was seen at the Stoneleigh show?
Nic Houslip was at the MG-Triumph Show at Stoneleigh on Sunday 10th
February 2019 and has a report on a handy front suspension greasing
modification which can save running the car up on a ramp and using
the grease gun directly on the nipples on the king pins.
Nic also mentioned "Chase MG in Burntwood Staffs had a pair of
used, but apparently good condition, MGBGTV8 cast iron exhaust manifolds
on their stand for £495. They also had a "Pair of Trousers"
and main inlet manifold, carburettors and airbox, but no crab claws,
as the man on the stand said they sold immediately for a very large
Houslip reports on a "device I saw at the show yesterday
called Grease Monkey by Kevin of P1, Performance Hardware. Simply
it is a kit of parts enabling the grease nipples on the kingpin
assembly to be relocated, via small flexible tubes to a convenient
mounting point with easy access for the grease gun. I took a
pair of photos with my mobile phone which show the general arrangement.
The product is just released at the show and isnt completely
developed as far as the MGB fitment is made. I do think that
these would be a very useful addition on any MGB or derivative.
I will contact Kevin and see what more information I can find".
