I think that there is such a shortage that you'll not find an 'unwanted' one but will have to pay quite a few quid for one. Carlo had one for sale in the region of £100-150. You might then also need to source a new seal kit or have it converted to a modern seal system. Add another £50+.

I've got one here but wouldn't dare sell it since I might never find another.

I did wonder about making some new ones but there wouldn't be enough interest to justify the cost.

Yes,i think it would be a labour of love,as the saying goes.
I wonder how many sidevalves are actually left on the road today.I only drive mine very rarely now,its not really up to modern traffic standards!

That is a great shame not ot use it.
I do not have a Morris side Valve but I do have an Austin 8 side valve. This I use locally whenever I can ( not in the winter though) but only occaisionally on the Autobahnen even though it will compfortably do 70kmh on the flat. It brings a smile and often a wave to those who see it and only seldom is anyone annoyed by being stuck behind it.

If you are wanting the water pump to use a heater just mount a Smith's heater motor with a washing machine water pump attached. Mount it on a board on the inner wing and pipe it up to the engine. We ran out MM for 20 years before we got a pump
