Switch the wires at the coil.
Turn your battery around and connect
positive cable to

the negative cable to the ground.
a wire long enough to stretch from the
positive to the engine compartment.
Have someone hold one end of the wire (with end
to the positive post on the battery.
The 2nd person take the other end of the wire
(wire exposed) and brush it against the "F" (field)
post on the voltage regulator
until you see a few sparks.
You are now converted. Check all your fuses
to see if any blew out, and
if you had gauges, you will need
reverse the wires or the display will be backwards.

HOT WEATHER RUNNING
The hot running mets can be helped by installing a BY-Pass insert in the thermostat opening. The original
thermostat had two control systems one blocked the flow to the radiator during warm-up the second control allowed coolant
to recirculate within the block during warm up. When the engine came up to temp. the first control opens the water flow to
the radiator and the second control closes the reciculate path forcing all the water to go to the radiator for max.cooling.
original thermostats are not easy to come by and most have been replaced with a single valve that only controls the flow to
the radiator and does not stop a lot of water from running thru the recic.area and not cooling down. A sleeve is avaiable
that blosks the by-pass passage allowing the use of a standard thermostat. these sleeves were available for MGB 1500 engines
check with a parts house that sells MGB parts.

Engine heating is why it is so important to check and adjust the valves and ignition timing periodically ~ I hear
Customers tell me " the valves are fine " but when I check them , they're always tight , not fine at all .
Water Wetter is a very good product ~ it is
also important to remember to change the coolant every three years at the very latest , even " Long Life " coolant
because coolant becomes corrosive after a time , regardless of miles driven .
If you mix your coolant , use distilled water (cheap @ drug stores & Markets) , pre mixed
coolant is good too , especially Honda brand .
Any time you're in a parade or idling in heavy summer traffic , or even
ascending a steep hill and you see the temperature rising , simply pull out the heater knob & turn the fan on full . you're
already hot in the interior , it won't make you any hotter and your engine will love you for it .
Synthetic oils also
help your engine run cooler .
