Worth checking the screws that hold your front side lights/ indicators lenses in place.
Two of mine had corroded to such an extent that they had failed.
I couldn’t find suitable size replacements; despite trying both metric and BA.
Melvyn Rutter’s wonderful parts department quickly came to the rescue.
New screws complete with replacement brass fittings, arrived in the post.
Bit awkward to fit, but now replaced and secure.

Depending on age/source of the Lucas lamp holders Bud, the lens screws will be either 3mm or larger diameter 6-32 UNC. The length will vary according to lens used but easy enough to match OE.

I've certainly sourced the smaller metric screws with matching brass T nuts on eBay, which work fine.

When fitting current switchback LED's in front indicator Iocation I took the opportunity to change screws to stainless though. A fit and forget solution with a blob of grease. You should be able to find the 6-32 UNC stainless screws on eBay or from your local stockist. I use Anglia Stainless.

I got 6-32 stainless from westfield fasteners.
It is also worth looking for other products in their range to order with a single p&p.
Very handy to have a stock to replace old nuts,bolts, screws, washers on a Morgan.
