The engine is a 1098cc unit.

The ribbed gearbox is for a 1098cc unit as well. The part number stamped on the first motion shaft will confirm the vehicle origin.
Thank you! Sorry for the delay - I missed the notification.
In laws are moving imminently so these are now going for free!

...are you able to turn the engine, with the spark plugs out and using a starting handle or socket on the starter dog, in other words is it free or seized up??
You're quite right, unfortunately I'm not near enough to it to find out, but will endeavour to do so shortly.

Engine and Gearbox

Hello, I sold my last Minor a few years ago and have been reminded by my in-laws that I still have an engine and gearbox laying around in their garage near Hadleigh in Suffolk. I bought them in an unknown condition may years ago as spares, just in case, and thought I'd offer them for sale on here be...

Re: Temperature OK?

Hi Marky,

Yes, it's an 82 degrees thermostat.
My main worry is the large difference in temperature showing on the gauge recently compared to 3 months ago. I can't remember experiencing this before in previous years.
The jam thermometer, hopefully, indicates that everything's ok.

Temperature OK?

Hello all, I fitted a temperature sender to my top hose during the winter and for the next few months the temperature reading on my Smiths guage (which doesn't show any numbers) never really got much further than the C mark. Now that the weather is warmer the temperature guage is regularly going pas...

Re: radio / ipods

If you never use the radio you can just fit a headless amp under the dashboard and plug your ipod directly into it. Nicely hidden and a good sound. It's what I do in mine. I open up the glove compartment and the player rests on the lip of the open flap. I use my phone as the mp3 player and it has th...

You're right - in fact, the replacement springs didn't have rubber round the clips at all.

Re: Rear Spring Replacement

They should indeed have 5 leaves. I would have thought 7 would make the ride a bit bumpy. I've just done my springs and have used poly bushes simply because they're supposed to be longer lasting. I had rubber before, although they were slightly perished, and I was a bit concerned that the poly bushe...

Re: Flooding

All seems fine now - I gave it another clean adjusted the timing and mixture and it's running better than ever.
Sadly the car came with the blue pump, but it seems to be working ok.
Thanks for your help.

I sometimes use a hydraulic jack pushing the end of a spanner to start really stuck nuts and bolts.

Re: Flooding

I should explain a bit better. I could smell petrol the other day and went to pull over, as I slowed up the car stalled. I opened the bonnet to see a puddle of petrol: a big leak. I removed the chamber lid, cleaned up the valve as best I could and went on my way, all seemed fine for the remaining mi...

Re: Flooding

I've got one of those pumps with the blue cap too.

I didn't realise they clicked even when full. I'll stick my finger over the end to make sure.

Perhaps the flooding this time round was due to my messing around with the mixture.

Re: Flooding

Funny you should say that, I fitted the new float needle and the brass barrel thing today and it still flooded. I guess it must be a leaky float or it may need adjusting even though the gap appears to be correct and there's no petrol swishing around inside the float. It only clicks once every 5 to 1...
