Engine floor Turned-up section

Hi all, after fitting a new floor section to the engine bay I have just been informed I need to "turn up" a section so that the oil filter doesnt hit! Do I have to do this? If so could someone post a pic or some measurements of where the "turn-up" section needs to be. Thanks in advance

Re: Morris Million.

Does this not belong to one of our board members? I recall a Minor Million being obtained just last year by "Ayr41" He was based in Scotland and going off his board name I would assume he is near Ayr! Very strange coincidence if there are two Millions in the Ayr area!!

Re: Great GP at Silverstone

Hello all, It's unfortunate that the F1 hierarchy are keener on the fancy circuit trappings than the actual racing, and to some degree must take the blame for the catastrophe that has occurred with Donnington, another great track. Alec The reason that the F1 hierarchy are "keen on the fancy circut ...

Re: 1953 Morris minor pickup in Lakelands MM

Is that the place where they have a selection of "Bluebirds" cars and boats? Always fancied a trip there might have to make the effort now I know theres a Minor there! Is it a "genuine" pick up? are they not supposed to have an extra ridge along the top of the body?
