MG MGB Technical - 1500cc MG Midget

Was the 1976 MG midget available with a 1500cc engine? The present owner says it is the same engine used in the Spitfire and is not a conversion. I thought the later Midgets were only available with the 1275cc.

Lee. The 1500 engine, from the Spitfire, was introduced in 1975. But, it is not as good an engine as the earlier BMC A series engine for a number of reasons. A post on the Sprite-Midget BBS should give you additional information as well as what people have done to improve the 1500 engine. When properly modified, it seems to do quite well--but, it must be modified.
