Re: SU Pancake filter: correct filter?

I have a very similar filter on my traveller and it works well for the last 12 months,however I had the same type of filter on my convertible and I had problems with hesitating and starting. I reverted back to the original as a result and had no further problems...why I dont know??

leaf spring preservation

I wonder if I should be lubricating or greasing my leaf springs on my Minors and if anybody else treats them or just leaves them alone?
I did read about wrapping them by sealing lubricant into the springs which has got me thinking, should I do something with mine.

Ebay fakers

What is it with Ebay these days?....I sell items on their website and I have had about half a dozen or so, odd bids over the last couple of months where a bid is placed and won by the bidder. I send an invoice and hear no more from them. I open a case against the bidder and then I can relist my item...

Woodwork refurb traveller

Just wondering how often it would be recommended to retreat the woodwork on my Morris minor traveller.i replaced the whole frame 12months ago and everything is fine so I would imagine another 12months before I will need to refresh the coat.i used the varnish rather than the oil as a preference. Many...

Re: In these uncertain times...

My convertible doesnt have a pin but has a lip on the back of the handle mounting plate. I have ground that off and the handle does move forward now but still doesnt lock so I guess I will need the handed lever that fits into the outer door handle.

Re: Traveller rear luggage cover

Another option could be a breakers yard as some models have the roller blind covers that you maybe able to adapt one to fit.
Some Skoda estate models, Focus estates maybe?

I was going to upgrade the oil in the damper pots as Ive done in my Convertible so a clean up and overhaul is called for. This is a fabulous "ho...

Rear shock absorber advice

On close inspection of my Traveller rear suspension I have a leak from the rear shock absorbers, I would like to know if there is a kit for overhauling them as I see shock absorbers on ebay listed as refurbished so ideally I would like to do my own.

Re: Traveller leaf springs best place to buy

I should be looking for best quality as I have spent alot to get the car to the present condition and will be keeping my Traveller. It is also intresting to hear about the improved ones rather than the cheaper ones, not being in the know with these springs many thanks.
