Convertible/Tourer hood fitting.

Hello. I am fitting a new hood to my '64 Tourer. I've attached the hood to the back rail and am now working out the best way to attach to the front rail. Has anyone got a Tourer that they could take a couple of close up photos of the hood at the front corners for me to look at please? Thank you, Chr...

Re: No spark.

Just a quick update on the non/intermittent sparking. I took my tourer back to the garage which fitted the electronic ignition and when I had it delivered back to me he had put the original points back in. It now runs again and because I had also put a new fuel pump in she is running nicely again. I...

Re: No spark.

I appreciate the advice given so far - thank you. Can I really go back to basics and ask a question that as a novice would help me understand how things work together. So - I turn the ignition switch on and I get 12 volts to everywhere like lights, wipers etc and also to the coil. Now, when I pull t...

Re: No spark.

Thank you for the continued advice. I have 12 volts going to the new coil now and I have replaced the ht lead but still no spark out of the ht lead when taken out of the distributor. The answer may be in one of the 2 posts above but I need a break now and will see if the answer is in one of those po...

Re: No spark.

Thank you. Well somehow I am now not getting my 12volts from the ignition now so that is my 1st problem to solve and will hopefully fix the whole problem or at least get me back on track. The fuse is ok but I'm not getting 12 volts into the fuse box( a green wire) Trying to trace it back to the igni...

Re: No spark.

Thanks. I did the test with the ht lead and there is no spark coming from the coil. I'll put the other one back now to see if the same.

Ps. it is negative earth.

Re: No spark.

Ps. At the moment it turns over fine but will not start at all. Pps. I checked the sparking by removing one of the plugs and resting it on the block and had my neighbour turn the engine over. So I'm sitting here thinking maybe the original bad running was the fuel pump (which did need a knock someti...

Re: No spark.

Thank you for the replies. It started to run badly going up hill last autumn so my garage said the best thing would be to fit electronic ignition. He did that but the problem remained the same. It still ran but struggled up hill. Then it started to not start intermittently so I fitted a new coil. Th...

No spark.

Hello. A very basic question for a very basic Morris Minor problem I hope. I am getting no spark and changed the coil to no avail. I have just bought a multi meter to check things out. Can you please advise the correct checks I should make to trace the problem in a step by step order. Many thanks, C...

Re: Morris Minor Tourer chassis identification etc.

Thank you for all the replies. I'll maybe get a Heritage Certificate and contact the DVLA to try to uncover more of its history.

Re: Morris Minor Tourer chassis identification etc.

I've checked the chassis number stamped into the bulkhead panel and the numbers do match with the plate and the logbook details. The engine number on the logbook reads-

engine number 9HUH544960. The first H should maybe read 'M' ?

Ps. Yes, the engine number on the logbook is different. I'll get that number for you too. *And inform the DVLA)
