Old spot lamp bracket?

I don’t know how this works but it was fitted to a Minor that my uncle had, I think it wraps around the bumper iron.
If anyone can make use of it.
£3 + postage

Dies, die nuts and reamers

Mostly whitworth, the large ones at the back are bsp. The reamers are various sizes,
I thought £10, the postage would probably be the killer though.

Re: Allen keys and taps

Hi Mike, I’ll gather them up and get a weight, post offices are still open so will get onto it Monday.
I’ve got too much of this stuff, I’ve duplicated it over the years, I need to rationalise. There will be other bits later I’m sure.

Re: brake fluid

If you have new brake components, silicone is an option. I use it and have had no problems, wheel cylinders don’t tend to seize up with this fluid. It’s more expensive, so many people still use dot 4 and are happy, so it’s a personal choice,

Re: Adderley Park Number details needed

Sounds like a plan Chris, if you’re happy with that. I’ll send a donation to an animal charity in return, I’m sure you’ll approve, I’ll pm my details.

Sorry if it’s any of my posts that have upset you. The thoughts and suggestions were made in good faith, and simply asked for your response to them. I understand you’re fed up with it after all this time, I’m losing interest too. :(

Re: As we are now in lockdown...

You raise an interesting consequence of this new way of daily life, in fact I’m sure not all the effects have come to light yet, i think they’re going to surprise and indeed shock us in the months to come, and indeed the difficulties when this is all over. When it gets a bit warmer I’m going to cont...

Re: Adderley Park Number details needed

Well I hope we do see the book, the fact that Chris asked for people that want a copy to let him know, would suggest he’s ready to go. Although admittedly, the recent request for more data rather puts that in doubt. Sadly in one post, a couple of months ago he felt it was time to hang up his coat, a...

Re: Reconditioned Box - Jumping out of gear

All things are possible but a reputable company would consider the extension as part of the gearbox, which it is. Making it more confusing as to why it’s in such a state. I still thing that mass at the bottom right is restricting the movement, at the very least it shouldn’t be there.

Re: jacking beam

Mine is a rather simpler affair, less professional even! It consists of a rectangular beam with a two inch high block of close laminate beech ply each end, topped with the afore mentioned rubber pads. I accept the point Phil makes although in most instances if feel the jack would roll forward to com...

Chris, your last post makes no reference to my earlier suggestions, you may not agree with them, and that’s fair enough, as I recognise it’s your project but it would be nice to hear your views. If you wait until you have every detail of every Minor ever produced, I for one won’t be here anymore :o ...

Would you believe it, I've got a similar bar, for central jacking. You’ve made longer top bars, which is better.

Re: 1275 timing marks

It’s the AEG163 I was comparing your lower photo to, the valves in which almost touched. I had trouble with mine which cracked between the seats. I tried a good few BMC dealerships to get a replacement but it had been discontinued so had to settle for the 12g1805 you mention. Incidentally a friend o...

Re: Reconditioned Box - Jumping out of gear

If you look carefully, ie magnify, ( I don’t think I’m seeing things) the area that looks like filings has a curve at the top, that matches the selector shape, possibly caused by it hitting and hindering its travel, when pulled back, maybe the problem?
