Many...

Re: In these uncertain times...

My convertible doesnt have a pin but has a lip on the back of the handle mounting plate. I have ground that off and the handle does move forward now but still doesnt lock so I guess I will need the handed lever that fits into the outer door handle.

Re: Traveller rear luggage cover

Another option could be a breakers yard as some models have the roller blind covers that you maybe able to adapt one to fit.
Some Skoda estate models, Focus estates maybe?

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?

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...
