Re: Traveller Stormforce All weather cover

you know what, looks like you need it more than I do. fill your boots. That's not a very nice comment (and I did supply my name, unlike you). My current Stormforce 4-ply cover has come to end-of-life and my Split-screen Traveller is now getting tree sap on it. The OP isn't responding to recent mess...

Hello Rustysmum,
Is the Traveller cover still available?

I went to the Hanworth Classic in Bushy Park today (Opposite Hampton Court Palace, Surrey) and spotted a split screen pick up. reg was 4 digits. I'd never personally seen one before in 30 years of owning classic cars.
Did you, by any chance, take any pictures? George.

Re: Spotted today.

Aha - I didn't notice that! Yes, indeed, the bonnet does look "short", but the windscreen still has a dummy "fake" centre strut (seen this before on an eBay offering).

Re: Spotted today.

thanks. I did know that splitty travellers had the shorter bonnet? No they didn't - I think that your post has a typo, given the question mark at the end of the statement. The Short Bonnet was only on Side-valve engined cars and the Traveller (Utility Vehicle) wasn't introduced until the merger wit...

Re: UFN 456 Electrics

Bought a voltage/current regulator from Bryan (private purchase, not from club spares). Finally put it into circuit and the power wires now have just over 12V - the original fitted one was cooking one of the coils, as it turns out. The indicators now work and I'll be able to refit the wiper motor. T...

Re: Clutch Pedal Return Spring

Drove the car up and down the cul-de-sac I live in, for a short road test and the return spring definitely needed to be connected.
Found the hole it goes into at the side of the R/H chassis leg.

Re: Oil leak from Side-valve oil filter mounting

Thicker paper gasket hasn't stopped the dribble leak - I even used a scraper on the mounting point surface to make sure that there were no leftover bits of previous gaskets. Interestingly, there is a small hole in the mounting surface, that doesn't have a corresponding hole in the Purolator head fit...

Re: Oil leak from Side-valve oil filter mounting

Got the engine fired up again, but the thin paper oil gasket is leaking. I will try the next thickness up.
I still haven't had a chance to look at the HOF250 filters.

Clutch Pedal Return Spring

How is this connected and which anchorage points should it be using?
This is a Side-Valve engine and Gearbox, converted from LHD to RHD.

Re: Oil leak from Side-valve oil filter mounting

Hello Rob, I still haven't found a suitable sized spin-on filter (length), but will go look at the HOF250 one that you mention.
At the moment, I'm using the original Purulator unit. George.

Re: Sloppy brake & clutch pedal shaft

Thanks Phil. I ended up doing the sequence I had written about as a possibility. Had to get the M/C loose again, but first undid the banjo bolt. Screwed the banjo through bolt onto the brake pipe union and it went in nicely, so not belled. Left it done up only a few turns so the pair could rotate ar...

Re: Sloppy brake & clutch pedal shaft

I've now got another problem - I can't refit the brake pipe union into the Banjo Bolt retaining bolt IMG_20190602_155221.jpg I've even tried with holding the pipe up with a pair of wire cutters (cross-jaw type to hold up the pipe). I just cannot get the correct angle to screw the union nut back in :...

Re: Sloppy brake & clutch pedal shaft

Phil, I used a bolt, large washers and a nut to pull the bronze bush it (then tried with the new Clutch pedal and it goes in, but a little "tight". I have got the Master Cylinder out, having got info via another thread. I used the suggestion of having a stout piece of wood resting on an axle stand a...

Re: Oil leak from Side-valve oil filter mounting

Phil,
I have now replaced the cork gasket with the thin paper one.
Won't know if this will seal better until I fire up the engine, but the car is on axle stands and engine is in gear whilst I work on the pedals and master cylinder (another thread).

Re: What has happened to all the old website technical instructions?

The photo of the method of prising the torsion bar downwards is very helpful - I did not find this in all the posts that came up with my original search query. Many thanks, has given me some ideas but, as you say, what happened to the original store of Technical Tips we used to have, like polarizing...

What has happened to all the old website technical instructions?

I've been try to get hold of MMOC instructions on how to do things the "easy way", but it looks like these were never migrated (just like the photos in the old posts) to the new website. What I want was originally referenced by this article, which now throws up an error. http://www.mmoc.org.uk/index...

Re: Sloppy brake & clutch pedal shaft

I'm back! I ordered the bits I needed, which arrived on Saturday. Today I resumed work on the car. Decided to do a test of the Master Brake Cylinder - topped it up, placed the original push-rod with yoke into it, did a bit of pumping, producing a few air bubbles and what looked like a wisp of smoke!...

I've got a "parts required" spreadsheet and the bushes, new pedal, yoke and brake pedal cylinder actuating rod are in the list, from ESM, together with a few other items totalling in excess of the min (pre vat) price for free delivery. Will be placing the order when I get home on Thursday. Moss, unf...
