The mog has a leaking radiator at the moment, coming out on bottom left as you look down. I am going to get a new one but for now wanted to seal it up with one of these available products like Rad weld etc. Is there one (product) that you recommend for a short term hold till I get a new one and drai...

Re: Spark Plug/HT leads Question

I am deliberating a bit as once the Morris is in better fettle it will likely be used a couple of times a week to go to work and weekends out as well (Shared time with my other classic that doesn't go out an awful lot). I want to get it out and used to being used again as it has been sat since 2015 ...

Re: Sorry I haven't a clue

Re: Sorry I haven't a clue

Well the old girl has arrived. I was in work when it was delivered so I asked the chap to leave it on the road outside. Well... It starts miraculously after an age of faff, the choke is stuck and once you finally get the car started you have to stall it to get it to stop. The gears are interesting h...

Re: Sorry I haven't a clue

I don't know a great deal.
It was last on the road in 2015 (passed MOT)
Seems to have sat since, needs welding, starts and drives etc.
It is living in a storage box at the moment so out the elements.
I'm expecting a total basket case but soon find out - she arrives Friday...yikes

Sorry I haven't a clue

I have just bought a Morris that looked like it needed saving, I must admit I am VERY novice and this old girl will need a fair bit of work probably but what the heck eh, you only live once :) I'll no doubt be driving you mad with questions for years, sorry :D couldn't leave her to the scrap man.

Morris as a daily driver.

I currently drive a modern VW polo as a daily driver - its only a 1.0 I have for many years liked the Morris 1000,the Triumph Herald, The mini and many other classics. I currently have a 1969 Daimler 250 but it would not be practical to use a 2.5 V8 as a daily driver, especially as I drive 40 miles ...
