Never heard of Wrench Monkey I have heard of Grease Monkey. Might be a regional thing....
Might be. GM was a general auto-mechanic in my neck of the woods. WM were gorillas with cars they built.

Re: The “Must haves” list

I’m sorry I think is the best response. The 1500 engine in the Midget was just bad news in general. That is the correct response. Engine #1 was tired when I acquired MadGe. I bought engine 2 to spec. Rebuilt engine one (original) to stock. Put #1 back in and spun bearings due to running NY viscosit...

Re: The “Must haves” list

Mine is a 74 badged as a 75. Worst of all worlds. On third engine and blew the gasket. Need to find someone here as I’m not allowed to work on here (stupid rules).

Re: The “Must haves” list

my MG came WITH the glove box flask and glasses.

I don't think "the brits are stoic" is true... I think they just don't give a fork.

Re: Cape Man's Dory

Re: The “Must haves” list

Can’t remember if it was fire crew in AK or someplace else that said they had camelback the worked under their respirator. I’m sure o low FG or one of the tw28 guys can justify the cost. But then again...
