Re: Which coil?

My guess it you will now get as many opinions as there are makes/brands of Coil..... When I got my car it had an Accuspark with a Red body and Black top (Sport?). That failed on me. https://www.mmoc.org.uk/Messageboard/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=69837&hilit=Coil&p=637860#p636467 I currently have a Lucas S...

Re: Gold Seal Engine Painting

I am struggling to find a UK suppliet but it is readily available in the US That's because they are principally an American domestic paint brand, basically part of Dupli-Color, which is a Sherwin-Williams brand. You may find you can get it under a different label in the UK, as Sherwin-Williams are ...

Re: engine type query

:) Strangely enough, the engine numbering is absolutely nothing to do with the voltage of the ancillary equipment.... :wink: As far as I understand, an A Series Engine that's a '12V' was originally intended for 1300 Morris Marina, the 1300 Vanden Plas or the Sprite/Midget. it probably came from a Mi...

Re: Minor Matters

So I guess there have been a few deliveries since the weekend of the Jan/Feb 2021 edition. Mine arrived yesterday and so far I've flicked through it reading some of the shorter items before finding time to tackle the longer articles, such as 'The Last Saloon'. The Member's Cars feature caught my eye...

Re: Engine dies but restarts easily

I think the wire was supposed to be a length of flexible braid but the solder had made it completely rigid. Same place that mine broke, except the braid connection remained in place: https://www.mmoc.org.uk/Messageboard/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=69837&hilit=Coil&p=637860#p636467 I didn't accurately desc...

Re: Engine dies but restarts easily

New one on ours lasted less than 1000miles, I don't think the modern ones are up to the vibration of being mounted on the engine. My thoughts exactly. The broken connection inside my Coil when I opened it up was classic fracturing of a solder joint, easily caused by vibration of the unsupported, ve...

Re: Minor history

You say 'Not on any records', so presumably you've applied to DVLA on a V888 and they have nothing archived?
You might try local authority archives.
Some of the County Registration records were retained in local council archives if the vehicle was already off register when DVLA took over.

Re: Disconnected wiring

Having the Coil connections reversed makes no significant difference to whether you get a spark. It just means the spark is jumping from outer to inner on the plug. This can result in a moderately weaker spark and the plugs might wear out sooner apparently, but that's all really. The change from Pos...

Re: Choke Won't Return

It's a difficult one, sometimes oiling can just attract more dust and make it worse after a brief period. obviously haven't seen it, but sometimes a cable end such as you describe can be 'cleaned up' in terms of reshaping and twisting back together, enough that it can be soldered on the end to hold ...

Re: Jacking points / axle stands

Why? How long has it sat there already? Is the body underside capable of taking stands? If the suspension hasn't already collapsed, is it really likely to in the next few months? Why 'take the pressure off the suspension'... if it's currently OK? Personally, if offered that advice, I'd like to know ...
