MG MGA - engine rocks
The engine in my 56 1500 starts to rock a lower RPMs. It is really bad at around 900 to 1000 rpms and smooths out at about 1250. Aside form this, it runs very smooth and strong all the way to red line. Driving is no problem just when I stop a a traffic light. The problem just started last month.
|Check your engine mounts - I had to replace mine a couple of years ago - the metal bracket had actually sheared and nearly shook the car to bits - but it could be just the rubber in yours.|
I had an engine mount where the rubber actually separated from the metal plate. You couldn't really see it was failed until you lifted the motor a little.
