Re: semaphore

Well I've learnt a lot from ManyMinors. :) Thanks. My experience/knowledge obviously doesn't go back far enough. I think the key thing here is to go with what you have. If they are currently painted, then stick with painted. I would hazard a guess that Morris soon found it far easier to stock interc...

Re: semaphore

I've been looking into this some more and clearly the problem with looking at colour photos of vintage cars is that if the photo is less than 40 years old the car may have been refurbished with newer trafficators. But there again, if they were still serviceable they would be the original fit. Basil ...

Re: semaphore

Hi
As far as I'm aware, the post-war Lucas Trafficators (at least the model variant fitted to the Minors) were only ever produced in Chromed finish.
They may have produced bare metal versions for other vehicles or in the pre-war period.

Mines a 67 saloon
I understood there were holes already there for it
I’m hoping someone has the same model without carpets fitted so I can identify the exact position without removing the felt
Have you tried looking from underneath the car.?

Re: emblem color

Just to chuck something into the works... Basil may not have the original boot lid or badge after all these years, but although the bonnet badge is indeed coloured in blue, the boot badge is without any.

Re: problems starting

alawrence10360, mogbob stated that ALL Minors had solenoids. Phil and I are saying that they did not, the early cars had cable operated switches that were not solenoids. Hope that clarifies things. There's quite a bit of thread drift here, but it is interesting. Exactly. There is no way on earth th...

Coronavirus Sign download

Hi If you're self-isolating for any reason, you'll perhaps want a sign for the front door. Over at the H&S Forum where I moderate, one of the members has put a link to pdf signs that can be downloaded with different messages. You don't need to register or log in, just follow the link to the download...

Re: Side lamps series 2

My '55 Basil has the latter 61-63 version, so I've no experience of the ones he should have. Looking at the ones available, what's the purpose of the 2 little tabs on the back plate? Does that lock the Lens ring in place? https://www.morrisminor.org.uk/parts/57-indicators-sidelights/2151-bulb-holder...

The online booking is now available.... However, a word of caution.

That's a common type of fitting of the era, not just on cars but even on aircraft. The original tool would have been a fine wide flat blade screwdriver with a slot machined in it.

Just in case you didn’t see the outcome I did as suggested
And put the end of the pipe in hot water, and after a bit of work
The valve went in and I managed to get the washer bottle to
Spray again.Job done thank you all.

Re: Temperature Sender

Possibly busted it.
I have an electrical one myself; from the looks of it, I assume that's a capillary type gauge?
I've not seen one before exactly like yours, but I'd assume it's removed by getting a spanner on the bit with 2 flats, not that nut you've undone.
