Re: jacking beam

Mine is a rather simpler affair, less professional even! It consists of a rectangular beam with a two inch high block of close laminate beech ply each end, topped with the afore mentioned rubber pads. I accept the point Phil makes although in most instances if feel the jack would roll forward to com...

Re: Adderley Park Number details needed

Chris, your last post makes no reference to my earlier suggestions, you may not agree with them, and that’s fair enough, as I recognise it’s your project but it would be nice to hear your views. If you wait until you have every detail of every Minor ever produced, I for one won’t be here anymore :o ...

Re: jacking beam

Would you believe it, I've got a similar bar, for central jacking. You’ve made longer top bars, which is better.

Re: 1275 timing marks

It’s the AEG163 I was comparing your lower photo to, the valves in which almost touched. I had trouble with mine which cracked between the seats. I tried a good few BMC dealerships to get a replacement but it had been discontinued so had to settle for the 12g1805 you mention. Incidentally a friend o...

Re: Reconditioned Box - Jumping out of gear

If you look carefully, ie magnify, ( I don’t think I’m seeing things) the area that looks like filings has a curve at the top, that matches the selector shape, possibly caused by it hitting and hindering its travel, when pulled back, maybe the problem?

Re: 1275 timing marks

I’m amazed to see how small the valves were in that early S head. Certainly enough room between to avoid the cracking that later heads suffered from.

Re: Adderley Park Number details needed

The data you have collected over the years must be astounding! Why not ready what you now have and sell to interested parties. You’ve more or less proved this info quest could go on forever. After distribution any future info that does crop up, could be in the form of a supplement. What do you reckon?

Re: Adderley Park Number details needed

Probably a good idea to separate the variants, I think people would prefer to have data just for their particular model. Possibly sell more that way as well, plus the models you’ve completed can be sent out now, rather than waiting for every variant to be finalised before being available. Bet you’re...

Re: Classical gas - say ‘no’ to E10 petrol

If I’m reading it correctly, there’s a proposal to maintain E5 in super grade petrol, so there’s a way through.

Re: The truth will out

Apparently the Black Death caused about 25 million people in total, although stretching for years, and
that’s when there were relatively fewer people about. It appears China Is in the frame for that one too.

Bl**dy viruses maybe, however I’ve been reading that the source of this particular one, appears to have started in meat markets in China, where there is an illegal trade in wild animals. If this is true, maybe it’s payback time. The tragedy is, that the more civilised people in society are being aff...
