Re: MM & early SERIES 2 GLOVEBOX LID CLOCK

Mike, Yes, Germany is correct and I would cover the cost of the return postage if I can't find someone over here. Our postage is actually quite cheap compared to most countries and I have contacted the MMRD (Morris Minor Register Deutschland) and will wait and see what comes of it. I could post such...

Re: Improved heater

I put a 76 cfm computer speed controlled fan in the Smiths round heater that I installed in the MG TD earlier in the year. It only draws 0.45Amps and kind to the weak old dynamo. The original fan motor was drawing close to 5Amps and would barely blow out a candle. The heater is now quite efficient. ...

Mike,
I don't have a lid. I will have to post it to somebody to test fit it.

I also have a Mini heater and am very pleased with it. I also fitted a speed controller.

Re: MM & early SERIES 2 GLOVEBOX LID CLOCK

Mike, Don, Thanks a million. I think I have everything I need. If the aperture dimension 78.61mm is true, then I have found a small "pudding bowl" that will fit the aperture perfectly. The bezel and the glass also fit perfectly. It is just a tad too deep but that is easily solved. I will make a 3D h...

Re: MM & early SERIES 2 GLOVEBOX LID CLOCK

Mike, That really helps-fantastic! Don, Yes the depth of the inner lip would be helpful. I made a draft taking Mike's measurements and popped them into the CAD. I can add a lip to the housing and an O-ring and it should sit nicely in the recess. This is what it could look like. I could also use the ...

Re: MM & early SERIES 2 GLOVEBOX LID CLOCK

Thanks Don,
I got the outer dimension of the bezel from an old post on here. It is mentioned that it is 85 … 86mm. My bezel is 84mm OD

Re: MM & early SERIES 2 GLOVEBOX LID CLOCK

Don, I have sent you a PM with the source for the bezel :D The hands are easy enough. In the first two photos above, the hands are made from 2.5mm red cable ties glued to a brass collet which was drilled through 2.5mm to take the cable ties. The cap is made from the blister packing of one of my bloo...

Re: can this block be rebored ?

It could be a shim to align the starter dog which is worth doing by the way.

There was one around here a few years ago but the owner sold it on and bought a late traveller.

Re: MM & early SERIES 2 GLOVEBOX LID CLOCK

Can anybody tell me the thickness of the glovebox where the clock is inserted??
I have made a 3D printed housing for the clock and should have it on Saturday but I would like to know the final depth so I can make a fixing arrangement.

Re: Hardi fuel pump

Pete, The down side on the Hardi is the noise level. It amplifies on the bulkhead. When you install it fit it on two M6 rubber bobbins and you will need to connect a separate earth for the Hardi pump. These ones: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1pcs-Anti-Vibration-Bobbin-Rubber-Mounts-Male-Boat-Car-Dampe...

Here are some pics of the prototype. I will have to get the dial properly printed as I am not quite happy with it yet.

Re: Hardi fuel pump

I had one for almost 10 years before it packed up. It was the diaphragm which doesn't like the modern fuels. I bought a new one and sent Hardi an email asking if they could repair the old one. They replied quickly saying -no problem. I sent it off to them and it came back looking like new and the re...

Re: standard or 4.5 diff.

See how much you get get the Midget axle for. You could just keep the diff and sell the rest on and maybe cover some of your costs. The 3.9 diff would be a great improvement.
