MG TD TF 1500 - Another interesting piece on the early 50

This starter switch is new to me. Might be common but the only ones I have used or seen have stud posts and not bolts for the cables

Threads into solid copper lugs and surprisingly it still works...which is more than I can say for some of the replacements right out of the box.

The bolts are 9/16" so ????

Also of interest to me was this HP fuel pump that was in the boxes of parts. Not original to the car bur what I thought was red paint on the cap was wrong as it is molded red plastic.

There was also a new unused rebuild kit with it including a new black cap

So I rebuilt the pump...originally I put the black cap on it but after talking with Dave I put the red one back on.

It also had the rubber cover in the box.

The fuel pump on my TF, which I believe to be original to the car also has the red cap and had the remains of the rubber cover.

I suspect that they were original to the early rear mounted pumps on TF's

The really interesting fuel pump cap is the clear plastic one that lets you see the action. How cool is that!
