Re: Smiths heater demisting or the lack of.....

Can't say I find anything wanting with the normal setup, if the ducting is in good order and the car is dry inside it should be fine.

Re: Time for change

The ashtrays in the pre-65 cars are of little use anyway, if you enjoy a smoke at the wheel and are right-handed.

Re: PETROL

Hmm...just to bowl another googly, what do you all think about adding redex when you fill up? The formula seems to have changed a few years ago so it is thinner and less oily now. I believe it is marketed more as a fuel system cleaner than upper cylinder lubricant. But, it won't do any harm. I don'...

Re: Second hand driver seat frame and banjo driving wheel search

What is your location? Seat frames are not easy to post, so it would be better to find someone local if at all possible. I'm guessing that what you are looking for is the seat with the adjustament lever on it? Have you looked at your seat mounting - there are two sets of holes mthat can be used. If...

Re: LED bulbs anyone?

Be aware that the lamp lenses were designed specifically to use British pre-focus bulbs, either 404 or 414. Anything else may affect the beam pattern, dazzle oncoming traffic and potentially be illegal. The best setup for cars with replaceable bulb headlamps is two good 414 bulbs.

Re: PETROL

Ordinary 95 grade is more than enough for an old Morris Minor. You only need use 97 if you have a 1275cc engine - they had a higher compression ratio and to get the best out of them need the more potent bang water. But if the car is only used for very short journeys it will be asthmatic anyway.

Blue/white duotone seats

I would like front seats in duotone blue/white, or just the covers would do. Must be in good condition to replace my faded and very worn ones. I would also be interested in a matching Traveller rear seat.

Further to this, only soft water should be used in the cooling system. Those of you unfortunate to live in hard water areas should use clean rainwater.

Re: Problem panel

Exactly what the other guys said, the pedals were moved further apart when the 1000 appeared because of criticism that both pedals could be caught when you only wanted to press one. I remember it happening when I had a Series II.

Re: battery terminal cup connectors

Unfortunately people deficient in grey matter cut them off to fit the common SMMT clamps. Especially when converting earth polarity. You just have to scour autojumbles or solder them on to the cable. I had to do this on my Humber which has a very long earth cable. Be careful - the 'helmets' will mel...
