[TR] British Parts Common to a Number of Marques

 A friend went to Cuba years ago and took a set of spark plugs.  He presented them to a cab driver and it brought him to tears he was so grateful.
Spark plugs are small, cheap and hard to improvise.

I have an opportunity to go to Cuba in the near future and have researched the British Car scene there and next to the Cadillacs and Buick Roadmasters left behind by the Mafia in 1959, and a bunch of Chevys, there are a few British Sports Cars in Cuba. They don’t get the inflow of British parts that the American parts get so I’m thinking of taking a few interchangeable parts amongst British cars such as tie rods, bearings, etc. that they might make use of (along with some new baseballs for the kids). 

I know they are very creative in making those cars still run but I thought a few harder to get parts, that you just can’t take off the washing machine, might be nice. 

I’ve heard suspension/steering parts are sought after due to the potholes ever present. So I have some Spitfire tie rods that might also fit MGs and some other such parts that might be interchangeable.

Any thoughts or suggestions? Maybe U-joints? I do have to take clothes so nothing too heavy please.
