Re: Adjusting suspension

It's just a matter of moving the front arm on the splines - detailed on this forum. Very simple/quick job. There was no need to disturb the T bar to change the master cylinder....... :roll: Seek and ye shall find .... http://morrisminorowners.co.uk/howto_FrontSuspensionHeightAdjustment.php" onclick=...

Re: What's different about my 10V?

You should re-install the closed circuit PCV valve breathing arrangements. It's the best systemto control fumes and oil leaks - and it is what the V means.

Re: Dizzy cap/rotor gap

Some sell a 'spark intensifier' device with an intentional gap - the 'idea' being to allow the HT to 'build up' and then jump the gap -and the smaller plug gap. It doesn't work -as you are finding out. Still your experience is most unusual. Interesting to know if just fitting a better rotor will get...

Rock the car in gear to free the starter. Put everything back to as it was before. You seem to be making matters worse!

Re: New & Learning

Water heater for easier start on v cold days. Fitted to Canadian etc cars which are sometimes plugged in all night - or on a timer - to stop the engine freezing/easy start/fast heater output. Unusual in the UK !

Re: Dizzy cap/rotor gap

The centre contact is a spring loaded carbon rod. Sure you have the plug lead order correct with the new cap? 1342 anti-clock round the cap. Are there any sparks at the lead ends - maybe the contacts are radially set differently to the old cap - so the rotor is not opposite a contact when the points...

Re: Engine and box swap out

Yes -that piston has 'had it' - whether anyone will sell you a single piston is open to question - although someone on the forum may have some old ones lying about. If you have to buy a full new set of pistons - best to have the block bored to the next size, and probably as well to have the crank re...

Re: Choke cable return spring

Depends on the age of the carbs - I can't see the jets clearly in that link. The springs you show are the throttle return springs as mentioned above. There is usually an additional 3rd spring operating directly on the throttle cable lever. Not aware of any return springs on the 'choke' other than th...

Re: Fuel gauge

The black gauge works on a hot wire principle - it needs a different sensor - and it is fed from the 10 volt regulated supply on the back of the speedo.

Re: Choke cable return spring

There is not normally a separate return spring on the 'choke' - it works on a push-pull principle. There should be little springs on the side of the choke lever on each carb - short coils about an inch long - which do pull the jet up as the choke is pushed in. Are these missing? A picture of what yo...

Re: I've been terminated!

Hope you negotiated a good 'package' when you left. Never resign - always wait to be made 'redundant' and then argue for a package - or threat of Employment Tribunal - which they hate, because it upsets the remaining employees if they are seen to be being 'horrible' to you... Enjoy your retirement -...
