TECH TIP OF THE WEEK
This weeks Tech Tip is from John Hubbard! - Thanks John ($20.00 will be credited to your LBCarCo account)
I found an easy solution to a cosmetic problem, with the answer right under my nose, so to speak. Starting with the '68 model, MGBs had the horn push on the left stalk and the windshield washer push on the right stalk. The end of the stalks were capped with small chrome domes. Sometime later, MG changed to a black plastic dome on the ends. On my '68 GT, the dome on the left stalk had rusted, and I'm sure that roadsters would be more vulnerable to rust on both stalks. I found that Moss part number 472-385, Cap Cover, small, which is for GT hatch supports, is an identical replacement part for the stalk dome.
To replace, unscrew the dome from the end of the stalk. The plastic threaded part with the electrical contact will come out with the dome pressed onto the end. Carefully pry the old dome off the plastic part. Using a socket that is just the size to press the edge of the dome, plus a layer of cloth to prevent scratching, tap the new dome onto the plastic. Screw it back into the stalk and the job is done.
I have taken some pictures of the process and posted them on my web site. You can see them at http://users.digitalexp.com/~users/ehubbard/stalk_domes.htm.
