MG shop? I got mine on my local high street.

I have now got a spare throttle cable now Paul, in fact I have just bought a new one to replenish the spares kit.
Amazingly,the old cable was working fine but I just happened to check it during some recent engine work.

It is an ebay cable Steve, only a couple of pounds but, although I could still drive the car with a broken cable by increasing the tickover speed, it wouldnt be ideal and it only takes a few minutes to fit a throttle cable.

See you at the weekend Paul.

Good one Colyn.
