Re: sf34 semaphores

I beleive the SF34 was fitted to very early MM Lowlights and was then superceeded by the SF80. As far as I know the fitting bracket is the same for both but you need to check the length of the lens as it may be slightly longer. SF80s are easier to fix if you break the lens !

PETROL PUMPS

If anyone is desperate for a petrol pump to get their car back on the road the club has just taken delivery of a small number of reconditioned pumps.If you are not in a hurry we should have more available in mid May.

Re: Horopito Wreckers, New Zealand

Horopito is an amazing scrapyard. I spent a couple of hours there last Easter before going to the NZ Federation Easter Rally looking for splitscreen surrounds for the Club Spares. If only it was closer. All the minors have been shifted to a far corner of the main yard and there are several lowlights...

Re: Steering wheel colours?

All the MMs I have had in last 30+ years have had brown or mottled brown wheels with dark brown painted centres ( although one recently had a green tinge to it) and the Series 11s (late 53 on) have all had mottled grey wheels with gold painted centres

Re: Seriesmm tool kit

I well remember that tool display. My own set ( originally from XMY846) is much the same except I dont think the plug gap tool in the photo is correct - it should be the common single blade Lucas one found in many tool kits in 1940/50s. Bryan

Re: Wiper switch

Are you still looking for the right wiper switch? it is the righthand one in the photo. I think we have secondhand and possibly new ones in the club stocks. Bryan Gostling

We have gasket sets in the club spares but you should be able to buy them locally as ours come from India.

Re: Dont forget 'Club Spares'...

Why is it I see owners asking for parts here that we have in the club spares stocks but they do not ring or email me to ask??????????? Bryan
