In the annals (maybe too many n's) of catalog-dom the cylinder you
show was listed briefly as fitting MGAs 55-59. The catalogs no longer make
a distinction and offer only the "later" one. I "happen" to have quite a
few new ones. Lockheed part number 94202. Very difficult to sell to those
with the cylinder as Barney correctly described which also fits MGBs
#83901. I haven't found a reliable source of info as to IF the cylinder you
have actually was on a MGA, and if it was, when. So, all you MGAers, please
let me know if you have the one Trevor has, or the one Barney describes.
Oh, and the rebuild kits and all internals are the same.
Thanks Peter C
