Re: Xflow Mounting & Radiator

It's a 1600 ford xflow, I know people do make an extra engine mount to attach to the engine bay, but it would be helpful to have some dimensions and picture as I would want to make one for my engine.

Finally the steering rack.
Can it do this? it was an advisory on the MOT saying that there was significant wear! Seeing ive just purchased the vehicle, i didnt know or even think that it could make the it wobble or swing?

Everything has been checked and it all seems good and tight.

I measured the commercial wheels the other day and they most certainly are not zero off set!! from hub face to front (outer) of rim measures 1.5" and from hub face to back (inner) rim measured 4.5 not adding up to a Zero off set like some people think. So what is the off set of morris minor wheels? ...

Self stirring left and right

My minor literally stirs itself, it wondered left and you adjust it slightly then it wondered right, as if its wobbling. It only happens over 30mph... What could this be? Any ideas

Thanks

Re: Uneven Tyre Wear??

What are they saying is correct? The track should toe in by 3/32" or 2.5mm. Incorrect camber can cause the same wear. Camber is set at the factory but can be adjusted if required but requires a camber gauge. Check the eye bolt bushes for serviceability and whilst you say that the chassis is ok I wo...

Re: Uneven Tyre Wear??

The issue we have is that that our pickups are our day use vehicle and as you correctly say, tyres are expensive, we have tried to address the issue so that new tyres do not get bad wear, but as you can see, after only a couple of months of use the tyre in the picture has been removed from our picku...
