MOT time again...

So, it needs a new brake pipe.... kinda good result really, it had a clean pass last year, so 12 months on and that is all it needs.

ive no time to do it myself, though it would be cheaper if i did... so i pick it back up next monday..

it goes 16 years old this year... who ever believed that mgf`s were not good cars and would not last a long time.. its likely the pipe being replaced is original, since ive had several done now in the last few years... and that gives one the idea, that the pipes are probably good for ten years plus... depending on where on the car they sit.

it will be a happy monday next week.. all i want now is the weather to improve so i can get the under chassis made good for next winter... that too is original, untouched except for rust prevention..

Now that's impressive, pays to look after your motor.

Out of interest, which pipe did it fail on Incony? I'm guessing one of the rears to the 'T' on the bulkhead?

I got an advisory on one on my rears last Summer. I did initially rub it down and put some grease over it, but I had some spare time over Christmas so knocked up a new one. Unbelievably both pipe connectors unscrewed no bother.

As you say, that is a very good result though - congrats!
