Do you know where I can get some hands on training, as I have:
   1966 MGB,
   1969 MGC-GT
   1979 MGB
The only one that runs is the '79 MGB, any advice would be appreciated.

Buy the Bentley reprint of the factory workshop manual and read it.  Iíve always found that reading technical out loud slows you down and causes you to stop when you hit a word or concept that you donít understand.  When reading silently, as normal, itís easy to gloss over those words and concepts.

Haynes prints a nice manual that is much the same as the factory workshop manual but tells you how to do the job with pictures and normal workshop tools.

You can spend a long weekend and watch YouTube videos Ė I have several which you can find under "universitymotorsltd" and there are many other good ones, too.

If you have a British car club in your area, join it.

When you come upon something you donít understand, you can always call me Ė Iíll do my best to help you out.

Try doing the simple easy things first.  Do them completely and do them right so you donít have to go back and fiddle with something a second time.

Hope this little bit helps.
