Wiring harness/Loom check

Good evening My 1965 2 door Minor "Gracie" is off the road for some much needed body repair work. Tonight I decided to remove the wiring harness to evaluate its condition and generally check it was ok prior to beginning any welding. Well pardon the pun but I was shocked how bad the harness was,it ha...

Found this on facebook has the same area code BJ as mine.
Was there any sign of white paint on the roof of yours?
As mentioned some forces would do anything to save a bit of money hence only the doors being white.

Re: 1968 Police Morris Minor

There is a specialist register for these and they may able to assist re livery. Almost every force was different and many (most) had no roof lights and very few had blue lights http://www.expolice.mmoc.org.uk Murray Minor, I was some (many) years ahead of you and in the MPS but was it not 'appointm...

Re: 1968 Police Morris Minor

This shot was of the Stockport Police back in the late 50's, I wondered of the cars were destined for use at Ringway Airport, now Manchester International Airport. Interesting theory, I doubt it, but anything is possible as it was a time of experimentation. The reason I doubt it is the markings are...

On a similar theme, has anyone seen this police livery?

Re: 1968 Police Morris Minor

What a fantastic photograph! Seems like another world........ I had the very same conversation with my Sgt this morning, I have only been in the force for 24 years but when I joined there was no internet and we had to "parade on with our accompaniments" which were basically everything we would carr...

Re: A little shocked

Look how much the price of classic vehicles in general have risen in the last five years. I'm glad I managed to secure a Morris Minor before they are out of my price range. I see very rusty shells with rotten interiors and seized engines changing hands for hundreds of pounds. A decent 1275 engine is...

With the seat brackets in their rearmost pair of holes I still find the driving position a bit cramped so had these extensions made.20190804_091411.jpg20190804_140709.jpg

One day enroute to work it began to overheat,I realised the head gasket had blown,so I topped up the water using the washer bottle and the contents of my mates flask of tea. We managed to get to work a...

Re: Redex or catalyst balls for fuel??

I believe there was a lot of testing of these balls and inline catalyst things in the past and they were found not to have changed anything in relation to valve seat damage. I used to run a 1380 mini on shell V power and that was thrashed to within an inch of its life whilst competing and I never us...

Re: Riley 1.5 front wheel cylinders

Hi
Forgive me but what difference would these make to a standard brake set up?
I was thinking of fitting a remote servo and retaining my original drums, would this be a step up from the original without the servo?

Re: Wheel alignment

I have looked at the pictures again and I think I can see the problem beginning on the nearside tyre as well. If you look at the outside edge of the nearside tyre it has scrubbed slightly. I would get your toe in/out checked before you waste money on tyres which may be damaged as a result of incorre...
