Dougal For Sale (modified mk2)

Post  Martin & Nettie on Mon Sep 28, 2015 10:14 pm

Following discussions with Nettie over the weekend it is with a heavy heart we have decided to sell Dougal.

Dougal is a modified mk2 with metro front subframe & running gear with standard mini trailing arms and rubber cones.

Engine - 1275 A+ MG
MOT expires May 2016
2 new front tyres 165/55/R13
New non ballast electronic distributor, leads & plugs
New taper rear wheel bearings
New rear brake shoes
New nearside rear brake cylinder
New rear shock absorbers
New rear suspension knuckles
New handbrake lever rubber gaiters
New LED front sidelights & repeaters
K&N filter

Front hydrogas suspension units pumped up to 400 psi (new hand pump will be included).

On the downside the engine smokes a bit on startup, needs looking into but don't have the facilities.

Asking for 1500 to go to a good home.

Before we put Dougal on eBay I was just wondering if anyone can recommend anyone who could refurbish his MG 1275 engine?

In the end could'nt bring myself to put Dougal on fleaby so when the temperature got a couple of degrees above freezing I whipped his head off, decoked it and refitted it with a new copper head gasket, recommended for an mg engine. Also fitted RC40 back box, the single front only box was to damm noisy.

Also removed the substantial sump guard to enable an oil change, will be supplied loose or refitted if buyer desires, used engine flush as no idea what last oil change, also fitted new battery.

So Dougal's ready to go to Stoneleigh next weekend, MOT expires 21st May and new tax rules means you have get it taxed 76 I think for 6 months.

So even with new exhaust and new battery still asking for 1500, PM if interested, will also repeat this on our Facebook page.

Does not look likely we will be attending this year, we are attending a special 90th birthday on the Sunday, not her majesty but Nettie's mum.
