I received a nice surprise from Bath & North Somerset Council the other day, A PCN for not paying the charge after driving through Bath.
On that evening I checked the website to see if I had to pay as I was unsure as to what vehicles it applied to. Private cars are exempt and do not have to pay it told me although there could be a problem with the details on my V5 document. I thought I'd better pay just in case but it wouldn't let me. Neither the council or the DVLA could tell me what details were missing or wrong on the V5 so i'm a bit stuck as to what to notify the DVLA of if I were to send in the V5 with updated information.
Bath Council have cancelled the PCN after I challenged the PCN and sent then a few pictures of my car and the original Morgan Build Ticket. Why the couldn't have seen it was a car from the original PCN I don't know as it clearly showed me and the first Mrs. N enjoying our drive through the city.
Would anyone be able to post a picture of their V5 with address/reg/engine/chassis Nos redacted? That way I can fill in any gaps re emissions/sound levels Co2.
The V5 hasn't been updated since it left the factory in 1998!
Plus 4 Rover T16.

Morgan Three Wheeler & Super 3

I’ve also found out what some people is is a fuel pump noise, it’s actually a purge value noise caused by a kink in a pipe. The car was already booked in for this Friday to deal with it

Dear Barkbark,

Seems like the *early adopters" are all plagued with the clutch issue. Sorry to hear that but also relieved to hear it was just close to your home. I had the same thoughts because I planned a longer trip over some mountain passes in Switzerland - if the clutch went there I would have been in a much worse spot.

Good news is that after the mail to my dealer, the called me right next day to arrange pickup of the car this Friday. So let's see how they sort things out.

For all the other (concerned) readers, I have to point out that the car is really a joy to ride, especially also now with the warmer weather. Also keep in mind that maybe the forum here is not representative for all the Super 3 owners - there will sure be many "happy campers" out there that are not posting that everything is great...

Happy driving to all of you.

Hi, check the clearance at the top with the hood up, you may have to bend the wiper arm slightly to make sure it doesn't catch. I was embarrassed when I took mine to Ledgerwood because the wipers didn't work and it turned out they were just catching on the hood frame. frown[/quote]

That's good advice, when I fitted mine I tested them with the hood down and they were great, first time I used them in anger with the hood up one of the wipers jammed on the hood frame and blew the fuse. Had to drive all the way back from Goodwood with no wipers gloomy

took mine around castle combe track last year & gave it some stick ... it stunk of burning for the first few laps. I'm guessing it was burning off all the muck stuck to the engine/exhaust. fine after a few laps. gave it some stick last week up the alpine passes .. again it stunk initially, then it was fine.

Nice one! ... I love the sound of a saxaphone but have never got on with instruments you blow down ... much more of a string twanger! 🙂

My flute making/playing pal (who is annoyingly multi-instrumental) plays in a saxaphone orchestra ... they lost their bass sax player and he drew the short straw!! ... thing is enormous .. I swear it has more pipeage than a medium sized oil refinery!!

I see it as a bit like the order of ingredients in a meal.
The contents have to be listed by order of % included. The item that there is most of coming first.

Artificial is first on the list
Intelligence is only second.

False belief systems can easily be invented if you feed it a poor truth. A bit like human beings and sochul medier in that respect.

We fed one with a broad spectrum of partial truths to see if we could corrupt it and it worked. Monkey nuts in, monkey out.

That'd keep you on your toes alright ..... racing pal had a mini with all the underpinnings of a 400bhp Mitsubishi Evo under it ... even with the 4wd it was exciting! 🙂

Looks like you had a fun trip, I think that is Graham in the photo with the 3 wheeler.

I first thought you meant Perth Western Australia when you said Mammoth journey but I assume you mean Perth in Scotland.

Did you go on the club run on the 28th? .... have some old racing pals (Garry and Jackie Dickson) went in their TVR (they have a good few other interesting old cars as well ... in fact Garry might have been there in his Mk1 Cortina) .... they posted a few pics on FB but didn't spot a Morgan in any. .... it's the Fraserburgh Vintage Car Show this Sunday ... was too late to enter the Morgan (and don't really do shows but would make an exception to support my local one for fun) but will pop by and take a look as I have a few friends exhibiting.
