  1. Ah yes, I've done that already Peter! And it's reassuring to read that owners are finding this mid-mounted plate holds well through the decades. Still, the thought of getting an original spec reg plate is appealing.
  2. Thanks again for this. The reg plates I have are non-original and are a rather weedy 3mm thick aluminium. There is already a crack forming around one of the bolt mount holes. I will replace the reg plates with some more robust ones. But how many mm thick were these registration plates back in the 50s?
  3. Dear Graham, Mick, Roger, James, Thank you for your speedy input there.
  4. Hello all, The bolts holding the top of my front registration plate to the centre of the bumper can't hold the plate steady, and this is compromising the strength of the metal around the small holes in the reg plate, through which the mounting bolts pass. Well, I want to shift the plate upwards so that the middle of the reg plate is level with the middle of the bumper, see this image for clarity: So, I want to know if any owners who have their reg plate centred like the plate in the black car have problems with reg plates flapping around? If so, are there any solutions?
  5. Thank you for all your replies! Rodbr, I've pm'd you
  6. Hello all, Time to get a replacement dynamo for my TR2's old Lucas C39. Moss sell the GEU3101 copy of the Lucas C40, but it's unbranded, which doesn't fill me with confidence. Has anybody fitted the GXE3101 unit, which is also a Lucas C40 replacement? Both Rimmer and Revington sell them. Rimmer describe it as being a Dynalite product, but Dynalite products are made by Powerlite, who say all Dynalites are alternators in disguise, and Revington is hardly glowing about the product: "Revington TR prefer to sell [... other products]". So... has anybody any experience of a good quality, reliable, replacement dynamo -- an actual dynamo; not an overheating, rewire-mandating alternator in disguise! -- that they could be kind enough to pass on? Apologies for the long post here!
