Re: Traveller Tuning

Probably be the same as there's no air box to dampen the noise out. I had the drilled air box on my Mini for a while but went back to the original (unique to the Rover carbed Cooper) and found it quieter without any detrimental effect. The drilled box does give a nice throaty growl though 8)

Re: Traveller Tuning

The manifolds shown above came off a Mini 1100 engine but I've since fitted an alloy inlet manifold and Midget exhaust manifold since that picture was taken, the down pipe had to be modified to fit but it made quite a difference in performance.

Re: Traveller Tuning

If it's a cone type K&N I personally wouldn't use it. I've done pretty much the same mods as you and did fit a K&N cone but it was very noisy. Instead i used a K&N element in a Mini air box with a few holes bored around the outside, no difference in performance and a lot quieter. In fact I fitted a ...

Re: Car cover propping

I bought a Stormforce cover for my Traveller and will not use it again. Used it a couple of winters ago resulting in micro blistering on the roof and rotten joints in the wood. There was already staining on the wood in places but instead of protecting it it seemed to make it a whole lot worse. The c...

The same manifold was fitted to Minis too, plenty of them around. I had one fitted to my traveller for a while.

That's crazy cheap.

Re: Diff options

I've got a 3.7 diff on my traveller with a mildly tuned 1098. It went great with the original 4.22 diff but did scream a bit at higher speeds. The 3.7 has dulled the accelleration to where it was with the 4.22 but more relaxed cruising.

Re: Wiring flasher relay

I swapped from positive to negative earth on my '71 traveller and had no issue at all with the indicators, didn't touch any of the wiring associated with them so I guess they are not polarity sensitive.

Re: Mildred my convertible

I've not long had some paint matched for my Commer Jennings Roadranger. It's an unknown shade of beige and the paint suppliers (P&M Panels in Warrington) did a fantastic job in getting it right - very difficult to tell original from new and no issue with mixing it in celly. So it's where you go to g...

A very nice van with plenty of chrome driving along Frodsham High Street this afternoon. I think there was a car show on locally but didn't manage to get there.

My premiums were about the same as last year (RH Specialists), just a slightly more because of an increase in the Insurance Premium Tax.

Re: Driving to Scotland - Any Tips?

I believe so. It's a non- franchised farm shop and restaurant run by local folk, much better than the usual crop of burger bars and coffee houses.

Re: Driving to Scotland - Any Tips?

We do the M6 run up to Scotland every year in one of our Commer campers (usually the Jennings Roadranger) on our way to Moffat from Widnes, quickest rout by far but it is boring. We stop off at Tebay for a break. nice shop that sells fantastic bread :D

I have the same problem. It's such a big heavy lump of a thing it's difficult to get it on with the door shut as you've found out - I've managed to chip the paint on the door a few times :-?
