Re: Smiths heater demisting or the lack of.....

Can't say I find anything wanting with the normal setup, if the ducting is in good order and the car is dry inside it should be fine. Hi, I tend to use my cars in all weathers, all year round, which means it can get a bit damp inside or the screen can get frosted over, so good screen clearance is a...

Re: Trolley jack overhaul

Hi, I had a very good long reach trolley jack for twenty odds years, over the last couple of years it struggled to lift the Minor, I tried fettling it but to no avail, in the end I took the attitude mentioned above and bought a new one, link below, not the cheapest but if it lasts twenty odd years....

Re: Improved heater

Hi, I agree with the above and will be sticking with my barrel heater, however I can see the appeal of an adapted (what is now referred to) 'Classic' Mini one. Are the links below what you are referring to? Prices seem to vary quite a bit....... Best wishes, Mike. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Classic...

Re: Smiths heater demisting or the lack of.....

Yes, I find quarterlights useful too. Modern cars are poorer without them..... The broken bakelite front panel was my fault, it was a spare I kept tucked out of the way (so I thought) on my workshop / shed floor....... Until one day I stepped back from the workbench and trod on it! :roll: The irony...

Re: Smiths heater demisting or the lack of.....

Funnily enough I opened up the demist vents like you have done, on Abby, my old two door. Whilst I've got Sally in bits I think I'll take the opportunity to do the same. So thanks for the prompt. :) Incidently, one difference I have found between my earlier version and your black heater is that the...

Smiths heater demisting or the lack of.....

Hi, I thought I'd post up what I think might be a solution to the demisting (or lack thereof) that I think we all experience with our original Smiths heaters. I've always found their ability to warm up the car itself adequate, once they've warmed up themselves of course, so I have no real desire to...

Re: Split-screen chrome surround on eBay??

Today we popped over to Colin's with Ray and Tony to trial fit the re-made Series MM / Series II windscreen joining clips Superb, well done. :D Even asked Indian members to see if they could find someone over there to make some maybe out of polished aluminium. Did you get a reply? Best wishes, Mike.

Re: W switch and Sun-visor

Hi Kevin, I know what you mean about the brackets, I needed some for my 1963 two door a few years back and they weren't much cheaper then but all the secondhand ones I saw were too rusty / too scruffy to restore, so in the end I bought new. You may be luckier with secondhand visors though. Best wis...

Re: MM & early SERIES 2 GLOVEBOX LID CLOCK

Hi, There is, what I can best describe as, an inner lip and an outer one. The inner one is near the 84mm that you mention, if the clock measures this then it should sit nicely within what I am terming the outer one and may even sit flush with the lid. It certainly won't 'pull through' once clamped ...

Re: Cheap winter car

Sorry to have kicked this off, it wasn’t my intention. You have nothing to apologise for, you merely started a (heated) debate about these vehicles. Going back to the original subject, another point raised was the price you paid, £4500 does seem a little expensive for something you term as a banger...

Re: Big bore exhaust

Hi, I spent ages trying to get a larger bore exhaust system, supplied by one of the main suppliers, to match up with first a Marina and then a Midget manifold for Abby, to mate to the 1275 Midget engine I installed when I owned her. The lesson I took away from that is, where possible, buy the match...

Hi, The good news is that it is currently taxed, described as a 'brown' Morris Minor 1098cc from April 1968. However you won't get the DVLA to help you contact the owner these days (since the dehumanisation of their service you'll have enough trouble trying to contact them). The Practical Classics ...
