Special Car Note:

The Von Neuman MG team race car that we discovered earlier this year (stored for 30 years in a garage!)

is now completely disassembled. The frame was perfect and has been sandblasted and is ready for its

paint. The suspension pieces are being repaired with some all ready for installation. We will be providing

monthly updates for all of you who have asked us for the news on the "Deidt-Bell Special" MG racecar.


 By Feb 1,2017: The Deidt-Bell Special  has been stripped to the frame.The frame has been string-

measured to assure it is straight. The frame has  been sandblasted and is ready for painting. Metal-prep

has been applied to prevent  rust. The bent front suspension  has been replaced and the shocks rebuilt.


By March 1,2017: The Deidt-Bell  Specials' frame will be paintedduring the first week of March. The

assembly of the removed and repaired parts will also begin this month. 65 years ago this race

 cars' construction began and now its reconstruction will be underway.


 By April 1: The Deidt-Bell's front end suspension has had all the bushings replaced, the shocks rebuilt,

the bent A arm replaced, the wheel hubs replaced for the original wire wheels, the coil springs

 replaced for the proper ride height, front wheel bearings replaced, new brake calipers installed and a new

rack and pinion assemblyinstalled with new rod ends. The front suspension and brakes now should  be

better than ever. Next month we will install the rebuilt rear end.


 By May 1, 2017: the Deidt-Bell Special has had the rear-end installed,new lower differential ratio, new

bearings in the differential and in the axle hubs, and new Alfin brake drums from Canada, refurbished rear

 springs obtained from Jim Silva because they are not making originals anymore, new brake cylinders and

poly bushings were also installed.


 By June 1, 2017-The Deidt-Bell Special: New stainless steel brake lines have been cut, formed flared and

installed. The gas tank has been installed.The brake balance bar has been repaired so it can be properly

adjusted.Steering shafts , universal joints and flexible connections have been ordered The drive line has

been installed and rear shocks have been researched and ordered. It is possible that we may have

located aset of original Borranni 72 spoke wire wheels- We will know by next month.


 By July 1, 2017: The Deidt-Bell Special: Everything rear of the  driver'sseat is installed and in working

order. Including the differential, brakes, wire wheel hubs, driveline, brake lines, gas tank, shock absorbers,

traction bars and springs. The front end is complete including springs, rebuilt shock absorbers, disk

brakes and new lines, new rack and pinion, new universal and splined shaft for steering, wire wheels and

hubs. The repaired gauges have arrived and will be installed in the dash.We are almost ready for the

engine and body. The driver's seat safety equipment is going to be a challenge as there were none in the

original car.Getting close to race time in August!!!


By August 1, 2017: The Deidt -Bell Special: Here we are two weeks to race time! The engine is in the

car.During the tune up we found the distributor had a bent shaft.Eventualy we found a distributor that will

work but is not original. With the work done on the rear suspension, the drive shaft became too long to

install, we had that repaired this week and installed.Wiring, gas-lines, brake bleeding still to do and also

the front end alignment. Then we are ready to put the body on.Difficult last minute thrash, but we are up to

it......Come watch us go!


By September 1, 2017: The Deidt-Bell Special: Scott and Don worked through Friday August 18, 2017,

the last scheduled practice day at Laguna Seca Raceway, but were unable to complete the Deidt-Bell

Special to our satisfaction so we missed the races.Since that time we have driven the car around the

block 5-10 times about 8 miles. Each time we have discovered an unanticipated problem.As of this date

we have a running car, brakes work, clutch works, brake light works, all safety equipment installed.We

hope to race the Deidt-Bell Special at Sears Point at the end of September 2017.


By October 1,2017: The Deidt-Bell Special: We completed the assembly of the Deidt-Bell Special

and entered the Charity Challenge at Sonoma Raceway September 29-30 and October 1. The car

ran well and nothing broke. The first rtace on Saturday, I started last and the car was slow but so

was the driver. We made adjustments to the car and in the qualifying race on Sunday the car was

10 seconds per lap faster. We made further adjustments and the car placed on the grid 26th out of

over 40 for the main Sunday race. Unfortunately the race group before us blew two engines and

oiled the track so severly I refused to put the car on the track. It was a very satisfying weekend

for both Scott and I.


By November 1, 2017: The Deidt-Bell Special is now on display at the Martine Inn. We will be

Focusing on the annual servicing, repair and maintenance of the '49 MG-Y, '52 MG V8-60,

'53 MG MK-2, and the '55 MG TF Pickup. We also have a lot of things to do in order to make

the Deidt-Bell Special faster such as removing the 2 rear springs leaves to soften and lower the 

rear end suspension and reshape the clutch and brake pedals to create the proper foot space;

make speacial fasteners for manifolds to stop leaks; redo the accelerator linkage to make sure

the throttle works properly and rebalance the drive shaft. We have many more tests ahead of us!


By December 1, 2017:Don and Scott were diverted  by fixing the MG-Y  this month, so updates

on the Deidt-Bell special wil be forthcoming.
