    Ransomes mg2 problems

    I am at the Dene Rally ( SO24 0HA ) with my MG2 this weekend. If it is not too far from you in Wiltshire I would be happy to show you how to start an MG2 (which probably means that I have put the mockers on it starting). The Dene Rally is a good event with tractors, steam, vintage cars and motorbikes and much more.

    Ransomes mg2 problems

    To turn the engine over you need to engage the clutch by pulling out one of the spring loaded plungers on the back of the clutch. I recommend that you get a manual for the MG2, they have much info about the engine and transmission, copies are readily available on that well known auction site. I find that my MG2 will not fire if the throttle is open beyond a fraction when starting.

    Eskdale Show Cumbria

    Regarding the 2018 show I suggest you ask Norm to drive the skimmer there, if he leaves now he might just make it in time!
