I have about 75 items on my list of production modifications from the
early 1953 to the later BN1 production. Hank

As you can see from my three tags in the attached photo, what is
printed on the Heritage Certificate is not exactly how the tags were

I've attached a draft copy of a short article I wrote on the most
obvious changes to the 100s from early BN1 to the last BN2. It has a
lot of photos, and was done in response to all the questions that I'm
typically asked at AH car shows and events. And while just a draft,
it's 95% complete, I hope to have it finished this week with added
photos. Until you get your copy of the Concours Guidelines, this
should help. 
I submitted this to the Concours Committee for inclusion back in early
2019 into the Guidelines, but they weren't interested. I also asked if
the Committee was interested in a similar article on the six cylinder
cars, and again no interest as I was told that this information was
already covered? Not to this detail, but hey, what do I know? I'm
working on a similar article for the six cylinder cars and should have
it completed by the end of the Summer, and on my Blog site that should
also be up and running by then. I'll keep you posted.
As I mentioned when I restored your trafficator switch, call me
anytime with questions. That is of course after you've read the
Factory Service Manual, Owner's Handbook, Factory Parts manual and the
Concours Guidelines to get your answers ;-^)

This is the response I received from Todd Clarke who makes replacement
tags. My Heritage Certificate (attached) does not show a "M" at the
end. Is it possible that my engine was built by Austin?

Thanks for the message. I don't recall if you called in the order or
sent by e-mail (can't find a copy)....did I miss the "M".
The "M" indicates the engine was put together by Morris. Engines were
also put together by Austin which
do not have an "M". As far as I know no one knows when or why the
different engines were fitted but I suspect it was matter of supply
and demand.
Of course the BMHT should have all the info. and the eng. number
should be noted on the Build Cert. they offer. Do you have
a build sheet?

Let me know how you want to proceed.
