Before looking at the bumper irons, I thought I’d better sort the front panel.

I probably could’ve got away with the existing one, but the lower radiator panel was welded to the outer and I just wanted to make it right.
The car came with a new outer panel so I decided to make the lower inner and reuse the upper inner.

So I started by making a pattern for the lower part.

I cleaned off the bumper irons ready for fitting new brackets today and found that they are different lengths.

Worked on the bumper mounts today.


When taking the remains of the old brackets off, I cut through one of the tubes.

I made up a bracket to support the tubing.
I wasn’t happy with first one, this was my second attempt.

Had a bit of tidy up before starting today and found this spring.

I took a good while looking around the front end trying to figure out where it came from,
thinking it might be from the bonnet lever assembly.
Eventually I did find where it was from, when I picked up my wide clamp grips.

Then got onto the bumper mounts.

I trimmed the tops off the brackets to make them a bit more like the originals, then tacked the bars onto the plates I’d made and onto the inner wings to check the centres.

They were out by about 10mm, so I readjusted them then tried the bumper.

I cleaned up the plug welds and gave the back seams a coat of fibre filler and smoothed it round with some thinners to seal where I couldn’t reach with the welder.

Just a little job done today on the drivers door pillar.

It was much like the other side.

I’ve spent the last few days generally cleaning, sealing, applying rust converter, painting and under sealing.

Not as neat but less messy, no masking required and no accidental overspray.

What a massive landmark that is. I’ve been looking back over the thread. Very well done. hello1: hello1:

Many thanks for the comments.


Started on the mechanicals today.

I dragged the engine and gearbox from the back of the garage and gave them a quick clean off. The engine was out the car, in bits, when I bought it.

On the remote housing of the gearbox, looks like the fitting for a reverse light switch. Could it be off a sprite, I wonder?

Also, I wonder what the wire loop was for.

So possibly had a reconditioned box at some point.
I’ll take the side cover off and see how the gears look and see if I can see any obvious damage.

The engine number matches the logbook, which is nice.
I got a look at the camshaft through the tappet cover and it looks ok.

The bores look ok and there’s no obvious piston slap, so happy there.

I’ll take a big end cover off and see what it looks like, if it’s reasonable I’ll leave as is.


I took the heater valve off the head, I don’t think the heater had worked for some time.

The thermostat housing didn’t want to budge, so I cut down the side of the bolts to release some pressure on the studs and off it came.

I won’t be using that heater valve though, they’ve had a lot of bad press.


Someone had their monies worth out of the clutch.

I’ll price up having the head converted to unleaded while it’s off.

Strangely there was no marking on the block for cc. But there were these, what I assume are casting marks.

Re: 1970 Minor 1000 Rebuild

Post by Mecanglais »

Engine is a 1098, they had an aluminium tag riveted on the block, not unknown to become damaged and fracture.

Engine number appears to be 10V189L/H, late 1098 with revised (closed circuit) breather, it should have the 'posh' PCV (basically a breather valve/diaphragm) on the inlet manifold.

Head should be a 12G202, more scrubbing of the black oily stuff may reveal.

Agree that the clutch has seen better days!

Gearbox is just a standard 1098 one. That bolt 'wired in' is for the reverse selector detent ball bearing if I remember rightly. The reverse light switch on Midget gearboxes actually comes out of the front side of the remote, not the rear. Check for slop in the tail shaft, and when cover removed check second gear for play, compare synchro teeth on second gear to fourth gear (input shaft) and make a call on whether to take it into bits or not :D

Many thanks for that info.

I’ve never fully stripped a gearbox before, so it will be an interesting learning curve for me.

There are some excellent guides online. Have a look.

Take the hubs apart in a plastic bag or an old towel to keep the springs and ball bearings from flying into oblivion. I find a large cable tie slid over the gear, to secure the ball bearings against the springs, helps to refit the hubs together. The 3rd/rear motion shaft bush is a bit of a pain to do as it needs reaming if I remember rightly, but other than that, they aren't too bad. Just pay attention to the manual, in terms of end float, and pay particular attention to putting the dowels and balls back in (they are a semi-complicated procedure involving sliding ball bearings and dowels into the channels in the side of the box while sliding selector forks in to ensure they end up in the right place). If you are methodical (which seeing from your work here seems to be the case!) it isn't so bad.

Finished cleaning the gearbox today,

It looks ok to my untrained eye so I put the cover back.

There is a little play on both the input and output shafts but I don’t know how much is too much so I’ll put a new rear seal on and use it and see how we go.


Don’t know how I’m going to get this out though.

One thing I would say is, if you are renovating a gearbox, don’t paint it.
The paint coming off this one is getting everywhere.

With the bypass stub, sometimes you can get lucky and can get by with hitting a torq socket into the remains. Obviously have to exercise caution not to damage the remaining thread, they are an unusual thread if I remember rightly, BSP maybe?

Bearing in mind what you have overcome this far, I would be tempted to cut it to within a few millimetres from the base, try and shove some steel.tube down the inside and weld to what is left protruding.

Agree the gearbox looks reasonable inside. You could always get a cheap 'unknown' box and have it kept.to one side to rebuild should you need it. Input shaft, to be honest, as long as the bearing is clean and not rough to rotate, it should be fine, it is always stabilised. The output shaft, the play should be as close to zero as possible ideally, but a little bit won't kill it.

If you have some solid rod or a bolt that is a snug fit in the bypass stub it may allow you to get some pipe grips/small stilsons etc on it and it wont collapse with something inside it.

Not guaranteed to work but another option.
