Re: the leak

Ah, I replaced the stat when I bought the car 7 years ago, it didnt occur to me that I should replace the housing at the same time, even though as a matter of course I replaced the water pump too as it and the radiator were old and very much tired out. Getting the stat cover free then was quite easy...

Re: the leak

Well yes and no, I use antifreeze but not in any measured way, remiss I know. It does always have antifreeze but I think its the original stat cap from 1965, I had to replace the water pump when I first got the car so for similar reasons should expect this. Anyway it was easy enough to replace with ...

Re: Dodgy power tools

Dont let age put you off either. The last few decades saw the Black and Decker range made in Spennymoor in co.Durham. The factory sadly is no more, production was moved to the Czech Republic, the quality of the tools made from the 70s onwards is very good, I have a late 70s hammer drill that refuses...

Re: Fuel overflow

Just a word of advice on those adjustable clips.
Jubilee are one of the better manufacturers, but that style of clip is never concentric, the best bet although it is not easily removed without destroying it and needing another clip, is a correctly sized double eared O clip, crimped on with pliers.

Re: Tyre advice needed

Funny how times change, I as a yoof, was always told to avoid Japanese bridgestone, because they use a harder compound and dont grip well, thats why they are so cheap. Now I visit my local tyre dealer and cant help but smile when he says, bridgestone are the second most expensive tyre available from...

Re: Why didn't the 1275 go into the Minor from 1966?

I wonder if the reason the 1275 engine was not fitted was nothing to do with mechanical parts, they could have been modified alright. The Minor had its place in the market, it has always been targeted at the market segment of family run around,solid, reliable, cute but not apart from Pat Moss,s ecce...

AA pre delivery inspection

I read with interest a locked post regarding an unhappy purchaser of a Morris minor, as I cant post there due to the lock I will advise here.
Prior to purchase get the AA to look at it, its not expensive, in fact its priceless.

I did wonder why such a prodigious provider of solutions did not get a mention in the club magazine upon his sad departure. Regardless of course of his membership status, I do think an article perhaps including interviews with members of his family could easily provide a double centre spread of high...

Re: Jolting - where to start?

I do like happy endings.
I attended a course with work once, the instructor suggested we should all make a fool of ourselves at least once a day, I remember thinking if only I could limit it to once a day :D
