and I would suggest that the 5/16" holes are bored to 3/8" to allow a better alignment.
What a brilliant idea. This is what I will be doing the next time the thermostat housing is removed.

Re: Condenser problem

I had a couple of condensers go so I tried electronic ignition which lasted 18 months, I've now had a distributor doctor points and condenser for the last 6 months with no problem.

Re: Engine in bits for a rebore-anything else worth doing?

It was worth doing whatever the oil leak as you have sorted out the rockers. Well done.

Re: Engine in bits for a rebore-anything else worth doing?

Before doing anything, I would go for a run and see if it stops. I would then try it with the lights on and see what happens, I would also consider fitting the new spare fanbelt.

It may make the belt screech if you have run the battery down.

Re: Torsion Bar Adjuster Plate - Aghhhhh!!!!!

You will need to check that the fabricator of the crossmember hasn't fitted a strengthening tube inside the member to stop the sides being crushed in by the bolt. They probably didn't which could be why the nut is welded. But if they did, it will make the job of adding slots much harder. If its been...

Are you sure that the slot isn't there, its a few inches away from the shouldered washer? Sorry, just looked again at the photos, looks like drill and dremil time.

Re: Gearbox prices

I have always wanted to rebuild a spare gearbox but when I see them advertised they are always miles away or quite expensive. Its supply and demand again. I can remember when you could not give a 1275 midget engine away.

Re: Help with Brake Master Cylinder (rear bolt)

The replacement has a filler plug fitted, this should have been supplied for a standard system, I would fit the new master cylinder after removing the top hat seal, bleed the brakes and use the vehicle. You don't need the remote reservoir for disks if you check your master cylinder level regularly. ...

For a normal road going engine I would leave them as they are. That's how BL designed them.

Your right ManyMinors. Moss did have them but they are now marked as currently unavailable. I last looked a few years ago and I think that they were about £200 + vat. For ESM see https://www.morrisminorspares.com/body- ... nv-p828435

Th great shame is that door skins are only available for the two door. My four door is starting to go at the bottom of the rear doors. Full skins are quite easy to replace

Re: Engine in bits for a rebore-anything else worth doing?

If it has been run for a while with the peg missing, I would check the shaft to see if its worn. They are cheap to buy and easy to fit.

Re: Seat fixing bracket extensions

The bars are fixed to the floor by the same two bolts that would normally fix the seats, if you are that worried you could make the bar longer and use the three floor mounting bolts. The flat bar can be any thickness that you want, probably 5mm will be more that sufficient.

No new holes have been drilled in the floor of the car. It's a flat bar, the front hole is bolted to the original seat mounting hole, the second hole bolt secures the front of the seat mounting hoop and bolts to the rear original mounting hole. the rear of the mounting hoop is secured to a stud weld...
