We though that perhaps a pub on yours or Mikes door step for a change. After all if you both drive all that way its only fair thet we could do the same one evening ;-)

Lets stick with the Cricketers this week and perhaps we can come up with a pub near Ringwood next week?

I was the second car that slipped past... but to be fair you were still indicating right and there was plenty of room ;-)

Yeah we did comment in my car what people must think as 6 mogs drive past. I will get a piccy up later today I hope.

Its the marina engine, but does seem to have larger carb and mini air box, so its a bit of mix and match under the bonet

But either way you welcome to peer under the bonet on Thursday for some ideas on how the oil cooler is fitted.

I have a oil cooler fitted on my 1275. No idea how, as was done before I owned her. But you're more then welcome to stare under the bonnet or crawl under her at next weeks SADMOG meet to get some ideas perhaps. See you there Thursday, oh and if you can remember the number plate backing plate for me ...

none at all, you can keep it on.

They are often not fitted to 1300 engines as some of the cars that carried them had no place to put a starting handle in.

Correct, this is a starting handle dog.

To put it in you will need to slacken off the fan belt remove the bolt holding the lower pully, replace with this and tighen the belt back up.

my car has a key switch to cut the battery so that nothing works once its removed. Its the sort of switch normally found on a boat for isolation, handles 100A so more than enough and it fits neatly out of the way under the dash. I've seen them on ebay for a few quid, even new I would expect them to ...

sounds a little like my car ;-) I've still got the old heater cable and control, but am in the process of freeing it as it was stuck solid and a brass tap had been used in its place. I have a new control valve ready to fit. I know it may not be as reliable, but I want to be able to turn the heat off...
