Lucas Dash Lever Switches Mod 182SA

Many thanks Chris - I hadn't seen that Lucas document and that is perfect - shows all the terminal combinations available. I've saved a copy for future use. :D

Lucas Dash Lever Switches Mod 182SA

Thanks again Chris - yes I've seen that too. Unfortunately the MB part numbers range from 211381 to 211386 none of which appear in the cross reference chart. Hence my request for Lucas numbers engraved on the side of actual original switches that MB owners might have out during resto. perhaps.

Lucas Dash Lever Switches Mod 182SA

Thanks for that Chris. Yes I knew about that site and one or two others who offer the pattern Lucas 182SA switches although from what I can find - only as the headlight version. The other problem with these pattern switches is they don't have the proper illuminated "window" section as per original. ...

Lucas Dash Lever Switches Mod 182SA

I believe the dash lever switches are all basic Lucas design 182SA. Does anyone have a set out of the car at the moment who could list the original part numbers written on the side of each switch? I know the internals are the same on several but would still like to know the original part numbers in ...

Heater hose connections, which way round?

OK - a follow up on this one. As previously mentioned, my Middlebridge MB60 has the heater valve set up as per the parts book.[image] valve.jpg [/image]. It is leaking very slowly from the operating spindle and I will need to replace it but i don't want to disturb it for a few days as I want to use ...

Heater hose connections, which way round?

Hi Jim, The valve is fitted in the hose which runs along the side of the right hand cylinder bank to the top connection on the heater matrix. I believed that to be the flow from the top of the engine but am always willing to stand corrected? The fan is single speed 14” Revotec controlled by a capill...

Heater hose connections, which way round?

Apologies for resurrecting an old thread - but it may be of interest to note that my car MB60 does have the valve set up exactly as per the Middlebridge parts list online. Possibly the valve was introduced during production sometime between MB50 and MB60? I was reading through the thread as I believ...

Replacement door speakers

From memory I believe they were very thin gauze - presumably acoustically transparent - primarily as dust protectors?

Replacement door speakers

Chris - mine were pretty much dust both front and rear. I'm afraid I just omitted them on reassembly - no downside noted yet! Sorry your not at Silverstone this weekend- would have liked to meet you and see G1 GTE on your car.

How to remove the Automatic Gearbox Selector Cover

20190707_191107.jpg 20190707_191053.jpg Ok - have solved the mystery at least as far as MB60 is concerned. The selector cover is screwed to the rear console itself by 3 self tapping screws. One is at the rear under the electric window switch area and the other 2 are on the sides set forward. I remo...

Thanks to everyone who posted - more or less decided to go with 91s as they seem widely used and no reports of any issues. Might help to keep the ride softer too. Cheers all.

Would any other Middlebridge owners reading this mind just posting whether they run 91 or 95 load rating - even if you don't feel able to give an opinion re advisability of either?

Thanks Peter, so in your experience the 91s have been fine. I'm thinking I might try Michelin Cross climate Plus which score very well as an all weather tyre both in terms of fuel economy and wet grip. However I'm not sure if they are available in 91. If not my second choice looks like being Bridges...

Middlebridge Tyres

I'm shortly going to buy a set of tyres for MB60 (standard MB alloys) - current ones are around 10y old and the spare dates to 1992!. They all look a bit tired to say the least. Not sure whether to go for load rating 91 or 95 - does anyone have a view on whether 91s would be adequate or indeed origi...

How to remove the Automatic Gearbox Selector Cover

How bizarre, mine is in the same position as the grey one (right back). I too cannot feel any screws at all at the front + no access at all at the rear. I'm intrigued now as I did consider removing my cowling as well. Looking forward to this mystery being solved. :D Mick MB 33 & 66 Mick, I never di...
