One of a handful of modest modifications: Don uses a quick-release pin on his steering wheel hub.

Right: a knob for selecting between main and reserve fuel supply lines. Instead, rely on your odometer or trust the reserve supply to get you to a gas station. (It's spring-powered, and you need to wind it up approximately every eight days.) Don's gauges were restored by John Marks in England. Pull the choke knob to richen the fuel mixture for cold starts. The pushbutton at its tip operates to set the parking brake, not to release the parking brake. On a car with mechanical (cable/linkage) brakes, handbrake levers typically get used often.

The longest leaf of each leafspring slides on bronze bushings rather than swinging on a shackle. If you're interested in this sort of technical detail you'll enjoy our sister website: British This particular PA was ordered with MG's "Deluxe" dashboard option package, which included oil and water temperature gauges plus an 8-day clock. It flexs disconcertingly, which may be why "banjo style" aftermarket steering wheels were an extremely popular accessory.

Don's PA has been restored correctly with an American Redwood dash. In 1934 the United States banned export of redwood. (A banjo steering wheel has three spokes, each composed of four strong steel rods.) Jaeger mechanical tachometer indicates road speed too, assuming you know which gear you're in.

MG P-types were originally fitted with dual six volt wet-cell batteries.

"Sliding trunnion" leafsprings are a classic MG feature used on most models from the C-type (1929) through the TB (1939).

MG's PA was the last Midget sports car model produced before a major management change. In 1934, Morris became a member of England's House of Lords. Jaeger water temperature gauges (30-100C), Jaeger oil pressure gauge (0-160psi), and Joseph Lucas Ltd. Don says: "There is absolutely NO way I could have done it alone." Approximately thirty MMM³ guys from all around the world offered parts, advice and support for the restoration.

Morris was thus given the honorary title Lord Nuffield. Peter Down of Reading England came to Kansas for five days to help Don sort things out and get started on the right foot.Spare Lodge Type HN spark plugs mounted in a Bakelite holder. Cut-off switches were a precursor to voltage regulators.Note that the holder bears the trademarks of both MG and also KLG (i.e. Left: a valve for switching between main and reserve fuel supply lines. C: front spring, rear spring, steering box, steering column, brake cross shaft. When the engine is started, the electrical system's voltage is strictly a function of battery charge.The three car effort only required exactly one replacement part: a tail lamp bulb!The MG PA model was produced from (about) March 1934 until late summer of 1935. No more than 150 MG PA sports cars remain in existence. were technically separate companies although both were founded by, named for, and owned by William Richard Morris.

Using the Internet, Don tracked down restoration parts from eleven different countries.
