Tuning and Maintenance of M.Gs.,” by Philip H. Smith, A.M.I.Mech.E. (Foulis, 7, Milford Lane, W.C.2. 160 pp., 15s.)

With instruction manuals for the older cars becoming increasingly rare and priced akin to gold-dust, publications to take their place are especially welcome. This book about M.Gs., by a man who knows them thoronghly, covers mainly the PA, PB, TA and TC models, but is applicable to all the o.h.c. M.G. cars. The T-type engine and chassis receive ample mention and there are wiring diagrams, power curves, lubrication charts, and chapters on overhaul and tuning of S.U. carburetters and on super-tuning and supercharging. No M.G. owner, or prospective purchaser, should be without this nicely produced, clearly written book, the dust cover of which shows Reg. Harris with the TD M.G. he drove in the last R.A.C. Rally. The purchase price, will surely be saved time and again.—W. B.

Teach Yourself Motor Cycling,” by Dudley Noble. (English University Press. St. Paul’s House, E.C.4. 166 pp., 6s.)

Although you might imagine that dear old Dudley Noble (he of past Rover achievements and today’s Milestones) had forgotten well and truly his motor-cycling days, in this attractive “Teach Yourself” series he covers most of what beginners to two-wheelers want to know and does so simply, taking you into his confidence. How it works, how to ride it, how to care for it, how to repair it, what the Law can to you, the auto-cycle—it is all there, and good value by today’s prices.—W. B.
