Re: Still cant get into the members section

On the old site you needed a username and password that was printed in Minor Matters and changed for every edition. On the current site you need to register with your email address and choose your own password. If you register correctly then the area is accessible (just tested it). If you get a mes...

Re: new addition to the fleet

As regards the antipodean photo posting. I think it is yet another quirk of this white elephant website. Not just this site. I have it happen in other forums too. It's usually a problem associated with photos taken on phones. I'm not consistent when using the phone in whether I take them with left ...

Re: ID plate

I wouldn't touch it with a barge-pole. Is it me or do the seats look like they've been clear lacquered? I think they might have got carried away with some of that spray that valeting people use.

Re: Bonnet Release Anti -Rattle Spring

So having no hole for the spring, but having an extra teardrop, mine now looks similar to the earlier photo of the green moggie. Just used the teardrop on the back of the bolt. 20171110_170825.jpg Tt also helps reduce the rattle where it passes through the retainer plate top grommet (Pt No: AAA1882 ...

I just thought this might be the Heater Knob with the markings on it.
But it could be anything I suppose. :wink:

Re: Jolting - where to start?

Way back in 1977, when I was serving in the RAF in Germany, the done thing was, naturally, to buy a new tax free Forces Discount car. One of my friends at the time brought a Hillman/Crysler Avenger. He got an extra discount for having one of the older Hillman badged ones with the Hockystick rear lig...

Re: ID plate

English may not be their first language, but you are right about businesses and first impressions. PS given the '65 reg would there not have been an 'elephant trunk' heater hose. I cannot see the heater clearly but it looks rather like the earlier Smiths black round one. The glove box covers also l...

You'd think someone selling as a business might give more attention to writing something legible and understandable, instead of coming across as some kid speed messaging on their phone . :cry:

Re: Bonnet Release Anti -Rattle Spring

redduster To clarify the issue is how to attach the teardrop, item 38, to the release rod, item 26? It is not actually fixed in position. The teardrop will slide along the rod, it's simply the spring pressure pulling it taught that keeps it in place; thus the tension can be adjusted . I assume witho...

Re: Bonnet Release Anti -Rattle Spring

Oh what tangents we go along.
Here's a zoomed in close up from what has become 'Photo 1'. I've highlighted the tear drop outline and the spring end, pixel by pixel.
But that's the extent of my forensic abilities.

It's definitely there :lol:

Re: Bonnet Release Anti -Rattle Spring

That'll be another hole that's not there then. Although, surprisingly, if you do a search for 'Morris Minor engine bay images' there are quite a few that don't have any anti-rattle spring fitted to the bonnet release. This one shows it reasonably clearly; although it appears to have a hole, the spri...

Re: Bonnet Release Anti -Rattle Spring

Now having the part from CW, how is the teardrop fixed to the rod? Thanks Good question! My car has a Teardrop at each end of the spring and they're both just under tension of the spring pulling the Teardrops at an angle on the rod 26, which I'm sure isn't right anyhow!! Not forgetting its only to ...

On a related security issue many of us face these days, here's a suggestion for those hard to remember PIN numbers. If you've got several cards in your wallet/purse/pocket or wherever, and you probably favour 1 or 2 of them most of the time, how do you remember those infrequently used ones (assuming...

Re: Bonnet Release Anti -Rattle Spring

The mushroom buffers at the front are still a mystery tho. Where did they come from? It looks like they fit into the pyramids. There's only one on the Passenger side, but yes, it fits nicely. :-?

Re: Bonnet Release Anti -Rattle Spring

Cheers palacebear. Reading the details on the Moss listing, the screw is only a No8 self tapper, so mine were probably removed when they did the respray and the holes are filled with paint so they never went back on. If only I hadn't refitted my glovebox liners a few weeks back, I'd take a look from...

Re: DR3A Wiper Motor Problem

Could be play in the bearings, which I assume are just phosphor bronze bushes, or misalignment of the rotor/stator in relation to each other.

Or, the alignment of the brushes, it depends on the type of noise; if it's a chattering, it could be one or both brushes bouncing as they run around the Comm.

Re: Bonnet Release Anti -Rattle Spring

Not that I wish to hijack this topic about release bar components, but I have a question about the Round Buffer #36. According to the CW website, they were fitted from '51, but my '55 doesn't have them, nor does it have any holes around that location. 20171107_181224A.jpg Can anyone confirm that are...
