F & Modern Register Meeting
13 February 2020
Our First meeting for 2020 went well, the decision to change to a Thursday seemed to suit most people .
The Night was a technical presentation firstly by Dick Manning and secondly by Scott Galloway.
Dick presented the group with a MGF Gearbox (Honda manufacture) and preceded to dismantle it, he explained the various parts and what their operation was.
The parts were compared to a MGB Gearbox and everyone could see the big differences in the size which obviously gave it its strength.
Dick then proceeded to reassemble it (well sort of).
The other presentation for the night was from Scott Galloway, the subject was the coding of key fobs for the MGF series.
Many people have had problems for some time in getting new key fobs with the right codes to unlock their cars and obviously to deactivate the immobilizer.
Scott has purchased a coding device so he can now code the cars to the key fobs .He gave an excellent demonstration and we were duly impressed.
Scott stated he would only too happy to assist others member s resolve their key fob coding issues.
Unfortunately Gary Chapman`s MGF was written off on the way to the meeting, although Gary managed to drive it home, fortunately Gary was not injured.
We understand it is now in pieces at a well-known MGF workshop
Many thanks to all who attended.
