MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Front Chassis Leg Hole
On my 1965 midget I have a hole on the underside of the front chassis leg. The replacements I know are for a later model, but I though it was close enough at the time. Now I am ready to repair this I was wondering if anyone knows what this hole is for. There is a thread so I assume something would bolt to it.
Photo will help explain.
I've seen that hole in Midgets before but haven't seen anything screwed into it from memory, Maybe it was for a shipping tie down bracket for export cars----?
If you do find you need it you could easily fit a nutsert/rivnut in there afterwards
|James, I can confirm that I also have those holes on my MKII Midget, and like you I don't know what they're for.|
Willy may very well be right, they could also possibly be for jig alignment/re-alignmet?
|Thank you both for your help with this.|
I think the holes are for letting in water and rotting out the front support and they seem to be very effective at going their job! ;-)
