N.East May News

Hi all. Well its time to get out the Polish and get your cars cleaned, by the time of reading this we should have completed our first event of the year, on the 28th April we have 8+ cars taking part in the MG Bobby Shafto run. more info on this next month.
We have a few events pencilled in for May, and in June we have some kind of event on every weekend,
Work on a few of our cars are now nearing completion, Kevan now has all his 3 cars running, a great achievement for Kevan. his Stags fuel pump was wired up incorrectly, once diagnosed and  sorted it was a five minute fix, and his TR's speedo is now working correctly after 3 Angle drives, the re-manufactured drives are utter rubbish quality .James has had to remove his engine again as he fitted it with the wrong oil pump, Mr Fish recons his Gentry will be back on the road soon, Andy Boyes has eventually got the new Carb spacers fitted to his Dolomite. it only took him 9 months, and Pauline hopes to get her Herald MOT'ed shortly after being stored for quite a while, judging by her photos that she was showing, it will need a good was and clean as well, so we should start to see a few different cars around soon.
My Replacement Gearbox has been a failure, the replacement one that was picked up for £90. has the some sort of problem with the overdrive as my old one, so I now have a spare that will get rebuilt over the summer ready for another Gearbox swap next winter, but by adding extra insulation over the gearbox tunnel, I now have a nice quiet car, all I can hear now is the exhaust note,  I have also upgraded the dashboard lighting by fitting LED bulbs, what a difference it has made I can now see the clocks & dials in the dark
I am apologising in advance for next months news as it may be very short or not at all, as I have a flight to catch the day after our next meeting at 6.40 in the morning, and I will not be back for the Chester Le Street Riverside show on the 12th May,  so any issues you will have to contact Deryck
Thats all for now
Geoff
