It’s clear that not all forum members have managed to regain access following last week’s ‘outage’. If this applies to you, please email the webmaster at email@example.com and every effort will be made to assist.
A series of six technical articles written by Peter Hills are all now resident in the Technical section within the Member’s Area of the website. Peter is best known in Minor circles for his heroic restoration of a 1929 Minor Tourer that had been long abandoned in the African bush. The articles, which were first published in the Vintage Minor Register magazine, cover the following topics: Returning brake drums to standard, Upgrading the clutch thrust race, Refurbishing the 29-31 Smiths speedometer, LED replacement lighting, Reconditioning the OHC Minor dynamo and Vintage car hibernation. Grateful thanks goes to Peter for permitting their availability to Network members.
There was a small Minor contingent at the 2018 LC&ES Summer Rally based upon Church Stretton in Shropshire. Peter Stubberfield‘s beautiful 1929 Tourer (VF 6700) was present as was Clive Hamilton-Gould‘s 1930 version (DG 325). Ben Maeers was also present in Minor Tourer PG 5664. The three images of VF 6700 appear courtesy of Mike Tebbett. Find them here.
A further ‘how to’ guide by Joe Rayner has be added to the site, this one entitled: ‘A guide to the replacement of Minor wheel studs and repair of a damaged hub‘, its title telling you all you need to know. It can be found under ‘Axles’ in the Members technical area.
The September 1937 edition of Morris Owner was the source of another useful SU carb tips advertorial, this one entitled ‘Dirt & water in the carburetter’. A PDF of the document now resides in the Technical Bits section of the Member’s Area.
