timing chain queerie

My Morris convertible 1098 engine is due for a timing chain replacement as it is rattling and I wonder...
Is it a easy enough job to do with any tips and should I replace the sprockets as a kit or chain on its own?
many thanks

Re: Rust-proofing: Dinitrol or Dynax?

I did my car with Dynax S50 and used a sealey SG18 gun to apply it. Like most of these products it is fairly thick like treacle and will not spray very well if at all when it is cold, my solution was to have a bucket of very hot water and stand the 5 litre container of S50 in it for a while to warm...

Water leaks

My traveller leaks water in on the left hand side into the passenger rear footwell and I have traced it as running along the bottom window sliding channel. I have checked the drain holes are not blocked and wonder if anybody has experienced this problem please? It is as though the chanel is acting a...

Dehumidifiers?

My Morris minor lives on my drive at tiimes and I get damp/condernsation inside the vehicle at this time of year and wonder if anybody has tried a dehumidifier or any other gadget to help the overnight damp please?

Re: Spare tyre/wheel-does anyone not carry one?

I have bigger banded wheels on my Minors and have a standard size wheel as a spare to get me home. In the family modern Vauxhall Mokka,we had a can of weld but soon swapped it for a proper spare as Ive seen so many tyres scrap at work after the tyre weld has been used or not worked enough to inflate...

Re: Domes/bulges in the boot floor

Re: signs

I do find driving my Minors at the old speeds they were intended to is more of a relaxing ride,its the other idiots that see an old car and pull out or overtake you that frustrate me. :cry:

Re: NOVEMBER/DECEMBER Minor Matters ??

My post is taking days to get to me and when I spoke to my lovely postman he was telling me about the extra duties that he also has now with collecting parcels,to compete with the likes of Hermes etc.
They are expected to carry out these duties at no extra pay and inline with their other duties :(
