  1. Forgot the link https://www.swva.co.uk/classic-car/morris-1800-1970/
  2. P.S. Not heavy duty stuff but OK for light general work.
  3. Hi Graham I use this company for various bits of garage equipment, alway good to deal with and I’ve never had any problems. No connection, just a happy customer. https://www.sgs-engineering.com/air-tools/cut-saws-grinders
  4. My next tasks are to replace the steering column bushes with uprated, LED bulbs for the dash instruments, new oil pressure gauge pipe, and new poly seals for the top of the trunnions as the rubber ones only lasted a couple of years. Was meant to do the at the beginning of the year but had problems with fuel pressure, sorted that out and then the bloody head gasket went.
  5. Hi Paul I may have a spare one if needed, it was off my 72 CP.
  6. Happy Birthday Roger, hope you had a great day.
  7. TRR forum seems to be up now with a very similar format to this forum.
  8. Wayne put this link in a post about lunchtime today:- https://www.tr-register.co.uk/article/2018/09/0157/TR-Register-Forum-planned-works Cheers Kev.
  9. Hi Darren There will be a little seepage of fuel but it doesn’t pour out. There is the same type strainer in the fuel pipe to metering unit too. I have the Lucas pump and there is one there too (you have the Bosch type pump so unlikely there’s a strainer there) which collapsed and restricted the fuel flow which made my car stop. Good luck in finding your problem. Could you borrow a pressure gauge from any one local? All the best Kev.
  10. Yes that’s the PRV. There is a little plastic strainer inside there and probably could do with a clean. Cheers Kev.
  11. + 1 for timing, making sure the dizzy clamp is tight. Also could be plugs especially if NGK.
  12. Hi Hamish. Thanks I’ll carry on with the GB40 then. I have taken my gearbox in and out seven times in the last 4 years (Sticky clutch and various Gearbox, Overdrive issues) on my own but I found it useful to have a ratchet strap from the roof truss via 5’ scaffold pole and around the prop end of the gearbox just to support the weight slightly when pushing the gearbox to the engine. Cheers Kev.
  13. Hi Hamish I am interested to know what gearbox oil Peter recommended to you as when he rebuilt my gearbox (3 times) he recommended Penrite GB40 but I’ve heard that he’s recommending something different lately. Of course what I heard may be completely wrong. Did you have the uprated layshaft with extra bearings? Cheers Kev.
