This one fail with only 670 miles on the odometer and only a couple of months of ownership. My dealer went out of business so HOW DO I GET MORGAN TO SEND ME A NEW ONE?

It was the only one of the 4 that left a small rubber rub mark on the bonnet that I was writing off as frame flex causing the bonnet to shift and rub on the spot, like the shifting is always noticed on the plastic bumpers under the front edge of the bonnet.

Nice little clip, one thing missing was the Morgan smile of ownership. Love the colour of it I am biased of course.

It should be a leaky engine properly maintained but knowing the effort involved in rmoving the engine I can understand you leaving it alone

A friend has that stencuilled / moulded / coloured concrete with a sealed ( and shiny) finish. IMO it looks horrible.

Why not go for gravel. The oil will sink in, you can always rake it and if nevessary lob on another sack full.


We have a covenant on our house saying we must have a solid drive - no gravel or chippings. There are 8 houses in our street 4 blocks and 4 tarmac. The block ones need regular maintenance and the tarmac ones look dull.

As for the stag (this one is my third), Robsport rebuilt the engine in 2012 and at the minute its leaking oil, coolant and auto trans fluid! The coolant I've traced to a jubilee clip. Oil is from the front crank seal and the gearbox is leaking via the breather! It's all fun!

Good info on the drives though.


thanks

You were correct, but I was looking at the rear of the lighting bundle and it only had a 6 pin connector. Off to the passenger side turn signal area was a 4 pin that indeed has an unused pair of conductors that are hot!!! My bad for not finding it sooner but it is working the reverse lamp perfectly. A thousand thank you's , and may good luck and good health follow you forever :-)

This is good work. I am not trying to cast aspersions in any way here. Morgan Motors chose this design in order to pass certain EPA emissions tests regarding noise levels and the easiest way was to choke off the engine air. Part of the problem was the noise from the incoming air flow. I replaced the stock hockey puck as the engine couldn't breathe properly, in my estimation. No regrets. Far easier to just replace the air cleaner housing with something that allows air to flow.

I chose the 'Muscle Air Cleaner' from S&S and it has worked like a champ!

As for water ingress and driving in the rain that has not been an issue. The S&S rain shield fabric wrapped around the air cleaner filter does a very good job in removing, or reducing, the size of the water droplets entering the inlet so that is not an issue.

Final thought. The stock filter cover is a crappy design and deserves to be shelved. There are others out there that work quite well and don't need to be machined anew!

On other roads and particularly with the common "privacy" glass they block out forward vision for road users in normal cars, they take up more parking room, they cause more pollution because of bigger engines / greater fuel consumption. And it seems to me that what once was the BMW lane on the motorway is now populated by Range Rovers driven agressively and fast.

And a significant proportion seem to be driven by women who have no real feel for the size of the thing they are driving nor the speed its going at.

Ok interesting. Yellow is nature’s early spring colouring for the same basic reasons, insects see it more easily in the lower light of spring.

I've tried a trad many times Alistair, but I was never happy with the body flexing, the steering jerking in your hands, the suspension crashing. Thats the "classic experience" that many people buy a Morgan for and thats their choice. For me I want something much nearer to the best that modern engineering can give. It also helps to have something that I can easily get in and out of . Personal preferences.

The frustration comes about because you cannot use much of the increased performance that comes with modern engineering. Cars are now too fast and too powerful for the road system. I'm regularly overtaken by white vans / commercial vehicles for heavens sake! Is there any car on the road that cant do 100 mph?

Maybe its simply time to accept that the days when you could drive for fun are over. The roads are now for no more than getting from A to B slowly. Driving isnt for enthusiats but for everyone.

Waikiore the live stream is great but nothing beats being there so yes you are on the right track. We were a group of Australian, Austrian, British and French at Madgwick most of the time (surely you spotted us?) and had a wonderful weekend. A comment, not a complaint because this is a wonderful event, in comparison to previous years there were some big gaps in the racing and maybe the fields weren't quite as interesting as in the past. Maybe that's personal taste.

Next year we might have to give it a miss because Le Mans Classic is calling. Cheers. Kerry

A good idea but it won't work on a M3W. The seat belt fasteners are outboard, not inboard as on the cars.
Sorry. I had missed the fact it was a M3W thread. -

However, is it not possible to follow "the idea" of the strap and either
secure the manufactured strap to an inboard anchor ie. the inboard seat rail, or
. Alternatively use the existing passenger lap strap and, at the appropriate point along its length, affix a Tenex fastener to attach to a well placed matching Tenex fastener on the tonneau cover thereby securing the loose cover to the passenger seat lap strap anchor.

I can assure you that once the cover is secured under appropriate tension (as per pictures for my Trad) there is no flapping cover. It has transformed my driving with cover- which is 90% of my journeys.

We have had an offer from Henry Williams to loan his racing Morgan for the event.

Rich, Believe or not, I glanced at that M3W thinking how nice and "bright" it looked but I didn't clock the price. Good grief, you can buy a really nice car for that money. They sure have now got a good reputation for one off, different cars. It's nice to see and quite refreshing.
