Re: Leaving a Morris in the Open Air

The touch-glass seals for the windows are a good idea.

Re: Tracker Systems

" You can get the best tracker in the world but if the install is bad it will be useless and easily bypassed, with all security products the important thing is the install, well hidden unit and cable runs "

Re: Locking petrol cap

Well that didn't take long to arrive from Bulgaria....the down-side is that the key profile although looking the same is totally different , as is the sealing washer ....and to top it all it won't fit in the filler pipe fitting..... No useable parts , destined for the dustbin.... Moral of this story...

Re: Locking petrol cap

I've had mine for a while and as well as the non-venting , cannot order or get a spare key cut for it , have resorted to buying what looks like a cheap " blue " replacement from Bulgaria to do some non-destructive? testing to try and remove the key mechanism.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ADBLUE-Tru...

Re: Locking petrol cap

Mike I found the fuel sender weeping , eventually traced it to pressure build up , took the filler pipe off and pressurised it ( lung pressure ) and nothing was going to give...took the sealing ring off the cap and put a couple of small small holes in-line with the vents... 2020_0607petrolcap0005.JP...

Re: Locking petrol cap

...and I'd have a look at the " breather " system on the cap , mine needed a small hole punching in the seal to allow pressure to escape...

Re: LH top trunnions

" Is there any reason (which I'm obviously missing) why the LH upper trunnion would fail more than the RH one?? "

Maybe the gutter being on the left ( UK ) with lots more water , grids and kerbstones?

Roundabouts being clockwise ?
