Re: Rocker nut thread?

My cars 1966 & the rockers are kind of pressed steel so I guess they're the 1/4 unf, if the originals were high tensile then I suppose it's not ok to replace with a standard 1/4 unf nut.

Rocker nut thread?

Hi all.
Adjusting my valve clearances yesterday & one of the locknuts on a rocker has a stripped thread. Are they 1/4" unf? And are they a special nut or will one that fits do the job?
Thanks.
Neil.

Re: the chinese way?

Wow, that's shocking.
It'd be interesting to split an original and see what's inside one of those.

Re: Fuel gauge faulty

For safety's sake I'll wait until I've used half a tank before I remove the sender.
Do you know what the gasket is made of? Is it something I need to buy before taking it off in case it tears or is it something I can make out of cork or thick gasket paper?

Re: Fuel gauge faulty

It's not always going to the same position but just doesn't go beyond half. I first put approx. half a tank of fuel in and it went to half & gradually fell back as it should with use to just under a quarter. I then filled it up & it only registered half and as yet hasn't started to drop so I'm guess...

Fuel gauge faulty

Hi. The fuel gauge in my 1966 minor was working fine when I last used the car two years ago but now I've just got it back on the road it only goes up to half when the tank is filled up. I had the tank out while I was sorting the car out & painted it but as far as I remember I didn't remove the sende...

Re: breather pipe from air cleaner to engine

I had one of those inline filters on my last Morris when I got it & it led to fuel vaporising when it was hot, definitely best removed.

Re: Correct sills !!

They don't want sealing. A slight gap allows air to circulate to keep the sills dry inside. It'd be worth taking them off though to examine the sills underneath & apply some anti-rusting treatment.

Re: Seatbelt puzzle – where are yours anchored?

It wouldn't be difficult to be thinner than me :lol: . Also the originals I imagine would have been fixed belts rather than inertia reels so may have had more adjustment?

Re: Correct sills !!

The bits that you can see there are just bolt on covers over the sills.

Re: Hooray, back on the road.

That's bad news. But if today was anything like Sunday you didn't miss anything. I've been the last few years on the Monday & it's been really good, lots to see and a decent autojumble. But on Sunday the turnout of cars was very disappointing & most of what was there was modern Japanese stuff along ...

The dealer responsible for the really poor work previously on my car came from Bristol area I believe, not sure exactly Ware-abouts, never been.

I've bolted my buckles to the flat floor in my 2-door in exactly the same place as yours. Mine are too short too :roll:

Yes, my car came with stacks of receipts for work done at Wares before I got it. I've spent the last 18 months putting it right :cry:

Re: Water pump removal

Thanks for the replies chaps. I did the job this afternoon, I did remove the radiator because I thought it'd be a good opportunity to give it a good flushing through while it was off. The job went fine & fitted new thermostat & housing, silicon hoses & fan belt too before filling with fresh coolant,...

Re: Hooray, back on the road.

Yay, a good day for mot's all round then. I've done 50 miles in it today already with some trepidation.
Might be brave enough to try taking it on a 70 mile round trip to Thoresby classic car show tomorrow.
