Re: Spotted today.

The wipers were visibly different as the split screens used a certain type of arm and flat blade which differ considerably from the '1000'.

Re: E10 petrol and valve settings

It's all a money-making con by the controlling few. Ethanol has a lower calorific value and this has been known for a very, very long time. How ethanol is made isn't very environmentally friendly, but it does make a few filthy rich people even richer, which is all that matters.

Re: Advice needed on selling price

If you ever sell the car, the absence of the original seats might be an issue for some people. Why don’t you carefully store them so they can go back in the car in future if needs be.

Don’t know the definitive answer but at a guess it was put there to accommodate heating equipment.

AD details the size of the bores and crankshaft journals. This tells you if they are Standard or otherwise.

That will be an oil filter, fitted as an extra. You will see similar devices on American cars of the same period.

It is original BL. That is a rebuilt engine number under the factory scheme. Any traces of gold or silver paint?

Brakes should indeed be good stoppers, I expect the wheel cylinders are partially seized after standing for 4 years.

Re: 155 70 14 tyres?

Blockley Tyres (better known for their Vintage-era tyres) make 145 tyres specially for the Minor in that they are as tall as permissible. This means the height of the tyre and therefore the gearing is closer to what it should be. (Many radial tyres are much ‘shorter’ than the equivalent cross ply ou...

Re: DIY heatshield

Another point to bear in mind is the engine fan, which has the benefit of shifting air around the engine when sitting in traffic. Worth considering if you run without the engine driven fan and have experienced petrol vaporisation.

Re: Half shaft gaskets

As you are fond of referring to manuals, kindly quote where it says you should use gaskets to account for bearing protrusion.

Re: Rear backplate

The hub nut, with the locking tab, secures the bearing. Are you honestly saying that a thin piece of paper, which doesn't even contact the bearing, is what is meant to clamp it and account for its protrusion? It is there to prevent oil leaks only. I don't know where this idea came from but it is com...

Re: Half shaft gaskets

You do still need the hub gaskets with the 'O' ring hubs. The nip of the bearing in the hub is determined by the thickness of the gasket paper. See various threads regarding how to determine the thickness of the gasket paper required. No it isn't. It is determined by how far the bearing is pressed ...

Re: Rear backplate

Just to round this topic off from me, I changed the damaged backplate today for the good one. My special service tool was deployed in conjunction with the puller, and it worked exactly as I’d expected. Couldn’t have gone any better. https://www.thedarkwob.co.uk/download/file.php?id=28320 https://www...
