Well that's one question answered, it's a smooth box.
Perhaps that's why the receipt I have from 2003 says "948/803 Morris Minor Rebuild Gearbox S/N PX2406" ... it's a 948 and 803 extension combination :)

Re: Paint code for the brown steering wheel boss

I'm doubtful that paints used for purposes other than Bodywork (and perhaps engines) actually had a company code. They needed a code to ensure that cars were the right colour after they left the production line, but given that Morris/BMC were very much an assembly plant for items made elsewhere, wou...

Re: Redundant wire from oil filter - green

I totally agree with the last 2 posts, having a wire from the alternator output terminals going anywhere other than the battery, and therefore the car's 'systems' is complete madness. Either someone has got very confused fitting the alternator modification, or at a latter date, someone has had that ...

Well the numbering is different, but that is the same illustration as appears in Section FF of my manual, with the BMC Rosette .

Further to the above I have just checked mine and it too appears to be a 1098. Casting number 12A497. Thank you.
Glad someone else has benefited from this lesson in engine numbers. :lol:

Re: painting gold seal engine

Thanks for all that info Phil It makes much more sense when put together in one place, without having to search all over the forum for it. When I get the chance, hopefully next week, I'll get the car on my ramps and take a look at the gearbox. The clutch is actually slipping a bit at the moment if I...

I would give up for a while. Try again in a day or two.
As I mentioned earlier, this message board is very fickle! I was having photo loading problems a couple of days ago just in posts, let along signature image.

Thanks Brian. I've tried that, using a link to a photo stored on Google Drive, but it won't play. It keeps saying it is unable to verify the image size.

Re: painting gold seal engine

I like your forged rockers - they appear to be Cooper S type with the wide contact pad at the valve stem end and the larger adjustment screw at the other end. Any information on them would be appreciated. Phil Phil I'm afraid I know nothing of the engines history, so I can't help with any build det...

The picture of the loom leaving the engine bay; is that the finished job?
I think that's the 'before' image.
Mike's 2nd photo shows it running down the floor between the pedals, so I guess it all comes together behind the drivers glovebox area.

Re: Rear lighting / fuel sender loom routing

That said I am trialling LED rear bulbs and will see how it goes. I have the originals (and a couple of new spares) if I decide to revert back to standard twin filament bulbs. I did say the potential for overheat was, all things considered, only a remote possibility, but the LED lamps will reduce t...

Re: painting gold seal engine

As with JOWETTJAVILIN, my engine is an 8G prefix, with the additional AD stamp on the plate. The head is 2.75" deep. Unlike his head however, I have no markings along the long sides or between the valve sets. it took me a while of dabbing oil up to eventually find the only markings are at the 2 extr...

Re: Redundant wire from oil filter - green

I guess it depends on the alternator that was fitted; I'm assuming its not the Morris original fit. According to the original manual Plate N46, the Morris fit was a 3 wire system, because it had an external Control Unit, but colours were Brown/Yellow, Brown/Green, and Brown/White. Pretty much all re...

Its interesting as both 1/2 inch NPTF and 1/2 inch BSP have 14 tpi and 1.8143mm thread pitch. But they could be slightly different diameters.
