After removing the column covers, (screws in holes underneath) The 2 unslotted studs holding the ignition and steering lock assembly onto the column are anti-theft screws. They will turn by hitting them on the edges with a hammer and small sharp chisel - counter clockwise.

Diagram of distributer to coil for a 1955 nash

Wire from the ignition points goes to the negative side of the coil. It may be marked #1 on the coil. Power goes to the + side of the coil which might be marked # 15. Should be the only wire from the distributor to the coil. Real good modification for your Metro is replace the transmission with a fully syncro unit out of a 68 or newer MGB. You can also replace the engine with a 68 or newer MGB 5 main bearing engine and keep the positive ground electrical. The engine are identical on the outside but much better power and reliability. It will look all original but drive like a dream. I want a Metro convertible at some point in my life. I love those cars.

Mgb problems

The only way the engine would keep running smoothly (not engine pre-ignition running) is that the coil is still getting power. If you look at the coil you will see the supply side of the coil comes from the start switch. There is where you should "start" checking. I recommend you also check the start relay for sticking. Something in the starting circuit is not cutting off the voltage to the coil...allowing power to the distributor points.

My 74 MGB turn signals and break lights do not work. Fuse is good, bulbs are good. Gauges work, hazards work, parking lights work. Any suggestions?

I don't have repair info on a model that old, but the normal procedure is to follow the circuit from the brake light switch thru the turn signal switch and find out where you are loosing power.
Do the fuses have power ?

I have a 74 MGB. All the running lights are working, except the drivers rear. The side running light, tail light, and licence plate light are all on the same circuit. If I unplug them all I get power, but...

You have a high resistance there, it is very common on all BMC products of that era, usualy a dirty contact on the switch, it is the red wire on the light switch, try pulling it off and also pull one of the big blue ones and push the red on to where the blue one was, see if this gives tail lights when the main or dip is selected (tone wont work as you disconnected it!) if so then the switch is faulty.

JVC KS F90 Radio cassette loses all settings when switched off

Your radio probably needs a constant live to retain the radio settings. It may be that your radio has 2 live wires. 1 live that operates the radio coming from the ignition and 1 coming from a constant live that just gives enough power to retain the memory settings.

If you are going long periods of not using the MGB I would disconnect the battery to stop the it draining. If your battery goes completely flat it will damage the battery

Ignition switch for a 74 vw super beetle

The plastic ignition switch is held in with a philips screw. You will need to remove the ignition lock cylinder to get to it. A easy way to check is to unplug the wires going into the back of the lock housing and plug in the new switch, without removing anything.
