Thanks Ian. I will try this weekend. If I don't have any joy I will come back to you. They should be straightforward but I am struggling a little bit. I will let you know how I get on.

The rim is then given a gentle bash with the heal of your hand. There is an interference fit around the headlamp mount.
Screw the bottom screw in and job done.

I hope that helps.
Send me a private message with your email address if you want me to send you the 3 photos I took this morning.

Good advice but try and ensure the securing hole is lined up with hole in mount before committing to a firm downward push. A small torch shone in the gap helps with this. If not quite in line the rim can be nudged round a little.

I've removed and replaced mine three or four times now but it doesn't get any easier.

Richard, as I wrote before, I put markers made from masking tape to show where to line up the rim to the screw hole. My eyesight is not what it was.

That’s why I push the bottom in after locating the top on the lugs! A hard pressure by hand usually works and once you locate the screw with enough turns it holds the positon. I have to use a short stubby screwdriver though as the indicators block off anything longer. You often need special tools for a Morgan....

i take the offside indicator cover off to give screw driver clearance.
marked tape certainly helps.

I think the 'fit' of the latest rings is poor, my 2018 has a larger gap around than the '04 did

Does this contribute to the Mog whistle ?

My +8 had an intermittent whistle. Never new when it was going to give us a tune. The current 4/4 has been silent..,..So far.

Thanks all for assistance. Got them back on eventually. It didn't help that one was slightly off shape but with a bit off brute force managed to get them back on again.
