Re: Hot starter motor

Hijacking this post slightly, my starter has always been prone to jamming once in a while. Traveller with 1275 engine and Ford 5 speed box.
Easy to solve by rocking in gear or freeing of with a spanner but it’s always puzzled me. Never happened on my saloon...

Re: Aerofan (technical tips section of magazine)

I don’t really think that a Minor needs any enhanced cooling or improvement. Works just fine as it is :D

Re: What is it?

I found that raking it out was the only natural way to control duckweed. Important to leave it at the side of the pond for a while so that creatures can escape back into the water. I had some success controlling blanketweed by placing a small bound bundle of barley straw into the pond. I think that ...

Could you put a picture up? That would help.

One thing that I’ve learned in my moderately long life is never get into an argument about politics, religion or,most importantly, cats versus dogs 🐕.

Re: Old Nottingham Images

To be fair, Nottingham took more care of its heritage than most cities. It’s still a handsome place.
By contrast Derby destroyed most of its finest buildings back in the ‘60s to build a road. :evil:

Re: New member saying "Hello"

There’s a lot of ex-bobbys interested in, and running Minors :wink:
Saw a clip on the tv recently of some low life in a stolen Minor giving the police a problem... West Yorkshire I think?

Re: Authenticity of Vehicles

As years go on, it becomes increasingly difficult to confirm originality/authenticity. Over the past 50+ years generations of people have done work to these cars, some good and some not so good. In the absence of definitive information I think the best course is to ensure that a car is sound and hon...

Re: Wiring trafficators and indicator lights

I suggest that you get the flashers and trafficators to work separately.
Put the trafficators on a classic teardrop switch, so you can use them for fun,shows etc.
When they are wired to work together they are very prone to get snapped off!! Ask me how I know :wink:

Re: Flasher Unit again

I have a couple of minor flasher cans in my spares box and one is larger than the other! The larger one appears to be more substantially made.
Maybe from a different tin hut in a faraway place 😀
