A friend is finally getting Dad’s Moke done. In need of a master cylinder, starter, carburetor and wiper motor. First three are of immediate criticality. We’re here in the Northeast US but I doubt I’ll be able to source any of it locally.

Not sure if you've tried here yet, but there is an Australian Moke forum that might be able to help you out.

Great. I’ll give them a try, too. Was kind of hoping the parts wouldn’t necessarily be Australia specific as I know some parts were locally sourced but not sure of what exactly. Which is what makes the forum so great. All of that knowledge is here to dispel and correct my ignorance :)

The question I would have is are the carb and master cylinder standard SU and Lockheed stock? Do we need to source them from Australia or would they have been British?

A 1973 Aussie Moke would have had a locally made master like this

I think the carb would be a standard HS2 SU the same as the UK. I guess it depends on how original you want to restore the Moke, if you want it to be as it left the Australian factory there was a significant amount of local content and much of that would need to sourced here

He would like to keep it period. But the 1275 in it is not the original motor it will never be 100%. So some allowance can be made.

Thanks for the Pinter in the master cylinder. Out of stock but it looks like Minimania sells the Australian style reservoir separately.

Seems the wiper motor is also unique to Australian models too?

Zach, if your friend is in New England, point him towards the NEMO group. Our local members might have some of those parts available. Or he can post a wanted ad on the group Facebook marketplace. https://www.facebook.com/groups/321048765113176/

Being a 1973 it could be a standard Moke or a Californian (sometimes referred to as an Export).

These are both totally different in just about every part on the car. Parts that are unique to the 'Export' are well and truly NLA. There was only a small number of these Mokes made and so any used parts you'll come across are nearly always little more than junk.

Parts for the 'standard' Moke of the era are fairly easy to come by.

While I don't like steering traffic away from the forum, there's also another Moke Forum here;-
