Austin-Healey Sprite (Mark ill)M.G. Midget (Mark IT)2=Austin-Healey S . pnte (Mark IV)M.G. Midget (Mark ill)Issue 43IJ.EXPLANATORYI . The range of parts in this List covers all serviceable components on model/models to the standardspecification. Where the part is confined to one specification this is clearly defined in the Descriptionor Remarks column, and where the part listed is not serviced, this is indicated by the letters NSPin the Part No. column. This List is provided with a Group Index on the title-page, and also more detailed indexes at thebeginning of each separate Section. Additionally, Alphabetical and Part Number Indexes are alsoprovided in the preface pages.Items comprising an assembly (or sub-assembly) are inset for easy reference. This principle isfollowed in all Parts Lists, typical examples being given below. The Part Number Index will be issued twice yearly.Examples:Crankshaft AMK 2264Plug AMK 97....... _IDIlIJ-nar I CZA " 8Angl&-&ttachment-rear bumper CZA 147Bracket-rear bu mper support CZA 164 The word ' Ouantity' as shown in the heading of all text pages is intended to convey that all figuresappearing in that column are quantities used on a particular application and not quantities usedper vehicle. The assemblies and components in the plate illustrations are identified by numbers which corre-spond with the illustration references appearing on the facing text page in the column immediatelyfollowing the Part Number. Note the use of squares, rectangles, and circles on the illustrationPlates. The square/rectangle indicates an assembly which comprises all component parts shownenclosed. The components can, in turn, be supplied separately providing illustration Numbersare shown against them. A circle embracing certain components is used to give a magnified viewof the items which are too small to show up in detail if illustrated on the same scale as the otherparts on the plate. It is essential first to identify the part against the illustration in the appropriate Section of the List,and then make use of the illustration reference number to locate the correct Part Number and officialdescription on the adjacent page, taking into account Engine, Car, and Conunission Numbers, etc. ABBREVIATIONS: Standard abbreviations are employed. The complete range of abbreviationscovering all lists is given below.JKDBLLCLBLBDLBTLWBMMBMPBNNo.NSPOD(OD)O/SPprpoiPSVP.T.O.AAIR(B)(BP)B.lI..S.C(C)(CB)(CN)CPD(D)DCDfEcIIaE(E)EPEn(l"AlG(G)GPBBC(BU).lI.ml>1IJaDceJb NqaIred.BocIYll_rBelt pulleY' IlumberBrltwl Road Semce.Chuala Dumbe..Car D,1Imbe..Cabll_rCollUDi8.loD llumberCUome-platedCoupeDe-but.Do1ll>Ie-eoUDo1lh1e-elld.dDlam.eterG.P.O.

EXPLANATORY-continued I Amendments to this List will be effected by means of revised pages. Should it be necessary to addan additional page or pages to interrupt the existing sequence of page numbers, the added pageswill be numbered as in the following examples, which illustrate what would happen if it becamenecessary (A) to extend the information on a text page beyond the limits of that page or (B) to add anillustration page between existing illustration pages. Use of the decimal notation avoids the necessityof re-numbering and reprinting all pages in any section after the newly introduced page.Example (A)Existing text pagesAdded text pagesPage sequence will then readExample (B)Existing plates .Added plates ..Plate sequence will then readBA 5, BA 6, BA 1, etc.BA 51, BA 52, BA 53BA 5, BA 5,1, BA 5,2, BA 5,3, BA 6, etc.A 5, A 6, A 1, etc.A 51, A 52.
