Re: Early MM parts

I agree, this car deserves to be saved / restored. Would you be disappointed to hear that the Classic Car Club of N/Z are quite often consulted on such law changes? That does sound a bit worrying, like your own club is working against the ordinary enthusiast............ :( Best wishes, Mike.

Re: Early MM parts

Thus killing off home restoration..... Let us hope no-one ever applies this over here, potentially allot of perfectly savable cars could end up broken up for spares only. Plus with repairs only allowed to be carried out by a certified 'professional' restorer or restoration company on company premis...

Re: Early MM parts

It would indeed be a shame, I’m English and a motor mechanic by trade. I spent a great deal of time welding cars and this one is not that bad. None of that changes the fact that the law here now does not allow me to repair it and it needs to go some where. If I find someone that wants to ship it ba...

Re: Blowing Fuses Constantly

We have had more than enough on the forum complaining of no spark, only to find the supply lead has failed, fallen off or the coil or the pig-tail lead is open circuit. Those sort of comments could paint the club in a bad light and put inexperienced members off asking questions on this forum and / ...

Re: Blowing Fuses Constantly

Trafficator wiring is really simple, a single live wire to each trafficator, which then earths through the body of the trafficator when operated. The hard part might be pulling through a replacement live (not supplied in with replacement looms :roll: ). Mine were still working, so I have left the o...

Hi,
The NMP plate is in the engine bay, on the floor near the front on the passenger side, not on the engine, as per image below.

Re: blocked engine drain tap

I can't remember exactly who/where but I have read that the waterless coolant isn't really suitable for the A series engines, and that some builders (peter burgess maybe?) won't provide warrantee on engines that have been run with it Sounds like this question may be worth a post of its own on here ...

Re: blocked engine drain tap

My engine and heater are completely drained at present, so I'm giving serious consideration to the Evans prep and Power Cool 180 waterless coolant. So long as it is okay to drop it when I need to work on the engine and then put it back in again after......... It has a claimed life of over 20 years....
