MM Radiator - Wanted

Postby Ian46 » Fri Jun 18, 2010 6:22 pm

When I bought my project it had a dismantled front end, no wings, no grille, no bumper assembly, poor bonnet.

I have found a very good cheesegrater grille etc but haven't found a good radiator (or a bad, or any) yet.

Can anyone help please. I am going to Harewood House on the Sunday.

Do you want the one with the large round filler cap or the later one with the ordinary cap?

Hi Mike, and thanks for the reply.

My car was first registered 29th November 1952 and I wasn't aware that there were two different types of caps, so please advise.

The early car rads had a large circular cap. Yours will have the normal cap. I have an old rad but it needs a new core which will probably cost £120+. How long till the car is ready, you may find a better rad.

Re: MM Radiator / Fuel Tank - Wanted

Just looked back at this old post of mine and wanted to let folks know that I found a very decent MM radiator last week. Original and doesn't need to be recored. Its taken some time but I was prepared to wait.

Also picked up an MM 'mottled' steering wheel at this year's National Rally (no not the £160-00 ones) but less than a third of the price on an adjacent stall. Also at the National I found a complete external fan belt driven water pump unit for a very reasonable sum.

Next quest is to find an early 'flat top' fuel tank.
