Re: creaking noise when pulling off

Andy posted 10 years ago, he may not be around now. When looking at old posts like this, whichever the forum is, I find it useful to check the originator's profile and see when they were last active, i.e. the last time the signed in (obviously it won't show the last time they read anything without ...

Re: dead moggy

Well that sounds like real progress. Your Lecky pal should soon have an answer for you. Anyone who knows their way around with a multimeter should hopefully locate the problem in a few minutes. The other advantage to having a clean engine bay is making problems like this far easier to spot. :lol: :l...

Re: dead moggy

Totally agree. Not sure you understand my use of the noun 'sentiment' though. a view or opinion that is held or expressed. I personally wouldn't have even tried to start the car until I had found what caused the burnout of that strip of conductor. I don't think there was 'prolonged current' because ...

Re: dead moggy

I appreciate ManyMinors sentiment about rewiring the car, but I think it is a rush to judgement by any of us without seeing it first hand. What we can see in those photographs looks horrible, with loose wires all over the place, but could equally all be cosmetic and a darn good clean up of the engin...

Re: Carpet Fasterners

Thanks GavinL

Very interesting image, it possibly shows 14 studs, yet the only number quoted that I've seen so far is ESM saying 10 required :-? .

Anyone out there got an original carpet, or photos of their car before restoration?

Re: dead moggy

Hey Phil It brought back memories of a time in the 70s when I went out to look at a snag on an aircraft with the assistance of a fellow electrician, the difference being I was the 'technician', he was the 'mechanic'; he checked the fuse and told me it was OK, so we spent an hour chasing the fault ar...

Re: dead moggy

Lets just leave it at that. Life is too short to argue about this any more. Phil I agree. Semantics perhaps. I'm incorrect to say you were completely wrong. Now I read it yet again, the first part is right, the 2nd part is misleading at least to me. But I can see the way you intended it. Regards Be...

Re: dead moggy

Darren your Willy will be fine, for your information it has been mentioned that the high current from the alternator goes through the regulator. This is not the case, the high current output from the alternator goes to battery connection side of the starter switch with a suitably sized wire as you ...

Phil, don't let it worry you, as I also got shot down for saying I found the problem rugulator burnt out then got told it does nothing and basically it can't be that, water off a ducks back, but it got me where I am now,😃 That was a misunderstanding in that the Regulator didn't do anything in terms...

Re: dead moggy

If there is no sign that the little metal strip had somehow shorted to the bulkhead, then it must be that there is some other significant wiring damage to the lighting wiring somewhere. You will have to find that before you move on. You could try checking each segment of the lighting wiring with th...

Re: dead moggy

Wow :o A has gone like a fuse which I wasn't expecting. Is there any signs that it was touching the bodywork on the bulkhead? I was expecting the missing section you had described to be starting at the rear of the A terminal, not mid way along. If there is no sign that the little metal strip had som...

I've not seen one of these before.
Don't know if it's of interest to anyone; claims to be for a Minor, but I'm doubtful of that.

Carpet Fasterners

Something I only recently because aware of was that Moggie Carpets used to be clipped down to the floor. It's rare to see this as replacement carpets don't automatically have them. Even mentions of carpet fasteners on the forum are about as rare as hens teeth. However, both CW and ESM list them and ...

Re: Holes in bulkhead

Carpet fastners? Can’t help you there I’m afraid. I’ve never had the luxury of a mog with intact original carpets :D Me neither. it was only seeing them on the photo posted by ManyMinors that I realised they existed. Then I looked at the CW site and they sell them, but don't say the quantity requir...

Re: alloy or copper rad?

All very confusing the mix and match of bits that you see The car is November 1958, hence the heater hose arrangement, and according to the receipts that came with it when my mother bought it when it was 6 years old, the original 'round' recirculating heater was fitted by the supplying dealer in 19...

Re: alloy or copper rad?

Our hose arrangement is exactly the same as the link above. When did the 'push/pull' heater temperature valve come in? ~1962? Is this the same point when the return from the heater was re-routed from the bottom of the radiator into the top of the bottom hose? I reckon the heater push/pull valve cam...

Re: dead moggy

This misalignment of the terminal I've highlighted, does make me wonder if that rivet is loose and by association, if perhaps the others might be loose too. Reg Photo.JPG It probably wouldn't have been a problem with a Dynamo, but the output of an alternator is significantly higher and what tends to...
