Re: Jacking points / axle stands

I would personally only raise a car off the ground to preserve the tyres, but if they are shot already?

Re: Spare tyre/wheel-does anyone not carry one?

I have bigger wheels/tyres on my minor and have also got the same size as a spare. I accommodated it in the usual place but raised the shelf as required.
Works well but obviously lose a bit of boot space although it's never been a major problem.

Re: Identify clock

My dash clock didn't come from an MM but you would have to look hard to notice it wasn't genuine!
I think similar clocks were fitted to some BMC vehicles of similar vintage and believe that's where mine came from. I did some post's on it when it was installed.

Re: Morris minor half shafts

I put an additional screw fixing in the half shafts!
I did it because I didn't like the idea of the O ring opening up the joint to the hub, seemed to tip it out of square which would the reveal an oily joint.
I realise it's all held together once the wheel nuts are tightened up.

Re: Series MM Twin H1 Carbs

Quite a find!
I bought a pair of (I was told) Sprite H1's years ago for my sidevalve and they had the angled floatchambers consequently I made up a pair of independent manifolds to support them at the correct angle.
I think I had a bit of a post going at the time, a few years ago.

Re: protecting bare metal.

Bondaprimer - good stuff, I used it, it has a good amount of solids in it which flatter well.
Don't see it so much as you used to though?

Re: Horn Tuning

I have fitted a pair of 'twin tone' horns, I salvaged many moons ago from a Humber Super Snipe I think and they sound - loud and wonderful! I think you will find the tone cannot be altered, the adjustment is for making the horn function properly - as it's adjusted you will hear a change to the quali...

You're right - that number doesn't work!
Can't even find it myself now - Culinaire tin openers but not the same design as ours, it was there last night - honest!

Re: Tin opener.

At last, a useful answer!! We bought our tin opener probably 20 years ago and it's still as good as the day we got it - most modern ones seem rubbish in comparison. Made by Mike & Kremmel Ltd called 'Lift Off' mostly made of plastic with stainless steel bits where required. Did a bit of research and...

Re: Helicoil help - front damper mounting

Without going out to have a look do I remember a large hole at the back area of the cross member?
Enough to feed a nut/washer up.
Or have I got it wrong! (probably)

Re: blocked engine drain tap

What about the 'water less' product that lasts indefinitely!
Can't think of the name at the moment but when I looked into it I think I was looking at about £45?
But if it lasts forever?

Re: Fuel pump

Think you will find that's the drain for if (when?) the diaphragm leaks - normally just a hole?
