A 7 psi cap is perfectly acceptable.

If you are not sure what vehicle the 1275cc engine is originally from just post a picture of the engine and it will become clear what vehicle the 1275cc engine came from.
I’m not sure I can show enough detail for you Phil

Re: Radiator Cap & Thermostat

Thanks The rad cap that is fitted to my 1275 engine is 7 psi It was from a midget I think but it’s been rebuilt by a company called Ivor Searle and they have fitted their own serial number so I’m not sure what it came from. I wasn’t sure whether to stick with 7 or fit a 4 I have no issues with the o...

Wheels

I’ve got pick up wheels with 165 70 14 tyres on my saloon however the spare wheel doesn’t fit where it should.
I was wondering if I could use a standard wheel as a spare or would it be possible to move the shelf in the boot to accommodate the wider wheel
Anyone have any thoughts?

Re: Thermostat housing

The housing from a 'B' Series engine fits if you drill out the holes to 3/8" diameter, and points in the right direction to fit the standard Minor top hose - the outlet from the 'B' housing is slightly larger than the Minor, but a little working will get it on without too much trouble. Will this fi...

This what I did and used a cut down bottom hose as the top hose was no longer suitable.
Not sure what this is

Thermostat housing

I’ve got a 1275 engine in my saloon and it has a battered looking housing I’ve had a look on line and can’t see one that’s the same as mine . The outlet pipe has a very slight kink towards the radiator and the ones I’ve seen got straight out as per pic Some are around £8 and others are £25 but they ...

Re: Saloon interior 67

Thanks I need to change my 2 complete front seat covers and you can get a leather set for £300 for the pair However they wouldn’t quite match the rear seat as the lines go from top to bottom I could change the rear as well I suppose but would be a bit pricey for no real benefit I think I will go for...

My vinyl seats have a panel in the centre with embossed vertical lines
Is this standard ?
I’ve seen the same thing on the Newton website but I’m trying to get some leather replacements from EBay and the supplier says they should go from top to bottom on the back
