    I wrapped up my little clock radio project and gave it away at a church gift-exchange. Basically just replaced the burned out clock with a new battery-operated movement, keeping the original arms.

    Next up on the workbench is doing something with this turntable I pulled from another project. I think I'm just going to make a wall-hanging out of it. I have a couple records that don't play well I can glue to the platter just for appearances sake.

    I *think* this thing had the intelligence to allow you to stack a combo of 45s and 33s, sense what was dropping, and change speed/tonearm position automatically.

    My wife just surprised me with an MG for Christmas. Someone on nextdoor posted it for sale a couple months ago and I randomly mentioned it to her in passing. I know literally nothing about these cars. It drives really nice and the PO had done a lot of work to it, but it’s an older car so I’m sure it will still be a “project”. After owning so many jeeps, I feel like my butt is scraping the ground driving this thing.

    Great in that you'll always be spending quality time in the garage with it. At least parts are cheap.

    I have a friend with a TD or TC in pieces, I think he'd sell it.

    I'd call the MGB a great car! My '74 has been sharing DD duty with my CJ5 since I bought it in 2018. Despite what everyone says, it has been very reliable for me after I worked out a few minor bugs. Yours looks like a very nice one too.

    Or better yet, a fuel injected 4.6l version of that motor from a late 90s Range Rover.

    Well the honeymoon didn’t last long. Found a crack in the head right above the #2 spark plug, which apparently is extremely common with these cars. I’m considering a couple options:

    - buy a new cast iron head
    - buy a new aluminum performance head
    - try Bars Stop leak. I’ve used their radiator stop leak tablets with really good results, but never had the need to try their head gasket/head crack sealers. Any thoughts on this? Am I just throwing $30 away? could it possibly cause additional problems? Or is it worth a shot? For what it’s worth, the crack is very slowly weeping coolant. I haven’t driven much, about 10 miles, but cannot even tell the difference in the coolant level in the radiator.

    The Bars Stop leak may work but you also may always wonder about it every time you drive it.
    Disassemble it to get a better assessment of the situation, if it is just a head issue replace it with the aluminum performance head and be done with it so you can enjoy it without worry.
