Re: Can someone please advise how to replace the bump stop on a 1961 tourer?

Gentlemen, apologies for not replying earlier, firstly thank you all for your helpful comments. My reference to looking inside the engine bay was to see if there's any cracks, patches, etc. where the front bump stops or rebound stops are beneath. I did with the aid of an inspection lamp, closely loo...

Can someone please advise how to replace the bump stop on a 1961 tourer?

I viewed a 1961 tourer with a colleague & looking in the engine bay we had concerns that the bump stops on either side were missing, how difficult is it to replace? Furthermore, will missing bump stops be picked up by an MOT inspection & result in a failure or advisory? We also noticed that the sill...

Re: Wiring diagram for installing a rear windscreen demister

Just to update members who've participated in this post, I've measured the amperage of the demister & it's around 5A. I've also obtained some white cabling to match the ignition colour on the old wiring diagram I have. Everything seemed to work on the "mock-up" in my garage & in the next few weeks I...

Re: Wiring diagram for installing a rear windscreen demister

Hi Brian, I'm at a branch mtg tonight & hopefully the guy who's got a better multi-meter, which I think has a 20A internal fuse, mines only a 5A, will be there & I will ask him if I can borrow it. Meanwhile, I've inserted a 10A fuse (I've got a range of other lower/higher ones ready) near the spare ...

Re: Wiring diagram for installing a rear windscreen demister

Brian, thank you for your advice, the wires on my multi-meter are about the same diameter & it's fitted with an internal fuse, however, my friend has an industrial type, that has a higher fuse rating, so I will ask him to check the amperage on my mock up. I'll install a second in-line fuse at the ba...

Re: Wiring diagram for installing a rear windscreen demister

Brian, yes that's the one, although mine didn't come in a box, it seems from the description that the body is plastic (bakelite?), apologies as I thought it's a black metal casing. Does the box in your picture refer to a date? Regarding your suggestion of the "final working fuse should be at the bat...

Re: Wiring diagram for installing a rear windscreen demister

Gentlemen, thank you all for your advice. I've a 1981 booklet titled Autodata Car Repair Manual Minor 1000 1956-71. Towards the end there's a section on installing a rear screen heater, with 2 examples, the first & more simpler, shows a diagram of the heater circuit without a relay, the second diagr...

Re: Dash board mounted push-pull switches

Thank you for your advice. I was thinking of trying one of the "pens" used to touch up grouting in bathrooms as the nib is fine & the pen is easy to apply. However, I will also try your recommendations & see what works best.

Re: Wiring diagram for installing a rear windscreen demister

Thank you for the 2 replies so far. In reply to the first one, I should have stated negative earth, I apologise for this confusion. Regarding the point about 17A wire & considering using a 35A in-line fuse & possible adverse consequences. According to the note on the spool, the wire is rated up to a...

Dash board mounted push-pull switches

Hi everyone, my original black bakelite switches have worn legends eg unable to see L for lights etc. Apart from replacing these working switches, I wondered about carefully re-stenciling the legend, has anyone successfully done this & can they plse advise how? Thank you in advance.
