A short journey to visit family with a quick photo stop to capture some autumn colours.
Bright and sunny on the way there but colder for the return trip.

The shafts are different lengths on a BTR axle
The shorter one goes in the near side

Francis’ car also has non standard axle shafts, because it is fitted with an early iteration of the floating axle kit

Many thanks for posting the link to Bill`s tribute Brian. I got to know of Bill`s importance relative to Morgan importation to the US through the MSCC`s DG and eMog over quite a number of years, his work creating LPG fuelled Morgans in a work around ever increasing emission regulations and his MogVette design and build using a Corvette engine in a Trad Morgan... Seems there were many interesting pages in the book of Bills life, so sorry to read that it ended so soon.

I did not watch Tcherek`s tribute being too much of a softie and having read of it bringing tears to the eyes of some. I chatted back and forth with Tcherek over the years who was kind enough to post some pics of my European trips on her web site and even used a couple of my pics in the ISIS calendar over the years... Very much a Morgan family with a prominent member now missing, a great pity.

Yes, especially as there's at least one specialist who makes an electronic gizmo that cures all gauge to sender to tank shape inaccuracies for about £40

While I remember voices very well but I am rather mediocre at face recognition, Diana could work as a cold case profiler for the police. I asked, who is that, in less than 0.1 seconds later she said without any effort, Peter, "you can see that immediately".

After getting through several batteries bought from Halfords, I went for a Optima Red Top bought on eBay (new).

It has not let me down in 10 years.

One of the times the battery failed, I drove home from work perfectly fine. Stopped briefly at home, then when I jumped back in the car... Nothing.
Measured the battery, 2V. I suppose a cell's connection had failed.

I'm guessing that Morgans have a significantly different vibration profile to standard cars, and this causes frequent failures. So far, the spiral AGM battery has been perfect.

I always thought those headlights were an appalling design fault. Perhaps they would look better swapped and moved to the outside of the mudguards.

Possibly not quite as comprehensive as MMC, but they might be able to give you another pointer. smile


Thanks Graham. I'd been wondering about joining. Seems a better use for my "grey" pounds!

Hi Aerotaff

I've not had a problem with the oil gauge thankfully. I know the fans come on & I've used an infrared heat gun to check when they do come un (can't remember the reading now but it was within the generally accepted range).

If it isn't the gauge or the sensor I'm not sure what it could be. The Morgan specialist did a fault diagnosis & ruled out the ECU being at fault. The gauge only gives any find of sensible reading on a trailing throttle, otherwise it flickers wildly of just rests on the needle stop at the bottom.

At least I know it does not overheat, but it would be good to know what is going on with the coolant temp

I fitted brake reaction bars a couple weeks ago to ‘Morgie’ & can say that the front-end chassis/body ‘flex’ has virtually gone - not saying that the whole thing is now rigid though; that’s not the objective of fitting them, but, for this thread, it may help 🤷🏼‍♂️!

Would you know what happened to it?

Richard. I asked Alis. As I suspected he sold plenty of them but never personally owned one.
