Q. About 4 door sizes.

Hi,
Did the size of doors for the four door models ever change? I have a '63/4 car in need of four new doors and have found some from a '58 year minor, so would these be okay?

Thanks,
Chief :)

The resolution would be too bad, except for places where you can zoom to street level and then you'd need to know precisely where a morris minor would always be parked, because of google earth always being out of date. To continue this thread, anyone got any pictures of just the shell of a minor fro...

as Rob says, a picture from the top pointing down.

A picture of a 2-door would probably be fine if anyone has one.

Anyone got any birds-eye/shell views of 4 door saloons?

Hi, Strange request here, I wondered if anyone had any top-down birds-eye photographs of a 4 door 1000, with the camera focused around about the very centre of the top of the roof. Reason I'm asking is I'm attempting to make a 3d model of a Minor, but the only top down view I've found so far is an e...

In my case I usually get 7.6mb between 1am and 3pm, then from then on it degrades right down to 150kb (or less !)

I gave up bothering my isp to complain it was slow, I just hope we switch come May (end of contract)...

How To: Fit a new boot lid rubber.

First let me say that this wasn't written by me. Long ago I found the information on this forum, however it seems to have dissapeared :o from the forums (couldn't find it through search). Since I'd printed it off with other old threads relating to questions I'd been asking I don't know the original ...

Average costs of garage gutter repair jobs.

Hi, I wondered what the usual average charge (since garages all have different rates) was for a garage to cut away the old guttering, cure the rust along the roof area that meets the doors (the rust sadly spreads past where the standard guttering finishes) and put in the new guttering. Thanks, Chief.

I rang them today, asked them how they managed to take it out. Because the person I spoke to hadn't done the radiator removal part of the job he said he'd ask the other mechanic and if possible get him to come round today (it obviously wasn't possible because he didn't but it might be tomorrow morni...

I didn't mean it quite like that when I said I hoped for luck, I meant that I hope it stays a good tight fit.

Hmm well the one that we found loose at the bottom of radiator (which we think is the same as the nuts at top but it's v. hard to see clearly) are square thick black metal things. I wouldnt have thought that the garage in Q. would have used the wrong bolts, as they usually seem quite knowledgable of...

Actually in our case there's 2 bolts at the top, one down the bottom stuck in at a 45 degree angle, and the other one only the nut there, no bolt :D Maybe we'll end up asking the garage, how did you put it back in...

Easy way to remove the radiator?

Hi, Is there an easy method of removing the radiator. The bolts just turn on the spot, and it's incredibly hard to get any grip on the square nuts /see them to grip them. It ism't helped by the fact there are these odd brackets: ..._ _/ \_ (ignore the dots, the pic went wonky with just spaces used ;...

This was a new jet. So far it's now all okay, no petrol leaks, so fingers crossed, last time though it wasn't leaking then two weeks later it was, so time will tell, though last time we didn't even know there was the black rubber ring in there, so hopefully that was it. Only problem was the thread i...

rubber ring / jet assembly pipe to float chamber leak Q.

Hi, Just went to set idle speeds etc for engine adjustment, but on turning on the ignition petrol started dripping from the end of the jet assembly pipe connected to the float chamber. We kept tightening the nut but it doesn't seem to have made any difference, the leak persists. One thing we should ...
