Re: torque wrench

I would go for a known make, something like Britool. The range to cover is quite large and my thinking, for accuracy, is one to cover up to say 50ft lbs. Another to take care of the higher torques. I’m not sure the ones that cover the whole range can be as accurate. Well that’s my opinion.

Re: Morris 1000 van with 1275 engine

I didn’t think the van was too badly priced, if the pictures are anything to go by. However if you are now happy to accept a saloon your options should open up.

Re: Traveller leaf springs best place to buy

I notice the ESM springs for the traveller have the proper retaining straps holding the leaves together. Whereas some springs have a wrap around steel bands over a rubber sleeve, doing that job. A poor cost cutting substitute, that should be avoided.

Re: Disgusting behavour by Jeremy Clarkson

Student types, benefits and unwashed. Wow, how out of touch are you! :D Getting back to the issue, what sort of individual would say they support cruelty. The only way around that is to say it’s not cruel, which they hope will hide their true character.

Re: Curiosity killed the.....

It’s religious slaughter, Britain allows it, I think Norway and countries around there, don’t allow it. Saying animal welfare comes before religion. Intelligent thinking in my book. I would have thought it pretty difficult for a man to watch such suffering, let alone cause it. Just goes to show how ...

I get all that Les. It’s just difficult when you have to clear up something that looks like the aftermath of the Somme.

Re: Curiosity killed the.....

I’ve heard about this killing instinct of the fox, I don’t know the reason for it except to say it can’t be done for the fun of it. That’s the preserve of the human animal. Examples not required, there are too many! I myself, feel sad seeing roadkill, despite a species tendencies. In the same way I’...

Re: Minor Hairsteam II

I don’t know how it would drive but to overcome the excessive overhang, moving the rear axle forward and adding another further back might be feasible. I personally think the two parts, Minor front and more futuristic rear are at odds with each other. However your project and wish you good luck.

Re: IGN light on, fitted with alternator

First check is to make sure the fan belt is not too loose and consequently slipping. Dynamo and/or alternator will not charge if the belt is not tensioned properly.

Re: Curiosity killed the.....

I’ll go with that sentiment, probably lean towards majority rather than vast majority though. I’ve been spared the sight of the result of the mentioned fox attack but I have an imagination and daresay it’s comparable to the inside of one of our abattoirs. :(

Re: 1275, Backplates and gearboxes

I’ve found a chart that suggest, If you’ve got twin carbs, an option for a tuned 1275 S mini is BG needles and blue springs, so maybe you’d want to start there.
