Hooray, back on the road.

Hooray, my Morris passed it's mot this morning for the first time in two years or so. The mot man said it was a cracking little car & didn't even give any advisories.
I'm thrilled to bits & hopefully can get some miles under her belt now whilst doing some other tidying up jobs as we go along.
:D :D

Re: Last Minor Ever......really ?? (Manchester)

Well, it sold for £500. Bargain for someone I think if it is what it says.
Did anyone on here get it?

Re: 2 door side glass in rear removal.

It doesn't come with it. I used a length of plastic coated washing line. It's strong, slippery & big enough not to tear the rubbers.

Re: Last Minor Ever......really ?? (Manchester)

Wish I could afford/justify it myself. I think it'd be a lovely thing to own. I hope it gets bought by an enthusiast on here & restored or preserved as it deserves.

Water pump removal

Hi all.
Is it necessary to take out the radiator to remove the water pump? The manuals all say to remove it first, is that the best way?
Thanks.
Neil.

Re: 2 door side glass in rear removal.

I recently did mine & putting the rubber on the glass & then the assy to the body worked great. The best lube I found for fitting all the rubbers to body was hellerine oil, sold for electricians to run cables through conduit.

Re: Brake Pedal recessing

Worth trying another bleed, but it sounds like the master cylinder needs replacing to me.

Re: Edd's 1969 2 door. UHU62H

It's a pity you don't know someone with a nice dry garage where you could store it for a while until you have the time/money/enthusiasm to carry on with it. It's always much harder to justify purchasing another one at a later date than it is to eventually finish one you already own ( I know from bit...

Re: Remote brake reservoir

By gravity bleeding, do you mean once the new rear cylinders are fitted just open a bleed nipple (with a pipe going into a jar of brake fluid obviously) and let the fluid run through to eventually bleed itself of air?

Re: Remote brake reservoir

Excellent, no need to lift the flooring again then to touch the master cylinder. If I ever have to replace the master cylinder I'll probably do away with the remote reservoir, but I'll keep it until then. One more daft master cylinder related question if I may: When I was checking the fluid levels t...

Re: Oil for axle

It's funny you say that. I was at Newark autojumble yesterday & a stall there was selling Castrol classic EP90 so I bought some of that to refill with instead of the EP80/90.

Remote brake reservoir

Hi all. In the next few days I'll need to bleed my brakes. A previous owner has fitted a remote brake fluid reservoir under the bonnet. Obviously I don't have any instructions for this or even know what brand it is, when I bleed the brakes do I ignore the master cylinder now & just keep the remote r...

Found them, I was looking on the outside of the hubs, didn't realise they were on the back :roll: .
