Re: Bumper irons steel ferrules

My early car didn't have them fitted when I bought it, not sure if it ever had them fitted though. It still doesn't have them.

Re: Wide rims, Series MM

I tried an Austin Freeway (Australian 6cyl version of your Cambridge?) wheel a while ago, looks similar to yours.

Re: Traveller side window differences between SII & 1000?

Thanks Don. You haven't bought Mr Webb's car yet? I thought he must have parted with it long ago when he disappeared out of the club.
I'll have to bring my windows along to a run where I know there'll be a late Traveller & compare them; the memory bank isn't working well enough these days.

Traveller side window differences between SII & 1000?

I have a late Series II Traveller that is missing a few parts, mainly interior related but I'm also short of one sliding window.
There's a set of sliding windows & other body panels for sale locally (only 2000km away) but they're from a 1000.

Does anyone know if the side windows/catches are the same?

Re: Please what is the meaning of this

#2 is the identification details of the final prototype made before official production started. The first Morris Minor off the line was #501.
The 'EX' indicates that it could well have been re-numbered & sold under a different chassis/body number seeing as it was virtually a production vehicle.

Re: Problem about 1948 rear Lights

Your first post shows the early L482 light & reflector.

Your second post shows a 1949 car with the L488 light.

Re: Luvax front dampers

I salvaged a similar pair off a '49 parts car (the one that went to heaven a few months ago), had them reco'd & fitted to my '48. I've picked up others at swap meets, normally labelled as MG TC dampers.

Re: Smart Phones at the wheel still today!!!

Is it legal in the UK? It's only OK to use hands free in Australia but there's some who want that banned too.
I still see people using them everyday though.

You're right - some rubbing revealed another '2'.

Is that on the tag alongside the BMD one?
If so, 'Z.16316' is embossed, then '582' stamped.

Re: 1952 MM Tourer sedan or is it a Tourer??

I've seen 2 genuine tourers/convertibles in Australia converted to sedans. One was owned by Russell Hooke & looked like a factory conversion/modification. The other was owned by myself but was a rough backyard job that used a 4 door roof. I'm sure the Russell Hooke car was a Series MM. IIRC, he sold...

According to the numbers, it's a late '54 & one of the first 'update' Series II travellers.

Re: Low-light for sale on eBay

The steering wheel appears to be re-rimmed or restored as I haven't come across that colour on a factory wheel. Body colour had no bearing on the wheel colour though.

The ID tag should be screwed on but it's a reproduction plate anyway.

It does look like a very neat car all the same.

Re: Cheesed off.

If you have a resistor coil, they're designed to operate at around 9v so they won't last long with 12v hooked up.
Most cars from the '70s & '80s used these to beef up the spark when starting the engine.

Re: Parking light switch on cars in Western Australia

For some reason, NSW never had that rule but I'm sure Victoria had it.
