Re: Number plate recommendations?

I used Numberplates-4-u to get replacement pressed plates (for my 1955 saloon) - the website is at http://www.numberplates-4-u.co.uk/ He produced the correct shaped rear boot-lid plate, with radiused corners and used the 3 1/2" high pre-1963 digits. He will require sight of your V5. 2015 prices were...

Re: Ignition and Light Switch problems

Got my M10 fine die yesterday and tried it on the switch - not a lot of room with the die held in a holder, but managed to get a half turn, which was enough to start off the lock ring.
Light switch now fitted back in the dash panel - all good thanks.
George.

Re: Signature File Attachments

No, the filename is not complete. It should have the fuller location string, something like www.mmoc.org.uk/Messageboard/download/file.php?id=13496 but prefixed with the square bracketed "img" and terminated with the square bracketed "/img" Also, just in front of the "www" there should be a "http://...

Re: Signature File Attachments

You're very lucky I gave up trying months ago. If you mean getting a signature picture in then do this - (1) Post to this thread, put a few words in and then scroll down to get to "Options and "Attachments". (2) Click on "Attachments" and a button pops up with "Add files" (3) Click on that button a...

Re: Dynamo Testing - what am I doing wrong?

Folks, Please note that I have posted many "how to" posts with copious images over the years that I have been a member. I don't just ask for help, but offer solutions too. It is a great shame that the MMOC's change of websites did not include a move of all the valuable archive photographs linked to ...

Re: Dynamo Testing - what am I doing wrong?

ERRATA - the C40 dynamo was producing the 14.6v DC, the C39 and now the 2nd C39 are the ones that produce 18-19v DC. I never was very good in the heat and today is far too hot for me - better not work under the low-light's bonnet today until the sun moves round the back (car is on the open drive), a...

Re: Dynamo Testing - what am I doing wrong?

I re-flashed one C39 and one C40. My battery drill was running down so I swapped batteries, but this only brought the voltage up slightly - I was using this drill as it has variable speed on the trigger. Then I remembered I had an old mains B&D drill with 2 speeds (Low and High) but no trigger speed...

Re: Dynamo Testing - what am I doing wrong?

I always thought that field winding flashing was to change the polarity of the Dynamo.
These are already +ve earth - otherwise the meter would have been showing a negative reading, but I will re-flash them and try again.
Thanks,
George.

Dynamo Testing - what am I doing wrong?

Colleagues, My project car (1950 low-light) has a C40 dynamo that has stopped showing any output. I tested it on the vehicle and less than 1v showing. I have 3 old spares, 2 x C39 and 1 x C40, so I thought I would get one, or more, of those up and running and do a swap out. I have followed the sugge...

Ignition and Light Switch problems

I'm getting a bit downhearted with my Low-light project as I keep finding more things that were botched. The ignition switch wasn't bolted in and I found out after a while, why not - it needed to be turned upside-down to work the key at times! IMG_20200510_164426.jpg It can't be mounted upside down ...

Re: Dymano Mounting bracket width discrepancy

So were earlier engines fitted with different sized dynamo mounting? 8mm is quite a difference. Phil, I too have noticed discrepancies in the mounts of the A-series engines. I also remember, years ago (probably not a Morris) of having a C39/40 dynamo with a built-in extension tube! Looks like I'll h...

and it has the original dynamo with the rad fan mount on the end.
Only the low-light mount is the wrong size.

Dymano Mounting bracket width discrepancy

Colleagues, I've been having some problems, as some of you may know, with my Low-Light 1950 project. When refitting the C40 dynamo, that came with the car, I had to add about 4/5 washers to take up the gap. C39 and C40 dynamos should be 145mm (approx) between the mounting plate holes. I have checked...
