Re: Circular heater

Confusinger and confusinger... I'm not sure that any standard-fit heaters had this feature ('simple doors')? That's what my Tudor has (take a look at the photo I posted above), there's a little door each side. Door open, toasted leg, door closed, demisted screen. Either/Or, not both, unless of cour...

Re: Bojo the Cloan

Anyone else notice chemists having "problems" with medicine suppliers? My latest prescription was of a cheaper brand. Unless the regulations have changed in the last few years, and I doubt they have, then if the drug is available generically, i.e. effectively out of Copyright/Trademark type control...

There is a deluxe version which case a case around it. It connects to a hole in the floor which enables air from the outside to come through the heater.
Is that the one with the vertical selector lever Car/Screen/Off on the front?

Re: Circular heater

Yes, but the OP says his heater has a "knob on the front" so I assume it is the standard Smiths round heater....... I saw that, I was just saying that mine didn't, but I knew the Smiths did, and implying that there might be others out there too as there were several makes around, because it was a t...

Re: Circular heater

There's more than one Circular heater that was used after-market in the 50s.
Mine is a Tudor and the motor in it is controlled by the separate rheostat on the left of the Speedo. The Smiths one had the knob on the Unit itself.

Weight of typical Moggie engine

OK, so with such a variety of engine sizes, I know there'll be a bit of a range, but does anyone know what sort of weight an A series engine is, when fitted with Ancillaries like manifolds, Carburettor, Dynamo.? Reason I ask is that I don't have room for one of those typical engine hoists that are a...

I've taken a video on my phone but don't know how to get it on here yet.
Videos require hosting elsewhere, e.g. youtube and a link posting. :)
That's standard for PHP Bulletin Boards as far as I'm aware, simply because of the typical file size.

Welding - Safety Alert

Most people around here that do welding are probably DIY welders, perhaps been doing it for years, or self taught by a Mate or Youtube video, so may not be aware of this new Safety Info.

Re: Rear lighting / fuel sender loom routing

Blimey! I thought they'd have been standard by then, so when did heaters become standard equipment? I suspect with the introduction of the '1000' in '56, since that was principally intended to make the model far easier to produce, with fewer variables on the assembly line, so putting a heater in ev...

Re: Rear light wiring confusion!

The Ripault stuff seems expensive: I hope its good! Last night I soldered some bullets to wires and then attempted to put them into the connectors - and blow me they wouldn't go in! As far as I'm aware, even the 'correct' female receptacle for the solid brass male bullet would be a sprung design, s...

Re: Vin number help

Hi speedo is in the centre of the dash Has no controls on the steering column there all on the dash OK, so it's a late series II then, because the early SII shared the 'behind steering wheel' position of the MM. Presumably the car has a slatted front grill, and not a 'cheese grater'? So the car is ...

There's no wiring for a heater in the loom either, which seems a bit remiss of the manufacturers. Not a major issue though, just an earth and a live feed.
Were they still only optional in 1954?

Yes
Mine is an after market addition in a '55
