SPECIALIST PARTS
FOR MORGAN TRADS


2022 PARTS WATCHPOINTS YOU MUST KNOW
PARTS WATCHPOINT 1 (within the Morgan community) Owners, even Morgan dealers, can be bizarre with part-sourcing. For example, some owners from certain countries feel that they are best to buy in their country! Yet it is a simple rule of logic that the farther from the manufacturer one sources, the further from the character and the knowledge one travels. There are rare exceptions of course. Additionally, importers charge 2-3 times what sourcing closer to the origin does) and causes so much grief.

1. The MMC prices are no longer the most reasonable that can be found. They are now more often much higher than can be from other sources.

2. The MMC is completing its abandonment of supplying trads with parts begun with the sale of the "old spares" in 2001. They are currently selling off the balance of the inventory in this area, though parts have difficult to obtain for some time. They have noted that their new line has no more than 2% of the same parts.   

3.
For some time, the MMC has charged an extra percentage on every part they send outside of the UK. In the beginning, the higher prices were supposed to cover shipping &handling. However, now shipping is charged on top of the extra percentage. The percentage for overseas dealers (the USA, Downunder, etc.) is 50%. It makes these ex-UK Morgan dealers totally non-competitive with other sources, even merely buying directly from in UK dealers. 

4. The dealer's contract imposed by the MMC forces all dealers to buy parts (if these are available) from the Factory or face punishment and fines

5. Sadly, the many generations of Factory supply, have spoon-fed most Dealers and they do not have the depth of knowledge on the original sources of most parts. The noted "All Parts" sourced above, are very knowledgeable, and if they have a problem, Morgan cogniescente will help them.

6. Lastly, some popular dealers who rely on serving older Morgans can be extremely predatory on parts supply for model and year parts not covered by their engagement with the Company. Quality can be bad and I regularly see markups from these people of 50-100% over parts from other sources.  

In a nutshell, to protect owners and their Morgans,  GoMoG is abandoning its 30 year old rule against publicly recommending dealers. As always, GoMoG  will not benefit from any source named. We will name those we have reason to trust. If they fail to meet GoMoG standards at any time in the future, they will be removed. Morgan sources will be prominently displayed, and we have culled the old list of parts suppliers and replaced them with SPECIALISTS in the needed component. If you have suggestions, please send them along!

WATCHPOINT 2 Non-Morgan community sourcing. Engine and gearbox parts are often better sourced from non-Morgan engine suppliers. However, buying through a Morgan Expert often guarantees the right part as their knowldge comes along with then part.

WATCHPOINT 3 Morgans, since the 1960s, have many variants around the world despite having the same year and model designation. These variations extend to engine management, structure, safety modifications, weight and performance though the cars look more-or-less the same. For a long period (1960s-1998 when the MMC under Charles Morgan, took over foreign compliancy in Malvern and subsequently lost those markets), dealers would modify  the cars for local regulatory compliancy. That meant that the same country could differently alter Morgans depednign on who one purchased from!
This creates much confusion, wasted time and the wrong parts purchase to this day. One must be sure what Morgan variant one has outside the UK. You could be buying for a toally different engine management or car. It also prejudices forum advice as the participants may not be aware of the the inapplicability of the advice they are giving. I run into this daily. :(


WATCHPOINT 4 The ever growing unreliability of new parts. We now live in a replacement rather repair era. Repair skills access is becoming more difficult as a result. However, the quality of new parts has become rightfully suspect. I find many new parts are defective from the box..either not performaing at all or soon failing. For moggers this has sadly been combined for the last generation's MMC parts sourcer and manufacturing management, who uses cost as its first priority losinjg the products once admirable reputation for reliability.
I find it infinitely wiser to have parts repaired rather than replaced with new, despite the effort to find skills. Human repair always upgrades the component in question. Or one can fashion a better component. The only thing one knows for sure about a failed component it that it fails. Ergo, if one gets the same component new, it will fail again. After a few years of follwing this wisdom, your Morgan will become bullet-proof, assuming a good owner.
