Re: Back door seal problems on 1968 traveller

Hi Time Traveller, I can't see your original thread, so don't know if there are photos there, but I have the quadrant seal fitted around the door aperture, and the only seal on the doors themselves is a flat strip going vertically down the left hand door. It does make a tight fit, and I have to be c...

Re: Indicator/hazard light wiring

Just a final post to say that I fitted the diode harness from Classic Car LEDs this afternoon, it was a piece of cake and everything is now working perfectly. My new, old stop light lens arrived today as well, so now all my rear lights are bright and visible. Here's a snap of the the original Lucas ...

Re: Indicator/hazard light wiring

That is what you would call a "Timeless" Photograph. Unless I have missed something it all looks period, even down to the tax disc ?. Phil It's an original 1971 tax disc, but if you look very closely, it has the wrong reg number and it's not for a Morris unfortunately! It was a present from a frien...

Re: Indicator/hazard light wiring

Well, I disconnected the dashboard tell tale lamp and the wires I'd added to it, and everything is working as it should. Once the diode and harness from Classic Car LEDs arrives, I'll see how they recommend fitting it. I went for a quick test drive after doing a few other little jobs, and took this ...

Re: Traveller rear door seals

Thanks both, that's brilliant, and will hopefully help others in future as I've searched high and low for good pictures of the door interface and drawn a blank! It looks like my doors have dropped about half an inch, as the top of the doors is about level with the bottom of the rubber quadrant. They...

Re: Indicator/hazard light wiring

I brought a magnetic base LED Beacon to to use if I actually break down, having done so twice on the A1 shortly after getting the car.... :o That would have been my preference - much easier than wiring a switch in - except the roof and rear panels of the Traveller are aluminium so it wouldn't stick...

Re: Indicator/hazard light wiring

Hi I retained my standard bulbs for the indicators so as not worry about the problems you have had, I reasoned that the amount of current they will be using is going to minimal when the are not lit for more than a few seconds so LED seemed a bit OTT. I have found some excellent side lamp bulbs that...

Re: Indicator/hazard light wiring

Just looking at your circuit you have not only joined the left/right circuits at the dash warning lamp but also at the hazard relay output. A quick google search will produce a few wiring diagrams, here is one as an example. https://www.autoelectricsupplies.co.uk/file_uploads/170902_wiring_diagram....

Re: Indicator/hazard light wiring

Does the Red light in the Hazard Switch still flash? Without that, I believe your system will not be MOT compliant as you need to be able to tell the difference between Indicators and Hazards operating. Yep, the hazard switch flashes red when activated (and not when the indicator switch is used), s...

Yes you are joining both circuits through the tell-tale bulb, using a one way diode in each feed will stop your problem, just remember to get the diodes the right way round...
Perfect, thanks Steve! I'm glad something stuck in my brain from school. Hope you're well!

Indicator/hazard light wiring

Hi all, Last job on the snagging list to do before MOT, and it's electrical. Hands up, it's not the original BMC style wiring but if anyone with general electrical experience can confirm or deny my suspicions, based on my basic GCSE Physics knowledge, I'd be very grateful! A while back I fitted one ...

Re: Traveller rear door seals

Thanks Mark! It's the top of the doors that have me stumped. I had a look, and the top lip of the door doesn't come high enough to properly meet the rubber quadrant around the door aperture, though I don't know if this is by design or if my doors have just drooped! There's a tiny bit of overlap but ...

Re: Traveller rear door seals

If you haven't already got it, the Ray Newell/Steve Foreman Morris Traveller book is very good on this sort of detail. Not cheap, though! I got it for Christmas a couple of years ago - great book, but couldn't find good pictures of the rear door seals unfortunately! I'd like to get his Original Mor...

Re: Traveller rear door seals

Thanks both for the photos - always really interesting to compare Travellers from different eras and see all the minor (ha) differences - I do wonder what the reasoning is for some of the changes! Peggy has her original timber and rear doors; perhaps the foam CW sell is intended for older models. I'...

Traveller rear door seals

I recently fitted the quad rubber all around the rear door aperture, and the flat rubber strip that goes between the two doors, and it’s made a massive difference; the cabin no longer fills with exhaust fumes and there’s less of a puddle in the boot when it rains :lol: There’s still the odd drop get...

What have you done about the dampers?
I haven't been able to do anything yet- but now that it has working brakes and the suspension is attached to the car, I'll measure up and drill a couple of new holes on the bracket so that I can mount it the right way round.

New cylinder arrived today, got it fitted, adjusted the brakes and sorted out the handbrake, tomorrow I'll see whether it'll hold the car on a steep hill. I'm a bit more optimistic this time!

Re: A nasty shock

From what I can see the 'right angle brackets' are fitted to the correct sides. If necessary drill an additional hole in the damper 'right angle bracket' using the top hole as the reference point. The way the original damper mounts were fitted is totally wrong. Try and get your mounts in the same o...
