Re: Brake conversion

I put Wolseley's on my traveller - dead easy, brilliant brakes with the added bonus that the back plate stops the king pin dropping off if it fails! Haha! As you say, rare as hen's teeth but I know that Richard at Minorparts of Oxford was advertising a set at a very reasonable price the other day. R...

Re: SU fuel pump not pumping fuel

I've had the pick up pie in the tank blocked before. Blew an air line down from the pump end and cleared it that way.

Re: Seat to steering wheel dimension

You'll probably find that the longer you own the car, and the older you get, the steering wheel will mysteriously move back towards the seat thus making the whole thing a snugger fit. A bit like trousers that hang in the wardrobe for a while shrink - the only remedy being the next waist size up! Enj...

Did I read somewhere that the first time you had to tax at a Post Office and that you couldn't declare it on line?

I can most definitely recommend Bridgestone 145's - IMHP best by far for a Minor :D

Re: maniflow exhausts

As per some replies above....I modified my original manifold with judicious use of the angle grinder and thin cutting disc. Fitted a HiF38 onto a separate Holley inlet manifold. Standard 1098. Made a noticeable improvement in overall 'drivability' and all worked beautifully.

Re: Solenoid?

You need to check there is power on the small leads to the solenoid - they are what actuate the coil in it to bridge the heavy leads and energise the starter motor. :D

Re: Reducing noise in a Traveller

I put a piece of about 1" thick heavy black foam rubber all under the rear seat of mine - made a big difference. :D Went all over the UK in him - fine on motorway and everywhere else.

3.9 diff

I have an excellent condition 3.9 differential for sale. I was going to fit it to my traveller but sold the car before getting around to it. It really is in excellent condition. I'd like £250 for it or near offer.

Re: Tyre advice needed

I ran my traveller on 155 Toyo's for several years and they were excellent - until I put 145 Bridgestones on. By far the best for a moggie I think

Re: Cars For Sale section

Nope. Definitely not working properly. When you click on the 'display posts from' button it doesn't matter how long you select, it still only displays the same few that appear when you first go onto that bit of the forum - so something isn't right.
