It does make you wonder, nice that they included a compartment under the bonnet for your incontinent relative though complete with a drain plug grin2

Found this which may be of interest, I note the mention of staking the thread to the nut, which seems a tad rudimentary compared to the use of a tab washer or castellated nut etc...?


This IS a differential only without the axle shafts. So no wheel bearing setups on this.

When a crush sleeve is used, typically you never reuse the crush sleeve, buy a new one and then crush the hell out of it while all the time monitoring the resistance to rotational torque. The only time you can get a way with reusing the crush sleeve is when replacing the pinion seal. In that case you scribe the pinion nut to the pinion shaft threads, remove and replace the seal and then retighten back down until the scribe mark lines up again. Theoretically you've not "changed" the pinion preload in doing it this way.

I'll take a look at the BB rebuild and reassemble thread and learn something I'm sure. Thanks for posting it.

Have you though of contacting Morgan as they may keep records of individual car specs?

Yep, strange take on stickering up with a montage of road sign symbols like 'caution children crossing' ?

IIRC, wasn't there some strange sponsorship deal with some Nissan tub with a Judd engine some years ago ?

Drove my 1980 +8 through a ford every day on my commute from near Stourbridge to Stoke on Trent. One day, underestimated the depth and had a bow wave come back along the bonnet and hit the windscreen! Luckily I think little water made it under the bonnet before I was out the other side. Big, high mounted Rover airfilter probably helped too.

Why not a "Blog". I have thought of starting and maintaining a "Blog" called "According to Button". I would just write what I think I know with pictures etc. on any subject, model, year I chose. So Mr. W could do the same only it would be titiled "According to Mr. "W". In fact Mr. "W" could write a rebuttle or even embelish on Mr. Button's words if He chose. I read Mr. "W's" book but as a US'er I do not have much experience with the later models. What I do know I get from "Talk Morgan". However I have a lot of experience with the 1960's +4. Also I have developed a lot of unconventional remedies for many problems I have encountered over the years and ones I have learned from the Northern California Hotrodders as some call them. I have tried to learn from "GOMOG" and wonder just how much effort it takes to do this. I almost always have to Email Lorne to find the information I want on GOMOG. Not sure I want to be "on call" like Lorne is. Also "Legal Liability". I have assets. I don't want to loose them.

Hello 1560, we have 3, the green +8, from1990 ,the blue +4 (for my wife ) and the ARP4.The black with red wheels ( from the avatar) was our previous, replaced for the blue one.Luddite, there are more ( most older) in that color. When we saw it first advertised, we thought it was to much( the colors) but in live it is even much better.

I enquired today of the main Morgan Dealers in the States (thanks Tcherek) as to whether they had any stock of the wheels and sadly they don't, I didn't check with Dennis Glavis though.

There are a few LHD one's out there for sale with the KO alloys if that is an option.

I felt sorry for Le Clerc as he is the ascendant star whereas Vettel is very much a spent force these days and makes far too many errors at this level of the sport.

Hamilton acted and responded with consummate professionalism, you don't have to like his lifestyle off track but I do admire his true sporting spirit and sense of fair play. He is a shining example to the up and coming youngsters to the sport that tend to be spoilt kids in general.

Max has matured nicely and now managing to convert the skills to wins as well, he drove a blinder as did Albon, Christian must have been chuffed to bits.

A great race and I didn't mind who won there were some great overtakes there.

As for any of the multitude of variables relative to ECU programming possibilities..... I am not the one to spread any enlightenment... If modern engines monitoring and control systems have a means of detecting crankcase pressure and the programming expects/requires negative pressure, then it seems possible your filter could perhaps confuse the ECU, if not now, perhaps in time...?

As an aside, while walking round the rear of the pits with a Ford development engineer in 2002, I had said that the Corvette created quite a spectacle as it popped and banged spitting flames approaching the Dunlop bridge, he smiled and said that that is a waste of fuel and the explosions create stress in the exhaust system, both of which you do not want in a race that lasts 24 hours....listen to the Audi when you see it next entering the same corners.... I did, and when the driver lifted off, the Audi was almost silent.... A lesson learned. With today`s electronically controlled injectors, I would be surprised if they were supplying fuel to the cylinders when the accelerator potentiometer value is being read as in the process of deceleration...? As for the stepper motor on the throttle plate having a particular default position to keep it fractionally opened on lift off..Not got a clue... Just glad to have carbs the occasional roar, pop, bang, and perhaps even a flame (dunno on the latter) on my old +8... oldgit drive

A lovely 50 mile run out over Dartmoor enjoying the quiet roads and autumnal colours and did I mention the heart attack on a plate at Princetown. Saw and waved to a lovely metal bumper MG midget with an hideous hard top in hearing aid beige.

The more I drive the Plus 8 the less likely I am to get a Plus Six on soundtrack alone I'm thinking now, still things can change grin2

They are both Morgan specific
I can supply both when you need them

I'm also looking forward to the 4cyl-edition, for 2 different reasons: it wil never drive as good as my GT4 and therefore doesn't need to have such high power output AND no turbo engine will ever sound as good, so... a 4cyl will do
now I need to convince Thommy-S to lower the drivers-seat laugh

Well, I'm pleased to read all the positive comments from fellow TMer's who are obviously car enthusiasts. The article I read in Magneto, whilst being generally in favour, said that it was disappointing for racing fans.

It would interesting to see how locked ECU's fit in with legislation to outlaw 'anti competition / price fixing' sometimes referred to as 'abuse of a dominant market position'

Originally OBD & OBD2 were standardised so that vehicles could be diagnosed & fixed by non OE sources

After I rebuild the dash, now every time when I move the gear stick I touch the wires underneath the dasch. I would like to place a cover underneath. I know modern Mogs have them, but the don't fit my 1980 4/4. So question: does anyone have a template of such a coverage?
