    I replaced mine with allan head screws. Easy to get at with an allan head lever.

    On my TD the original pipe is steel as in Jud's picture however our local Moss Distributor replacement is a cast aluminium pipe. Careful of the sizing as I mentioned in your other posting.

    I had a similar problem with my branch pipe where the pipe from the thermostat return was smaller than the other two. Mine was original. When I ordered a new set of hoses the supplier sent all three with the same diameter so I called them and advised them that they had made a mistake. They wouldn't agree so I went to their office and called on them. They were still adamant that all hos...

    I purchased a turn signal switch on ebay that ended up having the threads all busted off the housing. The seller was kind enough to send another switch with a good housing but somehow one of the contacts got broken and a PO repaired it with a piece of wire. As you can see by the picture the two switches are made differently so I can't take the two and make one.
    Does anyone have a good housing ...

    Tore, I bought a top gear kit for my MGA through Brown and Gammons a few months ago. I'm sure Malcolm Gammons will know the situation, Dave

    William, what you describe is called Growlerising in these parts!

  • Geoffrey M Baker25 January 2015

    OK, I have the last pieces of the puzzle. Turns out a PO installed a wholly eccentric heater system - nothing really wrong with it, but they changed a bunch of stuff around. They made up their own branch pipe, and then they brazed a piece onto the thermostat return pipe down to reduce the diameter to 5/8.
    In looking at the return pipe (see picture) It looks like they brazed a 5/8 fitting onto a...
