Re: E-bay Scammers

I got a sore foot tripping over a dismantled table - why? Because I dismantled it in preparation for the new eBay buyer who turned out to be a hacked account :-( As to scam adverts if in your browser you enlarge the image gallery on eBay and either right click copy (image) location/link or left clic...

Re: Morris Minor Specialists

Exactly so, which is why I think we need to create a directory of sorts. One of the local branches I once contacted did have a list of garages though they weren't recommended garages, just local ones in the area that may be okay to use. Sadly their main recommendation was a garage that I had alread...

Re: Clip on door mirrors

I bought a pair of the mirrors in the first post for my Minor. They were sold as fitting on the quarter lights and try as I might they never did. Thanks to your initial photo now I see where they were actually meant to fit. In the end I cannibalised my old broken rectangular quarterlight mirrors wit...

Re: Speed Limiters

In particular, many cars already have a forward-facing camera, but there is a question mark over whether the sign-recognition technology is up to scratch. I saw a video recently on YouTube of someone driving a modern (2018/19) car with a system that warned them what the speed limit was by reading t...

Re: Rocker cover labels - rivet or stick?

It could have when the 1098cc engine came into use as I know cars from 1964 ish have the stick on labels. I was out under the bonnet of both our cars earlier so out of interest I had a look at the labels and both our August (948) and post-October (1098) '63 cars appear to have the rivet style of la...

Re: Correct washer pump?

Thanks for the response again. The pump I have is the small stubby silver one which I gather from information I found online is Tudor because on the back plastic (where the nozzles are) has 'Made in England' stamped on it which differentiates it from the Lucas style you buy as replacements these day...

Re: Correct washer pump?

No correct type for a '63 if it's got the earlier type pull switches and pull starter. On these, washers were still a dealer or retro-fit accessory, such as the ones you name. Thanks for the response. I just wanted to check your reply is correct for the Deluxe cars we own though because, according ...

Correct washer pump?

Hi, I was wondering if there was any correct washer pump style for the '63 deluxe Minor? I'm asking because we have two '63 cars one early (quite original) and one late (not so original) and while the early one has a Wingard pump the other has a Tudor so I wondered if this was the norm (any pump out...

For the sort of money he wants for this I would want it 100% complete and not 95%.....and even then, I would have to be desperate to get rid of £20k. It also states that it is being sold on a 'no reserve' basis but the reserve has not been met yet???!! I see looking online they bought it originally...

Re: Stolen EBAY UK

Since the forums are running off phpBB, wouldn't it be just as easy to add such things as custom non-required profile fields for people to fill out as they saw fit? (and is there a risk making such info be public?).

Morris Minor Detachable Tow Bar, AL-KO Tow Ball incl. cover And Electric Relay Kit.

Hi, I figured I'd put this up here over the weekend before putting it on eBay. I actually bought the tow bar a few years ago on eBay, however various events (culminating in my Minor getting rear ended) have resulted in my never fitting it. During the time of not getting it fitted I also bought a pro...

I don't know if they post letters but you might also try a letter to a magazine such as Practical Classics or one of the other car magazines out there since it's possible that you might catch the eyes of an old mechanic or customer who might not be an MMOC member but may be able to give you more inf...

Re: Heater

When I saw the seller I wasn't overly surprised.

We've actually bought some things from them in the past (all good, no complaints), and even at the time I tried to get them to lower their price because I felt they were a bit on the high side.

They wouldn't budge though :wink:

Re: Equivilent liquid to add to the interiors factory sound proofing?

I forgot to ask:

Do you have a recommendation for which stone chip paint to use since there are so many brands to choose from and ideally a brushable variety would be best.

Thanks.

Re: Equivilent liquid to add to the interiors factory sound proofing?

Hi,
Thanks for the replies.

I can't believe I forgot about the existence of stone chip paint. I think that would be perfect.

I admit the depth was a guess from looking at it, now on actually measuring it I see it is indeed around 2mm. Somehow it looked so much deeper.
