The lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs while adding to overall vehicle strength. Wind-up windows were standard, and a comfortable driver's compartment offered plenty of legroom. A parcel shelf was fitted behind the seats. The issue received public attention following a case in which a driver in a hired MGB was killed in a collision with a taxi. This engine was essentially an enlarged version of that used in the MGA with displacement being increased from 1, to 1, cc. The earlier cars used a three-main-bearing crankshaft, 18G-series.

How to Rebuild an Engine Take one old tired block, an equally tired cylinder head, some con rods, and a large selection of spare parts. Remove the camshaft bearings, oil gallery and welsch plugs, and pickle the block and head for a week. Build up the rear seal area and line bore block for correct clearances. This will minimise oil leaks from rear main bearing cap. Fit new cam bearings.
