Out of interest is there an easy way to check the aliment and castor angle of the front wheels? All the garages i've taken it to wont even check them. i have new nangkag things as they were the cheapest, why pay big money when your limited to 3000 miles a year? No complents so far.

Brill isnt it just to show off to those around you if they still havent noticed that you own a minor! A friend of mine has a split screen traveller and every time you change gear it does it also going down hills with your foot of the accelerator is brillant, more noise in the traveller!!

the darker shade is the earlier shade, Ive been trying to match the later shade, as said the blue is hard to match there is a rover blue which is close but still not right.

well lucky devil! Yeah lottery numbers good, lots of money better. Could do with some luck at present. Minor failed MOT on brake imbalance then retested and passed! An extra £18.50 to restest it, 5minutes and they get £18.50! not a bad return. Do you guys have a brake balance check in England? SHoul...

Are you on about the engine number? 10V just means 1098cc inline. The engine numbers changed format at about 1970.

Yes good luck. As to the engine numbers after 1969 the engine codes changed as you say to 10V.... it just means 1098cc V means inline. Same engine as the rest of the 1098s just simplified the engine numbers.

yeh had planned on that. I was gonna cut out any rust and repaint but for some reason none of the paint suppliers seem to realise that trafalgar blue paint changed shade to lighter in 1968 but still used to same paint code. So I ask for blue apint I get the darker stuff!!

Yep the only different in front seats is the adjustment for the drivers side, other wise there all the same. Back seats are not especially traveller and saloon. 4 doors and two doors rear seats (the bit you sit on anyway) is slighltly different. For cleaning seats and door pannels some vanish scrubb...

for easy to reach places, try using one of those bottles for cleaning windows or spraying plants. it works as long as you keep it hot., but for box sections (the places that matter) something with a bit of kick is what you want.

yeah, the most common question we get is does it still have those stick out indicators? (trafficators). One day I will be able to say yes, instead of explaining the entire morris history to them. the last time a guy a petrol station kept me there for 45mins!!! I only wanted £5 worth!!
