MG TD TF 1500 - Broken carburettor body
|Hi guys Just taken these off the shelf after 30 years with a view to rebuilding them. Plenty of youtube videos to giving me confidence to give it a go myself. First off though noticed that part of the carburettor body is broken. Is this a problem? Any other advice or anything anyone notices about the carburettors. Thanks
|The carb will most likely work just fine. Fitting an air filter will be another story. I'd source another. MGA uses the same carb.|
|Can't tell from the picture, but what is the carb to carb fule line made out of?? It looks link maybe neoprene?? (BAD) It should be a braided flexable line,,same question on the fuel line to the rear carb,,|
|Yes it looks like some sort of plastic. Stained and rock hard. Will need replacing thanks for the heads up Steve.|
|You could have the "ear" replaced by Tigging it with filler. Then drill a new hole. |
First find a piece of Aluminum whose OD is the size of the hole. Drill a small hole on center through.
Have this "tigged" in, then build the ear up. The hole will form a pilot to enlargeand it will be just where it should.
I did this fix on my generator front bracket.
A friend did the "tigging". I don't have Aluminum capability.
|Cheers Jim good idea will look into it further.|
