MG TD TF 1500 - Aftermarket Valve Cover?
|Can anyone tell me anything about this valve cover? Period accessory? Dealer supplied? Maker? Thanks.....
|There were several after market suppliers of these alloy covers. I have a different one made by Doretti. Contemporary magazines / journals will be the best source of information, unless someone out there happens to recognise it. |
|It's an Arnolt product
|I have that one. The recess in the crest has red paint that looks original. The breather is supposed to have a hose that runs up to an oil bath air filter.|
I just have an ugly hose running down past the block.
....it's on the list of stuff to clean up.
|Bill it is a after market. |
You will need to hunt around to find it on the site.
|I had one here at one time. It looks the same as yours Bill. I added the red. I'd say Rod's is different. Notice the raised bosses for the studs.
I've got the matching side cover.
|Thanks...found it in one of the magazines, but it was identified only as aftermarket, no manufacturer indicated.|
|Years ago, Moss used to sell repros of these.|
|J K Barter|
|They do repro the side cover|
|W. A. Chasser Jr|
|I have one of these, and the matching side cover, on my car since I acquired it in 1977. Never knew it was an Arnolt item. Thanks for the insight.|
|John Quilter (TD8986)|
|Peter Edney still offers a new one. Has no breather and is expensive (₤150).|
