MG Magnette ZA (1950s)

Anyone know of a runner for sale? Or an unfinished restoration project...they tend to rust.

I'm looking for a restored runner, or solid basis for a project.

Update on the BMW K1200 engine implant kit?

I'd like to know if I can order one of the kits for joining the K1200 BMW to the Imp box.

What's the cost and how long's the list? Anything else I'd need to know?
I'm moving to my new base soon and doing this with the Mk 7 is getting closer to the top of the priority list.

Thanks in advance.....

Re: 30 Years of Davrians

https://www.davrian.net/forum/download/file.php?id=637&t=1 Usual Davrian waving paw at onlookers attention-seeking behaviour! :lol: Has anyone ever tried fitting decent adjustable double wishbone front suspension with an anti-roll bar? It'd probably go round corners even quicker....something like t...

Re: Derelict Mk3 Found

If you have the reg number, Davrian register should have the build number....if not, with the reg number you may be able to get DVLA to copy old log book info....both assuming it was ever road registered! If not, it may have been built for competition, and never had a build plate fitted. My Mk 4 had...

Re: Spare £29k?

yeah, well, they are not making 'em anymore so it's hardly surprising a proper competition built car is going to start to be worth more. Look at decent minis, Sprites, Midgets and comp MGBs. Davrians are rocking-horse do-dos in comparison, and will run rings around similar cars in class and out of i...

Re: Engine mount ala Porsche

Very impressive I must say! However, if as you say you had to buy two Carreras just for some bits, can I have the leftovers please? :mrgreen: Sorry nopt to have been keeping up on the build, but what have you done to the engine, is it now fuel injected? Which system? Looks like you've been mighty bu...

Re: WFD 577H

Kind of the PO to leave you the key, eh?

I once found a correspondence by letter chronicling the entire history of an extra-marital romance, under the carpet of a Bond Equipe which passed through my hands!

Re: MEY 882J

Fantastic! Congrats. So all things considered, the BMW power is an improvement? :lol: Mine is still waiting for events to roll round to it... I've been occupied with restoring a small ex watermill which I shall be living in...the garage space is only half or less of what I have here, so I'm also try...

Re: MEY 882J

This is probably what I should be doing with the Mk 7! After all, one can always upgrade to an 1100 or 1200 later.
