Finally stripped the MGB engine in my workshop and it’s not looking to good, Cam followers are completely worn and starting to break up, most of the bearings have run to the copper, one broken compression ring on No2 cylinder and oil pump full of black congealed oil. The block has been measured and will go for acid dip, then rebore +20, machining of deck height and lower surface machining.
