Re: Desperately seeking early Minor window winder

Redback spiders! That's a novel way of guarding the premises! They usually use a mangy old rabid dog over here in UK scrappies :lol:
Well done finding that elusive part though.....

Re: The vicar's car

One is tempted to think that it serves him right for removing the dear old trafficators! Whatever was he thinking of? :-? He's put awful steel plates over the trafficator slots! The garage chap is trying to convince him to use indicators in conjunction with trafficators. He did what?? That is pract...

Re: HAVING A PROBLEM LOGGING IN?

Ever since I joined this forum I have been able to log in automatically. But now I have to input my name and password every time, even though I tick 'remember me'. Can this be put right again?
Thank you.

Re: Remember the scrappage scheme?

I bet a lot of perfectly decent Minors went down the scrappage scheme route - some people would sell their own grandmothers! :-?

Re: Banjo steering wheel and Traveller duotone trim

I am also rather perplexed by the number of people who post questions here, who are given various suggestions of help, and who then disappear into the ether, neither saying 'thank you', nor reporting back on outcomes. To me it is rude to ask for help, receive it, and then fail to reply in thanks. Th...

Re: tickover

If there is oil in the dashpot, and the timing and mixture are good, the remedy may be as simple as cleaning/replacing the plugs and points - and setting their gaps correctly . A car in need of a service will not perform as efficiently as it should.

Re: Speedo not working

Likely one of the cable connections wasn't snug. By undoing them and replacing correctly, you have got the cable engaging again at both ends. Let's hope it behaves itself now! :wink:

Re: Traveller front seats

I concur with ManyMinors. The 1967 Traveller I had once only had fixed seats. Folding seats were usual on the earlier cars - certainly the 1956 1000 I had, and both the SII's I had, were all equipped with front seats of the folding type. Without seeing this traveller it is hard to know whether the v...

Re: Traveller front seats

Interesting, ManyMinors! And checking their website, Newton Commercial do not appear to offer that colour as standard. Nevertheless, they do say: "We do, however, have a number of other colours which are available to order – please check out our colour swatches section at the bottom of the page to s...

".....but a few years ago in mid summer I came out to my car parked on the drive and found that someone had "wiped" the back window with the business end of a warm pizza for some reason unknown to anyone." .......Possibly even to the person who had decorated your car so creatively :-?

Re: Traveller front seats

Yes, they will be the same. Of course, the actual style/materials used for seats changed over the years but in any given year, the seats would be identical in a traveller and a two-door.

Re: Speedo not working

Yes, likely broken or seized cable. You've had it out before to grease it, so pull it out again to examine the inner cable. And yes, check the connections at either end are firm.

Re: Rear wings

The difference is in the holes for the light fittings. The early 1000's just had tail lamps, because they used trafficators. Later cars (after around 1963, I think) had a much bigger tail lamp/indicator fitting. Over the years, a number of these earlier cars have had wings replaced with the later on...

Re: Is it just me or does it happen to you?

We had a similar discussion a couple of years ago, started as a result of a complete idiot flying past me at 50+ miles an hour in a 30mph zone and showering my car with a meteorite shower of chippings! I do believe they just assume an old car is holding them up and they then drive aggressively - cut...
