courtesy light switch

Hello, One of my courtesy light switches has failed, lost it's spring, I have repaired it by dismantling and fitting a new small spring between the end of the plunger and the body of the switch. Meanwhile I thought that I would get some stock in but Rimmers, Witor, and other well known names are out...

Re: prop

When I first got my car in 1981 the prop was fitted with slider at the gearbox, after joining the register in the early days I recall a letter from a member saying the correct way was to have the slider at the diff although it was claimed in the letter that a BL dealer solution in those days was to ...

Re: mot

Hi everyone, I'm just after some opinions on what to me is a bit of a grey area here. I taxed my car in February but my mot does not expire till July, I see on form V112 it states "It is an offence under Section 47 of the Road Traffic Act or article 63 of the Road Traffic (Northern Ireland) Order 19...

Re: Back to where I started.....45 years ago!!

Well, none of us ever have enough space, have you thought about a temporary garage like the ones machine mart sell, of course you still need to put it up somewhere but you can work out of the weather, should be nice and bright inside too, I always enjoyed working under a transparent car port rather ...

Re: Tyre choice

Yes, I agree, the Stag steels would be great and that would also solve the problem of my somewhat rusty original rims that I have to douse with waxoyl every year, but as you say they are rare now. I think I either have to get some Stag alloys or carry on with what I have, there are quite a few 175/8...

Re: Tyre choice

Hi Tony, I did think of the 14inch rims, and of course the stag alloys are a easy swap, I also looked at some MGB wheels, 14inch same pcd but 22mm offset, am I correct in that the Triumph offset is 19mm, I wasn't sure. Saw these for sale. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4x-14-inch-MG-wheels-4-stud/162929...

Re: Wooden door trim caps

As the original door caps can be restored I'm not sure how many people would opt for new replacements, although the original finish is difficult to remove it can be done, I stripped my own many years ago and re-finished in polyurethane varnish, not the original spec but I was and still am happy with...
