MG MGF Technical - Smokey Joe
|The 1500 engine on my 76 midget smokes quite a bit which is a sort of a bluey/grey colour . Most noticeable on start-up but can still see smoke when pulling away almost all the time. Compression is low on no2 and oil pressure guage reads between 45 and 65 on the road.|
Is this likely to be rings or valve gear and can I leave things as they are for now without doing any significant harm until I can afford to have the work done? Obviously my oil bill will eventually overtake my fuel bill......
|Might do better posting this on the Midget & Sprite BBS...|
We quite often get postings for Bs here as the items are next to each other on the drop down menu. This is the first Spridget posting I've seen here.
|Being F owners here, we'r most likely to suggest it's your head gasket.|
|Naw, just spliffin up in the mornins.|

taking it to a Rover dealer and demanding its fixed free of charge out of warranty as it's a known problem/design fault.
