Re: Mr Grumpy Brake Disc Kit

The qty 8.......3/8" plain washers go between the back of the swivel & the nyloc nuts fitted to the reduced thickness head bolts that attach the caliper mounting bracket to the swivel. The reduced thickness bolt heads are required to allow clearance between hub and bolt head. http://www.morrisminor...

Re: Lower trunnion thrust washers

Thanks everybody for the explanation.

I failed my MOT with a "clunk" from the suspension, hence the complete rebuild. I am beginning to think that it was the clunk behind the steering wheel!

Lower trunnion thrust washers

Re 1098 MM. The lower trunnions have two thrust washers with a chamfered face. Does the chamfered side go towards the trunnion or outwards suspension arms?

Morris 1000 body shell

Are there any body shell changes for the 2 door saloon between a 1957 948cc and a 1968 1098cc apart from the trafficator mountings?

Were the doors made of thinner metal in 1968?

Thanks
