Austin-Healey Sprite MG Midget Owner's Workshop Manual 1958-1971 948cc, 1098cc, 1275cc

Author: Floyd Clymer
ISBN: 9781588501264
VP Book ID: 20063
Pages: 344
Dimensions: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Description: 344 pages, with more than 200 illustrations and charts, size 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Originally published under the title ‘Sprite and Midget Owner’s Manual and Service Manual’ by Floyd Clymer just prior to his untimely death in 1970, this revised and updated edition was republished in 2015 by VelocePress. Written in easy to understand language, this is possibly the most user-friendly and comprehensive owner’s workshop manual ever published for the 948cc, 1098cc and 1275cc series of Austin-Healey Sprites and MG Midgets.

The contents of the original Clymer manual have now been reformatted into three separate sections appropriate to the three different engines that were used in this series of automobiles between 1958 through 1971. There is an engine/chassis ‘Model Identification Chart’ followed by a ‘General Data’ section that includes complete technical specifications for each model listed within the ‘Model Identification Chart’. There are detailed instructions for the overhaul, service and maintenance of the major mechanical and electrical components for the 948cc, 1098cc and 1275cc engines. In addition, the 1275cc engine section includes comprehensive emission control information and test data. There are also additional wiring diagrams that were not included in the original 1970 publication. Finally, there is a section on ‘Increasing Power and Performance’ that also includes detailed step-by-step instructions and illustrations for the installation of a Judson Supercharger.

The reproduction of a factory handbook included in the original Clymer publication has been omitted due to the fact that there were numerous variations of the official BMC handbook that were issued during the production run of this series of automobiles. Therefore, it is recommended that this manual be used in conjunction with the ‘Owners Handbook’ that was issued with your automobile.

Out-of-print and unavailable for many years, this book is becoming increasingly more difficult to find on the secondary market and we are pleased to be able to offer this reproduction as a service to all ‘Spridget’ owners, restorers and enthusiasts worldwide. ...$29.95 USD
