Re: Headlight flasher

Looks simple enough to me , just 4 wires...an earth ( anywhere ) , a live connection ( ignition? ) , one to main beam and one to dip beam , all easily accesible under the dash...

Maybe it's because I like electrics?

Re: Rear shock absorber advice

Whilst the links are good and it is nice to do - overhauling the dampers either front or rear to me at least is a no brainer because the replacement & refurbished dampers are so cheap. If refurbished dampers were not available that would be a different matter. https://www.morrisminorspares.com/rear...

Re: Fuel tank sender unit

If you have good eyesight and/or long arms you can switch on the ignition and hold the gauge wire to earth and watch the reaction on the gauge....this will prove/disprove all the wiring....

Re: Really

What is the point?
Are they just trawling for valid email addresses?
Has anyone replied and been followed up by more scams?

I just bang a few big bids in ( in the region of £50,000:00 ) and report the listing...

Re: Prop shaft turning when in neutral

It's down to the oil in the gearbox transmitting a slight motion to the output shaft....no problem.
