If your stuck I have one without the bottom stiffening plate. You could perhaps remove it from the scrap one and graft it to the replacement.

Thanks David, I'll bear it in mind if no one else comes up with one with the stiffener :D

There's an improved stiffener available in the US for midgets that is pretty much the same thing - made because the back plates are not always as straight as they could be. You could ask ask on Morris 1000 / A35 Forums as they had them too.

I was looking at this one when my original horseshoe stiffener and oval washers went missing - I gave them to someone to reproduce and never saw them again!!! BTW I thought this cover was dropped around the time hydro came in? Some of the correct washers are extended size to side and look more oval too. Here's the info I just found online:

https://www.britcarfixes.com/shop/sprid ... rrency=USD

Price: $32.00 plus shipping. The shipping weight is 15 ounces. The easiest way to ship is via USPS Priority Flat Rate Priority Mail padded envelope. The current price for this is $7.65 You may pay by Paypal to mg_john@hotmail.com. You may also send a check to: John Hewell, 300 South College Street, Walhalla, SC 29691

Just found this in my saved pics - could it be Bob 1071s workmanship?

The original stiffener will come off - as it did on my original with a bit of persuasion. Not sure if it helps and only a couple of the washers were this shape on mine.

I forgot to mention that I did get my replacement from the forum in the end, so good luck ;-)

I'm in no real hurry, it wouldn't be fitted until the engine is back on the box and I haven't even started looking at that yet :)

I think I may have one of these. Do you still need one?
