1969 MG B V8

Substance found in the cooling system

Our 1969 MGB V8 is in today to be MOT’d. This was due to take place in the afternoon which gave us the morning to get a few extra jobs done to the car.

Our first job of the day was to fit the new cooling fan to the radiator, once this was in place we wired it up before refitting the bumper and grille.

A 12v socket was to be fitted to the passenger footwell too.

 

Unfortunately during our work we discovered a substance within the cooling system which needed to be immediately addressed. We are currently working on the issue to prevent it from happening again.

First job of the day was to checked it over, a fuel leak has been reported but after a thorough assessment not leak has been discovered as yet. We’ll keep our eye on this over the coming days so so far it looks promising.

The thermostat has been refitted and we have replaced the thermostat hose. The radiator has been removed and re-positioned as we have now fitted the new fan.
