Re: Ducellier Distributor

Nothing wrong with a Ducellier distributer. Used on lots of continental cars with no problems.
Shame to scrap it when the spares are available.

Re: Prop shaft turning when in neutral

Nothing to do with the clutch. Transmission drag is the cause of the wheels rotating especially when there is no resistance further down the transmission i.e. rear brakes not applied. Having the wheel rotate is quite normal when the rear of the car is off the ground and the brakes not applied. So no...

Re: T9 clutch disc

The T9 release bearing is concentric whether it is hydraulic operated or not as the release bearing is kept central to the clutch/first motion shaft by the release bearing tube which is bolted to the front face of the Ford gearbox. Whilst the hydraulic concentric release bearing is nice to have it i...

Re: Disc brakes

The calliper pistons do seize in the calliper and if the pistons are chromed the chrome can flake causing the seal to fail even with original factory fitted pistons. Fit stainless steel calliper pistons and good quality seals and you will have no problems. Stainless steel pistons can be obtained fro...

Re: petrol tank sealer

I am of the opinion that you would not be able to splash the sealer around the tank without it getting onto the pickup filter. It is about time that the Morris Minor fuel tank manufactures incorporated the ability to remove the pickup pipe and filter from the tank. I have included below a link to th...

Re: petrol tank sealer

Just been reading an article relating to petrol tanks, sealers and ethanol.
Make sure that whatever sealer you use it is not effected by ethanol.

Re: Side-valve valve inserts

You are wise to stop cutting away the block. Any good machine shop will be able to source and fit valve seats to this engine. Whilst the engine is in pieces I would have all four exhaust valve seats fitted with hardened inserts. If you have any doubts speak with Rob Thomas who can be contacted via a...

Re: BTDC for 123 ignition, 1275 engine

Thank you for posting the picture above relating to the timing marks. The location of the MG Midget timing marks is different to the Minor. The large pointer which appears to be painted white is TDC. The other pointers before the TDC pointer are set at 4 degree intervals (going anti-clockwise) are 4...
