Re: Oil filter housing query

Hi Phil.
Thanks for that, I've just measured the depth of my oil filter mounting though and it's 74mm deep so allowing for the width of the nut/washer and the bit that screws into the block I'm guessing they should be about 100mm long?

Oil filter housing query

Hi. I know it's the opposite of what most people do, but my Morris came fitted with spin on oil filter conversion and I want to convert it back to the original replaceable element type. I've got an original housing etc but I believe the mounting studs to the engine are a different length. Can anyone...

Re: Brakes

My last morris was fitted with discs & no servo.
I took them off and fitted standard 8" drums and they were an improvement :)

Re: Rust spots

Clean it back to bare metal with an abrasive, kill the rust with Jenolite or kurust or similar and then a decent anti rusting primer & paint. Sounds long winded but its a quick job really.

Testing fuel pump

Hi all. I've just picked up an original SU fuel pump, obviously before fitting it or putting it in the boot for a spare I want to test it. I touched the base to one battery terminal and the stud at the top to the other (with a length of wire) and it just gives one click. Is that correct or should it...

Re: New here with a tech question - Brake & Clutch Pedal

That's right it's just held in with screws, although they can sometimes be a bit of a pain to get undone.

Re: New here with a tech question - Brake & Clutch Pedal

Hi & welcome.
Yes, one pivots on a sleeve on the others shaft. Squirting some lube in there and working it a bit should get it moving freely again. If I remember correctly though you have to just remove the transmission tunnel (under the carpet) to get access to them.

clutch compatability.

I bought a job lot of spares recently that included some of the small dia flywheels and clutches to suit the earlier 1000s. My car us a 1098 so they're no use to me. Does anyone know if they're the same as mini 1000's? My friends got one and I wondered if they'd be any good to him.
Thanks.

Re: Synthetic oil

I've never seen synthetic 20/50 so I'm afraid it's likely to be the wrong grade.
Maybe you could phone them first to enquire and then drive it back in to them when they can confirm they've got the correct 20/50 mineral oil & filter to put in?

Re: Breather question.

The idea of drilling and tapping the inlet manifold is a little scary.
How does the pcv work? Would there be any advantage to fitting one inline between the bean tin/rocker cover and carb/air filter?
Thanks.

Re: Breather question.

As I don't have the right bits for a pcv type would it be an advantage to make sure my bean tin and hose are clear and also fit a rocker cover with a breather connected to the bean tin hose with a t-piece so that both the bean tin and rocker cover vent back into the air intake?
Thanks.

Breather question.

My old 1968 minor had a breather pipe from the rocker cover to the air filter. The 1966 saloon I have now doesn't have a pipe from the rocker cover, just a bean tin shaped object on the side of the engine with a pipe coming off it to the air filter. Should it have a breather from the rocker cover to...

Carpet colour question.

Hi.
My 1966 saloon is smoke grey (pale blue), the seats are light blue. What colour should the carpet be? Dark blue or light blue?
Is it important to have underlay fitted underneath the carpets? At the moment there isn't any.
Thanks.
Neil.
