Re: Speedometer ser.no. coding?

I’m not sure that i’d bother getting an odometer fixed...recorded mileages on Minors are usually quite speculative ! :D

Re: what oils are best

Oh, and a well respected former member of this forum recommended SAE 40 or 50 for the dampers. He said to drain the old stuff,flush and replace with new. He was generally right!

Re: what oils are best

I’ve used Castrol EP 90 in the axle without problems. If you have a standard Morris gearbox the usual 20/50 will be fine.

Re: Powdery rear view mirror

A rub down and a spray with Matt black should do the job.

Re: Is moggy insulting?

A former neighbour had a Robin. He joked about putting twin exhausts on and using it as a wheelbarrow.

Re: What was the bull motif?

I believe the ‘bull’ is really an ox crossing a river. Part of the coat of arms of Oxford.

Re: 803 cc oil filter

My baby Austin a30 has a screw in oil filter. Easily sourced. I’d always assumed it was a modification, but perhaps not? Original 803 cc a-series.

Re: Traveller side replacement - a few questions

That’s a very good question! The tin is printed in German!
Does ‘3011 Farblos glanzend’ mean anything to you? 125ml was more than adequate to do all of the wood. I’ll attempt to post a photo later.

Applied the Osmo oil today. Nice to use and looks really good. Dried within an hour in the (very rare) sun.

Talking of Christmas, if anyone is lucky enough to have a band called St Agnes Fountain playing nearby don’t miss them!
They only do a short annual Christmas tour.

Re: Bojo the Cloan

I really hope this doesn’t lead to social unrest,riots etc. The country is split down the middle on this and whichever way it pans out there are going to be millions of very cross people. :(
