This MG Midget is in for some extensive upgrades. The engine is out for a refresh along with a hotter cam and some head work. Along with some other preparation work the gearbox is being rebuilt with one of our Quaife dog engagement gear sets and an LSD will be installed in the axle. This tidy example is built around a very good body shell and with the new improvements should prove to be very competitive.
After finding the engine bay covered in coolant after his last race Simon Polley thought he best get the engine looked at. With an initial fear of a head gasket issue Simon was pleased to hear that issue was a leak from the water pump and housing. A new pump and some gaskets and all is dry. Simon is racing his Midget 1500 in the CSCC Swinging Sixties race series.
“Just wanted to thank you and let you know that my Midget ran beautifully at Brands this week end. On the pace and no leaks! I won my class though have to say that this was ‘last man standing’ due to others crashing out and breaking down but as they say ‘to finish first, first you have to finish’ and given my recent engine problems I think I deserve an award!”
