Re: Two-door passenger lock removal puzzle

Im fairly certain that the wishbone type is fitted to doors with no external lock and the pin type to later locks with a key on the outside.

I know I had great trouble finding a replacement of the early types after putting the original away so safely that Ive still never found it.... :-?

Re: MVA Rally

Agreed, it was an excellent weekend. I was supposed to be going in a Morris 10/4 series 11 but we didnt get all the jobs sorted in time and went in a minor!

Re: Two-door passenger lock removal puzzle

The pin should push in and the lever should slide out, as Marks says a small screwdriver or similar should do to push it in.

Re: MMOC National Rally 2017

I did 635 miles round trip in the traveller and camped all weekend. As already said a good event, shame it was much smaller than other years but still good to catch up with all the old friends!

Been told at the AGM its Kelmarsh next year so much more central

Re: MMOC National Rally 2017

Im coming along with a few others from Northern Ireland, not so many cars travelling from here this time but I wouldnt miss it! Ive been every year since Donnington and a few other before that as well. Im hoping for a great turn out and perhaps some different cars that dont like driving too far!

Re: Help needed with seized nuts...

Use a couple of vise grips or clamps to help hold the bracket to the body while you are working on the nut. Have you tried to tighten it a little to see if it will move at all? If the brake pipe was out of the way a socket would fit on.

Good luck!

Re: 1956 s11 traveller restoration

So it was decided that the bores were a bit too worn to ignore. I decided to use the low mileage engine Ive had tucked away at the back of the garage for several years! Before fitting Stevey and I removed the sump and cleaned it out, along with the oil strainer. Also took off the centre main cap and...

Re: MM Boot hinges

I think the latest Ive seen the thin hinges fitted too was 1964, 2 of my duo tone cars have had them fitted also. It makes you wonder why they are so hard to find! I have a NOS pair tucked away for my MM when it eventually gets the paint sorted 8)

I sourced a set of genuine Lockheed seals and its been in place now with no issues for several years. If you are having doubts change them now whilst its out on the bench, rather than g...
