Re: MA-U-H 180898 engine

Phil When you say the pressed rockers should not be re-bushed, were they bushed originally? I've noticed that my pressed rockers are bushed, but that the oil hole doesn't line up with the hole in the shaft. 20180605_102429.jpg The yellow markers show the oil holes in the shaft, and the white marker ...

Re: Fueling issue

I've "calibrated" my gauge by observing the reading when the tank is empty. Then I put in 2 gallons at a time, and observe where each 1/4 full indicates.

Re: Mmm bit feathered

The camber is bad. I had the same wear on the outside of the tyres. I fixed by shimming the eye bolt away from the frame by the appropriate amount. Check your eye bolt to see if there are shims you can remove. With the weight on the wheels, put a level vertically on the wheel. Try to measure at the ...

Re: Fuel tank how to clean, or is it too far gone?

I've had good luck with a product similar to this one. I don't remember the brand name of the one I used. You can buy the smaller kit for motorcycles which will work fine for the Morris tank. There are you tube's to watch, and the process is a bit tedious, but not difficult. I'm in the US, so look f...

Tire Codes

I replaced the spare from my 60 Traveler. I think it was time. It was a 5.20-14, and looked unused, plenty of tread etc. I found this branded into the sidewall. Old tire data (1).jpg Also, I presume that this code indicates it was manufactured in the 11th week of 1970. Am I correct? Old tire data (2...

Re: Exhaust system recommendations

I had one shipped across the Atlantic for my sedan. Mild steel. I can't get the flare to fit and seal at the manifold. I've tried two different clamps with no luck. This morning I'm off to the auto parts store for some exhaust wrap with which to fashion a gasket of some sort. Next problem is that wh...

Re: moving up to a 1098

Just what I needed. I'm only driving around town in a very flat area, so I'm not worried about the 948 clutch, although I'll look for a 9 spring up until the moment of i installation.
Thanks very large!

moving up to a 1098

I have a 1098 engine available, and my 948 is starting to lose compression. I've scoured the forums searching for compatibility, and here's what I've come away with: If I put my 948 back plate, flywheel and clutch on the 1098, I'll get along fine. I wasn't able to find clear advice on using the 1098...

New Exhaust

I just installed a new exhaust on my sedan. It's the two piece pipe and muffler from a prominent supplier in the UK. I also replaced the insulator above the muffler.
I'm a bit surprised to see about 1.75 inch clearance between muffler and insulator.
Is this as it should be?

Re: Heater specification

That's my only fan, and it puts out a lot of air. I had the whole heater disassembled when I got the car, it having been derelict for 14 years. This car is a 64. My other is a 60, with the round heater and integral fan. I'm curious about how they came to rate the heaters in kW's. That calculation of...

Heater specification

I see two heater specs for the Morris. One is 2.8kW, and the other is 3.something kW. What are they measuring to get that kW spec? 2.8kw is about 3.8hp, or around 200 amps at 12 volts. I think I've attached a picture of the fan I have. It's mounted in the engine compartment, not in the heater itself.

Parking brake or first gear?

I'm starting to think that I am the only one who leaves any car in neutral with the parking brake on. It seems everyone else leaves it in gear with the brake off.
Is there a "proper" way, and what would make it proper?

1960's movie or film

I'm in Florida.
As I was filling up with gas (petrol), a gentleman admiring my 64 Saloon said there was a movie made in the 60's in which there was a town where ALL the cars were Minors.
Does anybody know of such a film? I have to watch it.
