The MGB has long been Britain’s favourite sports car (for good reason), and we’d like to keep that tradition alive, so today we’re teaching you some of the basic classic car maintenance tips necessary to complete a full MGB service in your own workshop. In this course of five classes you will learn the essential service techniques for your MGB. From engine checks to brake assessments you’ll leave this course knowing exactly what is required to keep your MGB in top order.

How It Works

Each course is divided into five individual classes covering a single topic. Each course, introduced by Practical Classics Magazine editor Danny Hopkins, features new skills for you to practice in your garage.

What you’ll learn

Engine experts Danny Hopkins, Matt Tomkins and Clive Jefferson cover all of the following:
  • Cold engine checks: how to inspect hoses, spark plugs and other components in the engine bay. Two classes are devoted to this wide-ranging topic
  • Warm engine checks: how and what to assess on a warm engine including ignition timing
  • Maintenance of suspension, brakes
  • Checking drivetrain, steering, wheels and tyres

Adjusting To Your Skills

Here’s the beauty of all our courses – you don’t have to view them in any order. The goal with this course is to show you a complete overview of an MGB restoration and servicing, from the first once-over to the final approval of the brakes. Each class takes you through a different set of servicing steps in logical order – but you can pick and choose what you watch depending on your requirements. If at any point in the course you feel as if you already know how to complete one of these steps without assistance, go ahead and click on a later video and learn something new. As we like to say: go at your own pace, or don’t go at all. Happy restoring!
