Re: Films?

I can’t recall what programme it was but I do remember the ‘celeb’ driving the Minor, I don’t think they knew how to use a clutch with the amount of gear crunching going on. If you must do it, be selective and find out what they want to do with your car. Remember it’s ‘show business’ your car is jus...

Re: Sockets for centre dash grille

Thanks for clarification, my vehicle is a later model so I’m not familiar with the ‘54.

Re: Sockets for centre dash grille

I initially thought it was those chrome pieces being asked about but as it would be obvious that nuts secured them, doubted these pieces were the subject. I’m still unclear, hopefully it will be clarified. :D Unless some of these chrome strips had just spikes rather than a thread, in which case woul...

Re: Diff Identification

Looks like a 3.9 diff. (10/39) The shaft protruding from the gearbox bell housing should have a number somewhere round its circumference, from memory 22g229 for 1275 gearbox.

Re: Minor Identification Booklet

That’s another reason not to include them in the booklet, it’s holding you up too much. It appears people are mainly interested in the other variants details, which I assume are ready to go.

Re: Insurance

They wouldn’t pull you on a clutch unless you mentioned something about it yourself, would they. If you don’t like it, it’s a free market. I still say £143 is afair price

What did you say about the clutch when you first applied for a quote? £80 plus 63 isn’t too bad is it?

I know how you feel Mark but since I’ve had a better garage built, this is now only used to keep my manuals. :D

Re: Gearbox woes

Not so much difficult as requiring patience, there are a number of areas where you need to check clearances, and indeed dismantle and assemble in a specific order. I think I’m right in saying someone on this forum posted a rebuild guide, which I saved on my homepage but in trying to access this for ...

Re: Minor Identification Booklet

I’ve just reread an earlier post here Chris, regarding now working on LCV figures to be included in booklet. I can’t help thinking this is going to take you a fair amount of time. It’s your baby but as a suggestion have you considered treating the commercials in their own booklet, that way the detai...

What ever side you’re on, both are mind blowing, as it’s just as incredible to believe all you see around you, material and living, started from a couple of chemicals getting together. as it is to believe in it happening the other way.

Re: fuel tank blockage

From that photo it doesn’t look like you can remove the strainer, pity because it looks full of rubbish inside. Flushing the tank with some proprietary cleaner may buy you some time but if it was me, the condition of the tank would prompt me to look for a replacement, the last thing you want is anot...

Re: Adverts

Prices vary, £1500 in some cases, if one hasn’t got the money the council will do what’s necessary. You won’t be left in the street.
