Re: Purolator Oil Filter Assembly

Not a problem I have since the engine was previously modified to a canister type. However, I found this diagram and explanation that might help with correct assembly; although it provides a number for each item, it doesn't then provide a list of the items..... https://mgaguru.com/mgtech/engine/of100...

Re: Vinyl Restoration / Colour

Hi I assume the door cards weren't black though so what were they, red? I've successfully used a touch up pen to cover scratches on mine www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261102106655 Perhaps finding a supplier of different sizes would allow you to get a small container to try on an area that's not usually seen, u...

Re: Series 2 glove box liners

I saw that one Phil, which I think is the one Mike spoke of, but it won't fit a SII due to the wiper motor location.

Re: Series 2 glove box liners

I would guess that it is the internal wiper motor which dictates the smaller glovebox liner on the Series 11 cars? Yes, the RH one needs the cut-off corner for the Wiper Motor, so the LH is a mirror of that, presumably for aesthetic symmetry. (I assume they didn't swap the motor to the other side f...

Re: Accident rate caused by Classics MOT exemption ?

From my experience of researching Road Accident Data, since I'm currently chair of our Parish Council's Road Safety Committee, it is nigh on impossible to drill down to the specifics of vehicles involved. Insurance companies may hold it, but this past 18 months has been so skewed with the lack of ve...

Re: Three word story FORUM GAME

allegedly by 'accident'...




I posted this because there had been nothing on the forums for almost 5 hours, since just before 8:00am, so I thought I'd just do something to see if they were broken... lo and behold, PhiltheHill was posting something at the same time :lol: :lol:

Re: Strange whirring noise under bonnet

All Modern Cars are Negative Earth. All Minors were built Positive Earth , but many have been converted to Negative Earth simply because you can't get hold of things like negative earth Radios any longer. Equally, if the car is now fitted with an after-market Alternator finding one of them with a '...

Re: Strange whirring noise under bonnet

The trouble with diagnosis by letter, is not being there to actually see/hear it. :cry: Firstly yes fuel pump clicks when key is turned. That's a good sign, if its the normal click rate and then stopping after a short while, it should mean fuel is OK When the headlights are turned on the ignition st...

I’m not able to post pictures. Give me a ring if interested.They are well polished and as good as you will find.
I suspect your photos are too large, reduce them in file size to under 1Mb, easily done, even on a phone.

Re: Strange whirring noise under bonnet

Hi Just to review some of your comments for clarity, ours and yours. so you get the engine making a trying to start noise Is that just the engine turning over on the Starter, i.e just constant turning and nothing else, or is it actually giving the occasional kick as it tries to 'fire' ? I'm assuming...

Re: Strange whirring noise under bonnet

simmitc has pretty much said it all, well enough to be getting on with, because these points need covering first. As myoldjallopy has said, 'What exactly do you mean by "the engine does turn over rapidly but doesn't start and after a few goes just dies." Such a phrase means different things to diffe...

Wow, what a resume; you joined the forum almost 7 years ago, and for a first post after all those years of lurking in silence, rather than ask a new question, decide to resurrect one from 9 years ago.

Hi Geoberni, it Looks like the same servo fitter has struck again. Have you any instructions or tips that you could pass onto me please? Any hints, tips or wrinkles would be much appreciated. Many thanks Jonnie. The key influencer will be if your servo is 2 or 3 bolt fixing. Luckily, Basil's is 2 b...
