hub cap or caps wanted

Iam after a standard Morris Minor hub cap with the M in the middle, I would like the chrome shiny type rather than the dull finish sort which I have been replacing.
Dependant on price I would have a pair please.
I also have a workshop manual for free if anybody would like it?
many thanks

Re: Rear shock absorber advice

It looks like my leaks are from the shaft area and because of this I need to deal with the leaks before deciding weather the leaf springs are tired or not. I was going to upgrade the oil in the damper pots as Ive done in my Convertible so a clean up and overhaul is called for. This is a fabulous "ho...

Rear shock absorber advice

On close inspection of my Traveller rear suspension I have a leak from the rear shock absorbers, I would like to know if there is a kit for overhauling them as I see shock absorbers on ebay listed as refurbished so ideally I would like to do my own.

Re: footman james

I used fj for 2 years until I sold my MG and went to cancel the policy after 2 months use, they wanted to charged me £40 to cancel the policy and told me that I would get a very small fraction of the cost of the policy back. I argued the case that I accept a percentage of the policy would be charged...

Pancake filter advice

I have a chrome pancake type air filter fitted to my 1098 Moggie and I wonder what fellow owners think of these in comparison to the standard set up?
Any experiences would be appreciated as I find I do get an occasional misfire when accelerating, usually when the car is warm.

Re: Not what they used to be!

I used to visit a scrapyard in Hockley Heath which was a good old fashioned place, I climbed 2 cars to remove a pair of front wings for my 1st car a Renault 4, at the same time filling my toolbox with switches and fixings!

Thanks for the replies guys. As I had already purchased fibreglass I was having a wee touch of the collywobbles.but feel a lot better now!

Re: get you home bodges

I gave up with my heater valve and fitted the brass tap used on earlier models instead. No problem since :) .
You would think that a replacement valve could be made to a decent standard though wouldn't you :-?

I did exactly the same on my Convertible as 2 previous heater valves leaked :x

Re: Traveller wood frame.

Before I replaced my wood earlier this year someone suggested that I buy the Morris minor traveller book written by Ray Newell. It was invaluable to me and gives step by step aswell as tips of replacing the wood frame. A godsend to me.
