I'll have a look, I may have one , I'll need to look at the book first.

I think it hangs off the back of the extension casing near the back of the gearbox sump.

it wasn't the bracket I was thinking of, Rimmers quote a superseded number for GEX 7499; Clip - OYC007499EVA - Genuine MG Rover but that also seems to be unavailable.

I've got an original one on mine but I can't see why an ordinary exhaust clamp can't be used as a substitute.
