[ROVERNET - UK] electric dipper switches

No, because my 1925 Rover 16/50 has pneumatic dipping, that doesn't
work, partly because I cannot get suitable leather cup washers but
mainly, I suspect, because it was probably never reliable.  I tried
building some solenoids that would fit inside the slave cylinders, but
although they worked on the kitchen table they weren't strong enough
when installed.  Incidentally I addressed the thermal problem by
discharging a large capacitor into the coils.  So if there are suitable
momentary solenoids designed for this purpose, I am very interested.
You imply that one model of Rover at least used such things.  Which, and
where might I get some?

Has anyone had experience with electric dipper mechanisms - the ones
mounted in the headlight surround and push the reflector and bulb
assembly up and down?
Mine sounds like a cranky cricket - and i am sure it is not supposed to
be powered up all the time.  It would get pretty hot and I fear a burn
Any advice greatly appreciated.
Tomorrow night is start-up night for the rover 10.
