Re: White Wall Tyres

Indeed - I tried two 'official' tyre paints that proved to be a waste of money and then had a brainwave and bought in from eBay a good quantity of 'Tippex' typewriting correction fluid that was much better and did work tolerably well but, like the others, succumbed in due course.

Re: White Wall Tyres

Tried that (on an Ariel Leader) - the paint just cracks and falls off.

Re: Clonk

I only did a rather cursory visual check of the bushes so it could be a possibility I suppose but, if that were the case, wouldn't there be repetitive clonking as I drive along - especially over rough road surfaces?

Re: Clonk

Thanks for the tip Paul - it had occurred to me that it might be brakes sticking on but, as I say, it definitely appears to come from front nearside so it seems rather unlikely; also, when I jacked it up to pull the wheel off, I did spin the wheel first and it turned easily.

Clonk

Recently I have become aware of a rather disturbing new noise emitted by my moggie. As soon as I drive off after the car has been standing unused for a day or two there's a pretty loud 'clonk' from somewhere around the nearside front wheel but, after that, no further 'clonking'. A short while ago I ...

Re: get you home bodges

Many years ago I read of some optimist who took his Reliant van to trade in against another vehicle. The salesman thought it looked a bit low on the back end so took a closer look. Turned out that damage caused by a rear-end shunt had been repaired not with fibreglass but with concrete.

Re: Musical propshaft. Other parts?

The Morris 1000, introduced in 1956 was, I understand, version number three of the car so, in musical terms, I suppose it could be referred to as a minor third. 8)

Re: Morris Minor Music

As regards the best sort of music to play in a Moggie, I honestly believe that anything is suitable, provided it's in a minor key. 8)

A303:Highway to the sun

Just a quick heads-up - the very informative and entertaining 'A303:Highway to the sun', first shown in 2011, is available for the next 29 days on BBC iPlayer. As the title suggests, it's a trip along the eponymous A303 but, best of all, the presenter, Tom Fort, is driving a very tidy-looking Morris...
