Kirks has always tried to make buying as easy and
thrifty as possible promising to try always to meet or beat
the competitor prices. Once a published price is in place
that policy becomes somewhat of a problem on several levels.
My returning customers know that I strive to give a line
item discount to all I sell and promote one stop shopping
for a total bottom line savings when certain items may not
fall into the parameters above. I still have a no hassle
guarantee of: "If you find it cheaper somewhere else
simply tell me where and how much and I will do all I can
to beat or meet that price!" This of course is
based upon equal quality and retail or retail "sale" prices.
The MGC differs most
from the MGB from the firewall forward and the rear
We enjoy working with people and feel we can advise good and
better prices and product when given the opportunity.
This comes at a cost of time but we are more customer
oriented in our approach. For those who prefer the
internet shopping basket, use any link, copy and paste the
cart or part numbers and email me for a quote. We have
direct cross references to our principle suppliers Moss, or
OEM part numbers; firstname.lastname@example.org
Below is a
compilation of the 3 parts manuals BMC published for the
MGC. It is completely searchable and printable....feel
free if you wish. When ordering from Kirks the OEM
part numbers are my first line of reference so this can help
us both to insure we are speaking about the same
parts. You may not find all the parts, for instance
carburetors are not included, but I am happy to assist with
rebuild kits or associated parts that often need
replacement. Link to the 9MB

I have been asked why these are so costly in
comparison with what other ‘major vendors” sell for
much less. Simple answer…these are the closest
to OEM ever available:
“Their” sets are incomplete, inaccurate, and
printed on sub-standard materials.
• Smiths heater rotation -
rotation arrows are on the wrong side
• Smiths heater, missing mfg
date, incorrect serial numbers
• Coopers - wrong size
• Tecalemit - unavailable
• O/D - unavailable
• Emissions (valve cover) -
incorrect settings information
• MG (valve cover) - die cuts
are incorrect for MGC (should be rounded not
squared off), MG logo is incorrect
• EPA firewall - unavailable
• Tire pressures - incorrect
information and/or incorrect fonts
• Odometer - unavailable
• Battery warning - incorrectly
Kirks-Auto’s offering via Plan B are built using
high resolution photographs of original labels and
is accurate in every detail including errors
original to each piece. They are printed on 3M
ControlTac material which is meant to do the job.
If you want something that's inaccurate and
incomplete but cheap, go to the major vendors.. If
you're looking for a product that is worthy of your
car and restoration, then the Kirks-Auto set would
be a better choice. You get what you pay in some
MG V-6 and
V-8 guys need to know I stock two styles of 3.07
crown wheel and pinion gears.
One that fits the factory MGB the other fits the
factory MGC and V-8s. The rear ends are
otherwise identical but the MGC got a larger carrier
and its CWP is thicker than the MGB stock rear end
carrier. 3.07 is the ultimate cruising CWP set
up. Both styles in stock. One used 3.30
CWP with carrier and one MGC carrier available all

As you may or may not know I tend to market price my
parts rather than get locked into a stock list of
parts and prices which literally changes with every
currency fluctuation, UPS whims of brokerage fees
and transportation. This is a current list and
a jumping off point for reference later on. If
you find a comparable part for less, I am happy to
quote based on bottom line delivery charges and my
paid by check discount on totals.
I'll be sending out a new "flyer" shortly with some
new parts including the GT stainless trims around
the rear hatch, pics of the exclusive vernier cam
gear, new air cleaner hardware "tubes" at a lower
cost, and the very popular silicone valve cover
gasket impervious to synthetic oil leaks, etc.
