Mar 15, My little brother purchased a MG midget with 64k original miles that wouldnt drive knew problem was clutch related fixed the clutch slave cylinder and finally got it to run, it didnt like to start cold but once it started it would keep running and you could actually drive it. Upon the first fill up the car began to run really rough, car now shuts off whenever you rev up the engine to high, over about k, and once in gear it is hard to get moving without shutting off, much less shifting to a higher gear or driving up a hill, car will usually stall and shut off. It is also difficult to restart the car if this happens. We thought that filling up the tank caused a lot of sediment to get into the engine so we drained the gas tank to inspect it and all looked fairly good. We have replaced the air filters, changed the oil, the fuel filter, checked spark plugs and they look like they are still in excellent shape.
Totally T-Type 2
MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Hard brake pedal What I actually mean is that when I haven't used the braked for while for example after a long motorway run , the brake pedal feels hard and also won't return as usual. I can still lock the wheels if needs be and it will revert to its usual brake pedal feel if I'm braking regularly. Is this likely to be a problem with the master cylinder? I have a later plastic reservoir type MC. No loss of fluid either.

The original 'frogeye' Sprite had been introduced specifically to fill the gap in the market left by the end of production of the MG T-type Midget as its replacement, the MGA had been a significantly larger and more expensive car with greater performance. Many existing MG buyers turned to the Sprite to provide a modern low-cost sports car and so a badge-engineered MG version reusing the Midget name made sense. The new Midget differed from the Sprite only in its grille design, badging, colour options and having both leather seats and more external chrome trim as standard to justify its higher purchase price.
The engine was completely rebuilt about 16, miles ago and has been well maintained since. This transmission effectively makes the driving experience closer to a Mercury Capri than a MG Midget. However, unlike the Capri, the MG is still rear wheel drive.
