Did you replace BOTH flashers?

Near the hazard switch

Behind center section is a hazard flasher. Change with same type you replaced turn signal one with.

It's an MG... isn't that explanation enough?

I'd be happy it has power to run.

Ah Lucas electrics , prince of darkness ,

were 72,s still using positive grounds ?

On my car the hazards only work if the turn signal lever is up or down when the flasher switch is on.

Check your ground points.

72 has the hazard flasher next to the switch behind the console. Check for power on the non ignition switched feed. More likely a bad connection than a bad flasher.

Thank you all for the comments. I will delve into the console today to check for the hazard flasher and associated fuse.

The trailer is ready to go to West Virginia.....now if the car would cooperate! πŸ™‚ Well.....I do have turn signals on the car...working on hazards. Got a hazard flasher today...need to pull some of the console out..which is OK because I need to connect the speakers and put in a secondary charging outlet to run GPS, etc. . Yesterday the alternator decided to give up the ghost (or is that Lucas smoke)...my guess is the internal voltage regulator...it's in Champaign being rebuilt and should be back on Friday. It's always something.

Replaced hazard flasher with two different units...still no hazards. There is an online fuse for the hazards...any guess as to where it may be located?

That was the kind of s#it that happened on the '71, '72, '73, and '74 MGBs I owned that made me give up on them, and concentrate on Mk1 MGBs. Even early MGBs have enough issues of their own, but the electrical systems are a lot simpler and their switches more robust.

Lady: I say, officer, can you assist me. Where is the British Summit being held?
Officer: The British Summit is being held at GOF Central in Akron and the surrounding Summit County of Ohio, m'lady. You should arrive in plenty of time as it is scheduled for July 11-15. Arriving early will allow you to visit the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame and Museum nearby in Cleveland.

I joined the group a little while back having fallen in love with a B/GT a friend let me try on and drive (at 6'6", it really did quality as trying it on). I've been searching for a B I could build myself since.

Well, yesterday I became the owner of a B roadster; it's a project, but the metal is remarkably solid. I hope to be working on it seriously as of this summer.

What year is it Wil Birch? Looks just like my 77 B.

Congratulations!!! welcome to the family!!! I have two 1977's one of them I'm converting to a 69 chrome Bumper, the other I'm going to turn into a matching trailer! Good luck and enjoy! P.S. just get to know the wiring, after that, the car is soooo easy to keep running! Those little cast iron blocks have surprised me! Their pretty tuff!!!

I luv that BRG.

Bet it will get it

Let us know what it brings

1972 "Last year for chrome bumpers". Glad they have some MG "experts" there!

We should be promoting the value of our cars. If it's a good roadster it should get that price, it certainly would in the UK

Wow. That's my first MG and my third car in life outa the gate. I'm sure it's worth every penny, but that's a tall glass of water on the estimate. In the States anyway.

I just wonder what is with the "eye liner" on the car. Don't think I have seen that before.

All the "original documentation" and it's "believed to be" 19,177 original miles? Also, as stated earlier, NOT the last year for chrome bumpers. It's a nice car, but not a $15,000 to $20,000 car.

My '73 has chrome bumpers...

whats wrong with it fetching 15-20k? some serious hidden damage or lack of maintenance or something? Hard to tell anything looking at 3 pictures. Other than the black in the headlight buckets, i dont see anything offensive

What tha

Hum, originally from Continental Cars is Florissant (St. Louis) MO. It does have overdrive (well it says it does) and maybe the headlight buckets were somebody's idea to match the fish-mouth grille? Let's see what number the hammer comes down on.

It's no reserve so it's definitely going to sell.

Really looking forward to seeing the final hammer price 😊

Selling an Alpine right now... $15,000 starting bid. EDIT: and sold for $15,000

Sucker born every day, with A/C and O/D beautiful driver here sold for $ 8.550, perfect car, needing nothing.

The market is overheated across the board, but that said, MGB values are rising. These high prices are outliers now, but they won't always be.

I'm guessing it will go $8500-$9500

Anyone else see the 65 on eBay for $37.5k?

FYI, this car sold at Mecum on May 18th, 2010. It was rated at a 3+ condition car at that time. I'm a skeptic here on the mileage. 7 years ago someone bought it at Mecum with 19,132miles and it now has 19,177. 45 miles in 7 years? I'd be very worried about other operational issues for a car that has not been driven.

Well? Has it come up on the block yet?

Isn't that also the wrong combination of trim - black trim on the bumperettes and a '70-71 grille? Were the '72s like that? And what's up with the paint in the headlight wells? Ugh.

The MGB is scheduled for late this afternoon / early evening. ..I'll already be on the road home.

Looks emo with that mascara

What I worry is why the headlight openings are painted black ?? Rust Repairs??

Still a very nice car from pictures with what looks like all parts from 72 are there. That trim piece across the hood to finish the grille is a hard piece to find. My friend actually had a custom manufacturer machine one out of one piece of aluminum then polished . $$$

I just decided to join ... finished registering on the website about three minutes ago.

I am a paid member

On my list now! I am a member of British Iron in N.W Arkansas..

Just received the latest MG Driver in todays post.

Also benefits, potentially for your local club. If your club has 8 NAMGBR members within its ranks, the club can be an affiliate chapter/club of NAMGBR which produces the benefits outlined on the lower half of the Join-Renew Page namgbr.org/join-us/ Your club just needs to keep up the 8 members and provide NAMGBR information about your club at least once a year.

Got my Driver today!

2 years and counting.

Don't forget MADD

Paying member 1-403

I've been a paying member since 1998, been worth every penny. Thanks to all the Executive for all the hard work they put into NAMGBR. Also, thanks to Robert Rushing for another great issue of MG Driver.

I was a member for a few years when I first bought my B in the late 80s but lapsed. I should re-up.

New benefit with Hagerty Insurance is a 5% discount if you are a member at your renewal date. Could be over half a membership if you have two or more cars.

"Over 1600"? Let's aim for 1622!

Money well spent.

Just registered as a new member.

Also, consider coming to MG2017 in June (25-28). Your registration is discounted if you are a NAMGBR member...

Unfortunately this year isn't an option for me ... I'm busy paying for a trip to Prague for my daughter and myself, so I'm kinda tapped out on the travel budget for now.

The magazine alone is worth the money.

Already a member --- great organization! Note that the Hagerty discount is not available in Canada.

I am... 1-375

Been a paying member for a number of years and happy to continue my membership. Also been on the cover of MG Driver twice. Nice.

Bought a B last weekend. Just joined the group and the register.

Even though I am currently MGB-less, I just recently joined; so far NAMGBR seems like a fine organization πŸ˜‰

Comment on Facebook

I'm guessing it is 1962. My understanding is that they only offered "Alamo Beige" one year, and did they not only offer the Mk II just that one year?

1962, for certain. Iris Blue, Black, and Old English White were 1962 B colors, along with Tartan Red and Chelsea Grey (lighter than Dove Grey).

This surely isn't any one particular "Year" because reference is made to models from different periods - 1500, 1600 and so forth

1962 or later. It's a sheet for Paint codes in a paint code manual. It could have been made any time after 1961 but not before!

See how the weight is shifted forward over the front wheels? The car becomes front end heavy.

One letter. ..

I weighed my 1968 MGC tourer with factory hardtop, about 3 gallons of fuel in the tank, only stock items in boot, and no driver.....

Hey Rick, will those early taillights fit a 77 ?

Bigger engine radiator moved to accommodate motor and list goes on and on. I've never driven one but been in one and I think the C is very underrated as far as linear power and handling goes ,even the auto critics at the time didn't have a kind word for it.

Loved my 68 C. The only car I ever regretted selling.

Rick Benhase

There is a 69 C on BAT auction site up to $11,000. So far!

If this graphic is accurate, it means our MGB's are actually mid-engine cars.......
