Door Latch/Striker Plate

Need a replacement for my 2 Dr saloon and ordered what I believed to be the correct one as described from ESM. Only it has comes with only one catch and not two so the door sticks out and does not sit flush with the body now. I ordered part DCH102 so could they simply have sent me the wrong part for...

Oil Leaks - What is normal

I am used to modern cars so this will probably seem a very blonde question.

Is it normal for an old car to have a permanent oil leak? I am assuming not as gaskets should contain the engine oil within the block...

Lots of looks

Well been a Minor owner for less than a week now and been out and about in her as much as I can, Zafira is parked up unused right now! One thing I have noticed is the amount of people that look as I drive past. Mostly people of my parents generation being around late 60's early 70's, so I guess a bi...

Water Ingress

:evil:

I have water in the boot and cannot fathom where it might be coming from. Do minors have a typical area for this?

Any help and suggestions welcome

Hmmm, this is interesting. Maybe because I have jumped out of my Vauxhall and into this that they feel so non existant. I appreciate 40 plus years ago brakes were very different, but she feel like hse just wont stop.

What about disc brakes, would that help and is it possible?

Fitting servo brakes

Have literally just got my Minor 1000 and only driven her in the wet, yikes the brakes don't exist!

Is it a huge job to fit a servo to the brakes or what can be done to vastly improve them.

Many thanks gents for this info.
