Re: 1958 charging problem

Welcome to the forum, Tim! I'm also a relative newbie to the sport of Morris Minor refurbishment and there's a steep learning curve for sure but I'm sure you'll find the club an invaluable source of information. My car also has a dynamo but fortunately mine seems to work just fine although there wer...

Re: Split-screen chrome surround on eBay??

Well I get the rarity and demand but I've seen previous auctions for these in a similar condition go for half that, so I'd say someone got a raw deal this time around. Still, if they're willing to pay that then good on them. Pity I wasn't on the lookout for a set when the cheaper ones were sold. :cr...

Re: Split-screen chrome surround on eBay??

Did anyone see the split screen surround that just sold on fleabay? I was watching the auction in the hope of bagging it for my car but it ended up selling for £160 plus £10 shipping! Madness. 😮

Re: How many younger four door 'Cheergraters'?

I wasn't sure if the Series 2 register was still going. I emailed them my details a few weeks ago but never received a response.

Re: How many younger four door 'Cheergraters'?

Well I have a 2 door cheesegrater no. 239154. Do they use the same numbering system as the 4 doors? I mean, 2 and 4 door models mixed together on the same production line?

Re: Glove box emblem from early type dashboard

Thanks for the offer, George. It looks like you have the earlier metal type emblem rather than the later beige plastic one I'm looking for. Thanks for the kind offer though. 😊

Glove box emblem from early type dashboard

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone happened to have a spare plastic Morris emblem/badge to fit the glove box lid of a Series II Minor (early style dashboard)?
Mine is missing and it's a tough old thing to find a replacement!

Thanks,
Chris.

Yes that's exactly what I'm looking for but I don't think those particular ones are still available.

Re: Series II Classifed ad...

Yes I noticed that myself.
Chrome inserts are certainly a problem, at least that's the main thing I'm having difficulty sourcing for my SII. That and a missing Morris emblem from the glove box lid!

Re: Front brakes seizing after a short drive.

Thanks Phil, that's good advice. I like the idea of using a piece of flat bar to simulate the position of the floor panel!
I did check the condition of the pedal return spring and it looks to be fitted correctly. 👍

Re: Front brakes seizing after a short drive.

FIXED! Thanks to philthehill who was pretty spot on with his suggestion. It was indeed that the piston in the master cylinder wasn't fully retracted when the brake pedal was released. Whoever fitted that new master cylinder (just before I bought the car) adjusted the operating rod for the correct am...

Well I'd definitely be interested in buying a new set of split screen chrome pieces if anyone succeeds in getting them re-manufactured.

Re: Another dodgy minor on fleabay....

Mine has a slight lean to the right as well. More down to poorly adjusted torsion bars than rot though. I should have called her 'Eileen' 😄

Re: Front brakes seizing after a short drive.

Thanks Phil, yes that sounds like a very likely candidate based on what's happening. I'll definitely have to do a bit of research on that. 👍
