Re: Rear Lights

The plinths can be very hard to find, as mentioned by palacbear, the bases are aluminum and the bolts steel so they often are heavily corroded. I found a pair for mine in poor condition and Ive never got around to drilling them out and fitting new bolts yet! There was a pair on ebay not so long ago,...

Re: Diagram of fuel pipe run

It comes straight out of the tank for about 4 inches then begins a 45 degree angle up to meet the floor and the clips. It then goes at another 45 towards the tunnel clips, goes over the top of the gearbox crossmember where it should have a bit of rubber pipe covering it, then alongside the gearbox a...

Re: Two-door passenger lock removal puzzle

I know I had great trouble finding a replacement of the early types after putting the original away so safely that Ive still never found it.... :-?

Re: Two-door passenger lock removal puzzle

The pin should push in and the lever should slide out, as Marks says a small screwdriver or similar should do to push it in.

Re: MMOC National Rally 2017

I did 635 miles round trip in the traveller and camped all weekend. As already said a good event, shame it was much smaller than other years but still good to catch up with all the old friends!

Been told at the AGM its Kelmarsh next year so much more central

Re: MMOC National Rally 2017

Im coming along with a few others from Northern Ireland, not so many cars travelling from here this time but I wouldnt miss it! Ive been every year since Donnington and a few other before that as well. Im hoping for a great turn out and perhaps some different cars that dont like driving too far!
