Sandun Referring to Burlen's diagram , see link http://sucarb.co.uk/su-fuel-pumps-spares/single-lp-pumps-kits/electric-fuel-pump-dual-polarity.html There are two gaskets that could be described as " diaphragm sized ".

Re: Morris Minor 1000 (factory convertible) restoration

It looks as though the interior of the chassis legs need a good scrape out of loose rust flakes … to see "what you got ". The nearside one is looking a bit filly on the top inboard edge. Not clear from the photos as to whether the leg has had some attention in the past The shot inside the engine bay...

Re: Morris Minor 1000 (factory convertible) restoration

Andy Welcome to the Forum. If you acquired the convertible for free ( " cost us nothing " ) you're a very lucky man. Time to buy the Lottery ticket I'd suggest ! The car certainly better than the average and it should make a nice little car when you've finished. Thanks for sharing the piccies and vi...

Re: Glass Channel Felt

I guess a lot will depend on the general state of the door / window trim generally. Will you be having to replace any / all of the rubber seals / mouldings on the main window and quarterlight any time soon ? If you answer is yes , because of perished rubber , then a complete strip down is the only w...

Re: Clicking/knocking noise

Pete Replace the fuel filter first , if it's clogged up. It will certainly be strangling the supply of fuel to the carb and therefore be making the pump work harder. And it's cheaper than a new pump ! Give that a go. Opinions vary on the after market fuel filter application. My take is that it is su...

Re: Clicking/knocking noise

Pete , Do the test first and see what the result is. Can we assume that the car is 1098cc Negative earth ? Is it an original pump on the vehicle or has it been replaced at some time in it's life ? If original then unleaded petrol " may have done for it ". A new pump will have a diaphragm and washers...

Sandun ,
If you follow the link on the Technical Pages of Burlen's website there are a number of pages on dismantling a

Re: Su fuel pump parts

Sandun, The picture you show appears to have an aftermarket set of points fitted. Of all the pumps I have seen / worked on none have had the tiny little metal tang. Burlen who sell original SU fuel pump parts don't seem to have this part include. Photo attached : - http://sucarb.co.uk/twin-point-roc...

Re: Hub caps

I reckon for hub caps you can tell the difference (blind folded probably ) between an original and a new one by the weight alone. The older one will be thicker metal and therefore heavier. Get yourself a quote or two for re-chroming and then compare. If you have other stuff for re-chroming .eg. bump...

Re: Metal thickness

Unless you feel you have a real need for " gasless " , I would opt for gas MIG welding every time for car body work.Argon mix gas will deliver the cleaner weld. I wore out my old SIP gas / gasless Mig welder after 25 years and had to retire it after sterling service. I did replace it with another ga...

Re: Metal thickness

Sheet steel....First a warning , avoid galvanized steel - it gives off poisonous fumes....so even if it's offered free decline. Try and pick up sheet steel off cuts from a Metal Fabricating Firm on the local Trading Estate. " I just need a few off cuts , as I'm teaching myself to weld and I've got t...
