Re: Throttle cable Query 68 morris 1000

A Mini one will likely be too short - but is otherwise identical - so you can try it. Alternative is the inner cable from a bicycle brake cable. Always carry a spare throttle cable ! its actually a gear cable from a bike, brake and gear cables have different ends, the brake one has a bigger end and...

Re: Help with lowering options?

As above - I'm guessing you have too low section tyres fitted. Lowering the suspension is a big mistake on a road car - with potholes and speed bumps to be negotiated.

the rears are 195/70/14 but could probably do with being 185s as they rub a tad even with rolled arches. the fronts are 155/80/14. and yup its lowered, but the fronts gonna come down a smidge more when i get the chance to do it
