Re: Brakelight Switch Replacement

I've already ordered an 'Intermotor' switch Neil, which, with shoebone's suggestion of a relay (also on its way), will hopefully resolve the issue but thanks anyway for the suggestion.

Re: Brakelight Switch Replacement

Many thanks Shoebone for that heads up. I've now dug out the two issues of Minor Matters that contain the article referred to and will crack on and order a suitable relay. :D

Re: Brakelight Switch Replacement

Thanks all for your helpful responses. Seems more straightforward than I'd feared. The brakes are still standard Minor fare with no additions. I like the tip about filling the switch with fluid first simmitc as, from a Rob Thomasson article a few years ago, it seems it's quite possible for an air bu...

Brakelight Switch Replacement

Just discovered that I've inadvertently been driving around for lord knows how long with inoperative brake lights. Oops! Fortunately, the brakes on my car have been so incredibly feeble (I've now replaced comprehensively seized cylinders and renewed the brake shoes) that no following driver would ha...

Re: Old school Ford V4s

Back in the late sixties I had a Corsair 2000, possibly the worst car I've ever owned. You'd be hard pressed to describe the engine as 'smooth-running', it was no where near as fast/powerful as you might have reasonably expected (it was pitched against the Rover 2000 and Triumph 2000 after all) and ...

As, in fact, demonstrated several times on 'Wheeler Dealers' by Edd China.

Re: Rubbish rubber.

Because some (many?) of the 'traditional' components of the mix have been outlawed as a result of health and safety considerations.

Re: observations

Mmm, I wonder. Maybe a touch of rose-tinted speccery. One example that comes to mind is the (fortunately) now defunct 1970's motorway 'fast lane flasher'. I'm sure there are plenty more we can think of. It's people, innit?

Re: Leaving a Morris in the Open Air

There is a school of thought that says a car parked in the open air is less likely to rust than one garaged after every trip. Any moisture on the former is dried out by air movement and the sun's heat whereas a damp/wet car in a garage creates its own non-moving moisture-laden climate; ideal conditi...
