Gerard,I found your blog through your post on the Panasonic Plasma Fail blog. I saw your post about the problems you've had with your 42" plasma tv. I'm doing legal research for a law firm that is working on putting together a class action case in California against Panasonic in regards to the "blinking lights of death" issues. I would love to hear more about your experience with the tv, with Panasonic and to find out what has happened in your situation since you posted on the Panasonic Plasma Fail blog. If you're willing to share your story with me, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.Regards,Krystal

Hi Gerard:I found your site through the Morris Minor Autoshrine. Great information! I am thinking of converting an early MM Minor to a Midget 1275 engine and gearbox, LHD, so I am interested in your hydraulic conversion. Can't find your email address, mine is email@example.com if you could please send some details. Thanks, Chris.
Hi, My name is Don. I live in SC. Recently I purchased a 1979 Datsun 210 4 speed transmission with the horizontal drain plug for my MG Midget. It is a 1970 model with the 1275 engine. The reason I chose the 4 speed was due to price and availability of the 5 speed. Also i don't plan to drive on the Hiway alot. My question to you is I'm interested in the kit you have advertised. What is the price and how does one go about ordering one? My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org look forward to your reply. Thanks
Hey Gerard,I have just happened upon your website and am hoping you can help me. I'm restoring a 1963 Lotus Élan for a pal of mine. As crunched as the front end is, we've decided to change the headlights to a 'fixed' look instead of the rotating 'hide-away' original style. In keeping with the era, I would like to source vintage chrome trim rings and mounting buckets and so forth. We could use Morris Minor, or bugeye, or anything British early '60's. We even have money to pay!! Thanks for your knowledge and assistance.Bruce Eide. 605.376.5941. email@example.com.
Hello GerardVery interested in the rear oil seal conversion you do for A series midget. I already fitted a Moss one and changed the seal once and it still leaks a lot! All the racers say take it off and refit the scroll but Moss say theyve never had a problem!(I think they are not telling the truth)Anyway have you some guarantee that yours will work please as Im sick of leaving a puddle of oil when I stop somewhere lol! Please email details and price to UK firstname.lastname@example.orgCheers Iain.
Iain,Thank you for your comments. I will email you directly, but you can see the type of endorsement my seal design has here:http://www.mgexp.com/phorum/read.php?3,2681890,2681890#msg-2681890
I need some help sourcing updated rear brake back plates for a bugeye??

Hi Gerard,in the period bonnets page's you mention a bonnet from switzerland,could you tell me where did you find this information ? The one on my sprite has the same bonnet and is a bit damage in front, then I'm looking forward to have some more spec and pictures to fix it correctly.Thanks

If you are still in business please e-mail me at....firstname.lastname@example.org....We would appreciate you selling us this kit before we install the engine. Thank you.Jerry Norris

Hello - I have a 210 5-speed that is slightly different than most. Rather than FL, it is stamped ER. Looks to have at one time been painted dark green, not sure if from the factory. The other odd thing is that the oval boss on the front top bellhousing has a cover plate held with two screws, rather than being cast over. Otherwise, it seems exactly like an FL. Non-dogleg, 60-series, vertical drain plug. Any idea of why this is stamped ER? Thanks! BldgInformation@aol.com
I am interested in buying the 5 speed conversion as well as a rear seal kit. Captcha is not working, so how do I contact you?Regards,
Arnold, please leave me your email address and I will contact you.
You can also find me on the MG Experience and AH Experience forums.
Gerard, please contact me at email@example.com
Hello can you let me know about the Datsun 5 speed situation you have and I was wondering have you ever run into a problem with radiation on those Datsun trans from the parts coming from Japan. I may want a 5 speed trans and kit but it must be radiation free and checked and cleared of radiation ( Geiger counter ) Steve SDSBonds@aol.com P.S. My car goes in this Friday so please let me know as soon as possible Spridget 1275 engine I may or may not go for the whole thing
Steve, Thanks for your interest, but I have no way of testing for radiation. However, the gearboxes are from the late 70's early 80's so it's not an issue. None of my parts come from Japan, not even the rebuild kits and the kit is predominantly US made.
Gerald I live in Santa Cruz Ca. I have a collection of bug eye and midget parts I purchased 10+ years ago. Along with the collection is a daily driver 60 bug eye no rust and a particularly restored chassis. Would like sell as a complete package. Do you have interest or know someone that does?

Good evening-I am interested in a set of the front-tilt bugeye hinge kits. Can you contact email@example.comHillsboro, New Hampshire
Hello Gerard,I just ran across your story about the acquisition of the Bugeye Sprite with the Kellison hood. I had a one like it back in the 1960's. I wrecked the front of my '59 and bought a hood from Kellison, and at the same time I installed a formula Jr. motor with a 45 DCOE carb built by Joe Huffaker at BMC Motors in San Francisco -- it was super fast. I traded it in on a new Mustang around '64-'65 and regretted it ever since.Thanks for the firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm interested in rear lip seal kit for 1275. Please contact me at email@example.com
Good evening,I have a problem with the front disc brake conversion on my Bugeye. It has 3/4in Master cyl.from Moss. I have the same problem that you mention about the pressure remaining on the padsand heating up the front brakes. Took the master apart and it appears to have the white plastic valve that you recommend. Do you sell a rebuilt master that would address this problem? Please contact Jim at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks.
Hi Gerard I have a 948cc sprite with the usual scroll seal oil leak. I would like to purchase one of your conversion kits as I have been warned off the others. I am in England but if you could contact me Colin.email@example.com I would very much like to hear from you. Thanks Colin.
Hi Gerard, I bought a complete kit from you 4 or 5 years ago for a 1098 and now have a 1275 for my morris. I think I need a different size pilot bushing? and would also like to buy a seal kit and the starter also,thanks larry at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello Gerard, I have a 62 Sprite. It is fitted with front disk breaks. I have replaced the master cylinder with an after market. Same story that many have written above in your blog. I still have the old master cylinder. Are you still providing the rebuild service? If so, what information do you need on the cylinder that I have to determine if it can or should be rebuilt. You may contact me at email@example.com. Thank you for any assistance you may provide.
Hello Gerard, i have a 61' Bugeye im restoring and i am converting the front brakes to disc, i am told you are the guy to rebuild the master to a 3/4" from the 7/8". I would very much like to know if you are still performing this service and if you would do one for me. Also if you are still doing it what do you need me to do ? send you the master for rebuilding? If you could tell me what you need for me to do and how much i would need to pay you i would like to have this done by you. Any info you could give me would be much appreciated !! Thank you for your time. You can contact me at : firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you , Cliff Medeiros New Bedford Massachusetts
