A friend of mine recently sold his MGB, and like every other person with a British car, had a bunch of spare parts laying around. For lack of being able to get rid of it, he gave me a dismantled transmission. After work today he stopped by and dropped off the case, one thing lead to another, and now it’s a lamp.
We were able to secure the post of a broken lamp to the output bearing with some washers/nuts and feed the cord out through the clutch fork opening. The rest is just normal transmission/lamp stuff. Need to get some rubber or felt feet to put on it so I can set it directly on the tile floor in the basement.
