Re: Correct washer pump?

No correct type for a '63 if it's got the earlier type pull switches and pull starter. On these, washers were still a dealer or retro-fit accessory, such as the ones you name. Thanks for the response. I just wanted to check your reply is correct for the Deluxe cars we own though because, according ...

Correct washer pump?

Hi, I was wondering if there was any correct washer pump style for the '63 deluxe Minor? I'm asking because we have two '63 cars one early (quite original) and one late (not so original) and while the early one has a Wingard pump the other has a Tudor so I wondered if this was the norm (any pump out...

Re: caravans

For the sort of money he wants for this I would want it 100% complete and not 95%.....and even then, I would have to be desperate to get rid of £20k. It also states that it is being sold on a 'no reserve' basis but the reserve has not been met yet???!! I see looking online they bought it originally...

Re: Stolen EBAY UK

Since the forums are running off phpBB, wouldn't it be just as easy to add such things as custom non-required profile fields for people to fill out as they saw fit? (and is there a risk making such info be public?).

Re: Lost Moggy

I don't know if they post letters but you might also try a letter to a magazine such as Practical Classics or one of the other car magazines out there since it's possible that you might catch the eyes of an old mechanic or customer who might not be an MMOC member but may be able to give you more inf...

Re: Heater

When I saw the seller I wasn't overly surprised.

We've actually bought some things from them in the past (all good, no complaints), and even at the time I tried to get them to lower their price because I felt they were a bit on the high side.

They wouldn't budge though :wink:

Re: Equivilent liquid to add to the interiors factory sound proofing?

I forgot to ask:

Do you have a recommendation for which stone chip paint to use since there are so many brands to choose from and ideally a brushable variety would be best.

Thanks.

Re: Equivilent liquid to add to the interiors factory sound proofing?

Hi,
Thanks for the replies.

I can't believe I forgot about the existence of stone chip paint. I think that would be perfect.

I admit the depth was a guess from looking at it, now on actually measuring it I see it is indeed around 2mm. Somehow it looked so much deeper.

Equivilent liquid to add to the interiors factory sound proofing?

Hi, Over the years with various areas being welded I've lost areas of the interior factory-original sound proofing material (I presume it's bitumen?). Since the material once covered the floors from the front right the way to the back through the box section and up under the rear seat as one contino...

Re: Removing set filler from a rubber handled screwdriver?

Thanks mogbob, sounds like a good solution to try - shame my chisel also got a bit covered by the stuff too :D

philthehill, where's the fun in that?! (also that would cut into my limited remaining budget too much).

Removing set filler from a rubber handled screwdriver?

Hi,
Has anyone got any suggestions for removing hardened filler from a rubber handled screwdriver from both the handle and metal blade without damaging the screwdriver?

Re: Car Ramps - What weight do I need?

Thanks for the responses, I thought the 2.5T would be a safe bet but figured I'd check.

While it would be nice to get those cjautos' ones my budget is a maximum of £35 so I doubt I'll find any of those within my budget.

Car Ramps - What weight do I need?

Hi, I'm looking at buying a pair of car ramps for my cars (MM and MX-5) and wondered what weight capacity I should be looking at for the ramps. The ones I've found that come with low profile extensions (required for the MX-5) are 2.5 Tonne which I presume means 1.25 Tonne per ramp and I take it that...

Re: Is this the original carpet?

Thanks for the reply. I did wonder about the piping myself.

Hi, This is something I've kept meaning to ask on here and never got round to it. When I bought my car the interior was original, however I was never too sure of the carpets (they are in much better condition than the rest of the interior, though the pile is disintegrating).

Re: Duotone fabric suppliers? (by the meter fabric?).

Hi,
Thanks for the response. I didn't think it was ordinary vinyl though (unlike the porcelain green sections) as it has a rippled effect to the material.
