Re: Intermittent misfire/cutting out - advice please

Thanks to all for the input. Coil leads appear secure. No water getting onto electrics. Dizzy components look pretty elderly so will change points condensor rota HTs and cap as a matter of course. They may well have been on there since resto (14k miles ago in 1990!). Not had chance to look closely a...

Intermittent misfire/cutting out - advice please

My Moggie has been started regularly and driven approx once a month over the winter. The last two drives have revealed a slight misfire under sharp acceleration (both occasions after around 5 miles of trouble free driving from a cold start). The misfire then gets worse with intermittent loss of powe...

Re: The search for royale blue

Agree with ManyMinors. Blue Royale was offered circa 1967-1970 but only seemed to appear on Riley Kestrel 1300, very late Austin A60 Cambridge saloon (both to '68) and very early Maxi, the Mk.3 Mini/Clubman and Austin 3-litre big landcrab (all to '70). Not listed as a Minor colour at all.

Re: Spotted today.

Not exactly 'Spotted' but... 2-door saloon and van. Both maroon. Both split-screen. Both parked by the amusement park in Stourport-on-Severn. Anyone know them and the story behind them?

Re: Olwyn, my new Moggie, 1955 four door:

Looks like the original white trafficator switch is the '15 second delay' type. Switching it on winds it up rather like and old kitchen 'pinger' timer. It then unwinds itself for 15 secs after which it switches the trafficator off ... or that's the theory if I remember correctly.

Re: Olwyn, my new Moggie, 1955 four door:

Olwyn looks great. Welcome (back?) to the S.II world! I know that East Sussex Minors stock front screen rubbers, centre pillar rubbers and central trim. Needless to say they make no mention of chrome insert. Product description comes with dire warnings about the need for 2 pairs of hands and infinit...

Thanks busguy. Safe to assume a straightforward cherished transfer. It's a small 'lose end' tied up :)

Hi all. I've recently acquired a Series 2 and I'd like to find out a little of its history. The car is a black 4-door deluxe saloon. First registered 3/8/56. It's registration number used to be JMS551. The number was removed in May 2010 when an age-related' substitute was allocated. The car has a re...

Traveller HTD454K

Does anyone have current info on this car please? DVLA records show last taxed in June '87 which corresponds with the date I sold it. It was Teal Blue with Limeflower interior (and 2-tone red/beige drivers seat!). It had a fair bit of bodywork done and new paint but the underside was a sea of bodged...

I think the short letter was E and F came in August 1967. E was the short one. Jan 1 - Jul 31 1967. Changeover month was moved to August (F from Aug 1 1967) allegedly following pressure from the Motor Traders Association, in order to attract increased new sales at a traditionally 'quiet' time of ye...
