    Thanks Willy,

    "Fun useless fact finding" is a mental illness.

    Barney's article on his MGA Guru site plus your experience and the information that I cited earlier add credence to my hypothesis that tubeless tires and some type of tubeless wheels were available for late model TFs as standard equipment. Probably less than 40% of TFs had disc wheels -- not enough to note it in the m...

    My TD has date correct starter and generator that is not original to my car. But nobody knows that but me. :-)

    Some more- Fun useless fact finding!
    I have a 1970 Lotus Elan which I've had from almost new
    The first speed event that I ran it in, I got knocked back at scrutineering because I didn't have tubes in the tyres
    I argued the case that it had tubeless tyres and that's how it came new--------No was the answer, it hasn't got safety rims

    It's always-
    Ex -Pag

    I have an early TD (TD3042) with the oil pressure fitting at the head. There is simply no such M6 screw anywhere to be found near or on the pipe, banjo fitting or banjo bolt.

    I definitely pronounce MOWOG as a word. Spelling it out just sounds ridiculous. I think it's obvious they arranged it that way so you could say it instead of spelling it!

  • Bruce Cunha17 July 2019

    Thanks All. I will add these to the fastener list.

    I hope to have a draft out by early next week. It will be up for evaulation and discussion on what I found and what may not be correct.

  • Bruce Cunha17 July 2019

    WEll, I use X P A G, but then I also say MOWOG
