  • MG Montego efi

    My son bought this last year and now have a little time to work on it. Long time off the road but not in bad condition, didn't pay a lot for the car so wasn't expecting too much. First thing is to get the car running as it hadn't been for many years. The car was overfuelling and causing vapour lock. The petrol tank return was blocked so I used my last spare tank and that we put on the car Saturday. Still not starting and no fuel getting through even after putting 3 gallons in. So today I rerouted the supply, a bodge but it works. Now have fuel coming in. Next thing after checking the timing as the car back fired, the cam was 4 teeth out, never seen that much before. As we were going to change the belt and water pump anyway, I removed them but as always a bolt snapped. Lucky me I managed to remove the broken stud, not often that happens

    This took a bit of finding but on its way. New original sunroof seal as the one on the car is knackered, cambelt purchased from my local supplier but ebay job for the waterpump

      Managed to locate two more seals so they're on the way aswell. All ready now to carry on working on this in the morning and hopefully getting it running. Will also be searching for any history on the car as it came only with an old logbook.

        Well that killed it, waterpump was damaged so having to send it back so no progress. On another note, logbook found but the yellow part was missing, checked on dvla website but no history of being scrapped, no MOT history and untaxed since 2006. My son has now applied for the logbook and will see what happens. Could be interesting as a new logbook was issued in 2017 and he only has the older one from 2006. We shall see how this pans out

            Log book arrived so not been scrapped so thats another thing done. Should be able to continue next month and hoping the 4 teeth out on the cambelt isn't a big deal, don't really want to remove the head if i can help it
