Getting the small bits together for my rebuild. I'm after the tubing and the connections from my Kent engine block to the back of my Smith dial, which of course is shared with fuel gauge reading etc. Has anyone in the Talk Morgan world any ideal where I can get a new one. In the pass it was set up to pump oil onto the Kingpins but of course that will be binned as I just use grease like most people these days. Apart form the pre war Oily rag brigade!
Apart from that has everyone please stay safe.

I about to suggest carbuilder.com - if you order from them ask for a catalogue - full of ideas and tips as well as items they stock. Pure petrolhead porn!
Their service is very good in my experience.

I took the original parts from my 64 4/4 to the local plumbing store and easily found exact replacements, cheap too.

The fittings are 1/8 BSP - although I don't know if they are flat or cone ends. (if you find out, please let me know!)

As a recent Morgan owner (1974 4/4) I'm not familiar with what is involved in binning the oil feed to the suspension. I've only just discovered the well hidden valve on the bulkhead (after reading the original manual!). Is this documented anywhere?

I put grease nipples on the top of the kingpins (not used, but keep the crud out) and then fit blanking plugs to the plunger. All fittings were 1/8 BSP

To thelastgizmo - I brought my MOG back in 2002 and the previous owner had already fitted grease nipples to the top and bottom. In fact it has the remote grease which is located on the inner wing. The idea being you don't have to struggle to do the top of the kingpins. Good bit of kit. When I stripped down my MOG I noticed that the valve located on the bulkhead which was left in location had he would have left a large hole.

Many thanks to everyone else for your replies.

Stay safe!
