MG MGA - MGB Engine
|I've been offered a MGB engine at a very very reasonable price. I'm thinking I might have it and one day fit it to my 57 1500 MGA. Its just a thought at the moment and it would probably need to be rebuilt but this could be done over time. The engine is from a 72/3 DT prefix 18GG. Would it be a straight ish swap? would probably fit with a 5 speed T9 gearbox.|
|If my 1500 wasn't such a lucky find and such a strong performer (basket case car) I'd be doing the same thing. Barney's site is bound to have plenty of info on this.|
|I have an 18GG fitted into a Mk2 (ex) 1600 with a 5 speed HiGear conversion. I didn't fit it (previous owner did) but clearly that engine fits and any issues can obviously be overcome!|
