Re: Bodywork

Many thanks for the excellent advice! Do you fit the top half of the front cross member before the lower part? Do the holes for the engine mountings help lining up the chassis leg as they bolt right through?
Thanks

Re: Temperature

Hi thanks for the good sound advice! The temp gauge is electrical and I think I fitted an 80 degree thermostat when I rebuilt the engine. What I should have explained was the heater doesn't push out much heat so assumed the temp wasn't where it could be especially when the temp gauge was only just p...

LED indicator bulbs

Hi
I have a 1968 4 door Moggy
I've just read a post about LED bulbs for semaphores, has anyone replaced their indicator bulbs with LED ones? Where can we get them and would you need to change the flasher unit? If so can someone provide a link?

Kind regards

Brakes

Hi, I have a 4 door 1968 Morris minor, and have heard that you can fit a remote mount brake reservoir in the engine bay! Can this be done with a standard brake set up with a standard brake master cylinder? What mods have to be made to the master cylinder to fit the new reservoir? Kind regards Richard
