Impending restoration

Good evening As mentioned in other posts I recently aquired a 1965 2 door morris minor 1000. From a distance it looks fairly presentable and has been painted in the past. The previous owner did things the wrong way round and painted over some rust ( and filler). I intend to have the car professional...

Re: Indicator issue

Apologies I didn't explain myself very well. The indicators work as normal apart from when the light or the heater are switched on. At that point the stalk light stays on constant and the actual indicator goes out, the flasher unit also stops. As the flasher unit then works as normal once the lights...

Indicator issue

Hi all The indicators on my '65 minor 1000 work fine until I switch the lights on or the heater then they freeze. I'm thinking something along the lines of a bad earth or something but I'm not that clued up on electrics. Would fitting a new earth lead help or could any of you experienced minor owner...

Re: Ezibleed query

That may be my issue, in one of the manuals it states to fill the master cylinder to the bottom of the thread for the cap,maybe my cylinder is over full.
I will try persuade my wife to pump the pedal for me again.
Thanks for the information thus far.

Re: Ezibleed query

Well I have been busy with work lately but on attempting to bleed the brake system I have hit a wall and would like some advice. If I open the master cylinder and depress the brake pedal I can see fluid being forced out of the cylinder. Does this point to a leaking seal within the master cylinder? T...

Re: Mysterious Scratches

I will second the hose pipe theory, I suffered the same damage to one of my previous cars so now I'm careful not to allow the hose anywhere near the car.
As the hose is fairly light I would think the scuffs would Polish out.
Good luck.

Thanks for your assistance.
I will drill and tap the cap which will hopefully sort out the air in my system.
Which hillclimb championship do you compete in?
I used to hillclimb a lifetime ago but work got in the way.

Re: Ezibleed query

Well that's me totally confused.
I have ordered the unvented cap from ESM and see if that will fit my lockheed MC.
If it does then I will drill and tap as per your guide.
Thanks for your input.

Re: Ezibleed query

It should fit as the non vented cap is a direct replacement for the Lockheed vented cap when ESMs additional remote brake fluid reservoir which is mounted higher than the brake master cylinder is fitted. If the original vented cap is retained the vented cap would leak brake fluid. Do you know what ...

Re: Ezibleed query

Thanks for the reply
Do you know if that cap is compatible with the Lockheed master cylinder?
The aftermarket MC fitted to my car has a smaller diameter cap thread than the Lockheed one.

Hi
Has anyone used an Ezibleed on a minor 1000 master cylinder?
If so how do you overcome the master cylinder cap issue?

Re: Desperately seeking early Minor window winder

Have you considered having a "new" one made?
I'm not for one moment saying I could make it but there are gifted people out there with access to very clever computer based cutting machines who could possibly recreate it.

Re: Is my clutch on its way out?

Sounds like the clutch release bearing is on the way out. If you are removing the engine to change the bearing you may as well change the clutch whilst you have it apart. I have been told the easiest way to change the clutch is to remove the engine and get at it that way, I have to go through the sa...

I like the addition by the seller that the auction is only for the cover and not the car itself, sounds like they are shocked at the price it has got to.

Re: Moggie rear brakes

The rears have less work to do than the front, look how many modern cars used drums on the rear up to a few years back. I would say the standard rears in good condition should suffice on everything up to a modified vehicle, you don't want too much braking on the rear causing the rears to lock when b...
