AMGBA Meet 2012 and Brits on the Beach in Ocean Grove, New Jersey

AMGBA Meet 2012 and Brits on the Beach 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: AMGBA at 773-878-5055, meet@mgclub.org , www.mgclub.org 

American MGB Association’s 35th Annual Meet - AMGBA MEET 2012 - for the MGB, MGB-GT & Midget - Ocean Grove, New Jersey - September 15, 2012.

MG sports car production as we know it was discontinued in 1980 with the closing of the famed Abingdon-On-Thames works in the United Kingdom. But these modern day classics are being preserved forever here in North America by members of the American MGB Association. Headquartered in Chicago, the AMGBA serves enthusiastic MGB, MGB-GT, and MG Midget owners throughout the USA, Canada and throughout the world. Each year, the AMGBA holds its National Meet.

The 1978 initial gathering was held in Chicago. In 1979 and 1980 the AMGBA National Conventions were held in New York state, in Ithaca and Glens Falls. The organization’s success led to renting the world famous Indianapolis 500 Motor Speedway in 1981 for the AMGBA National Convention. In 1982, the AMGBA held its National Convention outside the USA in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. In the years 1983 and 1984, the AMGBA went west for the first time in Lake Tahoe, California and Boulder, Colorado. In 1985, the AMGBA held two conventions in Santa Barbara, California and Abingdon, Illinois. In 1986, we visited Texas during its 150 year anniversary in San Antonio, Texas and in 1987 we visited the Saratoga Springs area of beautiful upstate New York. In 1988, the convention site was Kansas City, Missouri. In 1989, we visited the Great Northwest part of our country in Springfield, Oregon.

In 1990 the convention was held in Atlanta, Georgia which was a first for that area of the country. In 1991 we returned to the site of our first convention in Chicago and in 1992, we returned to the West Coast to the beautiful San Francisco Bay area in Palo Alto, California. In 1993, we traveled to New England at Keene, New Hampshire near the site of the Westminster MG Museum. In 1994, we went for the first time to the San Diego, California area at the Del Mar race track. In 1995 we went to Memphis, Tennessee, home of the blues and Elvis Presley. In 1996 we joined with all of the major MG clubs in North America for MG Indy '96 in Indianapolis, Indiana at the Indy 500 track. In 1997 we were on the West Coast in the San Francisco area at Palo Alto, California. In 1998, we were in Charlotte, North Carolina at the Lake Campus of Davidson College. In 1999, we went to Los Angeles, California.

In 2000, we went to Armagh, Pennsylvania and joined with the TRF Summer Party and in 2001 we were in Houston, Texas for the Houston MG Club's All British Motor Vehicle Exposition. In 2002 we again went to the San Francisco, California area for the Palo Alto British Car Meet. For 2003 we visited Florida and the Space Coast in Titusville, Florida. In 2004, we visited picturesque Cape Cod in Massachusetts for the Cape Cod British Car Club's British Legends Weekend. In 2005, we were in San Diego, California at Fairbrook Farms in Bonsall for San Diego British Car Day. We were in Maryland in 2006 at the MGs on the Rocks Show and in 2007 we went to Charlotte, North Carolina at the MGs on the Green Show. In 2008 we were in Armagh, Pennsylvania with The Roadster Factory Summer Party and for 2009 we planned for a show in the Central Valley of California.

In 2010 we went to Sussex, Wisconsin for the British Car Field Day. For 2011 we were in Ohio for the first time at Dayton in conjunction with the 27th Annual British Car Day at Eastwood Metropark.

And for 2012, we are going to the Jersey Shore in conjunction with the 15th Annual Brits on the Beach 2012 Show in Ocean Grove, New Jersey.

It promises to be a great time and a memorable experience for all that attend. For more information contact the above, write to the American MGB Association, P.O. Box 11401, Chicago, IL 60611, call 773-878-5055, email us at meet@mgclub.org  or explore our web site at www.mgclub.org .

MGB: the First 50 years of Immortality
by Peter Egan, from Road & Track

While driving to the bookstore last night and discussing how to best celebrate my upcoming 64th birthday, Barb suddenly turned to me and said, "isn't there a Beatles song called When I'm Sixty-Four?"

Time does slip away, as I was reminded for a second time that night when we walked into the bookstore. I headed over to the magazine rack and immediately noticed a British car magazine with a cover blurb that said, "The MGB Turns 50!" Naturally, I had to buy a copy to add to my fairly sizable bookshelf of MGB lore - which includes several grease-stained shop manuals.

I've owned three of these cars, you see, and spent a couple of years in the early '90s doing a full restoration on a 1973 roadster in British Racing Green with a tan interior. I bought this car from Patti Baron, wife of R&T Design Director Richard M. Baron, just before Barb and I moved back to Wisconsin in 1990.

I drove this car, trouble-free, for about two years before I foolishly sold it to buy an 18 foot trailer for my Reynard Formula Continental. The sad truth is, I'd owned two other MGBs before this one - 1970 and 1971 models - and sold them both to defray the cost of racing.

Thought the MGB came out in 1962, I didn't actually get a ride in one until 1968. I had a summer factory job and met a fellow worker named Pete Shannon who had an MGB. He gave me a short ride in the car, and I was quite impressed. Ride quality in the MGB was good, too and it seemed to handle well, as it sat lower than the MGA.

The MG was a model I grew to respect for being well built and well engineered. Which is not to say the car didn't have a few problem areas.

But whenever someone asks me what classic sports car, I would choose as a retirement project and a "keeper" that remains permanently satisfying to drive and maintain, the two cars that always come to mind are the MGB and the Lotus Seven - though the Lotus would be less practical as a road car, and more expensive.

There were so many MGBs built - more than a million between 1962 and 1980 - that most of them remain in the $4,000 to $12,000 price range depending on condition. They are, as my fellow serial MG-restoring buddy John Jaeger remarked "A noble car that wasn't built just for the nobility. Almost anyone can afford one."

There's a huge aftermarket parts industry for these cars, and nothing - other than a little machine shop work on the engine - that can't be done by a reasonably skilled home mechanic with a tool kit. Outside help or expertise is seldom needed; you can fix these things forever, by yourself, in your own garage.

And so can the next owner in case you end up wearing a cardigan sweater and pulling up weeds for a hobby. We are frail, but the MGB just may be immortal.

Wire Wheel Conversion

Q: I am planning on updating to wire wheels on my '72 roadster. I have read up on some tips and was wondering if you had any tips. Is it a good idea to replace 6 leaf with 7 leaf assembly? I have been told they will fit and give it a stiffer ride. I will be changing the rear differential for spline drive so it seems time to replace the original components with new ones.

Should the front wheels be on car ramps? I also intend to support the car with jack stands in front of the front spring eye mounting points. Will the car rock when I use a floor jack to take the tension off the rear axle? This will make unbolting it easier. I understand soaking everything overnight with liquid wrench will help. This a big job and hate to make any headaches. I plan to use the harder urethane bushing kit. Any tips for the job would be really appreciated. Thanks for the great work.

Bob Tresch

 

A: I did this conversion on my '73 B some years ago. I used a '74 donor car as the body was badly damage. I took the rear axle and front suspension for my car and much of the rest found new homes in other's cars as well. I love the look of the chrome wires, but do miss the ease of maintenance of the discs as I use mine as a driver.

Before I address your points as presented, some notes you should have:

- The rear axle of the wire wheel B is about 1 1/2" narrower than that of the disc-wheel axle. Unless you are changing the entire axle (or using the splines from the specially designed conversion kit), just adding splines to your axle will cause the tires to hit the bodywork.

- The narrower axle requires a different handbrake cable. Don't try to salvage or adapt your existing cable as it will not fit or work correctly and will likely be damaged in removal anyway. Just change it outright.

- Be prepared to refit the front and rear brakes. That includes all shoes, pads, flexible hoses and wheel cylinders and rebuild the calipers.

- In changing the front hubs, make sure you have a shim kit available, new bearings and grease. Having shims in various sizes is important as not all the hubs are machined the same and these bearings are not preloaded, as in more modern designs. Too tight, they bind, too loose and they float. To your points:

I would support the car on (4) solid jack stands. The front either under the cross member or the spring pans (if you intend to remove the spindles). The rears, as you said, should be supported just in front of the forward spring mount, though check the condition of the floor pan there to make sure the top does not go through and also to leave room for access to the front spring mounting bolts. I tend to use stands with round tops (better to have "U" shaped tops for supporting axles, but those can do damage to sheet metal) and put plywood both on top of the stands at the back and under all 4 on the floor. The wood at the front of the spring mounts distributes the load some, putting less of a strain on any point of the sheet metal. If your garage floor is blacktop or smooth concrete, the wood bases tends to both protect the flooring from damage and keep the stands a bit more stable. They should be a bit larger than the base of your stands. Do not rely on floor jacks, scissor or bottle jacks as they are not stable enough if you get to banging around the stuck pieces.

The 7-Leaf springs would be a good idea, but they are heavier than the already weighty original ones. Consider instead the "rally tuned" 6-leaf springs or new parabolic designs which are only 1 or 2 leaves, much lighter and perform as well.

Panhard rods or other anti-sway devices are a very good idea. Later B's had them standard and those can be sourced used or new from the catalogs. I have the urethane bushings in my car and swear by them. Besides the improvements in handling, the longevity is so much better than the rubber, as well they are not subject to deterioration by oil from the car or road.

Using a die grinder or other circular cutter is easier to control and get into tight places. If you have a compressor, air driven tools are better, as electric cutters tend to either runaway or whip if they bind, where air cutters just stop and by pass the air. I did not really need one as I found, after soaking the bolts and shackles with penetrating oil, most everything came apart, if not cleanly (some bolts were not reusable), at least completely. One thing that did play in, not on my car, but on another fellow's car I helped with, was the "U"bolts that hold the axles to the rear springs broke-off at the nuts, even with using oil and heat. We were able to find replacements at the local NAPA store, though those required drilling the holes in the metal pads/shock mounts under the spring slightly larger. They are available from the catalogs, so if yours look bad, you might want to plan their replacement before you start. If you plan on going to the salvage yard for the axle, make sure you check a few things on the axle you plan to purchase:

- The splines are rugged, but subject to wear. Too much and they could be dangerous. Might be good to replace them anyway, but make sure you have the wear guide (found in the Haynes or other manuals, which you might find in the library).

- There are (2) fiber thrust bearings in the differential that cushion the spider gears (referred as "differential wheels" in the VB catalog) to each side of the axle. These tend to wear, crack and drop out of place. The result is that annoying 'click' on acceleration/deceleration. The replacement (now bronze or copper) are cheap, but it means taking the diff apart to fix. Rotate the axle shafts back and forth to see if you hear that click, if just to what you are in for with the new axle.

- The area where the U-bolts go over the axle tube tends to corrode. Too much corrosion and the tube could be porous or weak.

- The bolt that supports the rebound strip (top of he axle) is on some variations welded in place. These, too are subject to corrosion at the sheet metal support, so could be weak, cracked or missing entirely. Repair involves welding a new one in place.

- Make sure the back cover is in decent shape (or the one from your old axle is). The hand brake has a bracket there that is often missing to damaged. You need the pivot to be secure and in place for it to work if you intend to have the parking brake active.

Be sure to check the axle if you are getting a different one. The splines are rugged, but subject to wear. Too much and they could be dangerous. Might be good to replace them anyway, but make sure you have the wear guide (found in the Haynes or other manuals, which you might find in the library).
