Re: Sloppy brake & clutch pedal shaft

I've taken the pedals out - the modified LHD clutch pedal and shaft came out easily but had an unusual stiff wire wrapped around the shaft, IMG_20190516_122438.jpg IMG_20190516_122939.jpg IMG_20190516_123049.jpg But what is this? IMG_20190516_123252.jpg the brake pedal was a bit more difficult - had...

Re: Sloppy brake & clutch pedal shaft

There appears to be no bush in the outer part of the chassis leg unless it is hidden under all that grease. There should be bushes fitted in the chassis leg at both ends of the shaft. They are available from ESM - http://www.morrisminorspares.com/clutch-c15/clutch-all-models-c18/bronze-bush-for-bra...

Re: Oil leak from Side-valve oil filter mounting

Yes, the gearbox filler plug looks identical, externally, but has a different internal profile - hence the different part number? I had to get the car off the garden and onto the tarmac driveway to get it jacked up, so I had to refit the Purulator oil filter system (still haven't got the correct len...

Re: Sloppy brake & clutch pedal shaft

Finally got the car onto the tarmac drive and jacked up on an axle stand IMG_20190515_184036.jpg Now I could have a go at the shaft end securing nut - turned out it was quite loose, like a lot of the fittings on this car - as were the wheel bolts! end of shaft.jpg Got the nut off and the washer - wh...

Re: Oil leak from Side-valve oil filter mounting

It's highly likely the drain plug of an MG T Type and MG Series Y will be from the same Morris Motors / Nuffield Organisation parts bin. Certainly worth checking for size if you happen to live near to NTG Motor Services Ltd in Ipswich or a Moss Europe branch in the UK - London, Bradford, Bristol an...

Sloppy brake & clutch pedal shaft

Hello Folks, Latest problem on UFN 456 is the pedal assembly. Having interrogated the forum, I found that a previous owner of this car had asked the same question https://www.mmoc.org.uk/Messageboard/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=44449&p=428376&hilit=clutch+pedal#p428376 He either didn't progress the problem...

That's a great guide, thanks for posting.
Thank you for that Mr Panky. Shame that some of the other guides I posted up a couple of years ago have lost all their photos when the MMOC decided to create a new Website and the migration wasn't total :(

Re: Removing Boot Lock Barrel - Step by Step guide - Part 1

Hello Geoberni,
I thought that would rectify the problem myself, but I don not have and "edit" facility, any more, for my posts, as I was going to copy text from the parts 2, 3 & 4 into part 1 and then then rename the topic.
George.

Geoberni,
Thanks for that, I must have been having a "mental block" when posting this up (and also the other multipart post I did) - Doh!
Maybe I should't be posting late at night.
Thanks, George.

Removing Boot Lock Barrel - Step by Step guide - Part 1

The following is a guide on how to remove a lock barrel from the boot-lid handle and then replace/repair the barrel and mechanism. The handle, in this case, is from a Series MM or Series II boot-lid. In my case, the assembly was seized up, so I needed to dis-assemble the whole thing to find out the ...

Or just a beema towing a trailer Hello Mr Panky, long time no correspond. I think you may be correct, having looked at the origianl picture again, it isn't a "car transporter" and does look more like a trailer.

Re: Spotted today.

More than a bit suspicious, I tried the following -
DHE, DNE, DME, DHF (in case there was a black spot on the plate), DNF and DMF.
The only one that was a hit was
DME 110R, which is on a 2010 3ltr Diesel BMW so the transporter could be a BMW body.

Re: Oil leak from Side-valve oil filter mounting

Hello Phil, Unfortunately, it would need too much packing to do this and it will look unsightly. I think it best if I spend some of my pension on a set of new bolts (10 high tensile M10 x 100mm steel bolts for £5.08 with free p&p). I've just spent some of this money on buying some copper crush washe...

Re: Oil leak from Side-valve oil filter mounting

Even if you have to run a 10mm clearance drill through the bolt holes of the new filter head to accommodate the original bolts it will be worth while. I believe Rob Thomas has fitted this conversion to his side valve MM and therefore he may be able to provide further advice and a appropriate oil fi...
