judiths handyman created a new topic ' Answers on a postcard please' in the forum. yesterday

Having just walked past a junk shop I said to the missus, " we are not buying any rubbish today" then I spotted this.
The only tenuous link it has to MG is it came out of a 1924 Morris Oxford.
It works and tells the time to within 2 minutes every 24 hours, not bad for 100 years of age.
But now what do I do with it ?

I don't think so, the tapped holes are at a strange angle though, a few degrees off vertical.
I just expected an easy straight swap, but the threads were very tight, until I ran a tap down them.

I was lucky to find a pair of second hand chrome strips, the pair that are for decoration that sit on the platform just in front of the boot behind the hood.
Easy enough, remove the two star bolts, take out the old plastic plates, clean the surface and fit the new chrome ones.
The bolts came out easy enough, but I couldn't believe I had to tap out the clearance holes, (M8 by 1.25mm,)

with a tap and wrench.
I imagine that was down to corrosion and age.
But anyway, if anybody wants to repeat the exercise, make sure you have a tap first.
p.s. the difference in look is the business.
