Re: master cylinder fault

I have just read another thread where the owner was contemplating using a repair kit but has been talked out of it due to failing seals. As the MS is located in a pig of a location if you have to change it you only want to be doing it once. I cannot comment on your particular problem but having had ...

Re: King pin replacement

Thanks for the replies
I did of course mean Trunnion's and not King Pins.
I now have a manual for the Minor so I will have a proper read through before I go to work.
Your help is invaluable.

I have never worked with king pins on a morris minor before so I have a couple of questions Will replacing the kingpins have an effect on the camber and castor on the front wheels? Secondly if I measure the...

Re: Upgrading my grease gun

Wanner grease guns are a nice size, but try and get a flexi made up as the solid nozzle can be difficult to get into some of the grease points.
I picked my Wanner up cheap from E-bay for a few quid.

Re: Best type of garage door

I built my garage about ten years ago and decided on a roller shutter door, I have just replaced the motor (an easy job) and other than the motor it has never caused me any issues. My door is 10ft wide by 8ft high. It has a remote with it so I can open the door as I approach. the roller shutter door...

Re: Spotted today.

It must be a good weather thing, in the last few days I have seen a few Minors around the Manchester area.
I saw a grey split screen towing a trailer in near Sale, I saw a cream tourer in Cheadle.
Yesterday I saw a blue saloon in Ramsbottom whilst I was in my 2 door.
Nice to see so many out and about.

Impending restoration

Good evening As mentioned in other posts I recently aquired a 1965 2 door morris minor 1000. From a distance it looks fairly presentable and has been painted in the past. The previous owner did things the wrong way round and painted over some rust ( and filler). I intend to have the car professional...

Re: Indicator issue

Apologies I didn't explain myself very well. The indicators work as normal apart from when the light or the heater are switched on. At that point the stalk light stays on constant and the actual indicator goes out, the flasher unit also stops. As the flasher unit then works as normal once the lights...

Indicator issue

Hi all The indicators on my '65 minor 1000 work fine until I switch the lights on or the heater then they freeze. I'm thinking something along the lines of a bad earth or something but I'm not that clued up on electrics. Would fitting a new earth lead help or could any of you experienced minor owner...

Re: Ezibleed query

That may be my issue, in one of the manuals it states to fill the master cylinder to the bottom of the thread for the cap,maybe my cylinder is over full.
I will try persuade my wife to pump the pedal for me again.
Thanks for the information thus far.

Re: Ezibleed query

Well I have been busy with work lately but on attempting to bleed the brake system I have hit a wall and would like some advice. If I open the master cylinder and depress the brake pedal I can see fluid being forced out of the cylinder. Does this point to a leaking seal within the master cylinder? T...

Re: Mysterious Scratches

I will second the hose pipe theory, I suffered the same damage to one of my previous cars so now I'm careful not to allow the hose anywhere near the car.
As the hose is fairly light I would think the scuffs would Polish out.
Good luck.

Re: Ezibleed query

Phil
Thanks for your assistance.
I will drill and tap the cap which will hopefully sort out the air in my system.
Which hillclimb championship do you compete in?
I used to hillclimb a lifetime ago but work got in the way.

Re: Ezibleed query

Well that's me totally confused.
I have ordered the unvented cap from ESM and see if that will fit my lockheed MC.
If it does then I will drill and tap as per your guide.
Thanks for your input.
