I know this will upset the purists, but... I used my Traveller for 40 years and was fed up with chasing side window leaks so about 15 years ago I had a pair of one piece windows made and now I have perfectly sealed windows with no leaking. I do not miss the sliding widows as they were always stickin...
Hi Mary (you helped me register my Minor here). Thank you for your concern. I understand that this fuel may have an adverse reaction to plastics and rubber. The only parts that may be affected are the fuel sender, fuel pump diaphragm, pump to carb hose and the carb float. Mine are so old the will ne...
I read these comments with interest. We have lived in France for nine years now. We run a Hyundai Kona that runs very well on E10. I have used my 1969 Traveller almost daily since I bought her in 1979. I have been using 95 sans plomb all this time. I use her as often as I can, but like me, she is re...
I fitted Owen Burton ford based disks in the 1990's. Vast improvement. I used my Traveller every day for work and I still have not needed new pads. Neither do I have a servo. My view is that servos do little to help on a minor and I can do without the added complexity. I feel a lot safer with the di...
Tricky one. You could (might) get away with just changing the boot, but the master cylinder will have to come out to change it I think. As you have done the wheel cylinders and the master is an unknown quality I would err on the side of caution and renew that as well. Taking it out is quite a strugg...

It does look like blue coolant dripping down. You say your not loosing any, but over a long period a little weeping may not be noticed by looking in the radiator. Or it could be remnants of a gasket sealant. If the engine is running OK then I would not be worried.

Hi. I replaced mine a long time ago. Start at the back for the rear pieces. Note how they are attached to the roof struts. Once that is off undo the wire that runs from the front parcel shelf through the window pillar. Tie a long length of strong string to the end to help you pull it back when you r...

I used to test how well my Traveller was tuned by driving down the Bradford on Avon hill. If it Parped loudly all the way down to the town bridge the engine was in fine fettle, but if there was no Parp I knew it was time for a service. I am curious to know what part of the service it was that resto...
