Re: Isofiix child seats

My Ford came supplied new with one pair of these ISOfix guides. Makes fitting a lot easier and saves from damage. Did't use them for a few years until grandkids started to arrive.

Re: Another insurance question

I’ve changed to FJ after a good quote. I think the insurers offer good premiums to attract new customers and it will then creep up in subsequent years. Shopping around for quotes and changing providers is tedious but now seems necessary. Years ago companies rewarded loyalty but now they exploit ine...

Re: Anniversary Celebration

Anyone got any idea what the turn-round is like on getting a response from the Office when applying for this?
Once your form is accepted you will be asked to phone the Derby office to make the £10 payment

Re: Another insurance question

Sorry, not heard of them, but I recently switched to FJ as they quoted about 24% cheaper than Lancaster wanted for my renewal.

Re: Spotted today.

And that's the problem with posting photo's from phones.... :cry:
I know if I do it from mine, I have to make sure I use it 'Right handed' when doing landscape photos, i.e. with the bottom of the phone to the right. I've not found an answer for portrait images.... :cry:

Re: Spotted today.

Over in Cambridge and spotted this Morris ambulance being used as a campervan.
I guess the roof might leak a bit given the tarpaulin on the top🤔

Re: Spotted today.

Near Lowestoft today (won't say exactly where for security reasons although they are in the guys front garden for all to see) and spotted 3 Fords that I think are Model A, circa 1929/30 including 2 pickups!

Re: A different question on rear lights

Although I am a novice at Minors, I've been studying my Series II quite intently to learn what differences there are from the 1000. Form the posts above, I'm pretty sure the bases you've found on ebay are for the early SII as per the Potteries link http://potteries.mmoc.org.uk/ID/Lights.htm I've scr...

The Forum that I'm a Mod on, we have a rule about making multiple posts in different Topics, which is what this OP has done. Finger (or IT) trouble to post twice in 'Mechanical' at 8:47, but then a deliberate posting in here, 'Other', at 10:26. :roll: What's needed is a nice Admin/Mod to merge the t...

Re: Towing

I picked Basil up from 2hours/80 miles away. It cost me £40 for 24hrs trailer rental. I quite enjoyed the drive with all the looks I was getting; one young lad nearly had a mishap on his tiny little 125cc-ish motorbike as he was looking at the Moggie too much! I'd be very wary of attaching a tow rop...

Re: Rear lights

Basil, my '55 SII has recently undergone some retro changes. When we brought him last year, he had : A) trafficators fitted but not connected, B) L488 type Amber indicators front/rear C) Sidelights in headlights. I've now changed this to A) enabling the Trafficators which are now fitted with flashin...

Re: 948cc Starter motor. 10 tooth or 9 tooth?

Er, no, but it wasn't intended as any sort of recommendation, more a piece of philosophical musing on why both nine and ten tooth Bendixes (Bendices?) might have been made available. I think because the engines have been used in multiple applications, such as the link I posted earlier about starter...
