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 ...

Re: beware when purchasing.

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.

Re: Seatbelt puzzle – where are yours anchored?

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:

Are we allowed to ask who the well known Morris minor dealer was?

Re: rust on front of chassis leg

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.

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.

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.
