Re: Alternator conversion

Regarding disc brakes for safety, I don’t think drum brakes equate to unsafe, otherwise they wouldn’t get an MOT certificate.

Myford ml7 lathe

Selling on behalf of an elderly gent, he is apparently open to reasonable offers. Advertised here before ebay. I think there is a faceplate and spare chuck, and maybe other bits and pieces. It’s in Swanley Kent.

Re: Alternator conversion

How far do you go with mods before realising one might as well buy a ‘modern’ vehicle. I’ve reached the point of deciding wether to complete and fit a Marina engine or keep the original, it runs so sweet I’m starting to think I’d be silly to replace it. Some serious thinking required ! PS: I have fi...

Re: 'Clonking noise' When i turned the steering...

I don’t know if, it fact, I’ve ever used full lock, I’ve certainly not heard a clonking noise. If there is metal to metal contact in this situation, and considered normal, I would think entering full lock with a more gentle touch would be the answer, rather that perhaps turning the steering wheel at...

Re: 1275 Engine comparisons

Probably the front engine plate that Phil mentioned takes care of the engine mount situation.

Any potential buyer might like to consider an equally distressed bonnet for £474, recently advertised.

Re: how's your legs??

Looking at the prices Mark has posted, it is worth bearing in mind, that some legs have different arrangements for the area around the pin The original design is quite involved with considerable strengthening, something like a channel within a channel. I would be very surprised if replacement legs h...

Re: Bull Motif/ESM

When you see some of the wrecks on ebay that get bids, some folk will still be spending a few bob on parts!
Although I do wonder where the old car situation will end up, well motoring in general, for that matter.

Starter motor

I recently bought a starter motor from a seller on ebay, it is rated at 1.7Kw. Not for a Minor incidentally. Is this Kw figure a measurable one, as I’m wondering if, it fact, it has that rating? Hoping you electrical guys will know !

Re: battery terminal cup connectors

I didn’t think I was deficient in grey matter, but perhaps I am, because I prefer the type that clamp around the posts.
However a preference of the helmet type is purely personal and I don’t have any criticism.

Re: Really?

Im pretty sure an aluminium plate and two rivets would post in an envelope with a second class stamp. 61p.
The seller probably knows this as well. :D

Re: 1968 MM Pick Up Chasss Number help

The potteries branch have compiled a very comprehensive Minor identification list of changes, and other details from various models throughout the years. Could be very useful to Chris for his version.
