Re: Recent acquisition

That car on gumtree is a real 'barn find' Richard. From a UK point of view it's in amazing condition, you are really lucky with that over there. I prefer your colour though, be it Mist or Porcelain green. I hope you decide to keep it when you respray the car, it really suits it. Though it doesn't l...

Re: Recent acquisition

Lovely car in a great colour, is that Porcelain green?
I agree with the others, you need to change that battery lead to a sheathed one ASAP.
I see you also suffer with one problem that we do over here, missing windscreen chrome surrounds.
About time these were reproduced.
Best wishes,
Mike.

NOS Morris Minor MM bonnet (panel only)

Hi, Not mine but I spotted it trawling eBay, thought others may be interested being it's NOS. So ideal for a restoration project, grab it before a dealer does and inflates the price. Best wishes, Mike. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/N-o-s-MORRIS-MINOR-MM-BONNET-SKIN-1st-type/303130888567?hash=item46940...

Re: Spotted today.

Got to be the same one I saw a few years ago in Frodsham
It does look like it. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me and I was driving anyway.

Re: Spotted today.

Hi, I went for a walk in the Peak District today (before we're all in lockdown again :roll: ) and spotted a very nice red Rover P2 (didn't realise they were available in that colour??) while heading out for my walk driving through Matlock, Derbyshire. This was closely followed by a Rose Taupe Minor...

Re: Young enthusiast Bangers and Cash

I know the sporting triumph club have the regular round Britain tour it would be nice to have the Minor doing something as well. Seconded, back in the day Minors were noted for their reliability, so why not! Once Sally is back on the road I will happily enter her, if the club organises one. Perhaps...

Re: ETHANOL CHANGES

Hi, I have fitted an E10 resistant rubber fuel line from the pump to the carb and replaced the rubber diaphragm in the fuel pump with an E10 resistant one from the States. However I didn't think about any 'O' rings in the carb set up itself, something I shall have to watch out for when Sally's runn...

Re: Engine and Gearbox

Hi Anthony,
I think what most will want to know is are you able to turn the engine, with the spark plugs out and using a starting handle or socket on the starter dog, in other words is it free or seized up??
Before they make an offer..........

Mike.

Re: Anti Rust Products

Hi, I use a combination of Dinitrol Converust and Isopon Zinc 182 primer (links below so people know what I'm referring to), along with waxoil / waxoil based underbody protection. They seem to work quite well (touching wood of course, as rust is the common enemy of us all), not perhaps as specialis...

Re: Windscreen bottom corner repair.

That's what I love about this site, there's always someone who 'knows or has used'. :D
I shall add that site to my favourites. Good to see the 'J' type is covered by someone too.

Re: Windscreen bottom corner repair.

Hi, I had a quick look on my break but can't find a windscreen surround corner repair section anywhere. I'm quite surprised someone doesn't make them, as it is a common rot spot. It looks like you will need to make up a repair section yourself, unless someone else on here knows a source and can pos...

Re: Fancy something a bit different?

As a post script to the above I would note that (IMO) the price of coverting a classic to an electric motor, or of a conversion 'kit' for those inclined to do it themselves, will have to drop considerably before people will start coverting their classics (of any make) en-masse.
Best wishes,
Mike.

Re: Fancy something a bit different?

On the original post...it really saddens me to see historic vehicles have their engines ripped out and replaced with electric power plants. The sound, vibrations and smell from the a series unit is all part of the Minor’s special charm. An electric motor is a modification too far. At least I think ...

Re: Leak from fuel pump

Here you go: https://www.sufuelpump.com/products/aub-6098-diaphragm I bought one of these Ethanol resistant diaphragms myself, well worth the investment. And Ethanol resistant fuel hose is also a good idea: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ethanol-Proof-Fuel-Hose-6mm-1-4-Per-Metre/281861292203?hash=item4...
