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...

Re: New wiring harness

The fact the original wiring harness has been on your car for years doesn't necessarily mean its goosed, as mentioned it is more than likely a loose earth or bad connection, my post was to say how I intend to replace my harness.
Let us know what the RAC says.

Re: Wheel alignment

Have you run your hand both ways across the thread and both ways along its circumference? It just looks odd to me.

Re: New wiring harness

Hi I too am considering a replacement wiring harness and have looked at various ways to fit it. The general consensus is the Morris Minor wiring harness is fairly straightforward, Google a view of an extended wiring harness and you can see how simple it is. The way I'm going about it as follows: My ...

Re: Wheel alignment

your nearside tyre looks to be feathered, or is it just the angle of the camera?

Re: British Racing Green ?

The photographs are simply showing different vehicles painted in different colours, the chart in the link at the top of the photographs shows what was available from BMC.

Re: adjusting brakes

Have you bled the system since fitting the new shoes?
It could be the cylinders have not opened fully, I would make sure all the air is bled.
I have never had to resort to hammering my drums back on to any of my cars, some are tight but once on seem to rotate without issue.

Thanks but I want to know if it was still yellow with the black engines installed in late Travellers.
Within the thread someone mentions the fans were painted yellow as a safety thing from around the late 50's

Re: Dead Eletrics

I have had a similar issue with the indicators on my 65. When I activated the indicators they would flash initially then hold a solid light until turned off, then they stayed constant, I noticed the light on the stalk was on one night when going into the garage in the dark, I replaced the flasher un...

Start and finish with the premise - keep it simple.
Modifications and alterations to the standard set up are more difficult to fix out on the road especially if you are miles from anywhere.
I fully agree with your comments, I was just testing the water.
