Re: Front brakes seizing after a short drive.

First check is that the master cylinder is adjusted correctly, check the manual for the correct setting.
I think it should be 3/4" free play at the pedal.

Re: A bit cheeky

Re: Front brake shoe steady springs.

Don't adjust anything until you get a good firm pedal, start bleeding at the front offside and go around anti clockwise first, the problem is air in the system. Once you start to get a firm pedal bleeding the brakes as per the manual will be sufficient. Do you have a helper? I find pumping the pedal...

Re: Condenser problem

Here is a good write up on why they fail, http://nonlintec.com/sprite/cap_failure/
It would appear that the main reasons for failure are manufacturers skimping on the internal components.

Re: Doris cuts out

As others have suggested you need to ensure you have a clean fuel supply, this means not fitting filters to cure the problem. You need to blow the fuel lines out and disconnect and remove the fuel tank and clean it out and then if faults are still present, eliminate them one by one. There is a way t...

Re: Indicators

Major work could mean welding, the flasher relay could have been affected.
Remove the connections to the relay and connect them all together then operate the indicators. If they operate as they should without flashing then it's the relay at fault.

Re: New member...

Sounds like it has brought up some debris from the bottom of the tank, start with cleaning the filter in the fuel pump then check the float chamber for any debris.

Re: Wheel alignment

Here are the settings I copied from a post from Islip Minor on a old thread a couple of years ago. The settings that you need for a standard Minor are: Toe-in 3/32 inch OR 2.4 – 2.5 mm OR 0.8 degrees For an initial setup disconnect the track rod ends from the rack, centre the rack, remove the column...
