I recall my cousin's MG Midget which might or might not be smaller than the MGF but frankly I seem to recall the same difficulties with that and I was 20 at the time

I have used neither since October, and should be back in business soon. I have looked in here from time to time to keepm up with things, and gope to be back in the print exchanges in January or Febuary.

Blimey Richard - that sounds like a really rough few months.

Glad you think you are through the worst of it and hope you will recover fully soon.

Good luck

Martin

ps - the MGF - the 1940s version or the 1990s one ?

IHi Martin,, It hs certainly not been an eqasy year, for and my Wife, , but the doctors assure us that as long as I take the tablet5s then all should be fine, and next year wil a lot better, and I am now discharged from it all, Thaks for the good wishes, and the F is the 90's one, in my case a 2001 version, made by Rover, oje of the last ofb the line of great British MG sports cars, and it has had everything done, head gasket,cam belt and water pump and stainless steel long water pipes, nt ojne of those things, I can't comfrtably and safelyuse it at the moment, so I have it in storage for the moment

Very sorry to hear about your troubles Richard. It does sound as if you're on the mend, so pace yourself and get your strength back in your own time. We're all keen to see you active here again, but not if it means putting any kind of strain on your recovery.
I hope you get enough mobility back to get the MGF on the road again. My TF needs a bit of love over the winter, but she's still the best fun car to drive I've ever had.
