I copied this from the Facebook page explaining the current situation. Please bear with him
Good morning, please accept my apologies for not getting back in touch, I'm currently suffering from knee problems which are causing mobility issues, however thanks to my local hospital physiotherapist things are slowly improving. We're still having problems locating the spares which are currently in several garages, unfortunately I don't know what is where as we had to move everything so quickly last year. I am aware that orders are overdue and I will be in touch with everyone as soon as I'm able to move around better. If you call our landline number please could you at least leave your name as it makes it easier for me to check back, thank you.
Thanks Chris for posting our situation on here much appreciated, however I'm still suffering with mobility issues following a recent fall whilst at home this has aggravated my knee problem which was going okay until then. We had been looking at a suitable workshop/storage area close to our house which was up for auction at 15k unfortunately it went for 35k to a couple from London who hope to convert it to a one bed dwelling, so our spares are at present still in much of a muddle in three garages all I can do is apologise for the further delays in catching up with the back orders that we have, but due to our current ongoing situation I hope you will understand. To add to our stock storage issues the estate management which own the garages are looking to sell up and redevelop the site for housing so we may have to sell off all the Reliant and Bug spares in the future unless we can find a workshop or suitable storage nearby.

PS: best to contact Dave Hemsley by phone, number in the Bug Club magazine. Please note the time limits for calls !!! Be aware that Dave's activities as a spares supplier are a valued voluntary service to Bug owners, he is NOT a 9-5 commercial retailer.
mybug: Anyone know the whereabouts of PTO 365M? It was mine back in the early 80s and some pix have surfaced here (apparently from ebay around 5 years ago) so is it still around?

mybug: Searched and spooled through every image/video/old ad I can find on the internet, I'm thinking that PTO 365M is not around any more. May be resting in a shed, but given the small and tight-knit Bug community, I'd have thought that someone would know it.

jefferdp: All, does anyone know the size of the headlights on the bug, Some say there 7/6" but that seems a little large to me. Also where can you get replacments now?

heartnut: Quick question: If I fit a Lucas 15/16/18 alternator, is it true that it will heed fibreglass work to fit it as the body is bigger than the original generator?

rolydog2001: I have fitted a Dynamator to get around this, looks original and gives the same output.
