Cut off the pipe on the radiator leaving approx 1" and purchase a rad hose with a 90deg bend from your local motor factor, make sure you get the correct internal diameter, or cut a Minor bottom hose to fit

Minor insurance

I've been ringing around re insurance and it is interesting to note that Footman James now charge an extra premium of £12 to guarantee the owner gets back the salvage in the case of a Category A or B insurance write off at no extra charge.

Heater valve replacement?

Long thread a while back re replacement heater valves which I don't think came up with a solution
So, how about this one?

Mud Plugging

Not sure if this link works http://bit.ly/2WqLdk0 but a very interesting Youtube video of the 1963 VSCC Rally at Presteigne.

Nice idea for a Minor Rally especially in the Presteigne/Mid-Wales area where the roads are quiet!

Who's up for it?

Laptop: buying used

My IT needs are minimal so I thought I'd buy a used laptop, not refurbished.

Has anyone got a favourite test I could run on a laptop to see if the hardware and software is functioning correctly
