Title: Window Roll Down
Post by: 2022 on May 07, 2022, 10:47:24 AM
Quick question. Should the side windows on my '74 B-GT roll all the way down?

I installed the window regulator brackets available from Moss and it limits the downward

Travel of the regulator so 3-4 inches of window remain above the door top

This bracket is supposedly for both roadster and GT

And advice greatly appreciated

Thank you.

There has been discussions about the handbrake and how well that works, depending on the position of the levers placed properly or swapped left to right.  But I have not heard any reports that the rear brakes work better with the shoes fitted one way or the other.  I have a short YouTube video about the proper positioning of the shoes.

T types and MGAs with drums in front are a whole different matter.  If the shoes are fitted backwards, itís all but impossible to stop those earlier MGs.

Hope this helps!
SAFETY FAST!
