We apologise for any delay that you might experience in getting your orders processed. However, please place your order as soon as possible and let us know if it is urgent. We will get your order to you as soon as we can.

Recent Additions to Stock
STOP PRESS! The Register can now offer brand new brass unions and olives for Y Type Jackall systems. You will need a set of two unions (actually called 'tube nuts') and olives to connect the reservoir to the pump. These cost £4.20 for the set. And you will need a further set of four unions and olives to connect the two feed pipes from the pump and the two feed pipes to the rear jacks at the T-joint on the back axle. This set costs £5.80. Please note that the rear flexible hose kit we sell includes a further three tube nuts and three olives (which are of a slightly different design). In the future, we are hoping to be able to offer new unions that connect the pipes to the jack tops, but these are not available as yet. The above sets are not yet available through the standard Shop ordering system, and the closure mentioned above will mean that there will be a delay in sending them out, but if you e-mail us direct we will get sets to you as quickly as we can. Thank you for your patience.

Moulded Ashtrays and Surrounds.
Original Y Type ashtrays and surrounds have been used to create the moulds for these replacements. They have been cast in flexible, two-part polyurethane, self-coloured to match the original in original Bakelite as closely as possible. The polyurethane appears to produce a far less brittle moulding. The ashtrays come complete with a reproduction round chrome plated brass knob, drilled and tapped for the supplied countersunk fixing screw. For more information and prices please see the following page: Y Type Ashtrays.

Of particular interest is the Limited Edition Sakaguchi Collection. These items were designed for us by the well-known Japanese Y Type owner – Masaaki Sakaguchi. Regrettably he died in 2014.

Our range of Books and other Publications, many written by Register members, are selected to help and advise you in the regular maintenance or restoration of your car. The experience of many members' efforts in rebuilding or refurbishing various components of their cars are recorded in the various data sheets produced by the Register.
The Register has also sourced restoration items that are difficult, or impossible to obtain from mainstream suppliers. In some cases these have been manufactured, on behalf of the Register, based on original patterns from members own cars. In accordance with MG Car Club Ltd. policy, the Register does not supply spares or parts for suspension, braking and steering systems, or any items which may affect the operational safety of the vehicle in normal use. If you have any ideas for any other products that you feel the Register might consider providing, then please contact us.
