MG Midget & Austin-Healey Sprite - Your Expert Guide to Common Problems & How to Fix Them

That a vehicle born in the late 1950s and ending production in 1979 would still be owned and driven today was way beyond the expectations of the original manufacturer. Hence, today's Midget and Sprite owner needs to be aware of the special problems that can emerge through continued use.
Just how do you look after and maintain a vehicle built last century? This book helps you identify all the things you need to be aware of to avoid trouble.

The shortcomings, the odd funny noise, that little something that just does not seem quite right ...here, we sort them out. The book systematically describes all the main components of the Midget/Sprite, and details what can go wrong with each.
Being able to identify simple warning signs can keep you ahead of a big repair bill - and possibly save you from being stranded at the road side.
