Re: 1958 charging problem

If the battery is OK I'd suspect an earth leak - they can be a devil to find, easiest way is elimination. On a modern car with multiple fuses its much easier. Sadly Minors generally have just two!

Re: Another dodgy minor on fleabay....

A whole rash of hooky ads for Minors on Fleabay today. The scammer took a break for a while, my guess 3 months in the big house. Exactly the same cars and MO as before. I've been reporting them but ebay should do more to stop these idiots.

Not that the Tories would care, I was there through the Thatcher era and will never forgive them. Not that the rest are much better.

Boss 429 mustangs were only built in 1969 and 1970.

if that's a 1967 car, its not a real 429.
Well spotted, a schoolboy error. The 67 has a different front end as well

Re: Currently drinking.....

Old Speckled Hen also do a decent gluten-free beer, which is a rare thing indeed! Just been told I have Coeliacs - so cruel for a real ale fan, especially one with a taste for stouts and porters. Home brew may be a good solution. For now I'll just risk the odd cheeky normal beer.

Re: get you home bodges

Once managed to drive a Mk1 Cavalier 2 miles home on three cylinders - the unusual bit was that No 3 piston and rod had exited the block! It got scrapped!.

One got home with a rubber band replacing a snapped throttle return spring.

There are still lots of cars requesting your email and it says Germany in the listing :evil:
That's probably the most prolific offender, reported to ebay dozens of times. Police should go after him as I have no doubt its linked to organised crime. He often lists cars owned by WRCC

If you right-click on the dodgy email and choose 'examine' you can usually see the senders real email address. What you do with this is up to you!

Re: Spotted today.

Talked to the owner, it was actually a more 'oily rag' car close up, very honest and original. There were a number of Minors in attendance on Sunday plus loads of other very nice cars. A good day out.

Re: Morris Minor Specialists

My local old car specialist retired a couple of years back. Always used to enjoy going there as you never knew what would be there at the time. Used to be loads of MGs, occasional Astons and Jags and much other interesting oldies along with the moderns. He was also very reasonably priced

Very tidy '52 MM series in Northallerton at lunchtime today, MRW registration. Not one I've seen around these parts before. Possibly in town for this Sundays classic car show in the High Street

Re: Exhaust raspberries

A shorter tailpipe farts less. I once fitted a full new system and the tailpipe projected past the bumper. To prevent damage from reversing I had the angle grinder out and lobbed a good 6 inches off, definite difference.
