Re: What you up to at the moment on your Moggy?

Just finished undersealing the Moggy with Lanoguard. Total job including prep and cleaning up was 2 hours and it took just 1 litre of Lanoguard to give it a good drenching. My only two tips are to keep the Lanoguard equipment warm to stop it solidifying in the hand trigger applicator where you don't want it, and to protect the brakes from overspray.

Next job is to tackle the box sections.


Morris Minor 2 door saloon May 1963 in dove grey. 83,000 on original engine. Known as Moggy Moo.
Heated front and rear screens, disc brakes on front, heater, radio, refitted interior including new seats, electronic ignition.

Like the nice explanation for doing the battery terminals in the right order.

If I remember correctly a 6 sided deep socket of 33mm does the job too.

And I think but haven't checked I had such a beast because its the same size as the starter dog bolt in the front pulley.

I hadn't spotted your videos on youtube.

Thanks.

I’m still a YouTube learner, so hopefully the next videos will be better.

Nice job, looks excellent. I think I might be referring back to that when I put Ted's dash back together :)

I hadn't realised you were running the Toyota Box too.

As far as I know there aren't that many around and when I was trying to find a clutch and searching for information it looked like even if you got a gearbox the only place for a bellhousing was Dellow in Australia.

So on a 1275 as well a similar set up to Rhubarb, but with a bigger Carb as mines only the HIF38.

My dad's old minor had a circle on the dash where yours had when he sold it.

It was where he removed his St Christopher Badge.

Hi Sean.

Charles Ware used to do the bell housing for the Celica box. They used to be popular back in the day. The Fords took over when the supply dried up.

Maybe I should get a St Christopher. Can use all the luck I can get Image
