Re: Why has Message Board Replacement been locked??

Hey,does anyone remember the last message board update? That was a bit of a nightmare! :wink: As I understand it, that was an Update to a Board that had been bastardised/butchered over the years, by people making tweaks to it without documenting what they had been doing, hence why it is in such a d...

Re: Why has Message Board Replacement been locked??

Perhaps Mike can let us know.....

....if I quote him elsewhere but then paste the quote to here so hopefully, the creaking system will flag it to him.....

This Ruddy Forum is playing up yet again. The Edit Button is not available on a post made just moments ago!!!!!!!

Here's a photo of an E Reg BTP Panda, with B&W plates, so that's '67.

Re: Wheel colour

I agree, the wheels should be silver. Also, every "Panda" car I ever saw in period was fitted with the reflective type number plates as you describe. At the time, these would have had aluminium backing plates with plastic letters secured to them and NOT the flat acrylic plates supplied now :wink: P...

Re: Car insurance when you die

As with PG, I do not believe it possible to get 'joint name' insurance, it's not like opening a bank account or getting a mortgage. I would demand to see the clause in the Policy that says it ceases on the death of the holder, rather than the end of the term of the cover. However having said that, i...

What's very strange is that I NOW cannot see your signature image in any posts in this Topic, even though I could earlier this morning.

Re: Faulty fuel pump? Options??

I'm sure this will upset many connoisseurs here, for which I apologise, but time and money dictates this project I'm afraid. Having said that, when this car is eventually trundling down the street it will look like a very nice Morris Minor, in every way. We're reviving a lovely little classic car, ...

Re: Faulty fuel pump? Options??

I wouldn't have much doubt about the claimed age of the car myself. It is fairly clear from the photograph that it has the earlier wipers and the trafficator fittings on the side panels :wink: I couldn't decide on the wipers type with the limited view of the Offside one. Also, I have no idea how lo...

I’m reinstating the inset style glove box lids to my car, but it appears I am missing the little clip that’s fixed inside the glove box at the top. Is there supposed to be a clip???? I thought the clip was on the door and it just clipped onto the edge of the hole... https://www.mmoc.org.uk/Messageb...

There's a good video of repairing a fuel pump here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oU5uLjuOQdM

You'll note that the old pump he takes apart doesn't have the diode, so although he has one on the table provided in the kit, he doesn't fit it....

Re: Faulty fuel pump? Options??

Sorry - I hate this level of pedantry, but we do need to get it right, as it has a bearing on this car. A 1960 car would not have had US-style flashing brake lights as indicators, as I believe ALL cars up until 1961 had semaphores/trafficators and NOT flashing indicators of any type - hence, the ca...

I wasn't asking for an in depth description of the myriad of potential causes.

Well, looking back through your 5 posts so far, you've not exactly told us anything about the car or yourself, so it kind of makes things a little difficult. But we'll assume it's an electrical pump as that's the usual thing, so I certainly wouldn't go rushing off to get a replacement. First off fin...

Richard, My guess is that it is a down-loaded play-back from a dash cam with all, or some, of the bells and whistles? I have a similar set of functions on the Dash-Cam in my Modern; although not being a very expensive one, I can't add a complete Reg No to mine as it only allows a Chinese/Hong Kong ...

Re: Gearbox noise (with video)

I cannot imagine anything gearbox/transmission related that would cause such a rhythmic sound at a constant speed.
I would expect the sound to be constant pitch, varying with speed, but constant when at a steady speed.

Reminds me of something more wheel/tyre related...........
