Re: White Morris Pick-Up truck XUW 945

I had a friend into classic fords and he used to use a motor cycle chain around the axle connected to a point in his garage floor, not the easiest thing to have to fit when you park, and on occasion it even fooled him as he tried to drive away.

Re: Any welding tutorials or tips ?

I think i should be ok if its flat on the bench, The biggest improvement i have made was changing my old mig welders gas from Co2 to argo shield, So now with the new welder i should even be better, However good ingredients do not always make a nice meal... :roll:

Re: Oil filter housing parts

Ok, I think what i have is the center oil filter as pictured on this diagram
http://www.morrisminorspareparts.co.uk/ ... il-filters and parts 5,6,7,8 and 20 are missing allowing the oil to bypass the filter, I guess i can make up some of the parts from bits till i find spares.

Re: Oil filter housing parts

Thanks thats helpfull, but i think i might have a mix and match going on, the big washer that goes on the botton of the oil filter will only half cure my problem, i think there should be abother one on top and maybe some seals, it might be easier if i take some picture and upload them, thanks again ...
