MG MGB Technical - Alternator plug clip
|Anyone missing this? Out of three other people I have checked with and six alts between us none had this clip. None of the usual suspects list it, but I found them here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ALTERNATOR-LOOM-PLUG-RETAINING-SPRING-FOR-LUCAS-15-16-17-18-ACR-/311151277236|
Hah, you made me look mate. No clip on our '74 B/GT, and don't recall ever seeing one there.

|Mine does. But it was part of the supercharger kit from Moss that was shipped from the US. The one it replaced did not.|
I've had both. Some cars had the clip, some didn't. I'm unsure if this was a "manufactured" thing, or if, over the course of years of vibration, some clips may have fallen off.
I have a '77 B, converted to a '74 (Dash, wiring, C/B's etc) The engine is also a '74 and has the clip, whereas the '77 engine did not.
Perhaps it's one of those things that make MG's so unique. :-)

|Almost every Bosch alternator, that I've seen, has had that clip installed from the factory. About half of the Lucas alternators that I've come across have it. Whenever I have a core, that needs to be returned, I always save the old clip for use on a car that doesn't have one. RAY|
