Re: Morris Minor Traveller for sale

Sound idea.

Hopefully you will get some more drives in it now.

Re: 1970 Minor 1000 Rebuild

Nice one.

I never liked those.

My friend and I had discussed removing the bracket and drilling a hole to use the pin and normal spring type used on a lot of other cars.

That tool is good as we struggled with long pointy pliers.

Re: Te Horo's Traveller

That's a pretty impressive repair even more so doing it on the car.

Re: Hi Im a new owner of a 53 split in Somerset

Hi and welcome.

I thought it was a tail light wired in along with the number plate light.

I presume the wire has gone then.

I haven't seen one apart, but I expect it only takes a 5w bulb.

Re: 1970 Minor 1000 Rebuild

Depending on the age of your vehicle if your extraneous wires are high up on the drivers side inner wing they could be from an old control box for the indicators if your car is old enough to originally have had the flashing brake lights at the back. Mine had and was later converted to the big back l...

Re: Odds and Sods

Looks like I can't edit it any more.

Two dampers probably gone just checking postage costs.

Re: Valve stem oil seals

I have just checked and the book says it is the same as the tappet chest cover bolts, though a longer bolt with the same thread would be more helpful and of course a 1275 doesn't have tappet chest covers anyway. There is an intermediate step too as once the distributor is out the drive wont lift out...

Re: Valve stem oil seals

It is possible to rotate the distributor drive around one tooth.

But when I tried it I dropped it in the sump and had to remove the sump and fish it back out.

Its fiddly because its a spiral drive so it rotates a fair bit as you slide it in place.

Re: Valve stem oil seals

The exhaust, heater and rocker cover are minor really. Reusing the rocker cover gasket once it is fully compressed tends to cause the leak. Also if it hasn't got lifting eyes fitted has it got the thick washers fitted to compensate for the lifting eyes as the bolts can bottom out and I have seen som...

Odds and Sods

Had a bit of a tidy up and have some small bits (and the front dampers) that may be of some use to somebody. Free but need to cover the postage and packing please if not collecting.

Re: Time For Some Serious Woodwork

Ha, black on black almost looks like a terminal cover. I would never have spotted it without a clue. I used to just pull the spade tag off the LT to stop it firing while the oil gets to pressure. I do it if towing too to stop the coil getting hot. The older ones with pull starter you can just not sw...

Re: Time For Some Serious Woodwork

Only the fuel suggestion. I thought I could see both choke and accelerator cables connected and as you have previously mentioned you had electronic ignition I presumed possibly incorrectly that you didn't have the vacuum advance, or if you did it was well hidden. So if its not fuel or the vacuum adv...
