    Good luck with your restoration. It's always a positive moment when the engine first fires up after a long period of hibernation.

      I can only begin to imagine how hard that was to find! Fingers crossed no other wires in the loom have suffered the same fate.
      It'll be worth the pain in the end when she's up and running once more.

        Thanks, found it by accident really ,was looking for a live to main relay .
        Then earthed out the terminal then fuel pumped primed stepper motor rattled.
        Then tried the ignition it just started. Panicked turned it back of straight away, primed engine oil etc, tried again, it just started.
        So can start the MG again but carnt move it "yet" .
        Got to release the back shoes from the drums. That's the next task any ideas gratefully received. Will get some pictures up at weekend.
        Thanks Alan.
