The electrically operated gauges fuel, rev counter, water temperature and on — 72 MGBs the oil pressure have been known to fail on occasion. Locate the fuse block and check the fuse which joins a white and green wire. Clean the clips with fine emery cloth and replace the fuse.
We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap. We also used the diagnostic socket from the donor main loom.
Instrument Voltage Stabilizer Beginning with the model year MGB and the model year MG Midget, power for the fuel gauge and coolant temperature gauge on some cars is controlled by a voltage stabilizer. If your instruments are acting up, particularly reading low or dead, this device may be the culprit. This is a funny device that operates something like a turn signal flasher unit to switch power on and off in periodic square wave fashion.

I have just finished converting a '77 Midget to full electric operation. I thought people on this site might be interested in my car. My electric '77 midget now weighs lbs with lbs of LiFePo batteries in it.
I wanted to post this diagram because I realized a good wiring diagram could explain a lot of things to people considering doing their own conversion. In my diagram I added the BMS, and that complicates the wiring to some degree. The Elithion BMS needs separate volt supply, one for when it controls the charging, and another driving.
The MG T series is a range of body-on-frame open two-seater sports cars with very little weather protection that were produced by MG from to The previous advanced overhead-cam inline-four engine was by then not in use by any other production car so it was replaced by the MPJG OHV unit from the Wolseley 10but with twin SU carburettors, modified camshaft and manifolding. The four-speed manual gearbox now had synchromesh on the two top ratios and was connected to the engine by a cork-faced clutch running in oil. Like the PB, most were two-seat open cars with a steel body on an ash frame.
