It looks from the front the same as the correct MM S11 glovebox clock with correct face and red hands plus chrome rim but was modified from an Oxford MO Smiths car clock. Not tested so is much cheaper than those recently on ebay. Am ask...

Container of parts from 4+ Minors

I was contacted at Beaulieu Autojumble by a couple of gents from near Preston who have many parts from 4 or 5 Minors stored in a container that they wish to sell as a job lot. Maybe someone in a local branch can check it out or knows someone who might be interested. Also selling a very low mileage 1...

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...

Re: Series MM highlight carb problems?

Your spare carb looks as if it has the bracket and brass lever as used on the Series 2 version of the H1 carb.

Re: Series MM highlight carb problems?

I have rebuilt the H1 carb several times over the years for the various MMs I have owned since early 80s and none originally had a spring in them, although occasionally I have retro fitted a spring to help the piston close down better. Often it is a matter of loosening the two dashpot screws slightl...
