I had a '74 B roadster that had halogen headlights fitted by the prior
owner.  I kept replacing failed light switches until I installed a
relay.  Older MGs have fuses for all the electrical accessories, but not
for the headlights!  I had a fire behind the dashboard of an MGA as
proof of this minor BMC oversight.  I'm not sure if this was corrected
on later MGs.  I'd have to say that the lack of appropriate fuses and
relays is one of the reasons that British car electrical systems get a
bad rap.

In the last 27 years it would be surprising if your headlamps HADN'T
been replaced, likely more than once.

I can't confirm what the originals would have been.
