Re: Morris Minor in a box

Update: After 16 days waiting for the delivery I phoned Lloyds Bank debit card fraud line. I'm happy to say they immediately refunded me the money in full and said it would stay there unless contested by the other party. I immediately contacted them on their online chat line to say I wanted to cance...

Re: Morris Minor in a box

Thanks for doing that. Interesting that you had a response before me - I had previously messaged them to say that I would be feeding back my experience on the MMOC forum. I received a message from them this afternoon saying they would look into the non-delivery. I've messaged them asking them to pho...

Re: Morris Minor in a box

Thanks again. I thought I'd looked everywhere. It wasn't on their website was it?

Morris Minor in a box

Has anyone bought 'Morris Minor in a box' - 1500 pieces (nuts and bolts) specifically for a restoration. I paid £240 a week ago, had an invoice but have not received the box. They don't answer the phone. They haven't responded to the 'chat line' or my email. Despite searching the internet I cannot f...

Re: Molly the Convertible Restoration

I have lots of photos to upload but when I do they are rotated 90 degrees Can I turn them here or do I have to rotate before loading. They are the right way up on my computer?
Thanks

Re: Molly the Convertible Restoration

I've dismantled the car and started work on the panels. I'm rubbing down to bare metal, using Fertan rust converter, then epoxy primer before normal primer and top coat. Fertan has caused me lots of headaches so I would appreciate advice from anyone who has used it as a base on a bare metal restorat...

Molly the Convertible Restoration

Hi All I am about to start a restoration on my 1965 convertible I acquired a few months ago. I believe it's fairly sound having a letter from Charles Ware dated 2005 which says 'the chassis has been fully rebuilt'. Floors, sills and pillars all seem good and it has been garaged by it's long term own...

Re: Starter Problem

Thanks Phil. I've ordered the tap you suggested. Sometimes there's just no logic. The 18mm adaptor comfortably screws onto the tester. The plug comfortably screws into the adaptor but the tester won't screw into the head despite the fact the plug screws into it comfortably. Ill try and keep smiling....

Re: Starter Problem

I just thought - there's an 18mm adaptor with it. I tried screwing it on and it fits easily and perfectly, which suggests the thread is fine. Phil, you mentioned the size is 14 x 1.25. I assume the 1.25 is the depth. Could it be that this is less than that and thus it isn't suitable? I've attached a...

Re: Starter Problem

Thanks Phil. I was hoping someone would say that - I thought the same but thought a good make like draper wouldn't allow a poor thread past QA. I'll dig out the paperwork - wish I'd bought it locally now rather than from ebay.

Re: Starter Problem

I'm now able to turn over the engine with the starter motor (not run, just turn over) so I thought I'd try out my new compression tester. However, although it looks the same size and thread as the plugs I cannot screw it into the plug holes. It will start to bite but after a partial turn it gets ver...

Re: Starter Problem

That's an interesting thought. I can certainly feel the spring inside the barrel with my finger. I may try that if it doesn't work when I bolt it back on. Thanks again
