Re: Weight of MM Steering Wheels

George, My MG TD steering wheel (17") weighs in at 1.356kg without the boss. The MG TD steering wheel is keyed-not splined. I have made a drawing of the steering wheel hub if you need it. Regards Declan Hello Declan, I'm sorry, I meant "keyed" with 2 key cut-outs. The Series MM only needs the one. ...

Weight of MM Steering Wheels

Does anyone have an early Series MM original "brown boss" wheel, minus horn push, that they could weigh (metric)? I ask as I've just bought a "brown boss" steering wheel, originally off an early MG (?), that is lighter than a "gold boss" one. The MG one looks identical to the MM one but has slightly...

Re: Spotted today.

Spotted yesterday evening - forgot to post yesterday. Series 5 blue van. It was very dark where it was parked and my smartphone flash didn't do too well. Series 5 van in Farnham.jpg By the time we returned to our car, the van had gone. I think the colour was more turquoise, but the image looks green...

Re: Series MM wheels and brake adjuster holes

I know you said it's a 1950, but perhaps it was registered a few days or weeks into the new year. Unless you have a Heritage Certificate with the actual date of dispatch on it. Two of these rim, in the correct colour for my car - Romain Green - have no brake adjuster holes in them. Rims with no adj...

Re: Early Series MM wheel decoration

Thanks for that info. Both my Series MM (low and high-light) were 1950 and 1951 respectively - and both have the 2-piece grille with chromed insert. The 2 low-lights, whose pictures I've seen are 1948 cars - before the start of the Korean War in June 1950. Picture 1 Romaine Green.jpg Picture 2 eBay ...

Series MM wheels and brake adjuster holes

Hello Folks, I have managed to purchase some replacement rims for my low-light, given the sorry state of my current ones.

Early Series MM wheel decoration

There is a Romain Green Low-light for sale on eBay (item https://ebay.us/h3gTrD ). Its wheels have a painted white line, in a circle, just outside of the hub cap. I have seen this on another low-light, same colour. My question is "When did this type of decoration cease?" I ask as I have a Romain Gre...

Side-Valve Engine sump plugs available again

Folks, Moss Europe have the brass Sump Plugs (fit both the engine sump and gearbox drain plug) back in stock. The price has gone up a bit from earlier in the year (about a quid) but, more importantly, they have the copper crush washers in stock too. Certainly the "London" outlet has 80 washers in st...

Re: Alloy Kick panels

Hi, this should be made up of 2 pieces of metal and not the one you have. The parts are (1) sloped kick plate (2) sill/cill finisher.

Re: Alloy Kick panels

They are to be left as bare alloy. I have original ones (March 1951) on the black car in the signature picture and they are "bare". Later ones were made from steel and were painted "silver", but most cars have them painted in "body colour" as the reason for "silver" had been forgotten. My Traveller ...

Re: Split-screen chrome surround on eBay??

An impressive effort so far, Hear hear. I too think that the MMOC would have enough funds to get someone to tool up and manufacture rare items. It was ordinary members that got side-valve engine sump plugs and Series MM gear-knobs manufactured, but where are the items now? I sounded out ESM about g...
