Re: Battery induced corrosion

Battery induced corrosion

Found an accumulation of salts (?) between the positive terminal and battery retaining clamp see pic. I’ve cleaned this up but wonder what’s causing it, no leakage from terminal or cells can be seen? Thanks John

PS it’s negative earthed

Re: MESSAGE BOARD REPLACEMENT

There are issues to be addressed and I’ve commented before on password access and what appears to be the two ‘parts’ of the system. Whilst you may have ‘something in mind’ it would be good if a requirements list could be put together by members to act as a guide for officers. I’m not talking a full ...

Re: Original reclining seat frame/drawings

Excellent thanks for sight of. Some pics would be good too particularly of the handles? Mine were missing and would like the same pattern. I’ve bought new covers made by Newton and they have the correct carpet trim to the lower rear of the squab. Thanks, John

Re: MOT Exemption

Mine has been MOT’d this year and will be every year. I’m good mechanically and electrically but don’t have the knowledge regarding chassis/bodywork. The answer of course is to replace rust damaged areas when they appear but I’m not always sure what is load bearing and what is not. Happy Christmas o...

Speedos for classic Mini etc

Minispares have different types of speedo available including gearbox driven types. I particularly like the magnolia version. I wonder if anyone in MMOC has fitted these to a Morris Minor assuming that’s possible? Pics shown below out of interest. Also the market for Morris Minor spares seems differ...

HS2 twin carb float chambers

It seems to me that the difference between H2 and HS2 carbs is the float arrangement. For HS2 float chambers are they interchangeable or are they handed? Cheers, John

Re: engine id plate rivets

My order from Minimail arrived today and I fitted the engine code plate this pm. Came with two twirly rivets. I was able to locate it centrally and away from the old ground down rivets using a 5/32” drill.
Bit of a faff as no space for a handrill and so used a flexi-shaft. Very pleased see pic 👍

Re: Smiths Emission Control Valve (ECV)

I started this thread as I wanted to use a combination of an HS4, 1275 mini cast manifold and the flat round air cleaner plus an ECV. All of the latter (excepting the ECV) came from our old 1275 GT and would like to use them again. There isn’t enough room for the emission control valve so have used ...
