Posted by: mikes Date: October 27, PM. Looking at buying a really nice 75 MG Midget. Body is very nice but the orig 4 cyl engine needs rebuilding. I have been into 5. What's all involved in converting it over to the 5. It would be a carbed 5.

Brian Kraus's MG Midget with Mazda 13B rotary engine
This allowed me to make a front mount that fit nicely in the Midget's engine bay. The 13B looked like it would fit well, except for one area that was hitting the intake manifold. That area of the Midget unibody was cut out and a boxed section welded inward to keep strength and give plenty of clearance. I also had to make a new transmission mount to center it in the very small tunnel.
