  1. Nice and solid Austin engineering. We owned two A110 Westminsters in the 70s … lovely cars, and quite economical, especially the 3-speed overdrive version.

  2. That graphite bearing was designed to self adjust the clutch by wearing down as the disc wears.
    Never sit at a stoplight with your foot on the clutch in any car, but especially these.

  3. As l always say , the cheapest part of a car is buying it! The parts are well priced to fair. Haven’t seen one of these stripped for many years . Thanks

  4. We need some more engine rebuild timelapses! I’ve got a Poly 277 v8 out of a 56 Plymouth you guy’s can rod out ๐Ÿ˜… I’m gonna need it back though ๐Ÿ˜

  5. nice informative video, I have done that bit twice on my 73 midget, watch out with the new clutch pressure plate. the 2 that I had to replace had the little metal plate come loose from the clutch spring fingers if that happens it will ruin the clutch fork with that part hanging loose on input shaft, i did the very same upgrade with roller bearing and clutch fork but the second clutch failed in the same manner, one clutch was aftermarket and the second time it was a borg and beck, the plate on the clutch is only pressed together and if it is not assembled correctly it will come loose and ruin the work that you did, just check it carefully that the little bearing plate on the clutch fingers is properly secured… sucks to have to do that job more than once, good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Hi i watched a few of your vidios loved the one of england barn findes i have a 84 mg metro turbo covered 28k hiden away not been on the road since the 90’s let me know if its of any interest to you

  7. Having had a Midget before myself your video speaks volumes about British auto union troubles and the subsequent decline in British car quality.

  8. Yeah it’s a lot of cleaning plus also might as well make sure to stop leak’s if you can ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ and new hose’s? For the radiator?
