Re: eBay Scammers

Forgot to say - Ebay didnt seem particularly concerned when I spoke to them this week. If I was to include my email address in any of my listings on ebay they would withdraw my listing immediately and give me a right bo*****ing. Is it an ebay insider trying to boost eby vehicle listings?

Re: eBay Scammers

They were at it again last week including several Morrises. I decided to string the fraudster along to see what I could find out and got the following reply from jjss8882@gmail.com. He attached several photos of the restoration of a green supposedly Engineers Van but woud not give the registration n...

Paul Beck retired earlier in the year and Vintage Supplies was sold to new owners now based elsewhere in the UK. Maybe he will now have time to finish the restoration of his S11 Van.

Re: ..and I thought all Morris Minor drivers were nice chaps

ALL 4 WERE IN NORFOLK ? The local police have uncovered several cannabis factories in the last few weeks in houses and redundant farm buildings throughout Norfolk. Has Norfolk become the cannabis growing capital of the UK ? I did hear of a local ex Minor owner who was done for growing cannabis seve...

Re: Lowlight saloon on ebay

Does not show on DVLA Vehicle check so no value to number. Original Oxford number as well from late 49 early 50. I had OWL on a Oct 49 Tourer several years back.

Re: Outer headlight rim

John

There were some screw type ones on there but guess must have gone. I found the original ones off my MM in the garage last week. Need rechroming as I replaced them with new ones.

Did you contact Gary Booker re the MM water pumps and are you coming over next month for the NEC show?

Re: ADVICE ON SERIES 2 WINDSCREEN WIPER MOTOR NEEDED

Just a bit of an update in case it helps others. I got the 1000 style mount but talking to a friend, its still is going to have contact without incorporating that style of bush or trying to modify for width etc. I am sure it works fine and maybe it doesn't have any more vibration and probably be ha...

Re: Series MM oil pump

The ex-Centurion Tank ones would be alright, if you can find one. I bought a set of gears for a pump a few years ago. You could also buy the bush and reamer to change the shaft many years ago. Hard to find these days. Morris 8 gears might be available? Centurion tank engine pump runs at a much high...
