Re: Hello from north London!

Hi Napoleon, Car not warming up - check for thermostat as other have said. If there isn't one in the housing suspect the worse and flush the system thoroughly to see what comes out. That may be enough but I would have the radiator tested by a professional. If you have a thermostat, put it in a pan o...

Re: Rocker cover labels - rivet or stick?

https://www.mmoc.org.uk/Messageboard/download/file.php?mode=view&id=7437 Hi Brian, Pop rivets were never used for this purpose. Soft copper rivets were and they would have been stamped to the rocker covers during production. They started when the 'Austin' (A series 803cc) engine arrived and carried ...

Re: Diff casing

I believe the axle casing was painted black and the unpainted alloy diff casing attached during sub assembly stage.

The alloy will need some surface protection or it will 'deteriorate'.

The Lowlight caught my eye too, however if it looks this tired on top you can only imagine what it is like underneath. :(

Re: Outer headlight rim

Hi Rob, I tried all that before I gave up. The message was there were too many pixels in my photo and that was after I resized several times.

Will have another go.

Re: Outer headlight rim

I somehow acquired 3no secondhand split rims sometime ago. All three were rechromed for a 1952 MM restoration. I kept two and only rejected the third one as the Chromers polished a small corner off the rim where the join is at the bottom of the rim. It has original screw and is in my garage somewher...

Access Issues

I am a fully paid up member ( an official of the club ) but do not have access to members area. Why would this be? And how can the situation be resolved?

Thanks in anticipation.

Re: Wiper motor

Without any details on age or past maintenance - In a wearing contest between metal and plastic materials, metal will always win. Are the wiper arms stopping in the same position when testing? I would clean the plastic gear very thoroughly and examine for any damaged or broken teeth. If found replac...

Re: Front seats

Hi there Jenny,
A photo of the front seats would help in identifying the query.
Some late 2dr saloons (mostly Trafalgar blue in colour) had a folding front passenger seat.

Re: Original Minor Matters 1978-80

I know how you feel 'Firedrake', I have a lot of the early A4 and blue booklet magazines somewhere in the loft and I too cannot get my original membership number of 2771 back! Been told that it is something to do with the computer.

It says No.

Re: split screen windscreen chrome

I am not sure if I am right but I believe the holes in the ends of the metal split windscreen trims are there so the delicate pieces could be hung up in the chroming process. They are hidden away in the final assembly.

Re: Parcel shelf ashtrays

You say that you wouldn't let anyone smoke in your car now, and neither would I, but Minors come from an era where an awful lot of Minors were smoked in especially the early models. Different days! I have owned quite a few Minors over the years and because I don't smoke I used to take out the under ...

Re: Wing replacement paint time

Personally, I would trial fit all the outer panels before painting. You can then fettle, pull, push, and bend them in to the position that achieves the best fit for your car. You can also skim fill imperfections as required at this point. Paint them off the car and final fit when dry using tape on s...
