    hi Everyone.....
    I am still having problems finding an indicator stalk for my 1982 Marina based Ital, this is one final plea to ask if anyone might have a spare Stalk amonst their Bits in the Garage...... otherwise i will have to go down the road of a "Mix and Match and Modify" mode....

    And thanks to all who helped me earlier, if i haven't thanked you personally, its because i am still finding my way around this web site.!!
    Thanks again.....

    Pretty sure late spitfires and midgets used the same stalks, have you compared with what Rimmers sell for the spitfire?

    John has sent me some photos via email that I will now post below.
    It would appear that the problem is a broken clamp bracket. I know this is a common problem
    If anyone can help John with a replacement then I know he would be extremely grateful.

    Land Rover Defender stalks are similar but not identical. My suggestion would be to buy something like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/land-rove...AAAOSwf1VgADd-

    Then swap the stalks on to your backing plate. The wiper is dead easy - just three screws. The indicator needs a little more care; release from the backing plate very gently or springs and detents will go everywhere (ask me how I know!) but if you are patient it's not too difficult. You will have to also change over the multiplugs as well. However, I think you would have to do that with any replacement you found because they look like aftermarket items to me.
