Pancake filter advice

I have a chrome pancake type air filter fitted to my 1098 Moggie and I wonder what fellow owners think of these in comparison to the standard set up?
Any experiences would be appreciated as I find I do get an occasional misfire when accelerating, usually when the car is warm.

Re: Not what they used to be!

I used to visit a scrapyard in Hockley Heath which was a good old fashioned place, I climbed 2 cars to remove a pair of front wings for my 1st car a Renault 4, at the same time filling my toolbox with switches and fixings!

Re: Steel or fibreglass

Thanks for the replies guys. As I had already purchased fibreglass I was having a wee touch of the collywobbles.but feel a lot better now!

Re: get you home bodges

I gave up with my heater valve and fitted the brass tap used on earlier models instead. No problem since :) .
You would think that a replacement valve could be made to a decent standard though wouldn't you :-?

I did exactly the same on my Convertible as 2 previous heater valves leaked :x

Re: Traveller wood frame.

Before I replaced my wood earlier this year someone suggested that I buy the Morris minor traveller book written by Ray Newell. It was invaluable to me and gives step by step aswell as tips of replacing the wood frame. A godsend to me.

Re: Interior colour change

Great points by manyminors, I sold one of my old minors some years ago to a student and the car was spot on. After 2 weeks I received a letter with a long list of faults which were more characteristics of these cars or..poor brakes. When I replied to the list there was nothing out of the ordinary so...

Re: get you home bodges

My bodges that come to mind are a Rover 800 drivers wiper arm snapped off so I swapped the smaller passenger side one to get me from Torquay to home. A mk1 Ford escort exhaust silencer mounting snapping so I used my belt to tie it up..ruined when I got home! The loss of coolant in my old Moggie whic...

Re: New presenters on Top Gear

Ive really enjoyed the new series and I think the 3 new presenters are a good mix.
I would like a classic car road test section though.
