Re: Clattering noise

I'm just amazed at anyone wanting to try taking their Moggie through the water in the first place. Taking any vehicle through water that is deeper than the exhaust outlet is a risky business, it only has to stall and you risk sucking water back up into the engine.... In any flooded area where you do...

Re: PETROL

Hmm...just to bowl another googly, what do you all think about adding redex when you fill up? The formula seems to have changed a few years ago so it is thinner and less oily now. I believe it is marketed more as a fuel system cleaner than upper cylinder lubricant. But, it won't do any harm. I don'...

Re: Second hand driver seat frame and banjo driving wheel search

Which are you, 5'9" or 1.8m? 5' 9" When I use the 'convert meters to feet' function on google it converts 1.8m to 5' 9"?? I just tried it again and came up with the same result...….

I sent you a PM in May, as you are one of the moderators, about a cluster of my posts, but you are not reading your PMs - please do so.

Re: Second hand driver seat frame and banjo driving wheel search

PS: 1.8m equates to 5' 9", which is what I am, I put my seat back on the adjuster and find that a perfectly comfortable driving position, so once this has been resolved for you I feel confident you will have no problem driving your Morris comfortably.

Re: battery terminal cup connectors

Ahhh, but then if the authorities finds out, it could end up with your property being listed as 'contaminated' and you with a whole heap of trouble.

Imagine if you have an old Fire Blanket at home, perhaps in the garage, how do you dispose of it.... It's all completely Barking Mad!

Hi, Of more concern, health wise, I would have thought, is the asbestos heat shield underneath our cars, between the exhaust and the front passenger floor. Admittedly it mostly gets damp and covered with oil, which would suppress any dust in normal circumstances, however what about if you need to r...

Re: 1968 Traveller for restoration

Hi Mike Well the 1st thing is to get some photos. Just because the tyres are flat & perished, doesn't mean they wouldn't hold enough air to push/pull it out for some photos. Don't inflate them too much, just about 8-10 PSI should be enough to see if you can roll it. Chances are the brakes will be ru...
