Barrie's Notes
Maintaining the MGB in the 21th Century, Barrie Jones, 2009
Book review by Robert McLellan
 

No one can have too much information on their car and if you have an MGB, you probably have a manual, owners handbook and some sales literature, but this very nice soft bound 84-page book is more than a review of old information. For example, the section "Omissions from the Workshop manual". Yes, if you think you have it all, you probably do not. Need to replace your engine and cannot find an MGB donor? Did you know the more common Morris Marina TC and GT used the same engine, camshaft and carburetters?

"Barrie's Notes" covers all aspects of the MGB for all years — mechanical, electrical, fuel, drivetrain, suspension, chassis and body. Written by a lifetime MG enthusiast and engineer, the book is the accumulation of his experience and knowledge gained from owning and maintaining over 20 MGBs. Packed with detail and with an index that runs into three pages, the book covers all the model variations. Well illustrated and not overly technical, it is aimed to keep your MGB on the road and giving you many miles of pleasure.
