Re: MM carpet colour

Thanks to all for your help, I think I might have gotten lucky and found a supplier here in the U.S. who can supply in maroon, will let you know how it works out. Paul. manlyvaleaussie

MM carpet colour

According to Ray Newell (and who would doubt his word) my 1952 Series MM would have come with maroon carpet, however none of the suppliers I have tried have maroon, they all have red. Looking for advice. Thanks, Paul Follett. Yuma, Arizona. manlyvaleaussie

Re: Series MM headlining

To: TvdWerf I am extremely interested in obtaining the triplex headlining you mention. Alberta would be okay but Pasco (WA State?) would be great. Any chance you could ship it direct to me , at my cost of course. Regards, Paul Follett. manlyvaleaussie

Series MM rear window clips

In dismantling my 1952 series MM 2 door saloon it had the original window rubber but after nearly 70 years in the desert sun it was more like the hardest plastic you've ever come across. Therefore by the time I actually got the glass out of the rear side windows I had some clips in my hand (photo at...

This is Paul again in Yuma, my 918cc engine has the AC brand oil filter, does anyone know were I can find the sump to head gasket, the original fitted over the bottom of the sump but I imagine one that would fit into the groove of the base would work.

Series MM oil pump

Rob, I have a late 1952 918cc and the oil pump is quite different to the earlier type, I wish I could attach a photo but haven't been able to figure that one out, perhaps you could guide me through the process. My pump has just a straight intake tube of approx. 7/16" O.D. and the body of the pump is...
