The MGA With An Attitude
TOOL KIT For MGA Twin Cam - TF-103

Tool kit for MGA Twin Cam BMC part number AHH5835, is the Tool Kit for the MGA Twin Cam. Abingdon King Dick drawing no. A5966 shows some tools that can be used for the Twin Cam, but is not a true representation of the parts actually in the tool kit. In particular, the "Screwdriver and gauge - distributor" (for setting contact points) which was part of the tool kit is not in this drawing. Alao the tappet feeler gauge shown as 0.018" thick is incorrect thickness, and is not part of the traveling tool kit. Note the date of the drawing is 6-3-58 (6th of March, 1958), which is some time before the first Twin Cam was delivered from the factory. By the time the first cars were delivered the tappet clearance specification had been reduced.
