Seat differences, series 2/1000

Hi all. I have a pair of passenger seats for the front of my 1966 Minor 1000, which means neither have the adjuster handle. I picked up a cheap very scruffy drivers seat in the hope that I could transfer the covers off one of my front passenger seats onto it so I have a pair of matching seats with a...

Re: Oil light staying on

Should have a new pressure switch today, so I'll try it later if it's not raining. While it's out I'll turn the engine over by hand to see if it pumps oil out.

Water pump recommendations

I think a new waterpump is imminent on my Morris, it has signs of leaking over it, although the coolant level doesn't seem to drop.
Does anyone recommend any particular pump or supplier, or is there any I should avoid.
Thanks.
Neil.

Re: Oil light staying on

I'm hoping it's not done any damage, I did run it for a few minutes but it didn't get any louder or make funny noises. The light goes off when you remove the wire from the switch so it's not a wiring fault. I've taken the pressure relief valve out today, checked it moves freely & cleaned it, put it ...

Oil light staying on

Hi all. Had my Morris running today for the first time in almost 2 years, and it started first time! :D The not so good news though was that the oil pressure light stayed on & wouldn't go out, obviously I checked the oil level before I started it & it was fine, the light wasn't on the last time it w...

Track rod end boots.

Hi. Can anyone recommend a supplier for the little track rod end boots that aren't rubbish? I bought a new track rod end 2 years ago from Bull motif & fitted it. The car hasn't been driven since as it's been undergoing work, when I was underneath yesterday I noticed that the rubber boot on the "new"...

Rear light lens query

Hi.
Does anyone know if the late 1000 rear light lenses are handed or if they're both the same?
Thanks.

Re: Torn window rubber

Just to update, took the rear screen out again yesterday & refitted with the rubber from Baines. After leaving the rubber in a bucket of hot water for 10 minutes it went in a treat with my other half & our lad pushing from the inside & me pulling the cord. And no tears :D . Also while the weather wa...

Re: Success at last

Brilliant job. Hopefully I'll see my minor back on the road this summer, although it wont be as shiny as yours.

Re: Fitting seatbelt

I do see what you're saying but bicycles were first intended for use on the road in a very different and slower era, even before cars were invented and yet almost every family in the country allows there child to go out cycling, even encourages it.

Re: Fitting seatbelt

I agree with mrIan, as long as a decent set of belts is bolted in securely I wouldn't dream of denying my children the pleasure of a ride in the Morris. When we first got the car it had no rear belts & they were very disappointed when I said I was going to fit belts for them to wear. I would never i...

Re: Torn window rubber

Ok, new seal ordered. This time from Baines to see if it goes on any better. A friend came round this afternoon and between us we managed to fit the front chrome windscreen trim too. Successful weekend 8)

Torn window rubber

After a year or two of lack of interest when my Morris has sat under a cover waiting for me to put her back together I've finally regained my enthusiasm & got stuck back in, she's going to be on the road this summer. Today with the help of my 16 yr old lad we put the glass back in, theres still the ...

Fuel filler question

Hi all. I've just refitted the fuel tank to my Morris now all the welding is out of the way. I put a new rubber seal on the filler neck but I'm not sure if it goes in side or outside the body? I put it on the filler tube first and when pushed in it leaves 3/4 of the rubber seal on the outside so I'm...

Re: 1967 number plate

I'm sure that although the reflective white/yellow plates were introduced in 1968 they were optional until 1973 and only from Jan 1973 black/silver plates can no longer be used?
