Re: Improved heater

The heat output of my Traveller's heater was non existent when I drove it home after buying it on a cold February day. So I decided to flush out the heater core and you would not believe the amount of brown crud that came out of it. It is a very easy job to do if you have a garden hose pipe availabl...

Re: SU carb float chamber not filling

Is the float needle stuck onto the seat ?
Have you tried blowing into the fuel inlet pipe on the carb to see if it is clear ?

Re: Starting Dad's old Minor

Our Traveller has a male name............. My wife who is an animal lover wanted to call him "Johnny" after Johnny Morris the famous presenter of a 1960's TV programme called Animal Magic. I was not too sure about having a car called Johnny :-? , so we eventually settled on "Desmond" after Desmond M...

Re: Bull Motif/ESM

I thought that rather than speculate and go off rumours, it would be better just to ask ESM about who owns who. This is the reply I got which should hopefully put this to bed. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------...

Re: LHD Glovebox lid

You need to consider how you will get the panel in and out of the dashboard. It is impossible on mine to remove the glovebox surround itself without dismantling most of the gubbins around the steering column to make some space. If that were to have the dials mounted directly into it, that would be e...

Re: Soda blasting or acid dipping

Not sure about acid dipping, but blasting will probably not work very well on soft sticky materials, the blasting media will just become embedded into it.

Re: Starting Dad's old Minor

There is good chance that you have flattened the battery by having multiple starts and not enough running to re-charge it. When this happens the battery voltage drops and there is not enough in it to both turn the engine over and to create the ignition sparks needed. Do you have a starting handle ?,...

Re: Wiring in a bank of plugs/usb ports

I installed a cig lighter socket on mine, into which I plug a USB power adaptor. There are quite a few types to choose from, some are simply USB outlets but mine has a digital inside temperature and battery voltage display as well. All very cheap on ebay. I positioned the cig lighter socket so there...

Re: Trunnion Pin

John If I were you I would give the supplier a ring and quiz him about the difference in design before you do anything else. Is there a steel sleeve between the bushes ?. If so you might still be able to remove it to gain enough clearance. Ask the supplier before you do remove it though, as they mig...

Re: Trunnion Pin

Hi again, Bangor is too far for me I am in West Yorkshire ( We are thinking of a holiday in North Wales next Summer though ) On your trunnion you will probably have a very thin walled tube inside sitting between the two bushes, it is very easy for this to get distorted and make assembly difficult, d...

Re: Trunnion Pin

It depends on how far you have screwed it onto the swivel pin, there is a groove in the thread to allow the trunnion pin to pass across it. You need to get these aligned so the swivel pin is in the "straight ahead" position, this will allow the pin to pass the thread, and then make sure the trunnion...

Re: Starting Problems

No power to the coil should be easy to trace, maybe a wire loose on the ignition switch. Just temporarily rig up a supply to the coil from the battery and see if it fires up, then at least you know you are on the right track if it does. It could be any number of reasons, you just need to thnk logica...

Price of Travellers

It amazes me how much something can go up in value in such a short space of time. This Traveller on ebay is priced at £17,950. It has been on there for months and did not get any bids last week at £7,950. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Morris-Minor-Traveler-Highly-Original-NO-Capital-Gains-Tax-On-Profit...

I was thinking of asking him if the Airstream Caravan gearbox has a whine in all gears or just 1st :D
