Re: trafficator switch/steering wheel

Can't help with the electrical side, but I refurbished my steering wheel myself. I bought a cheap one from ebay, rubbed it down filling any stress cracks and sprayed it gloss black with a rattle can. Then several coats of clear lacquer gave it a deep gloss shine! This is the two spoke tho', is yours...

Re: Gan Canny pet

This would be 1968 or after as the reflective plate, as on the traveller was optional from then and compulsory five years later.

Re: Wiper arm "fins"

Two things I bought for my Viva in my youth; a gear lever extension which increased the length by two inches, and a device which attached to the heater hose in the engine to give "hot" water when using the screen wash. Both a waste of money. And did those plastic rear "demist" panels actually work?

Re: Morris Minor

Good for you! I know exactly how you feel! Just out of curiosity, and without being rude, are you at an age where you remember the Morris Minor on the road, or are you a late convert? My own situation is I remember Morris's when they were every-day transport for many. Happy Minoring!

Thanks for this ManyMinors. The steering wheel on the car at the moment is off centre and has always bugged me! Also, valuable safety advice there so many thanks for this. :D

Steering Wheel (again!)

Hello. I've re-furbished a steering wheel for my 1967 four door saloon and now wish to replace the one on the car with it. On removing the horn push, I'm faced with a shaft and spring held on with a circlip, obviously part of the horn mechanism. My question is, do I need a deep socket to remove the ...

Light Bulb.

Any electricians on here? My daughter has a bedside lamp shaped like an old fashioned film camera and made of metal. The label on the shade says the golf ball bulb is to be a maximum of 25w, however, I can only source a 28w bulb. Would this be ok to use?
Thanks.

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

I don't think this is restricted to Morris Minors or any old car; just something that stands out from the "normal" euro-boxes. The boss I worked for some years ago had two Rolls-Royces and I often had to run errands driving one. I always found other drivers to be intimidating especially pulling up t...

Thanks for this ManyMinors. It's a while since I bought a battery for any car let alone a classic. I need to bring myself up to speed so I will look at the thread you suggested. Thanks again.

Battery

Sorry for being so lazy! Where's the best place to source a battery for the Minor? Only Moss out of the Big Three seem to sell them online.
Thanks.

Jump Starter.

Does anyone have a Jump Starter as I am thinking of spending my Christmas money on one? Obviously it will need to be used on the Morris and also for my everyday car (two litre petrol) should the need arise. Do they work? Are they worth having, and which brand do I go for? Sorry for "twenty questions...

It certainly is their problem. I am in a British car, on a British street flying the flag for BRITAIN. And proud of it!
